The one- to three-bedroom redesigned accommodations aim to honor Montage Kapalua Bay’s existing architecture by mirroring the concept and story behind the resort’s signature Cane & Canoe restaurant.
The communal atmosphere found at the restaurant, as well as its rich wood scrollwork, woven textures, and vibrant floral touches, are now also reflective within all guest accommodations.
“Our goal was to create a neutral palette with little saturated colors throughout that wouldn’t distract guests from the beauty of Montage Kapalua Bay’s natural surroundings,” said Liz Dauwe, associate design director of Wilson Associates, the Dallas-based interior and architectural design that oversaw the project, in a written release. “There is so much color around the islands; the canvas of artwork is truly the landscape you see just beyond the interior walls.”
References to Hawaii and Maui are subtly layered within the design palette. Each accommodation features Koa wood, an endemic wood to the islands with red tones.
In addition, all accommodations feature custom-made throw pillows with island-inspired floral prints and colored fabrics. The rooms are finished with contemporary chandeliers and custom artwork by local artisans.
The enhancement of the design continues outside on the private lanais with a pūne’e, a traditional Hawaiian daybed for guests to relax and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, and be connected by the energy of the land and the Pacific Ocean.
The 24-acre Montage Kapalua Bay has 50 residences ranging from one to four bedrooms. Residential-style accommodations include large private lanais, fully equipped kitchens, master suites and luxurious bathrooms.
