Highlighting the Andaz Maui and the Fairmont Kea Lani

Ventura Blvd has recently featured the Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort and the Fairmont Kea Lani. This publication is written for the luxury traveler and families alike. Here’s a little bit of what they discovered here in Wailea.

Wailea is also known for its pretty, soft-sand beaches free of rock and coral, and stunning views of the islands of Kaho’olawe and Lanai as well as the West Maui Mountains. Its five resorts are connected by a lushly landscaped, 1.6-mile oceanfront walkway, one of my favorite things about Wailea. It’s awesome for a brisk morning walk or jog, and ideal for an after-dinner stroll.
