Quiet Beaches and Five Star Amenities in Kapalua
Kapalua is located approximately ten miles North of Lahaina at the foot of the lush West Maui mountains. The breathtaking Kapalua shoreline is lined with five bays (two of which are marine sanctuaries) and three white-sand beaches. The Kapalua Resort is home to the Ritz Carlton Kapalua, several award-winning restaurants, boutique shops, two renowned golf courses and a luxurious Spa.
When I am asked where families can get away from the crowds, enjoy quite beaches and still have five star amenities available to them in Maui, I answer: A perfect five star family reunion getaway can be found at the seven bedroom Kapalua Manor in the Kapalua Resort.
Kapalua Manor is a 11,000 sq. ft. gated, ocean-view estate directly across the street from the beautiful and secluded Oneloa Bay. This is the perfect family reunion house. Don’t worry, the kids won’t get bored here as there is a kids entertainment/game room in addition to the main living room. There is also a huge family room with a bar, TV and a pool table, as well as two hot tubs, a kids pool and the main pool so no one has to be left out.
Take a morning stroll on the many walking paths throughout the resort or just spend a quiet day at the beach. For dinner I highly recommend Merriman’s Kapalua. You can dine directly on the ocean with sweeping ocean and mountain views – spectacular! Arrive before sunset and enjoy a cocktail on the patio area, and after dinner take your coffee next to the fire pit.
For a starter drink at Merriman’s Kapalua I suggest a “One of a Kind Mai Tai.” For a main course try the Macadamia Nut Crusted Ono, simply delicious! Ninety of the Merriman’s menu is fresh and locally grown or caught. If you have room for desert, I highly recommend the Maui Gold Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
