The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua located on the white sandy beaches of Kapalua, Maui will be home to the Aloha Writers Conference 2013. “Arms embracing the sea” is a loose translation of the Hawaiian word, “Kapalua.” It is intended to describe the resort’s lava peninsulas that stretch their arms into the turquoise waters, hugging them in such a way as to create five bays.
Inland, verdant rainforests, the protected marine life conservation district, an ancient Hawaiian burial ground, and golf courses that double as wildlife sanctuaries make this area unique in the world.
Kapalua is home to an astonishing number of flowers and trees, planted by ancestral Polynesians and Hawaiians, such as lychee, flowering ginger, and ti leaf plants. Whether your idea of vacation is learning about natural history or lounging by the shore, this world-renowned Maui hotel is sure to delight.
This five star-star hotel is offering a special guest rate to conference attendees starting at $245.00 per night for a deluxe non-ocean view room, $285.00 for a deluxe ocean view room, and $285.00 for a residential garden view suite.
