Condé Nast Traveler: Readers’ Choice Awards Maui #1 spot for Top Island and Top Hawaiian Resort
Maui was recently named by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine readers as the #1 Pacific island to visit. It is often rated the best island in the world for many reasons – most beautiful island, best beaches for snorkeling, best for diving, surfing and whale-watching. Not to mention, it is the best island for a honeymoon.
The Maui Mana Kai is on the south end of the island and is the perfect spot to take in everything Maui has to offer. It is right on the beach with ocean views and just minutes from just about anything you may want to do. The Four Seasons Maui, which was named the #1 Hawaiian resort by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine – Readers Choice Awards is located just 5 minutes from the Mana Kai. Their spa, golf course and dining facilities are open to anyone.
The spa offers traditional Hawaiian, master Thai, craniosacral and ayurvedic massage therapists to relax you and offer a body-pampering experience. You can even indulg in an oceanside massage! They are open every day from 6:00am – 9:00pm.
The dining facilities are spectacular. Ferraro’s Bar e Ristorante is the perfect place on Maui to enjoy an outdoor lunch. The beachfront setting and open-air design takes full advantage of the warm, sunny weather. The lunch menu is casual fare, but in the evening authentic Italian dishes and seafood are offered.
Also located at the Four Seasons is Wolf Gang Puck’s world famous Spago. The menu offers the chef’s classics, plus many locally inspired dishes. A special children’s menu is offered as well. This is a Mobile Four Star and AAA Four Diamond Restaurant.
If two restaurants aren’t enough, DUO is a new addition to the Four Seasons and offers a steak and seafood intimate dining experience.
Also just minutes away is the Wailea Gold Course, which is a masterful blend of brawn and beauty. This par-72 course has hosted the LPGA Skins Game and is known as a “thinking player’s” course. It is a course for players seeking a real challenge. It was designed by golf course architect Robert Trent Jones II and features an outstanding layout that measures more than 7,000 yards of naturally undulating terrain showcasing Wailea’s stunning scenery.
All of the above facilities are available to the public as well as the guests of the Four Seasons. However, by staying at the Mana Kai you will pay a fraction of the cost of a Four Star resort and still be able to enjoy many of the amenities located just minutes away. You are also getting the same quality accommodations and great ocean views of all the famous resorts. If you love the four star quality of the Four Seasons but can’t afford the price tag, consider staying with us where you get to enjoy every amenity but without the paying extra change!
