Immersing guests in an authentic Hawaiian experience deeply rooted in local culture, environmental adventure and a warm Aloha spirit, the resort proudly boasts newly transformed guest rooms, suites and residences, an enhanced lobby and pool experience, and new F&B outlet, Kai Café. Celebrating its milestone 25th anniversary, these new enhancements honor the last quarter of a century while ushering in a new wave of natural Aloha.
Embracing Maui’s natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, the new guest rooms, suites, and residences feature delicate sand tones, evoking feelings of calm and serenity while azure blue and deep green accents echo the captivating hues of the sparkling ocean and lush flora. Floor-to-ceiling windows welcome the island environment inside creating a unique sense of place found nowhere else. Celebrated for its expertise in Hawaiian culture and design, noted Philpotts & Associates Interior Design team’s vision for the new room interiors infuses Ritz-Carlton sophistication with contemporary furnishings and a Hawaiian sense of place.
Creating a memorable stay from the moment of arrival, the resort’s elevated lobby experience is inspired by the Hawaiian word, Mana, meaning the power of the elemental forces in nature embodied in an object or person. Intimate lighting and elements of fire meld beautifully with organic lines and textures to create a seamless indoor-outdoor feeling. Catch a Kapalua sunset from the lobby lanai or witness the traditional Sunset Ceremony with a signature Mai Tai in hand.
The 10,000 square foot tri-level pool and 20,000 square foot sun deck are now accompanied by newly imagined Cabana Suites complete with butler service, flat screen televisions, and a private refrigerator. Refreshed landscaping, including the addition of puakenikeni trees, hibiscus and lauhala, provides a peaceful, authentic setting that reflects a true sense of Maui.
Located on the lobby level of the resort, the new island-modern Kai Café is the perfect place to begin the day. Offering a tantalizing array of house-made pastries, organic smoothies, fresh local coffee and deli selections, tropical fruits, sandwiches, wraps, salads, and more, guests can choose to enjoy their meal basking in stunning ocean views or take items to go enjoy at their favorite locale.
While exciting new additions and transformations bring a new wave of Hawaiian luxury for the resort, The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua remains an unaltered escape steeped in impeccable service and authentic local culture. Located at the sacred shores of Honokahua, The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua continues to offer its guests a unique sense of place, discovery of self, and unforgettable memories for its guests.
