Wailea Beach Resort-Marriott, Maui has completed its $100 million renovation and is set to reopen Dec. 24. The renovations now has six new restaurants, three new pools, and 547 redesigned rooms and suites as well as revamped meeting and event spaces, a fitness center and spa.

“We are thrilled to introduce guests and the community to our transformed resort, and to the enduring and evolving spirit of Maui that makes a visit to the island so memorable,” says Thomas Foti, general manager, Wailea Beach Resort – Marriott, Maui. “With a rich history as Wailea’s first resort and our desirable location just steps from the water’s edge, we look forward to welcoming our guests to discover the new Wailea Beach Resort.”

The 22-acre hotel is the closest resort to the Wailea shoreline and the new design brings the clean lines of the ocean within the rooms and spaces within the resort. They offer four ocean-view restaurants including Humble Market Kitchin by Roy Yamaguchi and five pools, including Hawaii’s longest resort water slide. There are 102,000 square feet of event space and direct access to The Sops at Wailea.
