The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, Kā‘anapali (westin.com) has one more reason to visit—it recently unveiled its Hōkūpa‘a Tower, a $120 million update bringing resortgoers the best in luxury amenities. The crown jewel is The Lanai at Hōkūpa‘a, a gathering spot for everything from infinity-edge cocktail pool lounges to chef demonstrations. Heavenly Spa by Westin has also been recently remodeled in the new tower, and an intimate 217 guest rooms keeps the experience lowkey, although if you want to visit other parts of the resort, Hōkūpa‘a guests get priority bookings.

Head to Hana
Formerly the Travaasa Hāna, the newly minted Hāna-Maui Resort (hyatt.com) retains all its magic. Under Hyatt’s Destination Hotels brand, Hāna-Maui Resort is the ultimate reward for completing the Road to Hāna. With only 75 guest rooms—some of which are intentionally designed without modern trappings such as clocks, radios or televisions to encourage visitors to truly relax—and several dining options, it’s a restorative experience after all the curves, waterfalls, lava tubes and hiking. For those less inclined to travel by winding road, helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft landings will be offered soon.
