About Grand Wailea – A Waldorf Astoria Resort
Grand Wailea occupies 40 meticulously landscaped acres on Maui’s beautiful Wailea Beach, voted as one of the best beaches in America. Luxurious inside and out, guests from all ages can enjoy numerous activities from relaxation at our Spa Grande, complimentary guided tours at our art gallery, sumptuous fine dining, or take part in more active activities including golf & tennis at this Maui hotel.
Children ages 5-12 can participate in full or half-day sessions at the Camp Grande or splash and play in the Wailea Canyon Activity Pool featuring water slides, a lazy river and the world’s only water elevator.
The hotel was built by Japanese developer Takeshi Sekiguchi, who also put together a large art collection for the hotel. It opened in 1991 as the Grand Hyatt Waliea. The hotel was built at an estimated cost of $650 million, which proved to be more than the economy could sustain, and Sekiguchi lost control of the property, which was sold for $263 million in 1998. The property has been sold several times since then and it is now operated by Hilton Worldwide. It was the first hotel to join Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts in 2006 after the Manhattan hotel became a brand. It is the second largest hotel on the island of Maui and is one of Hawaii’s most well known resorts. It is also the site of the first water elevator and the first rotating barrel pipe ride.
The resort has four restaurants, four bars, and Sunset Cabana dining as well as room service.
