Wailea - Four Seasons Maui
We arrived at the Four Seasons Wailea, a little bit prior to check in time, as we were hoping to drop off our bags so we could explore some more.  This hotel, blew me away.
When we arrived, the hotel parking option is only valet.  They not only take your bags and open the door - but they asked us if they could remove our empty water bottles and clean our car so it was spotless upon return.  Then the staff presented us with fresh leis, lavender scented face clothes to cool down with, and mint ginger lemonade and fresh pineapple while we checked in.
I had booked the cheaper room option (garden view) for $499/night, but when we checked in, they asked if we would like a discounted room upgrade to an ocean view (normally $699) for only $50/night more.  Of course we took this deal.  Our room wasn't ready yet, but we dropped off our bags, and they advised us they would call when our room was ready.  We quickly explored their lobby and were amazed with the most gorgeous fountain/swimming pools.  These pools were kid friendly, but we were definitely looking forward to checking out the adult only infinity pools.
Then off we went to explore.
We stumbled upon a hidden gem not too far from our hotel.  This was the perfect spot to chill, and soak up the quieter part of Hawaii.

After our beach hangs, we headed over to Kihei for some shopping and lunch.  I loved shopping in Kihei.  More than I loved shopping in Lahaina.  We found some surf décor, pineapple shaped wooden bowls, and the coolest skate shop.  After getting our shopping fix on, we had some happy hour fish tacos, and took a quick selfie in Kihei, before heading back to our hotel.
Once we actually checked into our room, we were surprised to find a bottle of champagne and fresh fruit congratulating us on our wedding anniversary.

We had such a gorgeous view from our balcony again. 
We also had the most amazing marble bathroom.

So we headed downstairs to check out the adult only Serenity Pool and swim up bar, but first we met with Chef Vincent in the lobby who was preparing us our Ultimate Dinner for the following day.  It was basically 10 questions about what we like, don't like, etc.  It was so exciting to know that he was putting together a custom menu just for us.  He was even flying in duck just for me :)

And then we headed over to the beach to catch the sunset.

After watching the sun go down, we headed back upstairs to enjoy our champagne and fruit.

  1. Now I am all caught up! I haven't been on Bloglovin in awhile and that is where I follow you. What an amazing time you both had. Your pictures I'm sure didn't capture everything about your vacation but it did let my imagination wander a bit. A beautiful paradise. I'm sure it was good to be back home with little Sophie. Thanks for sharing! Back to reality now.
