Fall Deals on Golf, Villas and Vistas at Kapalua

It is widely known that the northwest quadrant of Maui is one of the most stunning geographic locations in the Hawaiian Islands (Note To Self: Prepare for onslaught of emails contradicting that statement from residents and/or fans of Hamakua Coast, Lanai City, Hana, Hilo, North Shore Oahu, etc.) That said, Kapalua is really one of the most spectacular places to call home, if only for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of your otherwise peachy slice of paradise.

The Kapalua Resort, currently populated by a half-dozen cranes and fairly well-concealed construction gear, is offering kama'aina hefty discounts on Fall stays in the 260 some-odd Bay, Ridge and Golf Villas. Be sure when booking that you are aware of the villa type you are staying in; approximately one-third of the villas at Kapalua have been refitted and upgraded to "Gold" standard -- or luxury status. Others, which have yet to be renovated, range from comfortable and ideally located to downright outdated.

To tempt people further, Kapalua has recently announced the completion of a significant portion of the Kapalua Village Walking Trail and Maunalei Arboretum Trail. Winding through the Cook pines and spruce trees of Kapalua, the trails offer a great variety of upcountry foliage, lush jungle flora and gorgeous vistas of West Maui's pineapple plantations and Honolua Bay beyond.

If it weren't enough, Kapalua is tipping the scale by offering hugely discounted rates for rounds of golf at the picturesque courses that wind through the resort. Rates begin at $35 per person for nine holes at The Bay Course, or $88/person for eighteen holes at either The Bay or Plantation courses.

Complimentary ocean conservation tours, Hawaiian cultural art classes, golf clinics, putting green access, tennis and snorkel equipment is also available to all ages.

One, two and three-bedroom villas include fully appointed kitchens, washer/dryers, lanai and access to Kapalua's restaurants (Pineapple Grill, Sansei, etc.) and PGA championship golf courses, as well as a complimentary six-pack of soda or beer, chips and salsa.

Rates start at $199 per night.
