Located on the beautiful island of Maui - voted the Best Island in the World by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler - the Grand Wailea offers spacious beachfront accommodations designed for pure luxury and relaxation.

The Grand Wailea Resort features the best pools and water activities in Maui. Our Wailea Canyon Activity Pool is for the kid in everyone, with waterslides, rapids, a rope swing, and more. The nine pools on six different levels are connected by a river that carries swimmers along whitewater rapids and gentle currents. Wailea Canyon includes four jungle pools, four intertwining slides, a whitewater rapids slide, a Tarzan pool with rope swing, a sand beach, six waterfalls, caves, three Jacuzzis, an infant pool, the world's first water elevator, the Lava slide, Ana Puka slide, and a swim-up bar. The elegant Hibiscus Pool, reserved for adults, is a quiet retreat for sun and relaxation.

Voted 'Top 10 Spas in the United States' by CondŽ Nast Traveler and Travel & Leisure magazines, Spa Grande at the Grand Wailea is the best spa on Maui and one of the most luxurious resort spas in Hawaii. Spa Grande offers a wide array of treatments that reflect a balance between the traditions of the east, west, and ancient Hawaii. There is no Maui resort spa like it. It includes 40 treatment rooms in a 50,000 square-foot spa, the largest spa in Hawaii. It is famous for its exclusive Terme Hydrotherapy Circuit, a unique haven of water therapies featuring a Roman tub, saunas, cascading waterfalls, Swiss jet showers, a Japanese furo, and five specialty baths.

This award-winning resort is also near five championship, 18-hole, golf courses. Wailea Golf Club features three Maui golf courses, the Blue, Gold, and Emerald Courses, meticulously designed by the world's best golf architects. Discover some of Maui's best restaurants without even leaving the resort. From award winning restaurants like the HUMUHUMUNUKUNUKUAPUAA to world-renowned chefs like Alan Wong and his acclaimed AMASIA, the Grand Wailea Resort features a wide range of cuisine and casual dining options set in stunning Maui atmospheres.

And of course, just steps away from the Grand Wailea, is Wailea Beach, rated one of the best beaches on Maui and one of the top beaches in the world. Snorkel with green sea turtles. Kayak or stand-up paddleboard in Maui's warm waters. Or simply rent a cabana and watch a perfect Wailea Beach sunset. Whatever you desire on your Maui vacation, there is something for everyone at the Grand Wailea.

    Not wheelchair friendly

    The hotel is not very wheelchair friendly. There are not enough signs for wheelchair routes. It was embarrassing that to get to the Bistro Molokini we had to enter the restaurant through the service entrance. This was after pushing the wheelchair round and round trying to find an entrance without stairs. The first concierge that I spoke with told me that several activities that we attempted were wheelchair friendly---they were not. We could not push a wheelchair on a gravel path. No one told us about the ADA golf cart until our stay was mostly completed. I did not find out about it until I complained how difficult things were to the pool staff. When we checked in there were no wheelchair accessible rooms left even though we had requested one. The property is on a huge hill and it is difficult to push a wheelchair up the hills. The pool has a multitude of bridges to traverse which cannot be done with a wheelchair. Don't go!

    Great time had by all!!

    We had a great time at the Grand Wailea! Our vacation included 6 adults, 3 teenagers, 1 preteen and 3 kids under 3! There was plenty to do for all of us either by the pool or by the beach. We opted for a king bed and pull out couch. The pullout out was plenty comfortable and my 16 and 11 year old did not complain. Housekeeping did a great job making our room look like we hadn’t completely destroyed it daily. We loved the hospitality room when you have a late flight, which allowed us to enjoy a full last day. Great job!!

    Had a chance to stay in the beautiful Napua tower. I was totally blown away on how amazing this 40 acre Hilton resort is. The rooms are huge and beautiful. The staff are amazing especially Sarah and Faye in the Napua concierge. I personally want to thank the both of you for making my stay here even more exceptional.

    The Grand

    Wonderful hotel, grounds are spectacular! Pools fantastic. Great place for families and for couples. You can park the car and never leave the facilities. Shopping is within walking distance and there is a great walking trail for exercising. All in all the perfect place to vacation.

    Fell WAY short for a Waldorf property

    The hotel was beautiful, but the service was awful. At every turn, there was an issue of some sort, from incorrect rooms (despite repeatedly confirming the reservations) to very, very long wait times for check in, pool towels/arm bands, restaurant seating, valet and check out. Also Note: Everything at the pool area (slides, food, drinks, etc.) shuts down at 5pm. So, if you are planning on doing activities during the day and relaxing at the pool at night, make sure to bring a thermos and doggie bag because you're on your own. They had too many guests and not enough staff and, of the staff, not enough were trained. Oftentimes, we were given conflicting information from different staff members - so frustrating when time is precious on such a trip. Of all the hotels we stayed in during our Hawaii trip, this was the worst, by far.
