The all-suite Hotel Wailea Maui announced the availability of two ‘active-sports’ packages at the all-suite resort.

“Kiteboarding Adventure”
This exciting water sport special includes private lessons at popular Kanaha Beach Park on Maui’s north shore with one of the island’s finest kiteboarding schools.  All of the necessary equipment and gear is included for the three-hour kiteboarding adventure. With the individual attention offered, no prior experience is required to master the kite and board as it pulls the rider over the ocean by the sheer force of Maui’s tradewinds.  Included in this special are:

•    Three-day Kiteboarding Camp (total 10 hours) with Maui’s premier kiteboarding school
•    One-hour massage (to ease those sore muscles)
•    10% discount on the purchase of any new kiteboarding equipment
•    Five-nights in a deluxe suite

Kiteboarding is very similar to kitesurfing where the winds propel riders across the water.  The very basic differences between the two sports are the type of board and performance kite used.  Maui is an excellent place for both of these water activities.  The tradewinds at Kanaha and Hookipa beaches are well-known for providing thrilling rides.

The Kiteboarding Adventure starts at $1295 per person, based on double occupancy.  For more information, contact the Hotel Wailea Maui kiteboarding specialist at

“Family Paddleboarding Package”

The latest craze in water sports is stand-up paddle surfing or ‘paddleboarding’ and Hotel Wailea Maui has jumped on its popularity by offering a special that is perfect for trying while visiting Maui and great for the entire family.

This is an opportunity for the family to get into the warm Pacific Ocean and learn a sport that is a reincarnation of an ancient Hawaiian form of surfing.  Paddleboarding is somewhat easy for all family members to master but the active sports enthusiasts in the group will also find that the core workout it offers is awesome.”

What’s included:
•    3-hour Family Paddleboard Day Camp with private instruction
•    Family dinner at Matteo’s Pizzeria in Wailea
•    Visit to Maui Ocean Center – Maui’s top rated family activity
•    Five-nights in an oceanview suite

Price starts from $995 per person, based on double occupancy. Kids 17 years and younger can share parents’ room, using existing bedding, at no charge.  For more information, contact the in-house paddleboard specialist at

Hotel Wailea is located in the luxury resort community of Wailea Maui.  For reservations, contact the hotel specialist Markus at 808-874-0500 or or
