The covered Pavilion is brand new (Feb 2020) and includes an exercise room and group event facilities.
The resort has private gated access to and from poolside and the world renowned Keawakapu Beach.
You can enjoy great snorkelling and all the fun beach activities just a few steps away. You can also explore the incredible beachfront walks and scenery in either direction. A very cool thing to do is the Wailea waterfront beach walk along the beachfront resort pathway / beach stroll, (walking or jogging) heading south for over a mile of sandy beaches, 5 star resorts cozy coves, dormant volcanic flow features and spectacular ocean views. Heading north from the beach gate is a wonderful 1 kilometre long sandy beach ending at the Manakai hotel resort and the 5 Palms restaurant / bar. (our favorite)
On site there are 3 other quiet pools with private lounging decks. The quiet pools are normally for adults and are located throughout the resort. The lower village quiet pool is just a 1 minute easy walk from our suite.
Note - The main beachside pool pavilion has been completely re built in 2019. All new furnishings and modern decor, barbeques and great atmosphere to enjoy at poolside.
Shopping and dining nearby
Within comfortable walking distance from the resort are the elegant "Shops at Wailea" and a selection of fine dining and casual restaurants and bars. Ekahi is just a short drive from the Pilani Hwy and from the many shops, activity centres, beaches and restaurants of South Kihei.
The two Wailea golf courses are just above the resort and it is a ten to fifteen minute drive to Makena - Big beach and the spectacular dormant lava flow fields and snorkelling at Turtle Bay.
The Ekahi resort spreads up and out from the main pool area in benches developed in 3 phases.
The lower village units are the most popular as they provide quick and easy walking access to the beach and the main guest pool area. The upper and mid village units have steeper slopes and longer walks.
The units to the north (including our unit) can have a some road noise at times when the lanai doors and windows are open. However Maui shuts down around 9:00 pm and when the sliding lanai doors are closed there is very little noise.
