Known for being a lover’s paradise, Maui is a dream destination for couples and honeymooners. Lovebirds come here to immerse in total peace and quiet. The last thing you want is to have your vacation ruined by screaming children in the hotel pool or an early morning call by noisy, floor-stomping children in the room above. To enjoy an idyllic holiday, where you can sip your champagne on the sunbed, lose track of time lounging by the pool, and indulge in romantic candlelit dinner – without interference, an adults-only hotel is the way to go! In Maui, Hotel Wailea with a strict over-16 policy is your luxury sanctuary!
Hotel Wailea: Hawai`i’s Only Relais & Châteaux Hotel
Tucked away on a hill 300 feet above sea level, Hotel Wailea overlooks Maui’s southern coastline with sweeping views of the surrounding islands. It is easy to see why it was named by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the most romantic places to stay in the world. The 72-suite resort spanning 15 acres offers a luxurious, intimate stay amid lush tropical surroundings. You will have no trouble finding true serenity here.
Being the only hotel in Hawai‘i given the Relais & Châteaux accreditation, Hotel Wailea upholds first-class hospitality standards as other luxury hoteliers in the world. At the property, you can expect a holistic experience – one that involves exceptional food created by the best local ingredients, and activities connecting you to the cultural heritage and natural environment of Hawai‘i.
Exclusive Guest Privileges
Hotel Wailea goes extra miles to pamper you and make you feel special, including complimentary valet services and Mercedes limousine service to take you to areas of Wailea. You will also enjoy beach valet services at the nearby Wailea Beach, where you will be supplied with beachfront lounge chairs, umbrellas, bottled water and beach towels.
You’ll rest easy surrounded by the stylish beach house decor and comfortable furnishings in the spacious suite. The 720 square feet of space blends indigenous island character with a modern sensibility. The suite encompasses a bedroom separate from the living area, a bathroom with a marble-backed rain shower and a deep soaking tub, a kitchenette equipped with everything you need (from dishes, cutlery, microwave, fridge, sub-zero freezer and toaster to Nespresso machine!), and a private lanai complete with a chaise lounge and chairs to enjoy incredible sunsets over the Pacific Ocean.
Complimentary Wi-Fi and cable TV are available in the suite to provide you the comfort of having modern conveniences within easy reach!

The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea
The food is second to none here at The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea. The award-winning restaurant will take you on a gastronomic journey that is full of spectacular surprises.
Creative dishes made with carefully selected local, seasonal ingredients and inspired by European cuisines form the heart of the menu, which changes based on what’s readily available from the island’s own farms and fisherman. Start your meal with kampachi crudo (USD$30) to stimulate your appetite. Then, indulge yourself in the signature heartwarming truffle risotto (USD$21) and wonderfully fresh and aromatic nori-spiced ahi (USD$54). Lastly, end the night on a sweet note with the chocolate napoleon (USD$16).
The enchanting views of West Maui promise to take the fine dining experience to another dimension, making your evening ultra-unforgettable!
Facilities & Activities
There’s no shortage of options to help you relax and recharge during your stay at Hotel Wailea. With a pool, hot tub, and spacious poolside cabana on-site, you can spend the whole day just sipping cocktails and soaking up the sun!
Or you can jog on a treadmill while enjoying incredible ocean views at the 24-hr open-air wellness studio. Many complimentary fitness classes are held here, including aerial yoga classes, vinyasa yoga classes, and an all-level bootcamp workout.
To unwind after a hard day of sightseeing, book a spa treatment and relax in the privacy and comfort of your own suite.
To experience the best of Maui, I highly recommend taking advantage of the activities Hotel Wailea offers. Complimentary to hotel guests, the Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe Experience is a unique and fun way to learn about the ancient culture and history of Hawaiian canoeing. As you paddle along the South Coast of Maui, you relive a part of the Hawai‘ian history. You might even have a chance to meet the Hawai‘ian green sea turtles!
Island Beach Safari will set you off on a journey to seek out Maui’s best-hidden beaches, with a gourmet picnic prepared by the chefs. You can even go vintage and do this in a 1957 Porche Speedster! Ocean lovers can go on a romantic sunset dinner cruise along the Pali coast of Maui with Ali‘i Nui, or learn kiteboarding through a one-on-one session with Kiteboarding Academy.
Hotel Wailea not only brings you the luxury and blissful tranquillity you deserve, but also allows you to experience Hawai‘i in an authentic way! Are you ready for a romantic island getaway to Maui?

Oh my! I wish I would have gone here on my honeymoon! This is truly paradise!!!! The food looks amazing and how cool is that view when you are on the treadmill?!?! I love that they provide complimentary Wi-Fi and cable TV 🙂
It is the perfect place for a honeymoon in Maui! With no disturbance from kids! And the views from the resort are stunning!
I want some of the fish. I spent a week in Hawaii back in 2009 and never went in the ocean. Still had a great time though!
