U.S. News Review

If you're an avid golfer eager to take on some PGA Championship fairways on Maui's western tip, consider a stay at The Kapalua Villas. Take your pick between a one-, two- or three-bedroom villa and enjoy ocean or golf course views, along with a fully equipped kitchen, a balcony and a washer and dryer. If you are here to test the fairways, you can save by booking a golf package, or you can enjoy a reduced rate on a round of golf thanks to the daily resort fee ($25, plus an additional checkout cleaning fee). Not one to spoil a good walk? Lounge along Kapalua Bay Beach or cool off in one of the semi-private villa pools. And for extra pampering, visit the 45,000-square-foot Kapalua Spa. Whether you were out on the fairway or relaxing at the spa, cap off a day at Kapalua at one of the property's four restaurants, or head next door to sample any one of the Ritz-Carlton’s six eateries.

Critic Reviews


“Of the three complexes (Golf, Ridge, and Bay Villas), the Bay units are the nicest, positioned on the windswept bluff overlooking the Pacific with Molokai on the horizon. In the winter you can whale-watch without leaving your living room.”
Award: Frommer's Exceptional

Lonely Planet

“These swank condos — let’s call them fortresses of luxury — are clustered into three separate compounds. ”
Award: Lonely Planet Recommended


“Set among the 22,000 sprawling acres of the Kapalua Resort, these posh condominiums are named for their locations: the Golf Villas line the fairways of Kapalua's championship Bay Golf Course; the Ridge Villas are perched along a cliff overlooking the ocean; and the Bay Villas are at the water's edge.”

Guest Rooms
