The Grand Wailea, located along the beautiful beaches of Maui, hosts nearly 26,000 square feet of aquatic area. There are nine interconnected pools throughout the resort, including whitewater rapids and a lazy current, to take you from pool to pool. This playful resort features four waterslides, a rope swing, waterfalls and the world’s first water elevator, built into a volcano. Grab your swimsuit and get ready for a day full of poolside fun at the Grand Wailea.
The St. Regis Princeville is the perfect romantic poolside vacation. The 5,000-square-foot infinity pool overlooks the peaceful Hanalei Bay.
