Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The beautifully designed, 780-room Grand Wailea is awe-inspiring in its scale: It's got the best pool in Hawaii, one of the top U.S. spas, and a prime location on one of the best U.S. beaches. It's hard even to call the 25,700-square-foot Wailea Canyon Activity Pool complex a "pool." It's more like an aquatic theme park, marked by an exciting water feature at every turn. There is a streaming lazy-river pool, five fun waterslides, whitewater rapids and caves, the world's only "water elevator" -- at the center of a multilevel volcano, you can sit on an inner tube that rises and descends with the water level (which is controlled by an operator), a rope swing, and a swim-up bar at the volcano. There is also a multilevel adults-only pool, two mosaic-tiled whirlpools, and a poolside bistro.

Take a dip in our favorite pools in Maui:
The Travaasa Hana, Maui overlooking Hana Bay delivers rustic luxury in the middle of Maui's lush, secluded east coast. Incredible service, top spa, excellent food, a long list of stuff to do, and only 70 rooms on acres of uncrowded property. There are two pools and a Jacuzzi on property, including a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking Hana Bay.

Reopened in January 2008 after a $180-million renovation, the 463-room Ritz-Carlton Kapalua boasts up-to-date rooms, top-notch dining, a quality spa, polished service, and beautifully landscaped grounds of national park proportions.

Fleming Beach. Wailea's aptly named Fairmont Kea Lani is a "white heaven" indeed -- its 450 units sit on a 22-acre beachfront property that includes four pools, four restaurants and one lounge, access to world-class golf, some of Maui's largest rooms, and a relentless dedication to service that rivals the nearby Four Seasons. The resort centers around the hotel's four well-designed, well-maintained pools. Situated on a rock between two beaches, the 22-acre, 546-room Wailea Marriott has panoramic ocean views and a serene vibe missing from some of the more crowded, neighboring resorts. The good thing about being located on a rock instead of a beach is that all of the hotel's pools have amazing views of the ocean. The children's pool can't compete with the nearby Grand Wailea's complex pool system and myriad water features, but the Marriott's adult-only infinity pool is one of the best pools in Maui.
