Experience a Hawaii reminiscent of days past when you stay at this century-old former pineapple plantation on Maui. Tucked into the verdant green foliage of rolling hills and two championship golf courses, the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua showcases 463 extensively remodeled guest rooms and suites, a new 17,500 square foot spa featuring private outdoor shower gardens and relaxation areas resembling volcanic stone grottos, in addition to a new fitness and yoga/movement studio with views of the Pacific Ocean to relax your body and spirit. Escape to this unique paradise, where world-class service meets traditional Hawaiian culture.

Family Activities We Love

  • A Feast Fit for Mo'i
    Mo'i is Hawaiian for royalty and that's just who you'll feel like when you sit down to the Feast at Lele at the Ritz-Carlton. It features a dinner of five epicurean courses from the Pacific island nations of Aotearoa, Tahiti, and Samoa, as well as Hawaii. Take a royal tour of the cuisine of Polynesia and enjoy the show from your own table on the beach with music and dance from these four Pacific islands.
  • Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah
    Zip along the West Maui Mountains on nearly two miles of ziplines that run parallel to each other. Kapalua Adventures offers tours that include the zipline course and a turn on a giant swing that seats two and pulls you to a height of 40 feet before you are released over the gulch. You'll gain breathtaking views of Molokai and Lanai if you have the stomach for it!
  • A Whale of a Time
    If you happen to be in Maui between December and May, you're in luck! Chances are you'll catch a glimpse of a pod of humpback whales that have come to Hawaii's warm waters for the winter. Most boats provide a marine naturalist on board to explain the whale antics you’ll see. By law the boats must stop 100 yards from the whales, but that won't stop the whales from coming up to you! Reserve ahead of time- these tours fill up fast!
  • Walk Like a Polynesian
    The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua offers the one-of-a-kind Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment program for guests. Hike the Hawaiian rainforest, have an underwater photography session while exploring coral reefs, tour the coast in a kayak, or walk on water like the Polynesians on a stand up paddle board. All excursions are led by expert naturalists.
  • Pedal to the Metal
    Cruise on ATVs from a private ranch through acres of uninhabited Eucalyptus forests that open up to meadows with breathtaking views of the Valley Isle. Tours are complete with guides and paced to ensure excitement.

Romantic Activities We Love

  • Hana & Haleakala
Take a first-class helicopter ride to explore the Hana rainforest on the tropical east side of the island. Then travel through Maui's most remote areas to view the Seven Sacred Pools, waterfalls and beautiful rugged coastline. Ascend the world's largest dormant volcano, Haleakala, which means "house of the sun" before coming back to earth.
  • Sail Away with Me, Honey
    Discover Lana'i by sailing on a catamaran into Hulopo’e Beach and Marine Preserve. Take a guided snorkel-reef tour with a trained naturalist, followed by a narrated tour of the island's plantation town. Catch the sun setting on the ocean as you end with a trade wind sail back to Maui just in time for cocktails.
  • Embrace Kapalua Style
    Pineapple papaya body polish for two? Yes, please! And don't forget the duo Lomilomi massage in the Ritz-Carlton spa sanctuary. You have the choice of experiencing a side-by-side massage in an indoor couples suite or an outdoor private garden hale room. Release all your cares and soak in a tropical bath for two before exploring other offerings like the eucalyptus-infused steam rooms and volcanic stone grotto private relaxation areas.
  • Ulalena, Ooh la la
    Maui is the only place where you can see the spellbinding Ulalena show. Part Cirque du Soleil and part traditional theatre, Ulalena gives a modern dance theatre interpretation of the story of Hawaii's people. A VIP pass will get you seats in the first seven center rows and an extra 20-minute behind-the-scenes session with the cast. Dine at one of the many wonderful restaurants like Gerard's, I'o, or Kimo's in Lahaina after the show.
  • Jet Ski Built for Two
    Get a whale's view of the island between May and December, when you can rent jet skis and skate across the surface of the gleaming Pacific. Or get your thrills together when you ride two-on-one waverunner to explore the beautiful Kaanapali - Lahaina Coast.
