For the rate we paid at the Four Seasons Maui at Wailea, I was afraid we’d feel like we overpaid “just” for a hotel. Well I was wrong! The arrival experience and the room were both welcoming and amazing. The food was delicious! And we soon found out that the service and on-site amenities were just as excellent as well.
First and foremost, the focus of any great beach resort is their pool. Four Seasons Maui has three – the Waterfall Pool, the Fountain Pool, and the Serenity Pool. We spent a whole day at the adults-only Serenity Pool. I reserved us a Missoni Cabana; one of their newest ones created by Italian designer Rosita Missoni.
As we walked into the cabana area, we could tell right away which cabanas were the Missoni ones. The palette of colors just popped right off the canvas of surrounding earth tone cabanas. The attendant showed us to our cabana and explained all the amenities that we had access to – 2 bottles of Veuve Clicquot champagne, Nespresso, fresh fruit, ice cold towels, and a large flat screen TV with wireless headphones.
It was perfect. Joann could tan on her beach chair in the sun and I could mostly stay in the cabana – under the ceiling fan while watching some NBA. This was what relaxing on a honeymoon is all about.
