IMPORTANT (COVID-19) TRAVEL UPDATE
As it has always been, the safety and security of our guests and team members remains our highest priority. As a result, Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, and Ho’olei Villas at Grand Wailea are doing everything we can to ensure your travel safety and provide maximum flexibility as the situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve.
In addition, we are closely monitoring government instructions and guidance in order to identify a reopen date. As such, we are now accepting reservations for stays beginning Tuesday, September 1, 2020 and onward.
Beginning September 1, Travelers to Hawaii who have a valid negative COVID-19 polymerise chain reaction (PCR) test from a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified laboratory 72 hours prior to arriving at Hawaii’s airports will not be subject to the state’s mandatory 14-day quarantine. To be clear, this test result must be confirmed prior to arrival and the passenger must present evidence of this test upon arrival. Individuals will be responsible for the cost of the pre-travel test.
