Hawaii Revisited-My Last Day on Maui

A tour of the Hyatt and Ritz Carlton resorts round out my Maui Visit

My last day on Maui began early with breakfast and a tour of the Hyatt Regency Maui. Upon arrival at the resort, the Manager of the property greeted us and ushered our group to a breakfast buffet set up by the pool and the beach. The Hyatt is another beautiful resort on Maui. There are over 800 guest rooms with Private Lanai and stunning views of mountains or ocean. The beach front resort has numerous pools, a luxurious Spa, 4 restaurants and 5 lounges. Seating ourselves at beautifully decorated tables with umbrellas to protect us from the morning sun, we relaxed and enjoyed our breakfast before going on an extensive walking tour. The food was plentiful and delicious and the mimosas and smoothies put all of us in a great mood!
After breakfast, we began our tour.

After our tour of the Hyatt we headed back to the Sheraton for an educational session presented by the Kauai Convention and Visitor's Bureau. I would be headed to Kauai the next day with a few of the other planners. The rest of the morning was spent talking one on one with resort representatives before traveling over to the Ritz Carlton Resort for lunch and a tour of that property.

The Ritz Carlton is located in the Kapalua area on the western edge of Maui. This AAA Five-Diamond 463-room hotel is truly amazing with exquisite ocean views that overlook the neighboring islands of Moloka‘i and Lana‘i. We were guided around the resort by the sales staff before sitting down to lunch and a cultural presentation. I must say that the Ritz Carlton was really amazingly beautiful.

With lunch and the tour of the Ritz Carlton behind us, we headed back to the Sheraton to pack up and relax before dinner. I was pretty tired by this time, but I had enjoyed the tours, the food and the day. The first hand education that I had received on Maui from our hosts would be invaluable to me as a travel consultant. I loved the idea that I could tell future clients that I had actually seen and experienced so much on the island. Dinner was a relaxed and fun affair at a restaurant in Lahaina. Our group sat at a large table watching the sunset while eating local specialties and enjoying tropical drinks. At 10:00pm we arrived back at our hotel, taking the time to trade business cards and phone numbers. Our group would now be splitting up, with some planners going to the Big Island for a few days while the rest of us traveled to the island of Kauai the next day.

I absolutely loved the island of Maui. I cannot wait to return. The island of Kauai was next on the agenda and I was more than a little excited to see what that experience would bring. Next up, I arrive on the island of Kauai and get my first taste of an Hawaiian Loco Moco!
