This stylish boutique hotel is one of a kind in Wailea: Not only is it Hawaii's only Relais & Châteaux property, it’s an adults-only, hillside haven, with just 72 suites on 15 acres. Compared with the flashier resorts at the coastline, it’s small, secluded, and serene—an oasis for honeymooners. The pool and cabanas with sprawling daybeds are swank, with free cocktails by the firepit from 5 to 6pm and mixology classes every Sunday morning. The verdant grounds and koi ponds have been transformed into a meditative garden. Large suites are outfitted with modern luxuries: wide-planked wood floors, Hawaiian kapa-inspired prints on plush king-size platform beds, deep soaking tubs, and daybeds on the lanai. Tidy kitchenettes feature Nespresso machines, two-burner Wolf stoves, and Sub-Zero refrigerators. Hotel staff will load up a free tote bag with towels and water and chauffeur you throughout Wailea in Tesla Model X cars. It’s a 3-minute shuttle to the beach, and the hotel’s kiosk at Wailea Beach can supply you with umbrellas and chairs. Take advantage of the free outrigger canoe trip offered on Wednesdays. This isn’t a place that nickel-and-dimes guests, and employees come to know you on a first-name basis. Definitely plan to indulge at the hotel’s restaurant; the name, concept, and management have changed several times in recent years but the food and the views are always top-notch. Brides- and grooms-to-be, take note: The lawn and gazebo at the hotel’s entrance is a fairy-tale venue for weddings and receptions, and the private-dining, oceanview hale in the resort’s orchard is ultra-romantic.
