When it's time to get away and mean it, the Ritz-Carlton company has provided the perfect combination of location and amenities with its Destination Club on Maui at Kapalua Bay.

Ritz-Carlton Club Kapalua Bay Pool

This destination has all of the features that make Hawaii internationally-known as one of the premier vacation locations in the world. White sand beaches, mountain and ocean views, and lush, vibrant forests and gardens await you.

However, the Ritz-Carlton has taken the natural amenities of Maui and coupled them with world-class service, elegance – and even the potential for a little adventure.

Dedicated Concierge

Your experience begins with your dedicated concierge, who will make every arrangement from traveling details to spa appointments for you. Arrive to find your vacation residence ready for you; the fully-equipped kitchen stocked, and your personal items already in place. From the moment you step from your flight, your only task is to decide how to enjoy yourself day after day.

One day may see you enjoying PGA-Tour-level golf at The Plantation course; another might take you to The Bay, the other reason that Kapalua Bay is considered the "#1 Golf Resort in Hawaii."

Or perhaps you'll gravitate toward the Beach Club – a 6,100 square-foot private club with it's own swimming pool and Member's only bar. Enjoy a refreshing drink while taking in the view of Kapalua Bay and the islands of Molokai and Lanai.

Members can treat themselves to a workout, different kinds of massages, and more at the Kapalua Spa, an approximately 30,000 foot destination spa featuring ancient and modern therapies, a salon, a saline lap pool, and other luxurious amenities.

Enjoy a small get-together with your neighbors at the Recreation Area, a multi-level gathering place featuring a pool with cascading waterfalls, a full-service pool grill and bar. If you'd like to host a private gathering, your Membership entitles you to a personal chef to help you create a truly memorable gathering for your guests.

If you enjoy local events, plan your stay to coincide with the Celebration of the Arts, the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival, or Whale Quest Kapalua.

If these possibilities aren't quite enough and you'd like to add some adventure to your vacation, the Ritz-Carlton is ready for you with the Kapalua Adventure Center. The Adventure Center the Mountain Outpost, a facility designed with education and adventure in mind. Speed along the longest ziplines in North America, scale a 35-foot-tall climbing tower or challenge yourself with the high ropes course. You can also take an adventure along mountain or oceanside hiking or biking trails – when completed, there will be more than 100 miles of trails available.

A Place for Families to Gather

Ritz-Carlton Club members Jeff and Yvonne Reid say that the Kapalua Bay property reminds them of the family vacations they enjoyed growing up.

"I had grown up having a family vacation every year. They were some of the fondest memories of my siblings that I have," Jeff Reid says. "We were searching for that and looked many places and on several islands - then we found this property (Kapalua Bay) and it all came together. Our greatest motivation to purchase here (The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay) was to have a peaceful time with our family, find a sense of well being, Hawaiian culture, good nutrition and slow down from our busy hectic lives on the mainland."
