Overview

Plenty of kids amenities on-site
No pets allowed

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 in more ways than one. The rooms are spacious and are dressed in a tropical-yet-refined style brought on by yellow and green decor and wrought-iron lanais (Hawaiian patios). Accommodations at this Ritz-Carlton also feature flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms, iPod docking stations and high-speed internet access. 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 pool, 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 Ambassadors of the Environment program. And at the end of the day, refuel with a full plate of fresh Hawaiian cuisine at The Banyan Tree, one of the resort's six restaurants.
