ABOUT THE KAPALUA RESORT:
Situated along Maui’s scenic northwest coast, the Kapalua Resort extends from the pacific ocean to the top of Mauna Kahalawai, the West Maui Mountains, and the Pu’u Kukui Watershed Preserve. Kapalua translates from the Hawaiian to “arms embracing the sea”, with the resort’s name referring to the six bays nestled in its embrace: Honolua, Mokulei’a, Honokahua, Oneloa, Namalu, and Kapalua.
Prior to becoming the resort it is today, this area was originally known for ranching and farming. Operating as Honolua Ranch and eventually transitioning to Honolua Plantation, which focused on pineapple cultivation. The Kapalua logo is a butterfly with a pineapple at its heart, symbolizing the metamorphosis of this beautiful master-planned resort from the pineapple fields that were originally cultivated on its slopes.
The natural beauty of Kapalua is unparalleled, and visitors and residents alike are afforded endless opportunities to explore, with hiking trails extending from the coastline to the mountain’s conservation areas. Kapalua is home to three pristine white sand beaches, as well as the marine conservation sanctuaries of Honolua Bay and Mokulei’a Bay, delighting surfers, snorkelers and sunbathers alike. For golfers, there are two championship golf courses, the Bay Course and the Plantation Course. Foodies love the award winning restaurants and the annual Kapalua Wine and Food Festival.
The Kapalua Resort also offers two world class hotels, the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua and the Montage Kapalua Bay, both which have a residential component, as well as luxury accommodations at privately owned villas and homes.
There are a variety of real estate options in Kapalua, ranging from condominiums to residences. Locations extend from beach and oceanfront, to the golf course, to mountainside perches. Each neighborhood has its own unique feeling and sensibility.
Owners in the Kapalua Resort may apply to join the Kapalua Club, which is a wonderful way to get to know others in the community, as well as providing special resort privileges and events.
