Maui's Luxury Grand WaileaWords by Carolyn Steere

Aloha Maui. This beautiful Hawaiian island is a popular destination for weddings, honeymoons, romance and family travel and is a place where swimsuit season never ends.
There are many choices for your destination wedding, but one to consider is the Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort situated on the southwest shore. The Grand Wailea checks all the boxes. Expansive lawns and manicured gardens, contemporary luxury, lavish accommodations, Island activities galore and inspired cuisine are all part of the experience.
One problem you will encounter is choosing from the many options for your wedding ceremony and reception. There are secluded gardens adjacent to the ocean, terraces with unobstructed sea views and a New England-style seaside chapel where you can enjoy the traditional walk down the aisle, to name just a few.
One “not to miss” experience is the 50,000 square foot Spa Grande, which features the unique “Healing Waters of Maui” terme hydrotherapy, which includes Swiss jet showers, a Japanese furo, cascading waterfalls and five specialty baths. Also, each amazing spa treatment incudes a complimentary loofah scrub.
Separate adult and family pools, tennis, golf and every water sport one can imagine are readily accessible, so whether your guests want to break a sweat or bask in the sun, their desires are easily met. There is a cocktail of exciting eats on property including a “floating” seafood restaurant named after Hawaii’s official state fish, Humuhumunukunukuapua’a. We can boast that we mastered the pronunciation by the end of our meal!
This Hawaiian oasis is definitely one to put on your short list of wedding venue “possibles.”
