Like many a great beauty, Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Resort has had a bit of a nip and tuck to stay gorgeous. The iconic resort recently announced the completion of a property-wide refresh—the most extensive in its 30-year history—that will also include a completely redone wellness and spa experience that will debut in 2023. The recently redone spaces included the Botero Lounge, the exclusive Napua rooms, suites and private lounge, and two popular dining venues into a brunch restaurant, ‘Ikena, and grab-and-gourmet market, Loulu.

Grand Wailea Offers Guests An Updated Experience

And there’s more for your Hawaii-bound clients to enjoy: Grand Wailea has also added experiential on-property programming throughout 2022, featuring continued partnerships with wine brands Kosta Browne and La Fête du Rosé, an art installation by world-renowned multimedia artist Michael Pendry and more.

“We are thrilled to update the classic charm of Grand Wailea, while enhancing the luxury and heritage for which it is known, and to commemorate this new chapter with so many exciting activations and partnerships,” said JP Oliver, managing director, in a press statement. “We look forward to finalizing all redesigned spaces and ultimately offering guests an enriched product with authentic Hawaiian experiences in our idyllic Maui setting.”  

The Botero Lounge’s extensive private collection of Botero sculptures restored pieces to their original form, and your clients will enjoy new menus and specialty cocktails. It will also host the resort’s new “The Art of…” series that includes guest-centric workshops such as “The Art of Sushi-Making,” “The Art of Whiskey,” and “The Art of Cocktail Mixing”—all taught by experts in their respective fields.

The Napua tower, an exclusive enclave of hotel rooms and suites set in a dedicated “tower” in the heart of the resort ready to cater to your most demanding clients, debuted in June following a complete renovation. The space also includes private concierge service and the exclusive Napua Lounge with food, beverages, and fun daily activations, including chefs’ stations, beverage tastings, live entertainment, spa and holistic wellness sessions and more.
