I am sure you can, as non-guest could always go to their restaurants to have a meal or, coffee...
Of course! Go and look around, they want you to check them out, eat and drink at the resaurants and bars just don't randomly jump in the pools!
last I heard they are actually in the process of condominium-izing the Hotel Wailea (as vacation rentals, I believe). ask the concierge, you may even be able to look at different rooms.
mauioceanview is correct- all rooms are being converted to condo-tel-style, individually-owned units, which the owner may then rent to vacation travelers. Prices currently range from $650k - $800k -- seemingly not a bad deal ... until one factors in the AOAO fees of $1800/mo, which works out to ~$60/daily..
The hotel will supposedly continue renting rooms until the conversions are all complete, and the Hansen Ohana is handling all of the unit sales, so I'm certain they'd also be tickled to show you one or several completed units, along with a complete tour of the grounds.. ;) Link:
Isn't Capishe? (restaurant) at the Hotel Wailea? I am not sure what kind of restrictions there would be while the property reinvents inself into condos - or even if that has started. But if Capishe? (a very popular restaurant) is open ... sure ... they would love to have the general public!
A number of units are already complete, Betty Lou - the link above lists several for sale along with prices..
Capische? remains unaffected (perhaps with the exception of a bit of extra noise & some dust during the daylight hours..) so yes, that would be an additional excuse to peruse the property's grounds..
