This was a wonderful experience to stay three nights in the historic wing with great garden views. The rooms were quiet and peaceful. Breakfast was very busy leading up to Christmas day, so rise early to secure an immediate table. The lunch menu at the Mai Tai bar was especially good, washed down with amazing cocktails. Staff were attentive and...

The 'pink palace' is in itself a worthy experience; so don't even think of going for the new tower rooms. They are nice, in fact a carbon copy of the Westin Maui's new tower rooms, which are also very nice. But if you have a soul, you'll want to nourish it with the 100 year character of the original building....
