In the Maui Development Plan going as far back as the initial outline that was submitted during the construction of Kaanapali in 1961. The project was put on the back burner for many years and it was not until the early 1990’s that the development really kicked into high gear. Once the Wailea hotels stated to be built, the development did not stop and the region has now become one of the premier places to stay on the island of Maui.
If you are planning on staying in Wailea it is recommended that you plan your day around a morning at the beach and the afternoon at the resort pool. Wailea is prone to afternoon winds that can make the beach an uncomfortable experience. Luckily, the pool decks of the top Wailea resorts are protected from the winds and the service is first class.
