On the grounds of Maui's 1,500-acre Wailea Resort are six world-class hotels, including the 780-room Grand Wailea. In addition to three golf courses (and two more adjacent), the hotel has an amazing pool complex, an extensive spa, and one of the island's best beaches—all of which make it a top choice for families.

The Wailea Golf Club is home to the Blue, Emerald, and Gold courses, all rising as much as 300 feet above sea level in the shadow of the dormant Mount Haleakala
