A honeymooners dream, the 40-acre Grand Wailea overlooks the Pacific and hails from the era of Hawaiian mega-resorts. A Japanese multimillionaire splashed out serious cash on original art, much of it created by locals for the hotel. Forty acres of lush tropical gardens grace this getaway. Expect over-the-top water features among the nine swimming pools like slides, caves, a Tarzan swing, swim-up bars, and a canyon with an enclosed “lava tube.” The property even has a Hawaiian-themed restaurant set in a manmade lagoon: the renowned Humuhumu
. The 780 rooms all include a private patio or balcony—opt for the Napua Club level for a more intimate “boutique hotel within a resort” feel.
