Dive into the many senses of Maui! Allow us to guide you through the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and feeling of our island home. Each sensory experience below is one of a kind in every way- an elevated reflection of our culture ready to help you understand a little bit more of what Maui is all about. Use #SENSEtheDestination to share what you discover during your stay.
Breathe deeply and allow yourself to unwind as the sun begins to sink lower in the sky. Here, sunsets are not just a daily occurrence, they are a way of life that is not to be missed. Sit out on your private lanai with your favorite cocktail in hand (we suggest a Mai Tai) and enjoy as the pinks and oranges overtake the sky.
As you walk to your new home away from home, take a moment to inhale the scent of the Plumeria trees that pervade our resorts. For our return guests, that delicious floral aroma that swirls on the trade winds lets them know that they have returned to their island home.
In the evening at a luau, the beat of the drums and the call of the Pu shell pound out the age old rhythms that have been here since before written history began in our islands. Soak up the sounds, chants and dances of Polynesia at one of our nearby cultural celebrations. Pro Tip: the Andaz Wailea's lu'au is a favorite; contact our concierge to make your booking.
Maui is home to vibrant sea life and sunny, tropical days. Grab a tube of our reef-safe eco-friendly sunscreen at check-in and lather up as you stroll our miles of golden sand beaches, snorkel with chromatic tropical fish and cruise the Road to Hana. Plus, with our Raw Elements sunscreen, you can rest easy knowing that you are protecting our fragile island environment as you protect your skin.
Refresh your palette with POG juice at arrival. Made locally at Haleakala Dairy since 1971, POG (passionfruit, orange, guava) juice is a local treasure.
