Traveling to Maui in October

My husband and I are traveling to Maui n October (first Hawaii trip). We love and have stayed at four seasons hotels but looking to pay a bit less for this trip

The RItz Carlton looks great but worried about the weather late October and the distance from everything

There are lots more upscale resorts in the Wailea area besides Four Seasons. You can also look into The Fairmont Kea Lani, Wailea Beach Marriott, Hotel Wailea.

There is also The Makena Beach and Golf Resort in Makena, just a bit south of the Four Seasons. The Makena resort is a nice and peaceful resort, on a very nice beach, great for snorkeling. This resort is fairly inexpensive (comparing to the Four Seasons).

Ritz Carlton in October sounds great. About 15 minutes from Lahaina. Not really isolated - but not as walkable as Ka'anapali.

On Ka'anapali Beach (also West Maui) check out the Sheraton and the Hyatt. (For couples, I would recommend the Sheraton.)

Below is a link to a website that will show you aerial views. I generally disregard the commentary. Scroll down and click on the properties that interest you.

Late October is pushing it for great weather in Kapalua. Weather and ocean conditions will be changing over to winter conditions in October. I'd stay at least south of Kahana on the west side of Maui, better yet, would be south Maui. Check out the Makena Beach and Golf Resort.
