During our stay here, we bumped into several rich and famous individuals during meals and beach breaks.

It was surreal how everybody just mingled with everybody without a fuss. Even so, we were star-struck and lowkey fangirling on the stars.

The hotel boasts a white fountain pool, green trees, and exquisite 600 square-feet rooms.

The rooms come with free Wi-Fi and cable TV. Fine dining is the order of the day, what with three onsite restaurants.

If you want to run into celebrities while on vacation in Maui, then Mariott’s Maui Ocean Club would be a perfect spot.

This 5-star resort is located at the Kaanapali beach with a perfect view of the Pacific.

While there we opted for the higher floors of the hotel so that we could enjoy an uninterrupted panoramic view of the sunrise.

However, if you want to have easier access to the pools and the beach, then it’s advisable to stay on the lower floors.

The 5-star resort boasts nearby world-class golf courses, such as the Kaanapali Golf Resort, which is only 1.5 km from the hotel. You can also take part in yoga and aerobic classes that are freely offered within the hotel.

You can spend your evenings swimming away in the 3.5-acre pool, which is like no other we’d seen before. Besides that gigantic pool, there are three other heated swimming pools around the hotel.

There are several restaurants where you can choose to dine and wine. The Beach Walk au Kau To Go restaurant has amazing Hawaiian cuisine. The Longhi’s Restaurant also has amazing food.
