RECREATION TRAVEL & The Art of Lounging Things keep looking better and better at Hotel Wailea , which is now a Relais & Châteaux property. The latest addition to the chic luxury boutique property will make many dream of a summer interisland getaway. Now, you can step into the spacious and sexy cabanas, which flank the recently unveiled pool. Ranging from 216 to 576 square feet, these spacious havens stand out from other poolside facilities in the islands. Elevating the experience is raw food chef-turned-mixologist Kerry Mekeel. For the orchard-to-glass cocktail menu, she meticulously crafts custom libations with handpicked island fruit, fresh-pressed juices, local kombucha and even organic hydrosols. With the hotel’s other services, like private personal training and valet beach service, a staycation on Maui’s South Shore has never looked so good.
