The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, a luxury resort located on Maui, has announced the completion of massive renovation that practically transformed the resort. The resort now offers upgraded guest rooms, suites and residences, an enhanced lobby and pool experience, and the new Kai Cafe. Celebrating its milestone 25th anniversary, these new enhancements aim to honor the last quarter of a century while ushering in what the hotel is billing as a new wave of natural Aloha.

"This is a very gratifying moment in history for The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua,” said Mike Kass, general manager, in a written release. “The fresh new room design and exciting improvements reflect our true identity, honoring our native Hawaiian culture and bringing about a fresh, new chapter of service for our guests.”

The new guest rooms, suites, and residences feature floor-to-ceiling windows and the resort’s elevated lobby experience is inspired by the Hawaiian word, Mana, meaning the power of the elemental forces in nature embodied in an object or person. Lighting and elements of fire aim to meld with organic lines and textures to create an indoor-outdoor feeling.
