The Ritz-Carlton Maui, Kapalua recently announced the final phase of a $100 million resort-wide transformation, set to be unveiled by the end of 2022. Located across 54 acres of pristine, wide-open space overlooking Honokahua Bay, The Ritz-Carlton Maui, Kapalua is a sanctuary for guests seeking a luxurious escape.
“The driving force behind this project is providing our guests with an unrivaled experience that can only be found in Kapalua,” said Andrew Rogers, general manager, The Ritz-Carlton Maui, Kapalua. “This transformation brings new beauty and new energy to our surrounding environment as the entire resort celebrates our unique sense of place. Our team of talented Hawaii-based architects, designers and builders worked closely with our longtime cultural advisor Clifford Naeʻole to achieve our vision for the future of the resort as a luxury destination.”
When guests arrive, they will be welcomed by bright and colorful native flowers flowing into the all-new lobby lanai, featuring stunning views of the Honokahua Bay. The breathtaking infinity-edge lanai honors Hawai’ian culture and tells the story of Kapalua. It also features hand-carved wooden kapa panels symbolizing the six bays surrounding the resort that were favorites of the Hawai’ian chiefs.
The new guestrooms will embrace Maui’s natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. All guestrooms, suites and residences will have private terraces, and the delicate sand tones and custom wood finishes will evoke a feeling of calm and serenity. The rooms will feature azure blue and deep green accents, representing the vibrant hues of the sparkling ocean and lush flora, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows that welcome the island environment into the room.
