The luxurious 4-star The Kapalua Villas offers their guests the opportunity to not only enjoy their own beautiful property, but the entire 1,600-acre Kapalua Resort. Enjoy the luxurious Kapalua Spa, 12 inspired dining locations, Golf Academy and 2 world-class golf courses, award-winning Kapalua Tennis Garden, 8 dual zip lines, and 5 beautiful beaches and bays.
There are three distinct areas on the property where the villas are located. On a bluff overlooking Oneloa Bay, the ocean front Bay Villas complex includes two private tennis courts and three swimming pools and barbeque areas and are just a short walk to beautiful Kapalua Bay Beach.
The Ridge Villas are higher up on a promontory overlooking the bay and offer stunning views of the ocean and the island of Molokai, with two recreational areas with swimming pools and barbeque areas. For avid golfers, the Golf Villa complex would be ideal with its magnificent views of The Bay Golf Course and the island of Molokai in the distance. There are four recreational areas in the complex with swimming pools and barbeque areas.
The Kapalua Villas also offers door-to-door shuttle service to the hotels, shops, restaurants and the beaches for swimming, snorkeling and other activities with an on-site full service concierge and activity desk, as well as 24-hour reception center and security. Additional services afforded by a daily villa resort fee include high-speed Internet and preferred rates at the Kapalua Resort golf courses.
If you plan on eating some meals in your condo, you may pick up some hot breakfasts and local and deli-style lunches and groceries at the Honolua Store. There is also a Safeway (open 24 hours) and a Foodland in Lahaina, where you can stock up on necessities. Kapalua is an upscale area, so prices will be higher there. But there are some wonderful restaurants in the Kapalua Villas area including Merriman’s Kapalua, Pineapple Grill, The Plantation House and Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar.
If you’re looking for more moderate prices, check out the many restaurants in Lahaina. For a great breakfast, be sure not to miss The Pioneer Inn in Lahaina, where they’ve been serving breakfast for years in their Snug Harbor Bar and on the lanai looking out to historic Lahaina Harbor. The Inn was built on the harbor in 1901 and is considered a must for breakfast by both residents and visitors alike.
What to do in Maui besides watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets? Play golf, play tennis, visit Iao Valley where King Kamehameha fought his final battle in his conquest of Maui, whale watch from November to March, snorkel at Molokini, swim with Hawaiian green sea turtles, ride horses through a rainforest, go deep sea fishing, or take a helicopter tour to mention a few activities.
But then for the ultimate experience, you could simply get up at 2:30 in the morning, drive about 2-1/2 hours up an often fog shrouded mountain, then stand at the edge of one of the largest dormant volcanoes in the world with a wind chill factor about 20 degrees (on a good day) and at that point begin wondering why on earth you’re there. But when the sun comes up on the opposite side of Haleakala Crater and rays of light pierce the clouds and mists that are in the crater below you, you’ll know why you’re there – because no where else on earth can you experience such an awe inspiring sight and leave with a memory that will last forever.
