My first 3 Destination Maui posts were about the orginial “resort” area of Maui, now to what some consider the “Gold Coast” of Maui, the south end of the island. Wailea is all about the white sandy beaches and the calm waters, it is drier than the West side, so you don’t have to worry about thoes afternoon showers. My first stop is the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort and Spa. What I love about this hotel is that one of the ceremony locations is literally at the ocean, this is one of the closes spots to the ocean. Another option for a smaller ceremony and small dinner reception is this great patio. Finally one of my favorite spots for a reception would be this rooftop. Imagine a great lounge area over looking the ocean!
