Ulana - Mornings are both bright and indulgent at this breakfast-only restaurant overlooking the gardens, pool, and ocean. The varied buffet features an omelet station, rotation of local specialties, and Bloody Mary bar.

Burger Shack - Burger Shack is a casual, oceanfront hideaway where guests can savor signature burgers, whimsical shakes, a selection of featured cocktails, and craft and local beer. This alfresco dining venue is the ideal spot to enjoy a meal or cocktails, while contemplating the waves, surfers and sometimes the whales. These delicious bites can be enjoyed at the restaurant under a natural canopy of more than 40 fully-grown coconut palms or can be packaged in a beach-friendly to-go kit.

Alaloa Lounge - This lounge offers an extensive menu of specialty cocktails, domestic and imported beers, premium spirits, signature appetizers, light fare, and desserts. With its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, The Alaloa Lounge is the place to view the Maui landscape, enjoy an informal lunch or, December-April, enjoy whale-watching.

Nearby Things to Do

For the golf enthusiast, walk in the footsteps of legends at the annual home of the PGA TOUR's season-opening Tournament of Champions when you visit our Maui golf resort in Hawaii. Set amid a 23,000-acre historic pineapple plantation, Kapalua’s Plantation Course and Bay Course offer 2 18-hole golf experiences, each with distinct character, challenges and incredible views.

Snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and variety of other water sports are available at any of the local beaches in the area:


D.T. Fleming Beach - This long, golden sand beach fronting The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua is perfect for running and sunning. Winter swells make this a popular location for boogie boarding and surfing.

Honolua Bay and Mokule`ia Bay - Located just north of the property. Since 1978, the area has been protected by the State of Hawaii as Marine Conservation Districts. Beneath the waves, submerged gardens of coral house an abundance of marine life.



Honolua Bay is an excellent location for summer snorkeling, but due to the large swells that attract top surfers from around the world, this should not be attempted during winter months



Kapalua Bay – With gentle breaking waves above and vibrant marine life below, Kapalua Bay offers a sheltered sanctuary for exploring the wonders of the ocean.



Oneloa Bay – A favorite for locals seeking its secluded setting and fast-breaking winter surf. For those not desiring to get wet, the Kapalua Coastal Trail runs along the beach’s sand dunes.

This program offers a range of environmental activities for guests of all ages with trained naturalists, including, Cities Under The Sea, Adventures in Nature, Underwater Photography, Marine Debris to Artistry and Turtle Tracks. Adults and families can enjoy guided hikes, whale-watching excursions and underwater photography snorkeling sessions.

This program also seeks to inspire guests to live a more sustainable life and to gain a greater understanding of the relationships between land to sea, humans to nature, people to people and present to future. According to Jean-Michel Cousteau, “We expect everyone, by learning more about our natural world and their places within it, to return to their communities as environmental stewards or ambassadors of the environment.”
