Pool Fun for All
Fronting famed Ka’anapali Beach with year-round sunshine and tropical breezes, The Westin Maui Resort & Spa is the place to celebrate a fun vacation in Hawaii.
Fresh from a multi-million dollar reinvestment that included new guestrooms and suites, this beachfront resort abounds with ways to rejuvenate.
A key feature is its magnificent aquatic playground with five outdoor pools and cascading waterfalls, a free-form Jacuzzi, two exciting water slides, a swim-through grotto and hidden whirlpool.
Recognized by TripAdvisor readers as one of the Top Ten Jaw Dropping pools worldwide, the 87,000 square-foot of splashing paradise is surrounded by acres of lush landscaped gardens.
While kids and teens go wild over the resort’s family-friendly pools including the 128-foot drop water slide, couples seeking cozy downtime can unwind at the adults’ only pool or reserve spacious pool gazebos with thirst-quenching refreshments.
Named after the Hawaiian Islands, each of the three-tiered pools present a distinctive experience. At beach level are the inter-connecting pools of Maui and Molokai with aquatic fun such as water basketball, water volleyball and even aquacise for fitness enthusiasts.
The close proximity of these pools to Relish Burger Bistro and Relish Bar make them ideal for poolside meals as well as tropical cocktails and beers. At mid-level, the pools of Kauai and Lanai inter-connect through a swim-through grotto hidden by waterfalls.
These pools are ideal to enjoy views of the neighboring islands and are mere steps away from the shimmering Pacific Ocean.
There are ample pool deck chairs as well as pool cabanas for two and spacious gazebos for group get-togethers and additional privacy.
Nearby is Seadogs snack shop serving cool and refreshing snow cones with multi-flavors, popcorns and more.
At the uppermost level is the Oahu serenity pool situated 40 feet above the beach.
Reserved for adults and teens ages 16 and above, this pool area provides panoramic vistas of the warm Pacific and the islands of Lanai and Molokai.
Two pool gazebos offer couples an intimate setting to enjoy a day in sunny Maui or indulge in a spectacular sunset dinner for two, with personalized service.
There are also three newly-introduced cozy pool cabanas for two, in addition to comfortable pool deck chairs.
Completing the offerings are a free form adults-only Jacuzzi as well as a Beach Bar serving delightful appetizers and innovative cocktails.
The adult pool holds approximately 100,000 gallons of water and is surrounded by cascading waterfalls and exotic botanicals.
Brief descriptions are noted within its scenic gardens to identify native Hawaiian plants and others introduced by Polynesian voyagers.
It certainly lends a distinctive feature to the resort’s pool surroundings, providing guests a cultural experience through its landscaped features.
For a unique wedding experience, couples are invited to take the plunge by booking the “Splash into a New Beginning” wedding ceremony held atop the thrilling water slide.
