The iconic Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Resort, recently announced the completion of a property-wide refresh—the most extensive in its 30-year history.
The recently redone spaces included the Botero Lounge, the exclusive Napua rooms, suites and private lounge, and two popular dining venues into a brunch restaurant, ‘Ikena, and grab-and-gourmet market, Loulu. The renovation will also include a completely redone wellness and spa experience that will debut in 2023.
The Napua tower, an exclusive enclave of hotel rooms and suites set in a dedicated “tower” in the heart of the resort, debuted in June following a complete renovation. The space also includes private concierge service and the exclusive Napua Lounge with food, beverages, and fun daily activations, including chefs’ stations, beverage tastings, live entertainment, spa and holistic wellness sessions and more.
The Botero Lounge’s extensive private collection of Botero sculptures restored pieces to their original form, and introduced new menus and specialty cocktails. It will also host the resort’s new “The Art of…” series that includes guest-centric workshops such as “The Art of Sushi-Making,” “The Art of Whiskey,” and “The Art of Cocktail Mixing”—all taught by experts in their respective fields.
The 50,000-sq.-ft. Spa Grande will receive a top-to-bottom transformation. Of note is the fact it houses Hawaii’s first-ever biostation facility, featuring personalized treatment plans with proven, effective, and safe anti-aging solutions.
