Our Take: Located less than a mile inland from D.T. Fleming Beach, the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua—with its epic vistas of Molokai Island—is popular with travelers trying to escape bustling Lahaina. The rooms are spacious, with an airy-yet-refined atmosphere and wrought-iron lanais (Hawaiian patios) offering gorgeous views of the coast. Plus, the Hawaiian-inspired touches like palm tree curtains and throw pillows with pineapple designs are popular with recent travelers. Others enjoyed the hiking excursions and other outdoor ventures with the Ritz's Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment program.
