Wailea Beach Resort By Marriott
Aloha! I'm embarking on a trip to Hawaii with a couple of my friends and family in June, (the first city on our crazy trip around the world), and realized I've never written about one of my favorite places to stay in Hawaii, The Wailea Beach Resort by Marriott in Maui. In this post, I'm going to share some photos and my experience staying here last December.
The whole check in process went very smoothly. We were greeted at our car and escorted to the check-in area. Our bags were taken and we were given necklaces and welcome drinks. The lobby is very open and surrounded by greenery. Upon check-in the staff were very welcoming and took the time to show us where everything was located around the resort. Overall the check-in process was very efficient and felt personal.
Our room was nicely appointed and spacious. We stayed in a junior suite located on the 7th floor. Everything about the room was on par with what you'd normally find at a high-end resort. Good size bathroom, comfortable bed, nice TV and living room.
Location is one of the most important things to me when it comes to finding accommodation. I enjoy hanging out at the pool/beach, but I also like doing things around where I'm staying. This resort was the best of both worlds. There were many things to do there, (golf, scuba-dive, surf, spa, etc.), and also a lot nearby that we could walk to. The resort was gorgeous and surrounded by all kinds of plants and palm trees.
This is hands down one of the most stunning resorts I've ever stayed at. Everywhere I went felt like something out of a movie. My favorite part of the entire place was the pools.
What good is a resort with a couple of great pools? This resort had a family pool, an adults-only section with overwater cabanas and an additional infinity pool. One of my favorite activities is to hang out and swim so I enjoyed this more than anything. Here are some photos I took before getting in.
This resort is one of my favorites because of how picture perfect the entire place is. The pools are over the top, the activities were fantastic and I even got a chance to scuba dive (picture below). The staff was very attentive and helpful and the rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. If this is a place you're interested in staying at, consider booking with points as cash rates are usually $600+ a night.
