AC Hotel by Marriott Maui Wailea is expected to open the doors for its first guests in April, marking the first property from the brand in Hawaii. Nestled on three acres of lush gardens, the four-story hotel’s design is inspired by its surrounding environment. It features 110 guestrooms with 12 suites, a business centre, a fitness area and an infinity-edge pool complete with a poolside tiki bar and cabanas.
The modern guestrooms feature a neutral-palette colour scheme, hardwood floors, and sleek and elevated furnishings to create a greater sense of flow and space. Guest will enjoy smart features like ambiance controls to adjust temperature and lighting and traditional and USB outlets in all the right places. The rooms feature curated artwork that reflect Maui and offer views of the Pacific Ocean, neighbour islands Lanaʻi, Kahoʻolawe and Molokini, and Mount Haleakala.
All rooms will have a private lanai, ensuring guests have the space they deserve to relax in paradise. The property is within walking distance to Wailea, Ulua, Mōkapu and Keawakapu beaches; and retail centres Wailea Village, Wailea Gateway and the Shops at Wailea offering 100 shops and galleries combined. Other nearby experiences includes more than 40 restaurants and bars, world-class spas, Wailea Tennis Club and Wailea Golf’s three championship courses.
Kaleo Kenui, Dual General Manager, AC Hotel by Marriott Maui Wailea and Residence Inn Maui Wailea said in a statement that AC Hotels is a beloved global brand associated with purposeful, timeless design and shared that the company is working hard to seamlessly blend the brand’s signature amenities with the island’s naturally-inspiring landscape and aesthetics and is thrilled to bring AC Hotels to life on the beautiful island home.
He mentioned that the opening of the new hotel will offer more options for visitors and at the same time allow the company to continue supporting the local economy by creating more jobs and infusing as much locally-produced art, crafts and culinary creations as it can. He also shared that Maui is the best island in the world as evidenced by the high percentage rate of repeat visitors and said that the hotel is optimistic about the return of travel this spring.
