Travel: Kapalua’s New Landlord
The new Montage Kapalua Bay, on Maui’s west side, beckons with low-key, yet ultra-luxe vacation options. Formerly a Ritz-Carlton, the property recently reopened after being sold and remodeled. Now the Montage’s unique system of hotel rooms and residences lets homeowners rent to travelers through Montage’s residential manager, which means a family can stay in a high-end place like the $8.25-million four-bedroom penthouse, professionally decorated, with all the amenities including 24-hour room service. And right next door are Kapalua’s famed Plantation and Bay courses, home to the PGA’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions, plus mountain and coastal hiking trails on the former third golf course. Aloha!
