Expert Review

A grand place indeed, the sprawling Wailea Resort is famous for its over-the-top opulence: huge bronze statues and frescoed domes in the lobby, a $100-milllion art collection (including works by Picasso, Warhol, and Botero), megatons of marble, geological rock formations imported from Mount Fuji, and nine freeform pools - complete with waterfalls, rope swings, and white-water rapids. Among the resort's 40 oceanfront acres, the Spa Grande and fitness center (the largest in Hawaii with 50,000 square feet and 40 treatment rooms) has an underwater elevator and ocean views from practically every window. The Grand Wailea is also chock-full of family activities, including the Camp Grande, a full-fledged kiddie resort with its own restaurant, craft room, theater, game room, and outdoor play area. Rooms here follow posh suit: massive suites overlook Haleakala and the islands of Molokai and Lanai. All 780 guestrooms range from 640-5500 sq. ft. The Napua Tower is a private club-area in the center of the hotel and offers 100 rooms with dedicated concierge services and upgraded accommodations. All units have a private lanai, marble bathrooms with an oversized tub and a separate glass-enclosed shower, a sitting area, and writing desk.
