Hawaii’s island of Maui has long been reserved for luxury travelers and honeymooners, but that might be changing thanks to some more affordable hotel openings just minutes away from Wailea Beach’s soft-sand shores. With rates starting at $313 a night, Marriott’s new Residence Inn‘s studios and suites have in-room kitchens and include a free daily breakfast bar and pool-side activities, helping families leave more room in their budget for fun around the island.
After a morning dip in the pool, drive inland to Maui Tropical Plantation for a tram or zipline tour of the historic sugar cane plantation fields, before lunch at farm-sourced Mill House. Swim alongside sea turtles on a traditional Hawaiian outrigger canoe excursion from Maui Paddle Sports or plan a full day trip to visit the soaring valleys and volcanic shorelines along the east of the island on the one-lane road to Hana. Adults can sip on craft Pineapple Mana wheat beer on a private tasting and tour at newly opened Maui Brewing Company or grab an island-famous Mai Tai at Monkeypod, before sitting down for a classic Hawaiian cuisine, panoramic ocean views, and spectacular sunsets at Gannon’s.
