Globetrotting - Maui

May 16, 2016

We were lucky enough to get invited to an amazing wedding weekend in Maui.  Here are some of our favorite things!

Stay: 

Kapalua Villas (2000 Village Road, Lahaina)

Right between the Montage and the Ritz.  Ask for a Bay Villa to be next to the great little beach and near the pool beside the ocean below Villa 24 and walking distance to the Montage.

Montage Kapalua Bay (1 Bay Drive, Lahaina)

Incredible pool, amazing spa and a gorgeous spot for dinner.


 

Eat: 

Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar (600 Office Road, Lahaina)

Incredible sushi!  Great cocktails!

Plantation House:

Gorgeous views over Kapalua Bay.  Breakfast specialty is Benedicts, mix and match for the best of surf and turf.  Don't forget warm, homemade banana bread and great Hawaiin coffee!

Drink: Mai Thais! 
Do: Snorkeling, Swimming, Surfing.  Boat trips for Whale Sightings (time of year permitting).  Golf & Hiking.  The opportunities for activities are endless on Maui.  We love the road to Hana.  This is a day long trip but you'll pass through cool microclimates, intimate villages and more on the drive.  Stop and grab a coconut by the side of the road to quench your thirst and take the time to drive up to the crater.
Pack:
The Antibes bag is perfect as a carry on and then taking to the beach.  It's woven look makes it ideal for summer but it's made of gorgeous Italian leather, making your vacation extra luxe. 
Malia Mills bathing suits are our absolute favorites!  They're made in NY and made with real women in mind.  Their tops are bra sized and fit incredibly.  Their inspiration is "love thy differences" mixed with a healthy dose of HELL YES!  
Love them!
Cover-ups that double as dresses for a night out are an amazing way to maximize your suitcase.  Go high end with Missoni for the wedding night and gorgeous Indian caftan company Hemant & Nandita for the rehearsal dinner.  Both will look great by the pool, at the beach and out for the night.    
Finally, sandals.  There's no need to pack heels for a beachside wedding in Hawaii.  We love a jeweled flat sandal for the wedding night.  For your other events and daytime, Ancient Greek Sandals are comfortable and easy to slip off for jumping into the ocean or dancing in the sand.  This pair comes in 51 colors so feel free to choose your favorite.
