AC Hotel by Marriott Maui Wailea arrives in the luxury resort of Wailea in South Maui, the brand’s first property in the Hawaiian Islands, providing a designer and affordable option to the city. Originally slated to open last month, the property is now ready to welcome guests on April 29.
General Manager Kaleo Kenui said, “We have decided to delay the opening of the hotel so that our team can take the time to adjust the hotel’s public spaces to reflect recent social situations and to train our staff. team with new safety cleaning protocols. ”
Adjacent to the Marriott Residence Inn and across from the Wailea Tennis Club, the new hotel is close to the beach and offers affordable luxury in a contemporary package, with rooms in neutral color palettes, hardwood floors, and comfortable furnishings designed to maximize space. .
Every room has “smart” lighting and temperature controls with perfectly placed USB sockets. One of the brand’s guidelines is attention to the actual comfort experiences of guests, which are evident throughout the hotel.
The art in the rooms is organized around the culture of Maui and the neighboring islands of Lanaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, and Molokini, like Haleakala and, of course, the mighty Pacific Ocean. All rooms have private lanais, ensuring guests the privacy, peace and quiet that this slice of paradise offers.
The lush three-acre property includes 110 rooms and 12 suites, a business center, fitness area, and infinity pool with a poolside tiki bar and cabanas, along with two versatile outdoor public spaces, AC Lounge® and AC Kitchen. The first is the heart of the hotel, where guests can work and dine with flexible seating. The open space easily transitions from day to night with local dishes and craft cocktails. The latter, AC Kitchen, is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, offering patrons an international Hawaiian-inspired menu.
The hotel will follow Marriott International’s enhanced health and safety standards and protocols, including guest and employee face coverage requirements, physical distance policies, reduced meeting seating capacity, frequent cleaning of areas with high use of mobile technology throughout the facility.
This new arrival at the hotel is a welcome addition to accommodation options in South Maui, with rooms starting at $ 299. With visitor traffic declining due to the global pandemic, now is a good time to test the waters with AC Marriott’s concept of delivering luxury and hospitality at affordable prices. It is well received as visitors return to the islands in search of safety, comfort and an aesthetic environment.
