The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua

A luxury resort design on Maui that captures the spirit of Aloha and the meaning of Kapalua…. arms embracing the sea


Maui, Hawaii, USA


38.5 acres
548 guest rooms including 58 suites


Built in the heart of Pineapple fields, the design evolved to respect the discovery of ancient burial grounds. The reduced scale allowed the design to step down the slope of the land to the sea.

Set on 54 acres, the hotel carefully maintains the sacred Honokahua Preservation site known as a wahi pana to continue the heritage and tradition of Hawaiian culture as a gathering place for ceremony.
