Our Take: Located less than a mile inland from D.T. Fleming Beach on Maui's northwest coast, the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua — with its epic views of Molokai Island — is popular with travelers trying to escape bustling Lahaina. The rooms are spacious with an airy-yet-refined atmosphere brought on by yellow and green decor and wrought-iron lanais (Hawaiian patios). Accommodations at this Ritz-Carlton also feature plasma-screen TVs, marble bathrooms, iPod docking stations and high-speed Internet access. Plus, the Hawaiian-inspired touches like palm tree curtains and throw pillows with pineapple designs are popular with recent travelers. Past visitors are also bowled over by the quality of this resort's customer service: Guests say that the staff here worked hard to ensure a comfortable stay. While you're here, travelers recommend taking advantage of the poolside cabanas or, if you're looking to unwind even further, splurge on a treatment at the spa. Others enjoyed the hiking excursions and other outdoor ventures with the Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment program. And at the end of the day, refuel with a full plate of fresh Hawaiian cuisine at The Terrace Chef-Crafted.
