Maui Resort Offers Eco-Friendly Car Option

This is great news for travelers who want to be eco-conscious but don't want to skimp on perks: The Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has launched a new "green" limousine service using the all-electric Tesla S 85 sedan to transport guests from the Kahului airport to the Resort...and all around the island.

The Tesla S 85 four-door sedan can accommodate three passengers plus the driver and is available for round trip airport service as well as for escorted trips around the island on an hourly or daily rate. The Tesla is also being added to the complimentary transportation options that are included in the Maile, Lokelani, and Elite Oceanfront Suite packages. The black/black electric vehicle can travel 250 miles between charges, so no worries about running out of power on the side of the road. 

Contact Four Seasons Resort Maui concierge staff at 808-874-2201 to rent the Tesla S 85. For excursions, the rate is $145.00 per hour with a two-hour minimum; airport transportation one-way is $253.00.

The hotel has also launched an initiative to plant 10 million trees. This project, Team for Trees, focuses on Hawaii's smallest island, Kaho'olawe, a desolate and barren place that was used as a training ground and bombing range for the US Armed Forces from World War II until 1990. The Resort's staff has joined with the Kaho'olawe Island Reserve Commission to help restore the island's environment, planting more than 2,000 native trees, shrubs and grasses.
