Condé Nast Traveler has announced the results of its 27th annual Readers’ Choice Awards with Hotel Wailea recognized as the #2 Best Hotel in Hawaii. A former private members club previously unknown to leisure travelers, Hotel Wailea recently unveiled a $15 million makeover and ushers in a new generation of luxury guests seeking the romance and tranquility of ultra-private suites, coupled with gracious island service.

The epitome of a romantic sanctuary, Hotel Wailea is set across 15 expansive acres with 72 spacious suites that offer perfect privacy and stunning views of lush gardens, three neighboring Hawaiian islands and the magnificent Maui coastline. The boutique hotel boasts a relaxed beach house design in all 72 one-bedroom suites, a new pool with private residential-style cabanas and an orchard-to-glass apothecary bar. The hotel’s award-winning restaurant Capische? blends Southern Mediterranean flavors and artisanal Hawaiian products sourced from the hotel’s own farm and neighboring purveyors.
The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.” Under Editor in Chief Pilar Guzmán, the Readers’ Choice Awards have become more selective and specific to the passions that inspire today’s travelers.
This year, Condé Nast Traveler introduced two new categories: Hall of Famers, iconic properties that debuted in the first Readers’ Choice Awards; and The Newcomers and The Comebacks, new and recently refreshed properties that are destined to become future classics.
The Readers’ Choice Awards are announced in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler, on newsstands nationwide on October 28, 2014. The full list is published exclusively online, at http://www.CNTraveler.com/rca.
