Exploring the new Montage Kapalua

Share Button

Montage KapaluaIf you’re on Instagram and follow people on Maui, you’ve probably seen a lot of posts from them of the new Montage at Kapalua Bay. The resort brand is well-known on the mainland, one that offers hotel stays as well as residential ownership opportunities — the rooms are all equipped with the comforts of home, with kitchens (some very deluxe), washer/dryers, and lanais of varying sizes.

Locals consider the Montage to be a luxury resort — which it is — but mistakenly think it’s too unaffordable. We were actually (pleasantly) surprised to find out that they are having a kamaaina special for now, with suites starting at $395 per night (valid Hawaii I.D. required). As you can see from the photos and video, a suite can fit four to six people, which then brings the cost of the stay down exponentially. You have the ability to cook your own meals, which leaves you to enjoy the pool, beach, and other resort activities with your group.

Upon arrival, you are greeted with a cold towel, fresh-cut pineapple, and water. Aaaaah.

 

Here’s a video of our suite to give you a better idea of the size and layout:

 

We also dined at the Montage Kapalua’s signature restaurant, Cane & Canoe, which features longtime Maui talent executive chef Riko Bartolome. It was probably one of the best meals that Julie Yoneyama and I had enjoyed in a while.

To start: Your bread basket is 'ulu (breadfruit) bead with 'ulu hummus. Brilliant.

 

These are just the highlights. To see the rest of my photos from this trip, click here.

If I give you an ulu will you make ulu hummus for me? That sounds delish! PS. Kapalua Resort is one of my fave places ever. And $400-ish for 6 people is not bad! Now I want to go. AdStreamz getaway?
