Ok, the Residence ruined it for me. I will no longer stay anywhere else when I come to Maui. I have been to this island about 20 times over the past 20 years for work and once for pleasure. I have stayed in condos, hotels and this was by far my best place to stay. We had the three room villa and had a fantastic time. The place is under renovation but they were not working during our stay even though we were advised that they would be working. My staff arrived a day before I did and I had them stay in Lahaina at a resort. They were fine with the experience but were overwhelmed when I brought them to this place for the rest of our stay.
Rob, the valet guy to Kristen in reservations, the service was great, worthy of me sharing in my presentations (I am a leadership expert/keynoter) with groups. The weather was spotty but the accommodations made up for the off / on sun poking out. In fact, the staff would have stayed in the room if I did not force them to go out and see the island. Being from the West coast, it was great to rise early, sip coffee while sitting on the lanai watching the ocean.
The kitchen allowed me to cook the final night dinner for my staff (5) and the 3 friends who were on the island at the same time. The cleanliness, locale, and the staff were wonderful. If you have been to Hawaii, you knew that you can find " dated" and underwhelming places to stay... this is not one of them. It may be a bit pricier but at this stage in my life, I am worth it, have had my share of budget rooms and if I am going to fly my staff over we should enjoy the place where we are laying our heads down at night. I know this is becoming a Montage property so it is only going to get better. My biggest challenge was getting the Bose sound system to work. Life should be so rough.
Thanks for the great experience and I look forward to returning a lot sooner than I had planned. Kudos to all.
