The Westin Maui Resort & Spa 

Beachfront family-friendly resort

This large all-frills Westin is very much your typical American holiday resort with the convenience of everything onsite.

Kick back in a beachfront cabana. Gaze at dancing palm trees overhead. Sip a cocktail while scenes of the dramatic West Maui Mountains sit blissfully in the background. Feeling relaxed yet? While children are celebrated with dedicated pools and kids' clubs, The Westin has also got the adults covered. Escape to the adults-only infinity pool and hot tub to catch your breath after a thrilling ride down the water slide. Or embrace your inner child and spend the entire day in the interactive splash zone. The downside of all this is that you might never leave, but when you’re ready to escape, historic Lahaina town is just a ten-minute drive away, and there’s endless activities and sights to see on this beautiful island paradise.
