Because nothing nurtures relationships like having new experiences together, the iconic Four Seasons Resort Maui invites couples to revel in a selection of imaginative experiences designed to create a deeper journey, in a way that only Four Seasons Maui can. Led by interesting and dynamic employees and partners, and set against the stunning backdrop of Maui, these experiences make their debut during Couples Season, this September through November 2017.
“The Resort has always been committed to offering a long list of activities, many complimentary, to our guests, especially during Couples Season,” says Regional Vice President and General Manager Jean Claude Wietzel. “This year, we are excited to unveil new experiences driven by what is truly at the heart of our Resort – our people. Their passions and skills are diverse, and I’m confident they will leave a lasting impression.”
While quintessentially Maui activities like snorkeling, outrigger canoe paddling and stand-up paddleboarding are available as always, the special Couples Season experiences include:
Hawaiian Star Stories
Famed navigator Kala Baybayan Tanaka and guests “talk story” over after dinner drinks, as she recounts the brave history of ancient Polynesian wayfinders, who used only the stars, wind and currents to find their way to the Hawaiian islands.
Guests discover the private world of rising “somms” in this late-night series where they join the Resort’s young sommeliers in a personal behind-the-scenes, industry-style tasting.
Professional adventure photographer Daniel Sullivan has spent his life behind a lens and the last several years capturing every inch of Maui’s dramatic coastline.

Rosé & Lei
