From the moment they approach through a tree-shaded drive and pass a large waterfall, guests at the Grand Wailea recognize this 40-acre resort is something grand—in scale and in luxury. The resort features five themes: water (pools, hot tubs, a reflecting pool, waterfalls, koi ponds); flowers and trees (the world's largest resort landscaping project); sound (splashing water, music); light (the sun, tiki torches); and art (a collection that includes works by Picasso, Legar, Bolero, and Warhol). Families, honeymooners, and vacationing couples gravitate to the pools, but sunning lawns and the beach remain uncrowded.
The resort has 780 guestrooms, including 60 suites. The Napua Tower is a 100-room exclusive small hotel within the resort. Grand Wailea Resort’s guest accommodations are well designed and spacious, ranging from 640 square feet to 5,500 square feet.
The Wailea Canyon Activity Pool is a 2,000-foot "river" that includes nine separate pools (including a sand-bottom toddlers' pool), seven waterslides, waterfalls, caves, white-water rapids, grottos, spa, sauna, and the world's first water elevator. More formal, the tranquil adults-only Hibiscus Pool overlooking the beach features a gold mosaic bottom, poolside massage, and spas.
