Hotel Information

   Located on 23 lush oceanfront acres at legendary Pu‘u Keka‘a on Ka‘anapali Beach, Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa invites travelers to experience adventure and family fun on the island of Maui. Relax at the resort’s 142-yard lagoon style pool, taste fresh island cuisine, learn indigenous Hawaiian cultural activities and play at the white sandy beach. Eighty-three percent of the resort’s 508 rooms and suites feature breathtaking views of the Pacific, and sister islands Lanai and Molokai. At sunset, the resort showcases its iconic cliff dive ceremony, a tradition since the resort first opened in 1963. Make lasting memories as you unwind during sunset, snorkel with tropical fish and honu (green sea turtles), learn ukulele with family or rejuvenate at The Spa at Black Rock.


The Island of Maui

   Maui is known as the Valley Isle as two major volcanoes form the island with a verdant valley nestled between. It’s a tropical paradise blessed with beautiful beaches, jaw-dropping scenery and year-round warm temperatures.

   Stand above a sea of clouds high atop Haleakala. Lose count of the waterfalls along the road as you maneuver the hairpin turns of the Hana highway. The second largest Hawaiian island has a smaller population than you’d expect. Today, Maui reveals its cultural past through a thriving arts scene infused with the life-embracing spirit of aloha.

   On Maui, you’ll have plenty of chances to try an array of outdoor adventures you’ve never experienced before. Snorkelers will be rewarded with unforgettable sights in Molokini ’s luminous waters. Or feel the rush of your first surf lesson off the shores of historic Lahaina. On land, go on a horseback ride on the slopes of Haleakala, Maui’s highest peak. You can even take your first helicopter ride to see breathtaking views of Maui’s pristine valleys and waterfalls.

   From the scenic slopes of fertile upcountry Maui to beaches that have repeatedly been voted among the best in the world, a visit to the Valley Isle recharges the senses. But like every good magic trick, you’ll have to see it for yourself to believe it. Relaxation, rejuvenation and renewal are all held in this magical place that the spirit calls home!
