Where to Go in Hawaii This Spring: Maui

Now is the perfect season to discover what’s new on the islands — here, we visit the top spots on the valley isle.

The Sheraton Maui.





The teeming reef life around Kaanapali’s Black Rock, or Puu Kekaa in Hawaiian, always puts on a colorful variety show for snorkelers, but in early spring, whales add their song to the underwater soundtrack. Not a swimmer? Head here to observe the daily torch lighting and cliff-diving ceremony at sunset.

You can also navigate around Black Rock on a six-person outrigger canoe, Boki Board raft or stand-up paddleboard. Book a 90-minute outing from Hale Huakai, Kaanapali Beach Hotel’s new water activities kiosk. Manager and culturally savvy waterman Kepa Naeole makes sure the friendly staff share his safety first, eco-conscious approach. Canoe snorkel tour, $97–$107; Boki Board snorkel tour, $69; SUP lesson, $87. 


A rainbow of foods at Lineage.



Top Chef fan favorite Sheldon Simeon celebrates both his Filipino heritage and his Hilo upbringing at Lineage, his new restaurant in the Shops at Wailea. A dim sum–style cart offers a rainbow of island snacks, from boiled peanuts to star fruit dusted with li hing mui, while the small-plates menu puts an elegant spin on local favorites such as pork adobo, squid luau, katsu curry (with fried cauliflower) and huli huli chicken. Don’t miss the playful cocktails and desserts. 808.879.8800



After a $26.5 million renovation, Sheraton Maui, a classic Kaanapali resort (built in 1963), is refreshed and ready for even the most discerning guests. Not only has the decor been upped, the malama (love for the land) can be seen throughout the property: reef-safe sunscreen is complimentary, and this is one of the first resorts in the state to ban plastic straws. For a special treat, check out the new signature facial using Ola, a small-batch Hawaiian skin care line.

For those who can never get enough spa time, the new “Wellness Suite” package at Fairmont Kea Lani provides one solution. The package includes spa-style bedding and an aromatherapy shower in an 860-square-foot one-bedroom suite, plus two treatments at Willow Stream Spa and daily use of its facilities, a Knesko gold- or diamond-infused facial mask, massage and stretching kit, daily fitness classes, breakfast buffet and more. From $869 per night (five-night minimum), 866.540.4456
