Wailea Beach Resort has completed their $100 million renovation, which made its debut in late December.

The 22-acre, updated resort will feature six culinary options, three pools, 547 updated rooms and suites, new indoor and outdoor event spaces, a fitness center and spa. The totally updated design is inspired by the resort’s proximity to the Wailea shoreline and has a clean, simplistic aesthetic.

“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 redesigned guestrooms have new furniture, in-room technology like mirror-casting and music streaming; every room has an outdoor balcony.

The new restaurants include, Humble Market Kitchin by Roy Yamaguchi, KAPA Bar & Grill, Whale’s Tale, and Mo Bettah Food Truck and NALU Pool Bar.

The hotel has 30,000 square feet of indoor meeting space and 72,000 square feet of outdoor event space offered at the resort.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
