Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea
A favored hideout for Hollywood types in search of a Polynesian interlude, the 380-room resort caters to every pleasurable whim. Stroll in a traditional Hawaiian healing garden to the recently expanded spa, where you can soothe sunned skin with an avocado mask in a treatment room for two. The resort also customizes spa packages—think coconut, pineapple, and kukui nut–based therapies—for its guests.The suites are decorated with tropical accents, facing the Pacific or the dramatic Haleakala volcano. Dine in one of three restaurants or grab a fruity drink in the hotel's four bars before touring the resort's contemporary Hawaiian art collection. Those who are looking for a little more activity can snorkel, scuba, or take yoga classes for free, in a place where most resorts charge extra. To make the experience all the more luxurious, book one of the Standard rooms-at 600 square feet, they're the largest in the state.
