Fantastic place!

We first visited 11 yrs ago, and have since been lucky to visit many lovely locations and hotels. We're not much for returning to same spots and would rather experience something new. But when it came to our 10th wedding anniversary, Maui and the Ritz at Kapalua was our top choice. We spent 10 beautiful days here. When a place is this fantastic, it's more than worth a repeat visit - and we hope to return again. Kapalua, though it can be windy or cloudy, is also lush and green, and spectacularly beautiful. It's less crowded, which we appreciate. The hotel is everything you'd expect out of a Ritz. It's lovely in a classic sort of way. Several employees we spoke to, had been there for 15-20 years, that says something about how they treat employees as well as guests. You will be pampered and it won't be cheap. But the cost is long forgotten and it's the memories that stay with us. As one reviewer put it (my husband and I still chuckle about it) - just give them your credit card, enjoy, and cry about it on the way home - it will give you motivation to go to work next Monday). Food is excellent - the breakfast buffet provides every option one could hope for. Veggie burger at the bar is surprisingly good. Banyan Tree is excellent - we had a small hiccup the evening of our original reservation, and were invited back. It was one of the best dining experiences we've had on the island. The Ritz is also a walk or a (free) shuttle ride away from several other gems in the area. Kapalua Bay beach offers snorkeling that is out of this world - we saw 20+ varieties of tropical fish, as well as turtles. Merriman's is an excellent restaurant - beautiful sunsets, and Plantation Course restaurant offers delicious breakfast with amazing views. If you're looking for a memorable stay, book the Ritz - just do it. To the ladies and gentlemen of the Ritz - Mahalo for wonderful hospitality and for making our anniversary even more memorable!

The Ritz on Maui

We now realize that this hotel is very close to a rain forest. So if you like gloomy days and lots of rain this is the place for you. A rental car is a must have because it will get you on the road and bring you to much sunnier sections of the island. You will be paying high to just get away from the hotel, a resort fee and $22 a day for that car to be parked. We only ate onsite once and that was a breakfast buffet on departing day. Way over priced for selections offered. Great restaurants are nearby. Rooms were comfortable. Polished wood floors are slippery so watch your step. A safe is literally placed on the floor of the closet so don't throw out your back getting down or up. This hotel was not our best choice for wanting a stay with sun, water and relaxation at this time of year.

Excellent Aloha Customer Service!

We enjoyed our quality time at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua. Perfect location (secluded), away from other resorts, beautiful ocean view, friendly staff and excellent aloha customer service. Dinner at the banquet meeting room was very delicious!

Ritz--Carlton Kapalua is the perfect hotel to unwind

We just got home from our 3rd stay at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua and are having trouble getting back to work. We loved our vacation there, the pools are so calm and relaxing with loads of open lounge chairs. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We ate at the pool and at the lobby bar. Be sure to try the Thai Chicken salad at the lobby bar. It was excellent! If your intention is to relax in Maui, this is the hotel for you!

This is a great venue for the whole family. Nice pool, great food, and terrific service. This is far from all of the other resorts. It is unique in location, but the number of services are outstanding, especially if you are a golfer.
