Hale Ali’i Kapalua, crown jewel and one of only five exclusive beachfront estates in all of Kapalua, encapsulates the rarefied tranquility and splendor of Maui. Gates admit you into a sun-kissed tropical world blessed by experts for “the feng shui of its design and its optimistic flow of energy.” Comprising close to 10,000 square feet under roof, its myriad beachfront settings revel in spectacular panoramas of Molokai, humpback whales, dolphins, and magical sunsets. Gardens of plumeria and gardenias perfume the air. Entertainment expanses dazzle with high drama. Pampering suites enwrap you in serene luxury. Resortlike poolside venues echo those of nearby Kapalua Resort’s Ritz-Carlton. To be sure, Number 9 Kapalua Place—the number reserved for the Emperor of China and synonymous with harmony—is an international treasure. Furnished.
