Reviewed by Dale Leatherman

In 2006, the five-star Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua was ranked the No. 1 golf resort in Hawaii by Travel+Leisure Golf. It's even more appealing today after a $180 million renovation in 2008 that remodeled rooms and suites and added a luxurious spa, fitness center, children's pool, and poolside cabanas. Set in 54 oceanfront acres, the resort is part of the 22,000-acre Kapalua Resort, a master-planned community with two nature preserves, pineapple fields, and two championship golf courses.
