Entering the Wailea Resort, one immediately notices a change in their surroundings from the rest of South Maui. Wailea was conceived as a planned unit development (PUD) in the late 1960's by one of Hawaii's largest land owners, Alexander & Baldwin. The land previously used for cattle ranching was dry and covered with Kiawe trees and cactus. The difference between what exists today from the past is night and day; from dust to opulent green.
The 1,800-acre master-planned resort at Makena, includes the 310-room beachfront Maui Beach & Golf Resort with two 18-hole golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., surrounded by approximately 1,300 acres of undeveloped land. Maluaka Beach surrounds the Makena Resort. The historic Keawalae Congregational Church and popular Makena small craft/boat landing are nearby. Residents love the stability of the warm island weather and gorgeous aquamarine coastline. Many of Maui's finest luxury homes are located within these planned communities.
Wailea and Makena sit on the south shore of the island just past Kihei, about 30 - 40 minutes from Kahului Airport (Maui's main airport). Real estate for both areas includes high-end luxury condos, homes, land. The Wailea Community Association acts as the master association and maintains Wailea Resort at the high standards for which it is world-renowned.
