The Wailea Beach Resort – Marriott, Maui today announced the completion of its sweeping $100 million transformation set to debut Dec. 24, 2016.
Inspired by its iconic Wailea Beach oceanfront location and the restorative power of the sea, resort executives say the comprehensive transformation ushers in a new era of modern elevated services and memories for Wailea’s original resort.
The entirely transformed contemporary resort features a reimagined arrival experience, six new dining options including Humble Market Kitchin by Roy Yamaguchi, three new distinct pool environments, and 547 redesigned rooms and suites, along with the total modernization of all indoor/outdoor meeting and event spaces, fitness center and spa.
The resort’s proximity to the ocean inspires new guest programming, delivered by the resort’s associates.
“We are thrilled to introduce guests and the community to our transformed resort, and to the enduring and evolving spirit of Maui that makes a visit to the island so memorable,” said Thomas Foti, general manager, Wailea Beach Resort – Marriott, Maui. “With a rich history as Wailea’s first resort and our desirable location just steps from the water’s edge, we look forward to welcoming our guests to discover the new Wailea Beach Resort.”
As the closest resort to the Wailea shoreline, the design creates synergy with the ocean through clean lines and simplicity in architecture, maximizing its proximity to the water, resort executives said.
Each facet of the renovation evokes a strong sense of place, according to resort representatives. The resort’s layout across 22 acres offers both intimate alcoves for relaxing and large spaces for gathering, befitting romantic retreats, family time or meetings.
