The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua Completes Massive Renovation

The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua

The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, a luxury resort located on Maui, recently announced the completion of massive renovation that practically transformed the resort. The resort now offers upgraded guestrooms, suites and residences, an enhanced lobby and pool experience, and the new Kai Cafe. 

Celebrating its milestone 25th anniversary, these new enhancements honor the last quarter of a century while ushering in a new wave of natural Aloha.
“This is a very gratifying moment in history for The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua,” said Mike Kass, general manager, in a written release. “The fresh new room design and exciting improvements reflect our true identity, honoring our native Hawaiian culture and bringing about a fresh, new chapter of service for our guests.”
The new guestrooms, suites and residences have floor-to-ceiling windows, and the resort’s elevated lobby experience is inspired by the Hawaiian word, Mana, meaning the power of the elemental forces in nature embodied in an object or person. Lighting and elements of fire aim to meld with organic lines and textures to create an indoor-outdoor feeling.

The 10,000-square-foot, three-level pool and 20,000-square-foot sun deck are now accompanied by upgraded Cabana Suites complete with butler service, flat-screen televisions and a private refrigerator. Also new is refreshed landscaping, including the addition of puakenikeni trees, hibiscus and lauhala.
Located on the lobby level of the resort, the new Kai Cafe offers an array of house-made pastries, organic smoothies, fresh local coffee and deli selections, tropical fruits, sandwiches, wraps and salads.
