The Grand Wailea Walfdorf Astoria hotel spans 40 acres of waterfront property with direct access to Maui's golden Wailea Beach. The grounds are connected by meandering walkways that wind alongside streams, miniature waterfalls and swaying palm trees - perfect for a leisurely Hawaiian-style stroll. Eat at award-winning restaurants, take a dip in one of the four pools, or treat yourself at the Spa Grande, where services range from water therapies to traditional massages. Winner of the AAA Four Diamond Award, the Grand Wailea is a real Maui retreat.

Maui Magic

This was our 3rd trip in 2 yrs. to the Grand Wailea. It is always a pure pleasure to stay at this hotel. We have visited Maui often during the past 26 yrs. and the Grand Wailea is THE BEST!! Restaurants on premises are excellent, all staff are welcoming and very pleasant. [...] at the front desk is especially nice and is always "all smiles." Whenever we left, the baggage handler reminded us of any personal items and looked in every drawer and under the bed himself. He waited patiently while my husband brought the car and warmly wished us a return visit. The beach services, pool services and all staff are top quality. The children's entertainment, slides, poolside crafts etc seemed to provide amply for little ones.Room maid services are simply excellent. The only improvement would be to really scrub the grout in the showers and launder the "throw" rug in the bathroom. Otherwise, it was spotless. We love the flowers, the chapel and total ambience of this hotel. The views are simply beautiful. Highy recommend. Love the Wailea shops nearby.

Honeymoon at the Grand Wailea, Maui

Room was great, view was beautiful, breakfast was yummy. Drinks at the bars were too high priced for us! We ate at Humuhumu and it was fabulous!

Awesome stay

We came here for the last stop after staying in Lahaina and Kapalua the previous 5 nights. It was an amazon stay and couldn't be a more beautiful resort. Definitely recommend.

Had a great time!

I stayed at the Grand Wailea for my 1 year anniversary with my girlfriend and as soon as we walked into the lobby, the only word that came out of her mouth was "epic". It truly is an island paradise resort. The property has all the amenities you need. You can stay in the property and still have a wonderful vacation although it would probably be very expensive. I do recommend going into to town to eat if you want more affordable meals. The location is great, it shares a wonderful beach with several other high end hotels. Rooms were clean and comfortable. I had an amazing private patio where I found myself relaxing often. The bathrooms are amazing and roomy. The tub fits two nicely :) The staff were all friendly and courteous as well.

First Trip to GW

My seven year old loved the pool and the slide (also the fishpipe, to a lesser degree). We got lucky and got upgraded to one of the towers, and the room was spacious with a good view and a luxurious bathroom. Rooms were cleaned twice everyday, which is great given that we brought in lots of sands after a day at the beach. Grand lu'au was a memorable experience, and the Spiny Hawaiian Lobster at the Humu was the best! Staffs were generally very friendly, except few that had some attitude (my sense is that they are so accustomed to a certain types of guests; if you do not fit that mold, you'd better show them you belong there to earn their respect). Guests all greet each other with smiles. Everything is expensive, but that is what you would expect from this hotel. Bottom line is that this is a great hotel for families with kids.
