Wailea and Makena are defined by well-built, upscale homes, gated communities, manicured lawns and tree-shaded streets. Multi-million-dollar hotels sit regally on their exquisite beachfront perches and are enjoyed by thousands of visitors annually. Five golf courses are an integral part of the Wailea/Makena area. They stretch north to south with both mountain and ocean vistas. Wailea is generally acknowledged as one of the finest planned resort communities in the world. Wailea's 1500 acres are home to some of the best hotels in the world, most notably the Four Seasons and Grand Wailea resorts, along with a great mix of single-family homes, condominiums and sporting facilities. Because the hotels offer so many shopping opportunities to their guests, there isn't much in the way of services in Wailea itself.
The Shops at Wailea provide upscale retail and dining to residents and visitors.Moving southward, Wailea gives way to Makena, boasting more natural beauty with Maluaka and Makena beaches. As the road continues south of Makena, it winds past beachfront homes and ends at La Perouse and Ahihi Bay and acres of lava fields, stark remnants of Mt. Haleakala's most recent volcanic activity.
