Situated on one of Wailea’s loveliest strips of sand, the Four Seasons Maui is lauded as one of the Valley Isle’s most exquisite resorts. As a five-star resort, the Four Seasons is stocked with amenities and luxury services. However, the Maui resort goes above and beyond to be stewards of Hawaiian culture and ensure guests feel welcome.
Before staying, you should know these 10 things about the Four Seasons Wailea.
10 Things To Know About Four Seasons Wailea Before Your Stay
1. The resort offers prime access to Wailea Beach and other hotels and restaurants via the Wailea Beach Path.
Beaches, luaus, shopping centers, and countless restaurants and bars are within walking distance of the Four Seasons resort. Guests are only steps from the golden sands at Wailea Beach, while Ulua Beach and Polo Beach are just a short walk away. Meanwhile, the Shops of Wailea and top-rated luaus like the Feast At Mokapu are no more than a 15 minutes walk from the resort. In addition, you’ll soak in striking coastal views while strolling the Wailea Beach Path.
2. A number of unforgettable cultural activities are offered to guests free of charge.
Hula lessons, lei making, garden tours, and torch lighting are some of the memorable cultural experiences offered to guests at the Four Seasons.
However, the most thrilling activity available is outrigger canoe paddling. On select mornings, guests are invited to join a paddling excursion from Wailea Beach. You’ll learn traditional paddling protocol and hear engrossing tales of Maui and the neighboring islands. Plus, in whale season, this paddling excursion doubles as a whale watch.
Also, one of the most cultural experiences you can have on Maui is very close by. A luau is the display of cultural traditions that have been taking place for hundreds of years. Although the Four Seasons does not have its own luau, we think you will find the nearby luaus at the Andaz and the Grand Wailea to be some of the best on the island.
3. The property boasts three pools, including a private, adults-only area.
Each of the Four Seasons Maui’s three pools features unique, eloquent designs with distinctly different atmospheres. The Fountain Pool aptly features a large fountain at its center and a collection of first-come-first-serve lounge chairs and cabanas. The Waterfall Pool is ideal for families, with a waterslide, wading areas, and cabanas. Last but not least, the serene oasis at the adults-only Serenity Pool is the resort’s most lavish pool. With an underwater music system, plush cabanas, panoramic views, and a swim-up bar, you’ll hardly have a reason to leave.
4. The resort can arrange a shuttle or car service for transportation around Wailea.
If you decide to forgo a rental car or want to hit the town for a few drinks, the Four Seasons can arrange a complimentary car service. The service is available to all of Wailea, so luaus, golf courses, and restaurants are at your fingertips.
5. There are three world-class restaurants on the property.
The Four Seasons is synonymous with five-star dining. You’ll have a run of choices at the resort, including Wolfgang Puck’s Spago, Ferraro’s Bar e Ristorante, and DUO Steak and Seafood. All three boast world-class service and fantastic ocean views.
Also located in the resort is the Lobby Lounge, renowned for its craft cocktails and inventive pupus, and the Beachwalk Cafe, a sleek coffee joint steps from the sand at Wailea Beach. Of course, in-room and poolside dining are also available to all guests.
6. Accommodations are flawlessly designed and feature 65-inch flatscreen TVs, Nespresso machines, personal iPads, and private balconies.
After a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2016, the Four Seasons has some of the nicest rooms in Wailea. The beds alone are worth writing home about, with temperature control technology and a pillow menu to boot.
Accommodations are stocked with lavish amenities, including personal iPads, which guests can use to order 24-hour room service, book spa appointments, check the daily activity schedule, or contact housekeeping. In addition, the luxe marble bathrooms feature elegant bathtubs and separate showers.
7. The Four Seasons features an extensive wellness program with an on-site spa, IV therapies, and nutrition assessments.
The Four Seasons spa is one of the best on the island. In addition to traditional spa therapies like massages and facials, the Four Seasons spa features initiatives like acupuncture and guided meditation. Furthermore, the resort is in collaboration with Next|Health to offer a range of IV therapies and nutrition assessments, such as food sensitivity tests. The Maui resort truly is a retreat for the mind, body, and soul.
8. Guests have access to an exceptional indoor/outdoor fitness center, well-stocked game room, tennis courts, and fitness classes.
Guest amenities at the Four Seasons go beyond what you might find at a typical resort. Active guests will relish the resort’s fitness center and the slew of classes offered, which include HIIT, SUP yoga, barre, pilates, and more. Alternatively, the plush game room caters to kids and adults alike, with table tennis, foosball, and a separate video game room.
9. The Aloha Suite is available for showering and changing for guests who arrive early or depart late.
Check-in is at 3:00 pm, and check-out is at noon. With mainland flights sometimes arriving early and departing late, the Four Seasons provides guests with an Aloha Suite to shower and freshen up before or after a flight.
10. Wifi, pool cabanas, and snorkel equipment are complimentary, and there’s no resort fee!
With the countless amenities on offer, it’s impossible not to find something you enjoy at the Four Seasons. The best part? There’s no resort fee! Whether you’re keen on kicking back in a poolside cabana or exploring the reefs off Wailea Point, the Four Seasons allows all guests to embrace the resort’s magic without extra fees.
