Montage Resort In Kapalua Maui
Montage Kapalua Bay is home to a collection of luxury residences, constructed in 2009 on the previous site of the Kapalua Bay Hotel. The upscale resort sits on a sprawling 24-acre property adjacent to the world-famous Kapalua Bay. Located about 25 minutes north of Lahaina, Montage Kapalua Bay serves as a deluxe getaway on Maui’s northwest coast.
The accommodations at Montage Kapalua Bay are expansive, ideal for traveling groups or families. The units vary from 1,900 to 4,200 square feet and range from one to four bedrooms. The inclusion of a full kitchen is a massive perk, as kitchens are not something typically found in luxury resorts. Oceanview units are available, but the accommodations themselves are set a ways back from the ocean to help preserve the area’s natural beauty.
Montage Kapalua Bay is outfitted with numerous amenities like restaurants, markets, a spa, a kids club, an on-site luau, cultural classes, and a sprawling pool. The main fine-dining restaurant in the hotel is Cane & Canoe (read my Cane & Canoe Review). Every morning from 7 am to 11 am, Cane and Canoe serve as a casual breakfast restaurant, serving morning classics and healthy tropical items like fruit bowls and smoothies. Come evening, the restaurant transforms into a classy culinary affair, serving perfected seafood, fresh fish, and steak, complemented by fresh local produce.
Montage Hotels and Resorts worldwide are renowned for their spas, and this location is no different. The enormous Spa Montage Kapalua Bay provides various services for both guests and visitors. Outdoor treatment rooms, fitness centers, hydrotherapy oasis, infinity pools, and other amenities are intuitively placed within its five-acre facility. In addition, Spa Montage Kapalua Bay integrates the island’s natural beauty and locally sourced ingredients into its many treatments.
The historic plantation era Cliff House is now under Montage management as well. This truly oceanfront venue has hosted countless weddings, cocktail parties, corporate events, and resort-hosted food and beverage events. It’s also a spectacular venue to rent just to spend a day in.
Montage Kapalua Bay also hosts an on-site luau. Deviating from typical resort luaus, The Beach Club Luau only hosts up to 40 guests for an intimate show. In addition, the buffet dinner is replaced with family-style courses that stick to Hawaiian cuisine. The menu was cultivated by executive chef Eric Faivre, making The Beach Club Luau an excellent culinary affair.
The northwestern part of Maui, where Kapalua is located, gets more wind, clouds, and rain than the main tourist areas of Kaanapali, Lahaina, Wailea, and Kihei. However, Montage Kapalua Bay has the advantage of being in a more quiet and less crowded part of the island, away from the top visitor destinations.
