Ritz Carlton Kapalua
- What's Included
We traveled here to see the Sentry Champions Tour. It was a great tournament and the hotel supported it beautifully. They shuttled us to and from the tournament usually in less then 5 minutes. The hotel rooms were nicely appointed but were very small. The beach was a long walk from the hotel and was actually public. The service was the best thing about this hotel. The lobby was nice but needs big time updating.
At first arrival I wasn't sure what to make of the property. It's big, but not particularly modern, and needs some updating.. But the quality is still there. Everything was impeccable. Thick solid doors, nice beautiful moldings, and the elevators were stunning. The room was comfortable, spacious, and spotless. The pools were clean, and the pool-side service was exceptional. For $25 we paid for access to the spa, which included a whirlpool, sauna, wet sauna, and relaxation area.. It was worth every penny IMO. The property is big, so it's easy to get away from other people if you want some space. It also has a great proximity to some nice hiking trails if that's your cup of tea. (It's mine). The beach wasn't too crowded, although the waves were pretty substantial that I wouldn't recommend it for someone with small children.
We enjoyed our week here. The place was located away from other hotels and shoppings but that was part of the attractions for us. Food was great. We loved the Burger Shack that was located conveniently by the beach.
You don’t have to spend a thousand (plus) a night to breakfast with people who do.The Terrace Cafe at the Ritz is breakfast, not brunch, but every day. And, if you are me on Maui, you forget what day of the week it is. And if it’s the Ritz, with a breakfast like this, who needs Sunday brunch?If you are staying elsewhere on Maui, it’s an easy drive and the grounds are beautifully landscaped. Note that the only parking option is valet so pull right up to the front door like you know what you are doing. Tell them you are there for whatever meal and they won’t bury your car so when you leave it’s there in a twinkle and you are happy to tip the valets - they don’t charge you for this service. So tip them!They DO, however, charge you for breakfast, but it is SO worth it. You can order off the menu but the buffet is the way. I am not usually a pastry kind of gal but oh my the coconut Danish oh my. The lovely server said I really must try their signature warm pineapple puff pastry, too, and who am I to argue?Everything was delicious and lovely and worthy of breakfast at the Ritz. Note to chef: asparagus with crab was very tasty but this is the wrong hemisphere for asparagus in January. Just saying.
This was our first stay on the property. We spent 6 nights here and had a great time. Everything was outstanding - excellent service, beautiful property (rooms, pool, grounds), and food (brunch, and a nice dinner at the banyan tree). our concierge Thomas hooked us up with several days of activities at our request including making great suggestions on our self guided road to hana, a snorkel/whale watching tour, reserving a car for us (enterprise rents on the property), and reserving spa time. I saw some spotty reviews recently for this property, but this was not our experience at all. we have stayed in some fancy places with high levels of service and this ranked right up there with the best of them. There was indeed a self park option ($22 rather then $30 for valet) while we were there and it worked out just fine to use that.
