Grand Wailea Blog

Aloha and e komo mai (welcome) to the Grand Wailea blog! This is a place where we’ll tell memorable stories and share notable news about our resort, our people, our island home, and the wonderful community around us.

Breathing New Life into ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i (Hawaiian Language)

In 2012, the Hawai‘i State Legislature issued a statute that reads as follows: “E ‘ike mau a e kapa ‘ia ana a‘e ka mahina ‘o Pepeluali ‘o ia ka ‘Mahina ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i’ i mea e ho‘omaika‘i a e paipai aku ai i ka ‘ōlelo ‘ana o ua ‘ōlelo makuahine nei lā.”

Or, in English: “The month of February shall be known and designated as ‘‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i Month’ to celebrate and encourage the use of Hawaiian language.”

A Vacation that Allows You to Mālama (Give Back) 

We believe that all of this—everything you see and feel—must be cherished and celebrated, and we invite all our guests to join us in honoring the people and 'āina of Maui by giving something back. 

Awaken and Arise with the Perfect Start to the Day

Discover the magic and history of Grand Wailea’s e ala e experience, a rejuvenating and inspiring wellness experience that allows you to learn a simple Hawaiian oli (chant) and enter the ocean to release the past and all of life’s stresses. Emerging from the ocean renewed, welcome the rising sun with a rousing “E Ala E” chant that creates life energy for the day ahead.
