Maui was fantastic!

Would recommend Wed, Nov 4, 2015
My boyfriend and I took this trip with the intention for total recreation & relaxation--which is exactly what we experienced! The Ritz exceeded our expectations regarding activities, food (although a bit pricey), viewing the natural beauty of the aream and other accommodations! The hotel staff was incredibly friendly the overall atmosphere of the resort was calm, quiet, and relaxing--with the Pacific Ocean literally steps away from the hotel, as well as a nature walk path nearby. If planning to go to Maui, this is definitely the place to stay when compared to other resorts on the island. Two months later, we still talk about this vacation. We truly had the most enjoyable time ever.

The Ritz more than met our expectations. We were greeted by every member of the staff and they made sure our stay was excellent. They were part of the relaxed atmosphere and great vacation we had. The 24-hour pool was also great as we were able to take a swim under the stars.

Amazing Stay!

Would recommend Fri, Oct 2, 2015
We were really lucky to get this Resort to stay! It was beautiful and everything exceeded our expectations. Con: Location is off so you better have a car to do anything on the island unless you plan to stay on site.

pancakes

Would recommend Thu, Sep 3, 2015
My son and I had breakfast at the Terrace. I was looking forward to eating pancakes, but was disappointed that there were none to be seen. I asked the omelet chef about it, but another cook overheard me. She made pancakes for me. I was especially happy the next morning when she saw me and asked me if I wanted pancakes again. It's the little things like that that impress me!

Great relaxing stay

Would recommend Wed, Aug 19, 2015
The Ritz in Kapalua is a beautiful resort with lots of amenities. The staff is wonderful and our stay was fantastic. The location of the resort is secluded, but there is a market onsite and Kanapali is just a short 6min drive away. I will definitely stay here again if we return to Maui.

Dream Vacation

Would recommend Fri, Aug 14, 2015
This was our first time to Hawaii and we are extremely happy that we chose to stay at the Ritz!!! From the moment we arrived we were catered to and welcomed by all staff which continued throughout our stay. The hotel was always clean and very well kept despite the number of guests coming and going. The views were breathtaking and everything about the hotel was luxurious. We ate at the Bayan Tree restaurant here and had the pineapple cups which were amazing! We had breakfast downstairs which was also very good and we ate on the patio/terrace at a table with a fire pit in the center. We also went zip lining, snorkeling, and to 4 different golf courses. We enjoyed a lot of local food in the area that is definitely worth exploring. The local beaches are amazing and we climbed on the rocks for an even better view and some splashing. There's just not enough wonderful things I can say about everything and everyone here! Come to Hawaii!!! Stay at the Ritz! Explore as much as you can!!!
