You described it well! You will love the open spaces, the whales, and the serenity there. And when you want more "action", it's an easy drive.
Depending on your plans and flight options from PA---you might want to fly into the Kapalua airport (code is JHM). It's 10 minutes from the Ritz.
We have stayed at the Ritz several times.
It is a nice property and the staff was great.
The pool area can get very windy as it faces right into the wind with no protection.
No beach umbrella set up, just a small area on the grass overlooking the beach
We had a big room but a very strange large area with no furniture
Plus it is way up there about as far as some of the places people visit as you can get
I think there are better choices based our stays there and other resorts on Maui.
that’s great to hear!! we have finally decided to stay there for our honeymoon :)
