For another side of Wailea—an experience further removed from the luxury resorts strung together like priceless pearls on Wailea Beach—Hotel Wailea, Relais & Châteaux is an oasis in the hills where you can stretch out with the same degree of splendor and sophistication. Aspen-level lodge vibes greet you the moment you step into its swoon-worthy lobby—open-framed and high-ceilinged with exposed beams that snare the most gorgeous and generous offerings of natural sunshine—an adults-only property that’s truly love at first sight (or, more accurately, first light). Terraced below, an upscale pool serving fresh, locally sourced cocktails, and above, opulent cuisine at the new and updated Restaurant at the Hotel Wailea (the former Capische) that begs to be dined at during sunset.
