The Hotel Wailea was recently ranked the #1 resort in Hawaiʻi in the Condé Nast Traveler magazineʻs 31st annual Readers’ Choice Awards. This is the second year in a row the hotel was ranked the #1 resort in Hawaiʻi in the Readersʻ Choice Awards.

“We are honored to have fulfilled our commitment of providing guests with memorable lifetime experiences and look forward to continuing to raise the bar on laid-back luxury,” hotel owner Jonathan McManus said.

Hotel Wailea is an all-suite hotel that aims to offer intimacy and privacy for adult couples. The hotel also offers various programs for its guests, including seven-course treehouse dining, vintage Porsche cruising, and interactive cooking classes.

“We are thrilled to maintain top recognition in Hawaiʻi from the discerning readers of Condé Nast Traveler, validating our work with Private Label Collection to position Hotel Wailea as the premiere adults-only island escape in the Pacific,” McManus said. “Since becoming an adults-only property in 2015, our team has put tremendous focus on offering our guests the best in cuisine, experience, atmosphere, and service.”

Nearly half a million Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted ratings for the awards based on their travel experiences.


Set across 15 acres, Hotel Wailea features a beach house design in all its 72 one-bedroom suites. The hotel’s culinary program uses local ingredients, including produce grown in it’s own farm. The hotel also recently launched aerial silks and yoga classes.


The 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards are available on Condé Nast Traveler’s website.