Wow, this place truly looks like a relaxing oasis! I’d love to check this out — everything looks amazing. The food looks so appetizing, too! 🙂 I LOVE that they have a wellness studio on-site — how cool!
The food is the highlight here! One of the best restaurants in Maui.
Maui is an exotic destination & spending time at Hotel Wailea looks perfect. I loved the decor and the opulence of the rooms & amenities. Thanks for sharing your experience!
We loved the spacious suite which came with so many convenient amenities! Hope you get to visit someday!
That’s a gorgeous hotel, I do love the Relais and Chateaux properties, all unique, but all so classy and great service too! Were there many honeymooners staying there?
Yes, plenty! It was my first time staying at a Relais & Chateaux property and I’m loving it!
You know that hotels with swimming pools are killing me and this is exactly what this hotel is doing. I would love to see it when I go to Maui and go on a sailing boat.
That swimming pool is such a great place to relax and spend an afternoon! In the evening, you can see the stars shining above you!
What a beautiful property! I’m at a stage in life where I do travel with my kids, but I’m picturing a future where this place could totally pamper me! Loving the outrigger canoe experience too!
A place to keep in mind if you ever travel without kids or go with them when they grow up! That canoe experience is a fun activity to learn about Hawai`i history!
Wow envy!! Really want to go to Maui someday.
You should! Hope you get to visit one day!
This hotel looks GORGEOUS! So romantic – love the decor, and the lush jungle setting. I also love that they have complimentary yoga classes – this seems like the perfect place to connect with yourself and nature. Would love to spend a week here.
Right? I’d love to go back again to try that aerial yoga class! Too bad this time we didn’t have enough time to try it.
This looks like an absolute dream – even the gym!
I’d never seen an open-air gym like that before. Such a gorgeous view!
Wow, that is indeed the height of luxury in Maui! We should have stayed there!
You must stay there the next time you visit Maui!
It looks great. It makes you want to leave your kids at home and go relax a bit! 🙂 Beautiful scenery, love those views!
You deserve quality alone time and serious pampering!
Looks like a beautiful property! I’ve only been to Maui once when I was very young, but I’d love to go back.
You should totally do that! Visit during the rainy season to see the humpback whales! It is so memorable!
What a gorgeous and luxuries hotel! The food looks great an dI really like those masie one person rattan chairs!
The food is superb there! One of the best on the island!
I’ve never heard of an adults only honeymoon! This sounds truly romantic. What an amazing natural setting. And the food sounds great–I really like the sound of that chocolate napoleon. A perfect natural getaway!
Seriously the best place to have a honeymoon in Maui! The service and food are top-notch here!
What a beautiful Hotel, I bet being there was so relaxing their room was look amazing plus the pool and the beach look enjoying. Looks like a great place to get pampered and revel in luxury. The fact that there are no children around ensures serenity.
I’d never stayed at an adult-only hotel, but it makes a great difference! It was a memorable experience for us!
Holy gorgeousness! I’m in love with Hawai’i, but I haven’t made it to Maui yet. When I do, though, I want to stay here! That first shot down over that patio seating… WOW! I also love that it’s adults only. I don’t not like kids, but there’s a time and a place sometimes.
Maui is gorgeous! You will love it! And I know you’ll enjoy Hotel Wailea when you visit 🙂
What a relaxing oasis. You have a real back for finding the spots to kick back and enjoy yourself.This looks like a great adult adventure!
A great place to have some peace and quiet! Also love the unique activities it offers!
Yep, a real paradise for honeymooners and people seeking some relaxation and privacy. It;s the first time I have actually heard about a adulty only hotel and I’m sure this will definitely be beneficial to many. In love with the property overall, children or not, it will definitely be a memorable stay.
It was my first time staying at an adult only hotel too! The property is so beautiful and the friendly staff really made an effort to make our stay memorable!
What!! I wanna go just for the comp aerial yoga classes! I like your cardio style- no shoes, haha! The food at Hotel Wailea looks so yummy, it’s almost too pretty to eat. We stayed at an adults-only resort in Greece and I gotta give whoever came up with the adults-only idea mad props. I love kids but not when I’m trying to relax and have a good time! Trying to savor the no-kids life while it lasts 😛
From now on, I can only stay at an adult-only hotel 😛 Not that I’m anti-kids, but sometimes you just want to have a good time without all the disturbance!
So luxurious!! I want to go to an adult-only hotel one day, it sounds so exclusive haha!! This hotel looks perfect!
You should try! It allows you to enjoy some quality time with your loved one!
Complimentary fitness classes sound great. Not many hotels provide that facility at least in Asia. I think it is a great idea to holiday in a adult only hotel. Kids are great company but sometimes you just want a quick romantic get-away.
It is so great that they offer complimentary yoga classes – it is something I wish I took advantage of during my stay!
Oh damn, it is really a paradise, without kids screaming 😀 in Hawai, at the beach, with swimming pool, vegetation around and awesome food with your partner, what we can ask more??? Perfect place!!
SO TRUE! There are many times where my vacation time got ruined because someone was screaming and stomping next door. This hotel is the best for adults who want to have some quality vacation time!
