Also in South Maui and past Kihei is the beautiful resort town of Wailea & Makena. The weather in Wailea is amazing, the location creates a micro-climate, the perfect temperate weather. From the moment you make the turn from South Kihei Road on up to Kapili Drive and onto Wailea Alanui you immediately notice the change – not only in the climate but the beauty. Homes in Wailea are governed by the Wailea Resort Association and have certain standards, resulting in a higher price tag.
Wailea is home to world-class resorts: Wailea Beach Resort Marriott, Grand Wailea Maui a Waldorf Astoria Resort, Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea and The Fairmont Kea Lani Resort.
