The Grand Wailea on the island of Maui is a treasure to visit. Here are some of the pictures we made on the grounds.
This is a path that goes for several miles along the beach. It connects the resorts and shopping areas as well as some fine restaurants.
Below is the beautiful, open-air dining room where we had breakfast each morning.
This light was massive! And, so beautiful when lit!
The courtyard between the room towers was so lush and green. Several thatched huts were available for quiet times. There were streams running through it, making lovely sounds as they ran over the rocks. Striking sculptures were all along the path. It is all lit with tiki torches at night. (Here, too, are the ‘bird bushes!)
This chapel is on the grounds and is used for many ‘destination weddings.’ There is stained glass depicting moments from Hawaii’s history on all 4 sides. The inside walls, floor and pews are all made of native koa wood! It will take your breath away!
Property Description (from their website)
The Grand Wailea is truly a “Grand Hotel” fronting beautiful Wailea Beach.
The Five Diamond Grand Wailea Resort is centered around six major design cornerstones: flowers, water, trees, sound, light and art. Enjoy extensive waterslides and a top notch beach.
The Grand Wailea is the last of the famous “Destination Hotels” built in Hawaii. There was no expense spared in building this hotel.