When I’m lucky enough to have a partner, this would be the perfect place to take her in Hawaii. The Hotel Wailea and it’s adult only policy makes for a romantic getaway!
It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway! I hope you get to visit one day!
Is that you in seat 1 Cat? You know Jenn and I raced outrigger for several season. Jenn was our race steersman (seat 6) and I was usually seat 3 or 4. Our first trip to Catalina Island we paddled there – all 26 miles. Why not paddle when you’re on the islands. This looks like a fabulous property.
Yes, that’s me! I have no idea why I was put on the front seat (maybe because I was a little late :P). I didn’t know that you did outrigger racing! We should set one up when I visit!
Oh my gosh! This hotel looks absolutely beautiful! Seriously the suite is bigger than my house! I would love to visit Hawaii and stay here!
I think the suite is the size of my house – but prettier and tidier! All the convenient amenities made us feel at home!
What an amazing hotel! I feel like we should splurge next time we’re in Maui and spend a couple of nights here. There pampering alone would be worth it.
You should, Jennifer! You will feel like a VIP there!
This hotel is gorgeous! I had no expectations for it to look the way it did, and it’s so beautifully decorated! The suites are also very large, and the food looks delicious! I may have to book an adults only hotel in the future for my boyfriend and I!
It is a wonderful destination for a romantic getaway! I’m sure you and your bf will love it!
I do love children, but when I want to really relax I would love to find some real quiet…this place looks (and sounds) like the perfect hotel to do so! Adding it to my list of hotels to try 🙂
Yes, mama needs pampering too! This is the perfect place to do so! Hope you like it when you visit!
Wow this is one gorgeous and luxurious hotel! I’ve never been to Hawaii before and heard that it’s very expensive. This hotel is for sure expensive, but i guess it’s all worth it?
It is totally worth it! Even if you can’t stay for the entire trip, one or two night would be fantastic!
Oh wow. This hotel looks fantastic. The idea of a child-free hotel is a great one. I’m not anti-children but I’m sure we have all been to hotels where the swimming pool is just one big ball of shrieking haha. Your photographs are beautiful, too.
I have seen that in other hotels in Maui. It is a nightmare and seriously, I really can’t stand the shrieking and splashing in the pool. If you want privacy and tranquility, an adult-only hotel is the way to go!
Now this really does look like the ideal spot to spend a honeymoon or anniversary! Certainly, the views are spectacular while the food has me salivating from here! Good to see that they managed to marry the local aesthetic with modern efficiency. Great post and some fabulous photos
Thank you, Gareth! I still could not forget the delicious food there! The seafood was so fresh. All the dishes are mouthwatering and beautifully presented!
Love the ambiance of the place. So green and surrounded by nature. Loved the sunset shot….the view can’t get any better.
The resort isn’t by the beach, but the views are stunning there!
Adult only resorts let us truly relax … peace! This place looks lovely and we will check it out when we got to Hawaii! The dessert looks delicious!
You’re right! If you visit, you certainly need to try their food!
The place looks luxurious. Though I am completely sold on the idea of Adults only resorts as I don’t like screaming kids but my husband is very fond of kids. Will make a note of the resort for sure.
Definitely keep this place in mind when you get a chance to travel without kids!
I can easily see here why hotel Wailea is amongst the most romantic getaways in the world. The layout and the feel of the place is phenomenal. Luxury for sure, but somehow still remaining down to earth in typical tropical style. And those culinary creations! What!
Luxury, privacy, service – it has everything you’re looking for for a romantic island vacation. On top of that, The food is phenomenal!
Such a lovely hotel and I always prefer couples’ hotels over family hotel, without the running or crying kids when all I need is just a peaceful holiday.
I know you’ll be a fan of this hotel, Allison!
So, I’ve never been to an adults only hotel but this looks amazing! I don’t have children and they don’t necessarily annoy me but I could definitely enjoy an adult only location. Do you know if they cater to vegans at all? If so, I’d definitely put this on my list whenever I make it Maui.
There are so dishes that are vegan-friendly. I’m sure the chef would be happy to accommodate any request. The best thing to do would be to make sure they are aware of your dietary restriction when you make a reservation 🙂
This place looks so luxurious! Definitely a great place to stay. The food looks delicious as well!
It is such a beautiful property. Until today, I still think about the delicious food!
Wailea in Maui is one of most favourite destinations. It truly is the one the best places to escape for your honeymoon. I went to Wailea for mine and fell in love with this island. Hotel Wailea seems so serene. The island beach safari sounds like a unique activity that you should experience.
This looks like such a dream hotel. The suites look gorgeous, but lots of hotels can offer that. I think what stands out for me are your photos and descriptions of the grounds and the activities, the entire hotel looks really beautiful and very relaxing.
I absolutely love the idea of a adults-only hotel! The pictures are great and the experiences seems absolutely worthwhile 🙂
Complimentary Wi-Fi and cable TV are great add-ons as well!
