While its sparkling sands, cobalt waters, and pristine natural landscapes may be Maui’s primary allure, her legendary spirit of Aloha is a natural wonder in its own right. From the time-honored tradition of ho’okipa (or welcome) at any of our magnificent hotels and resorts, hospitality is the hallmark of the Maui experience.
Accommodation choices are as diverse as the island itself, offering secluded hotels for Executive Retreats to award winning convention facilities. Incentives, conventions and retreats all find a special experience on Maui; your attendees will return refreshed and rejuvenated.
Maui's many impeccable resorts are clustered in seaside areas along the western coast (Kapalua and Kaanapali), down south (Wailea and Makena), and a high-end secluded retreat to the east in Hana. The island’s properties have over 19,000 overnight rooms combined, plus on-site luxuries like sprawling swimming pools, sumptuous spas, high-end dining establishments, family-centered activities and much more.
Maui's commitment to unparalleled leisure and incentive travel experiences extends to business needs, as well. Its top group properties have dedicated conference spaces and superb special event venues, and Maui's renewable energy, ocean sciences and agricultural biotech fields can infuse programs with fresh expertise and new ideas.
The Unexpected Maui
Even with its mega resorts and activity outfitters, Maui retains an authentic charm, with mom-and-pop shops & cafes holding their own among brand-name fashion and big-name chefs. Though it's Hawaii’s second-largest island, the “Valley Isle” has a relatively small residential population, and on its eastern coast, the town of Hana is considered a serene haven of traditional Hawaiian life with historic buildings and a quaint main street running through the heart of the community.
The Ultimate Ocean Experience
From swimming and boogie boarding to sailing and windsurfing, Maui offers every kind of water sport plus crystalline beaches in sands of white, black and red
Neighboring Molokini Island, a crescent moon-shaped landmass just offshore of Maui, has more than 250 species of tropical fish swarming around its vibrant coral reefs. It’s pure bliss for snorkeling and scuba diving
During winter, Maui’s shallow waters attract humpback whales that breed and nurse their young; whale-watching boats leave from the harbor town of Lahaina, once the hub of Hawaii’s whaling industry and now on the National Register of Historic Places, bustling with cafes, shopping boutiques and entertainment venues
For landlubbers, the Maui Ocean Center showcases the best of Pacific Ocean marine life on terra firma and can be booked for private after-hours events, pairing unique underwater vistas with delectable catered dinners. Choose Maui and your attendees will thank you!
