Your Fabulous Maui Vacation Begins at Montage Kapalua Bay

Maui is a stunning destination on all levels. There’s the scenic beauty, the many things to do (or not do – it is a vacation after all) and the opportunity to leave any and all troubles behind, on the mainland. 

Kapalua Bay is one of the Valley Isle’s highlights, with beautiful beaches, incredible views of neighboring Molokai and Lanai and outstanding swimming and snorkeling.

Perched between Kapalua and Namalu Bay, Montage Kapalua Bay offers 24 acres of luxury accommodations. Between the rooms, food and activities, it’s a great base for a beautiful stay.

“Montage Kapalua Bay is perhaps the perfect Hawaiian resort for family celebrations of all types,” said Matt Bailey, General Manager of Montage Kapalua Bay. “Our spacious residences with their large lanais are wonderful for entertaining and other areas on property like the Cliff House, the Point Lawn or the Sunset Terrace are well-suited for larger events.” 

The Rooms
Montage Kapalua Bay distinguishes itself with one to three-bedroom residences. These large, luxury suites feature full-sized bedrooms, living and dining rooms, fully-equipped kitchens and big lanais to enjoy the ocean views and other scenery. At more than 2,000 square feet, the three-bedroom residential style suites have plenty of space for the entire family.

“With a standard hotel room, you are essentially getting a bedroom and a bath,” said Bailey. “With our residences, you are not only getting two to four bedrooms with their own en suite baths, but guests also enjoy fully outfitted gourmet kitchens, dining rooms and large, comfortable great rooms.”  

From there, stroll down to Kapalua Bay for swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding or just lounging in the sand. Montage rents all necessary equipment through Kapalua Bay Beach Crew on Kapalua beach. 

Delicious Eats and Drinks
Cane & Canoe offers farm (or boat) to table Hawaiian cuisine and gorgeous views. Built to evoke a traditional canoe house, the restaurant offers a wide variety of choices from fresh fish to filet mignon. These selections are complemented by comprehensive wine and cocktail choices.

“Some of Cane & Canoe’s favorite entrees include: Ora King Salmon with Meyer lemon risotto, local mushrooms, asparagus and arugula; Kona Kanpachi and Kauai Shrimp with hapa rice, green papaya salad, peanuts, and green coconut curry,” said Bailey. “New to our ala carte menu is our Duroc Pork Chop with apple-braised red cabbage, spätzle, caramelized Maui onion jam, and macadamia nut gremolata.”

For additional fare, Hana Hou & Beach Club serves up tropical drinks and sandwiches just a few steps from the beach along with excellent cocktails and snacks to enjoy poolside. Montage also offers in-residence dining, when you just want to relax and sit tight.

Enjoy Private Dining

Perched on the rocky shore of Kapalua Bay, The Cliff House, now plays host for couples looking for a romantic one-of-a-kind private dining destination. Couples can enjoy a serene seaside dining experience at this historic dining venue, originally built in 1940.

A new unique tasting menu includes dishes such as a 7 oz filet mignon and Kona Kanpachi & Kauai Shrimp. Treated to panoramic sunset views and a sound of waves crashing around them, couples can also choose to enhance their experience with live music, custom décor, an extended wine list, and/or photography.

Culture and Contentment
Montage offers a variety of classes and other events for guests to immerse themselves in Hawaiian culture. Make a lei, learn the ukulele or try out hula. Children can enjoy Paintbox, Montage’s signature immersive children’s program. 

“Teaching and sharing cultural practices, such as ukulele, hula, lei making or Hawaiian language, enriches the guests’ experience,” said Silla Kaina, Montage Kapalua Bay’s cultural ambassador. “We share our Aloha, which makes others feel welcome and appreciated.” 

For maximum relaxation, Spa Montage is just a few steps away. Take advantage of stream treatments, massage and other spa favorites or workout at the gym.

“Our spa just launched a new menu with two new signature treatments,” said Bailey. “Sugared Lilikoi Body Polish with Bamboo and local fruit enzymes to leave the skin feeling smooth and refined and Peace Within, a treatment with Ayurvedic principles.”  

Ultimately, what makes Montage special is the team’s attention to detail and efficient service.

“From the valet attendants to our cultural ambassadors, everyone at Montage Kapalua Bay shares their Aloha with guests and makes Montage Kapalua Bay such a special place to visit,” said Bailey. “Our associates get to know our guests’ preferences, families, and what an ideal stay means to them.”
