From the dramatic entry to its freestanding spa, Montage is a full-service resort that invites families to feel luxuriously at home. Enormous residences range from 1,250 to 4,050 square feet—each with gourmet kitchens, deep soaking tubs, walk-in closets, washer/dryers, and expansive lanais. Rooms overlook gardens, pools, and the island of Molokai on the horizon. An elevator delivers you to your private floor, where you can store the gear you will almost certainly use at nearby Kapalua and Oneloa beaches. The open-air restaurant, Cane and Canoe, is great day or night, and the Kapalua Beach Club is a chic hangout spot with its own pool, hot tub, and comparatively cheap drinks. Kids will love the outdoor movies and games of capture the flag. Adults will adore the royal treatment in the cabanas, the convenience of everything being close at hand, and the museum-quality artwork exhibited throughout the property. Guests have free use of Spa Montage—a wellness wonderland with outdoor rain showers, cedar saunas, waterfall hot tubs, an oceanview yoga studio, and (best of all) a coed serenity pool where couples can lounge sipping organic juices before or after their spa treatments. Wedding parties should book the dreamy Cliff House, a private event venue hanging over the jeweled bay.
