A resort with GOLF LIKE grounds. Amazing lush green grass, perfect for kids to run around, cart-wheel or just relax in the hammock!

The Ritz Carlton in Maui is the perfect resort to host the Xterra Worlds off-road triathlon and a fantastic place to holiday. Generally, this resort comes at a very expensive price tag, but during the race period, they offer an amazing discount. A perfect opportunity to visit. Enjoy the race festivities, sparkling crystal clear waters, and the abundant sea life including the giant turtles. And if time permits you must visit Maui’s Garden of Eden Botanical Arboretum, popular for its début in Jurassic Park.

Not a bad view! 2 pools one for the kids with a cute little waterfall, and the another; very large for everyone else.

Car hire is essential. Everyone needs to get out as explore the island. The town, Lahaina, is the largest in West Maui. Lahaina’s center of activity is along the Front Street, loads of restaurants, galleries, and little shops. Much cheaper than in the resorts.
