Montage Hotels & Resorts recently announced the grand opening of Montage Kapalua Bay, the long-awaited luxury hotel on the northwest coast of Maui.

Following a $15 million renovation of the former Residences at Kapalua Bay, the new all-suite resort is a private oceanfront escape with an emphasis on luxury in a Hawaiian setting.
"We are thrilled to open our first Hawaiian resort on the stunning shores of Kapalua Bay," said Alan Fuerstman, Montage founder and CEO, in a written release. "The genuine authenticity of the Hawaiian culture aligns naturally with Montage's focus on personalized service. We look forward to welcoming guests and the community to consider this as their gathering place where life-long memories will be created."

Montage Kapalua Bay offers 50 luxurious residential-style suites, ranging from one to four bedrooms. Note: Montage Kapalua Bay also offers 54 Montage branded residences for purchase. Each room features large "lanais" (balconies), offering a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and neighboring islands. 

Guestrooms include a new, sleek color palette and furnishings, including day beds on the balconies, creating a flowing indoor and outdoor entertainment space. Note: Suites are also equipped with full gourmet kitchens to prepare meals or where Montage chefs may prepare dinner for VIPs. Other comforts of home include signature Montage bedding, a spacious living area including a sectional sofa with an additional bed and a washer and dryer. Nice Touch: Bringing a touch of the authenticity of the island into the experience, each guest suite will feature an original piece of hand-painted local artwork.

Montage Kapalua Bay's signature restaurant, Cane & Canoe, is reminiscent of a traditional Hawaiian canoe house, where locals and artisans would socialize, make sails, shave wood and weave baskets. The restaurant's interiors honor the Hawaiian culture with a comfortable, communal atmosphere with wood scrollwork, woven textures and vibrant floral touches.

Tip: For a more casual dining experience, the outdoor Sunset Patio offers an all-day menu suited for leisurely poolside dining. The adjacent Hana Hou bar will also serve as the perfect gathering spot to end the day and take in the Hawaiian sunset.

At the new Mahana Market, VIPs may purchase an array of Hawaiian gourmet goods. Open daily, guests may select from an assortment of "gourmet to go" prepared, local organic foods and curated wines.

Spa Montage Kapalua Bay, designed with inspiration from the mountains and ocean to create a peaceful surrounding with natural materials, is a 30,000 square-foot tropical  space where VIPs may experience all of the components that contribute to a balanced and healthy lifestyle in Hawaii, customarily known as "pono." 

An expansive fitness center and wellness program complements the spa therapies, introducing the benefits of movement to enrich experiences from the inside and out. Highlights include circuit training machines, the Kinesis System, free weights and a full range of cardio equipment. 

Become one of the first to experience the new resort and be rewarded for your early reservations when you book the Montage Maui Memories Experience. The package includes $50 daily breakfast credit; $200 Spa Montage credit and overnight accommodations in a new One-Bedroom Residential-Style Suite. This special offer is available to book until June 30 for travel from now through December 19.
