A quiet retreat on secluded Paipu Beach.

Each suite offers a fully equipped kitchen, separate living/dining area and en-suite washer and dryer. This beachfront resort features two swimming pools, two whirlpool spas, four tennis courts and 90 holes of championship golf at the nearby Wailea and Makena Golf Courses, where guests enjoy preferred rates. Amenities include $155 in resort credits for dining and spa services at nearby resorts, parking, hi speed Wi-Fi internet access, phone calls, housekeeping and a Maika'i grocery discount card.

Beautiful property wonderful visit will come again. We are multi year visitors and have been pleased each year. Staff is very accommodating and quick to respond. Interested to see how the sale to a large hotel chain impacts the quality of service.

No. This is a condo complex. The pool is nice, especially for a quick dip to get rid of the sand after being on one of the two great beaches within walking distance. But no food or drink services unless you have your kids... More
