Ritz Carlton Maui

Ritz Carlton Resort Hotel, Kapalua, Maui

The Ritz Carlton in Kapalua is a Ritz, so of course, it is ritzy.  It was extensively remodeled in 2007.  The hotel has large beautiful grounds and lobby, scenic views, and excellent service.  The 356 hotel rooms and 107 residential (being sold like condos) rooms are more generously sized (440 square feet) than in most hotels and the decor is elegant.  Its located in Kapalua, which some people prefer because it is a few miles away from the crowds of Kaanapali and Lahaina.  Phone 808-669-6200.

About The Ritz Carlton Maui

However, there are two problems with the Ritz Carlton Kapalua.  (1) There is more chance of clouds, wind, or rain in Kapalua than in Maui’s other luxury resort areas (Kaanapali and Wailea).  (2) The beach at the Maui Ritz is a ten-minute walk downhill from the hotel (and an uphill walk on the way back).  They do have a shuttle available to and from the beach, but personally, I prefer a hotel with the beach right out front.  There’s not as much for kids to do in the Kapalua area as in Kaanapali or close to Lahaina.

Restaurants at the Ritz are the Banyan Tree (fabulous food), Terrace (Pacific cuisine and buffet breakfast), Kai (sushi), and the casual little Beach House Grill down by the beach.  There’s also a Lobby Lounge with drinks and light food, plus a singer most evenings.

If you want quiet, elegant luxury, and don’t mind the imperfect weather or the walk to the beach, the Ritz will pamper you.  For reviews and photos of other hotels on this side of Maui see West Maui hotels.
