Resorts[edit]

Wailea Resort is a 1,500-acre (6.1 km2), master-planned resort located on Maui's sunny, southern leeward coast. Its development is guided by two important documents: a master plan that allegedly ensures low density and good community planning, and the Wailea Community Association's design guidelines which claim to preserve Maui's island environment in all new building projects.[4] Wailea was named one of the country's 99 Best Recreational & Residential Private Communities in America. Many of Wailea's single-family and condominium complexes offer gated entryways for enhanced security and privacy. Utilities are buried underground, and roadways are landscaped. Nearby are Wailea's many amenities, including restaurants, championship golf courses, tennis facilities, shopping, and beaches.
