Grand Wailea Maui

Maui Strong

Our hearts go out to those touched by the devastating wildfires. We remain grateful that the Wailea region of South Maui was not impacted by the wildfires, and that all of our team members are safe and accounted for.

As we look towards the future of our island, it is more important now than ever that guests continue to visit Maui. Governor Josh Green said: “All other areas of Maui [except Lahaina] and the rest of Hawai‘i are safe and open to visitors, and we continue to welcome and encourage travel to our beautiful state, which will support the local economy and help speed the recovery of those who have already suffered so much.”

Grand Wailea continues to warmly welcome our guests. By visiting Maui and Grand Wailea, you are helping to ensure our island’s community has jobs, shelter, and livelihood.

How to Visit Maui After the Wildfires

If you have an upcoming reservation with us or are planning a stay in the near future, we understand that you may have a few questions about how you can visit Grand Wailea in the wake of the devastating wildfires that swept through Lahaina and West Maui. Outside of these areas, the rest of Maui has not been directly impacted by the fires and continues to welcome guests.

travel agency owners visit Grand Wailea

Signature Travel Network is pleased to be in Maui

"There was no other choice than to show up and be here," Signature Travel Network president and CEO Alex Sharpe said on stage.

Grand Wailea held STN's annual Owner's Meeting following the devastating wildfires that engulfed Lahaina last month, but Signature made the decision to go forward with it. 

That story was loud and clear, he said: Maui is open and needs tourists.

STN's Recovery Efforts

During their event, the group held a silent auction where funds and donations would all benefit local groups helping the recovery. Attendees were encouraged to pack needed supplies to donate. And, Signature made Saturday a day of service.

  • More than 7,000 pounds of supplies were donated
  • Over $400,000 in donations was raised
  • Thousands of meals were prepared on site to go to those affected
  • And more


“I'm in Maui. And I'm glad I came.”

Signature Travel Network attendee, Jaime Biesiada writes:

Right now, Maui needs tourism dollars more than ever. Outside of affected areas, the island is well: travel advisors, don't discourage your clients from visiting. Encourage them to travel here, responsibly, outside of affected areas where recovery operations are ongoing.

Clients are probably hesitant to visit Maui right now. But it's up to the industry to redirect commercial traffic here. Please defer to local operators, who share the united voice that Maui is open for business. Help make it happen.
