Dianna Wong Interiors
Protected natural landscapes and lava rock peninsulas inspire the feeling of being transported a world away while still being close to the island’s most desired experiences at the Ritz Kapalua.
The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua is a luxurious, upscale property located on 54 acres. It’s surrounded by 36 holes of championship golf set on the site of a historic pineapple plantation. Upon arriving at The Ritz-Carlton Maui, Kapalua, guests will be welcomed by bright and colorful native flora and fauna that flow into the all-new lobby lanai featuring unobstructed views of Honokahua Bay. The infinity-edge lanai is equally breathtaking as it is meaningful, honoring Hawaiian culture and telling the story of Kapalua. The hand-carved wooden kapa panels adorning the space symbolize the six bays surrounding the resort that were favorites of the Hawaiian chiefs. The distinct lighting fixtures are inspired by ancient fishing traps, which were designed to catch fish for royalty. With multiple seating areas, complete with firepits, the lanai offers a lively and inviting atmosphere from sunrise to sunset. Embracing Maui’s natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, the new guest rooms, suites, and residences, all with private terraces, feature delicate sand tones and custom wood finishes, evoking a feeling of calm and serenity. A centerpiece of the resort is the 10,000-square-foot pool experience. Inspired by the natural lava rock formation in front of the resort at Makaluapuna Point, the resort’s three zero edge pools connected by waterfalls and lush tropical landscaping.
