Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa spans twenty-two beautiful, oceanfront acres in South Maui. The resort’s prime, peninsula location sits between Ulua Beach on the north and Wailea Beach on the south.
The address for Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is: 3700 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea, Hawaii 96753 USA.
South Maui tends to be sunnier as compared to other areas on Maui. This aspect can be particularly important during winter months when a tad more rain refreshes the island. Though there are no guarantees, Wailea is a better bet for sunnier winter days.
The Wailea resort area as a whole makes a great base for a Maui vacation. The snorkeling is fantastic. You’ll find excellent shopping at The Shops of Wailea and superb dining in and around the Wailea resort hotels — all within walking distance.
Wailea Beach Marriott Resort offers 544 rooms and suites, though at first glance, you’d never guess there are that many rooms. No building is taller than a coconut tree.
The beds were very comfortable. I made a comment about how comfortable they were to a member of staff. She told me that all the matresses have recently been replaced.
The tiled floor were a little different than most carpeted rooms in Hawaii. It forced us to live more like a local and slip off our shoes before entering the room. Otherwise, we tracked in grit and dirt. Housekeeping did a nice job of cleaning and mopping the floors daily.
We were assigned to a room with two queen beds so we didn’t have a sitting area. From photos I’ve seen the rooms with king beds have a sitting area, which would be more desirable for couples seeking romance.
The lanais were well-sized and included a table and two chairs.
Rooms are equipped with a mini-refrigerator.
** 2016 Update: rooms were updated in 2016. All our photos are from the earlier design.
Wailea Beach Marriott Resort offers five pools with three of them having water slides. There’s a pool for everyone here — from playful kids to serenity seekers.
The infinity pool is stunning. We’d love to come back here during humpback whale season (January – April) to spend a lazy day floating near the infinity pool edge while whale watching. On a scale of one to ten, that would be awesome!
The resort offers a business center and a fitness center. There was a nice selection of shops and most days local artists and crafters set up displays.
The resort hosts a luau four nights per week. They have a permanent stage with the beautiful Pacific ocean and sunsets being the backdrop. We did not have the opportunity to go to their luau, but the setting looked ideal.
Mandara Spa provides a relaxing environment for massages, facials and body treatments. They also have a full service salon.
The resort offers onsite restaurants and a Starbucks. See this link for more details.
Things to know before you go:
– Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is a bit of a bargain within swank Wailea. Wailea is the most expensive resort area in all of Hawaii.

See this link for their specials and also check rates with the online travel agencies like Expedia.com, Travelocity.com, Orbitz.com, etc.
– The $30 resort fee includes self-parking, phone calls, many resort discounts and other services that you can review at this link.
– Self-park and valet services are both available.
– Wifi access is free at the resort’s expansive, open air lobby.
As a matter of disclosure, our stay at Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa was arranged for us as part of the #seeMaui visit. As always, we share the same advice on Go Visit Hawaii as what we would give to our friends and family.
