We had 6 nights in this resort and it was nothing short from AMAZING! With 3 infinity pools, bar, restaurants, amazing beach with beautiful coral reef and a great room, we could simply spend all of the time in the resort. If you still want to go out, the Wailea shopping centre is just a 10 min walk where you can shop or find more restaurants options. Service is top, room clean is top, and everything in this place just feels like a postcard moment. We really liked it.
Great snorkeling right off hotel beach, much better sea life , visibility and quietness compare to Black Rock, comparable to some of the best snorkeling beach on Oahu and BigIsland, hotel facility is top notch, loved sipping cocktail, and eating lunch on the beach after snorkeling for hours and seeing turtle, ray, octopus and more
