Spa Spotlight: Four Seasons Maui

If you’ve seen the vacation episode of the wildly popular ABC TV sitcom Modern Family, then you’ve actually already caught a glimpse of the luxurious, award-winning Four Seasons Maui at Wailea. In the “Hawaii” episode, the gang lounges poolside (shot at the not-to-miss, adults-only pool area) and takes part in a wedding ceremony (shot on a manicured lawn overlooking the ocean and three new oceanfront traditional Hawaiian spa hales). What’s only captured in person are the stunning vistas and a very cool swim-up bar, plus fully loaded private cabanas. After my own visit last fall, I can attest, the sunset views in this area (complete with the VIP-feel and kid-free calm) are simply breathtaking. In addition, the standout five-star hotel is now offering innovative wellness-oriented special event weekends.
