Lonely Planet review
This fortress-like exterior at this striking place isn’t particularly inviting, but the aloha of the staff and the stunning Maluʻaka Beach, which is just out back, vault this secluded retreat to the top of the heap. Rooms shine with simple but sophisticated style: white bedspreads, subdued tropical throws, granite countertops and cherrywood furniture. The kicker? No resort fee or parking fee.
The beach is a top launch pad for snorkelers and kayakers hoping to spy a green sea turtle or two. Golfers are shuttled, for no extra fee, to the Wailea golf courses, not the adjacent Makena course, which is now private.
