“This transformation brings new beauty and new energy to our surrounding environment as the entire resort celebrates our unique sense of place,” said Andrew Rogers, general manager at The Ritz-Carlton, Maui, Kapalua. “Our team of talented Hawaii-based architects, designers and builders worked closely with our longtime cultural advisor, Clifford Naeole, to achieve our vision for the future of the resort as a luxury destination.”

The resort’s 10,000-square-foot pool has been reimagined and debuted seven luxury cabanas and beds.
