The Coconut Grove on Kapalua Bay remains one of my favorite condominium communities on Maui.  The setting is spectacular--overlooking the white sand beach at Kapalua Bay.  Designed to bring the outside in, the Coconut Grove condominiums feature pocketing doors that open to sweeping views, as well as private interior gardens.  All villas have three bedrooms, and are amongst the largest offerings in the Kapalua resort.

kapalua bay: Maui Named Best Island in the World...Again! - 10/18/09 02:29 PM
Maui Named Best Island in the World...Again!

The Readers of Conde Naste Traveler once again named Maui the best island in the world in the 2009 Reader's Choice Awards poll.
Maui also was awarded the title of "Best Pacific Island", and several Maui resorts were among the favorites in the category of Top Hawaii Resorts, including the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua at #14. 
Readers evaluate the activities,  atmosphere/ambiance, beaches, friendliness, lodging, restaurants, and scenery that the islands have to offer when making their selections.  Maui has long been referred to as "No Ka Oi" (or the best), by visitors and kama'aina alike for its incredible beaches, gorgeous resorts, charming … (4 comments)

kapalua bay: An Update on the Maui Luxury Real Estate Market: Kapalua and Makena - 08/28/09 02:31 PM
An Update on the Maui Luxury Real Estate Market: Kapalua and Makena
When considering areas of Maui, many consider the Wailea/Makena area and Kapalua.   Both are luxury resort destinations, though both have different climates and feel.  The Wailea/Makena areas are a desert climate, and the development is high end and varied (due to many different developers).  Kapalua is a smaller community, with a more temperate climate.  With only one developer, the architectural theme of the resort has remained and the development is fairly consistent throughout.
This week, another Residence at the Ritz-Carton Residences, Kapalua Bay has been placed under reservation.  2503, which … (2 comments)

The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Kapalua Bay: A Market Update

The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay opened its doors on May 31, 2009.  The property consists of 84 wholly owned residences and 64 fractional residences.  Several owners and guests of the Club Residences have already stayed at Maui's newest Luxury Resort property. 
The first closings of the wholly owned residences are anticipated later this month.  As it's now possible to get a sense of the views and interior space, we are beginning to see an increase in activity in residence sales activity.  Today, it was announced today that two of the Residences were … (0 comments)

kapalua bay: Kapalua Club's New Beach Club at Kapalua Bay - 07/16/09 12:31 PM
Kapalua Club Members and their guests have a fantastic new gathering place here in the resort.  The new Beach Club opened two weeks ago to rave reviews, at the Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay.
The saline infinity edge pool and hot tub both overlook Kapalua Bay.  Lounge chairs fan around the pool on a soft green lawn.  My favorite way to spend the day: enjoying a light lunch, while reading poolside. 
Open from 8 am to 8 pm, this is the perfect place to catch the sunset.  The Beach Club's signature cocktails are old favorites with a tropical twist (the freshest fruit!), and the quiet, relaxed … (0 comments)

The Kapalua Spa offers a wide range of treatments and classes.  The spa is a full fitness facility, with weights, cardio, circuit training, and Kinesis training.  There are relaxation rooms with sauna, steam, and whirlpool, along with a saline lap pool.

kapalua bay: Enjoy the View: The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences - 06/17/09 03:17 PM
It was a gorgeous day today, so I thought I'd take a little time to stop by the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Kapalua Bay.  Strolling through the lobby, the view overlooks beautifully landscaped grounds, framing the channel between Molokai and Lanai.  The sound of waterfalls surround, as you make your way to a lagoon like pool setting.  This time, I had my camera handy.
I stopped by one of my favorite locations, 2503, which has stunning coastal and sunset views overlooking the pool area (pictured left).  But what's special about this location is actually the views from the back bedrooms, which look out … (0 comments)

kapalua bay: Kapalua Spa: Opening June 22, 2009! - 06/17/09 02:20 PM
The Kapalua Spa is absolutely stunning.  I had the opportunity to preview it with the Kapalua Club, and am thrilled with the newest amenity in our resort. 
Entering the building, you are greeted with a view overlooking the Coconut Grove and Kapalua Bay.  Waterfall features and fire bowls frame the view.  To the left is the juice bar and gift shop (already stocked with jewelry, skincare and spa products!) and the flex room (for those looking forward to yoga classes).  To the right are the treatment rooms.  Downstairs you'll find the fitness center (complete with a kenesis circuit system), the saline … (0 comments)

kapalua bay: It's Official: The Ritz-Carlton Club, Kapalua Bay is now Open! - 05/31/09 07:42 AM
Last night, the Ritz-Carlton Club, Kapalua Bay welcomed its first guests. 
While I'd been on several construction tours over the past few years, I took the opportunity to walk through the property last night, seeing it all for the first time.  Flowing rivers line the walkway to the lobby, and the sound of waterfalls greet you.  As I entered, I was struck by the view that captures the best of Kapalua: a tropical landscape, leading to Kapalua Bay, framed by the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai.
As I walked through the meandering pool area, I passed over bridges, waterfalls and grottos.  The first guests were … (0 comments)

kapalua bay: The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences - 04/20/09 10:02 AM
The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay are on schedule to open May 31, 2009. 
I had the opportunity to tour the Kapalua Resort's newest luxury condominium residences with clients just this last week.  It's exciting to see the progress of the Residences, as the grounds begin to take shape and the final finishes are being put on each residence. 
For those that had trouble visualising the layout, it's now possible to get a true sense of the floorplans.  Each gracious three and four bedroom residence is oriented to capture the view.  Spacious great rooms and lanais promise to be the highlight of the residences, whether … (0 comments)

kapalua bay: Kapalua Wine and Food Festival - 04/06/09 11:06 AM
The KapaluaWine & Food Festival has announced a "Buy Now and Save"promotion for family, friends, and the general public.  The 28th Annual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival celebrates "Carnival" with a four day extravaganza of some of the world's best food and wine. 
This is one of my favorite events of the year, and I always try to get to the Grand Tasting and the Seafood Festival.  Last year, both events were held at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, which has just undergone a $180+ million dollar renovation.  This year, you'll also be able to see the new Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay, … (0 comments)

kapalua bay: Merriman's to Host Winemaker's Dinner on February 5, 2009 - 02/02/09 11:40 AM
On Thursday, February 5th, Ancien Wines Owner and Winemaker Ken Bernards will pair four of his signature wines with Chef Philip Wong's four-course Hawai'i Regional menu to create a memorable dinner.
Since moving to Kapalua in January, Merriman's has become one of my favorite evening spots.  It's just a short walk from our home to this spectacular setting.  While the more formal dinner inside is outstanding, I really enjoy dining al fresco at the point.  Here they've set up tables and chairs to take in the sunset, and the fare is lighter (pupus and cocktails).  After dinner, I gravitae to the chairs around the fire pit, the perfect … (0 comments)
