Maui’s Ritz-Carlton Kapalua

Maui Ritz1

B and I went to Maui to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We ping ponged all over the island from Wailea to Kapalua. One of the places we stayed was here at the Ritz-Carlton Maui Kapalua. Wow. It was lovely, expansive, and quite luxurious.

It has these three pools at different levels, offering slightly varied views.

And in between, it has these waterfalls that connect them.

Kapalua is on the Northwestern part of Maui, found here. It's known for beautiful beaches, strong winds, and surfing. Because it can be pretty windy that means the hotel needs to come up with some crafty ways of keeping the umbrellas stable. Check out these rather solid umbrellas. They're not blowing away any time soon.

If you're a pool person, The Ritz has them. I am and these were some of the most beautiful I've been to.

And if you have kids, it's great for them, too.

The property is rather large, so much so that if you're not up for walking, you can get carted around.

There's plenty to do when you're not enjoying the pool. Tennis is available and the backdrop of the ocean isn't too shabby.

But most people going to Maui, go for the beaches. And The Ritz delivers that, too. Look at this setting.

And if you're hungry, there's no sweeter spot than sitting on the water, watching the waves, while enjoying some delicious food, here at The Beach House.

You'll want to be careful here if you go in the water. The undercurrent can be strong, depending on the day. The security staff is great about listing the conditions, but nonetheless, it's best to be very mindful of the undercurrent.

I'm all about how things are displayed. I loved their choice of towels and how they were perfectly stacked.

And if you wanted to hang out on the beach, but not get sandy, you can do so in one of these comfortable chaise lounges.

I love when a place puts an emphasis on elegance over practicality. Love these chairs. But I bet they'd argue with me that they're both elegant and practical. Either way, they look good.

I'm always taking pictures of the little things, like chandeliers. The pineapple is a symbolic of hospitality. I'm all about the details.

If you want a dose of the gym, The Ritz has a terrific one. Not your average hotel gym. This room was complete with more equipment than almost any other hotel I've been in. Nice.

No surprise, our room was lovely too. Subtle, elegant, and tasteful.

And what a bar. This picture doesn't do it justice but that dramatic red swirl illuminates and is really captivating.

Speaking of captivating, we had the obligatory fruity drink, complete with orchid petals.

We loved it here. B loved the quiet nature of the area, how expansive The Ritz was, and how you really felt like you were away. We'd definitely would go back there.
