The Wailea Beach Marriott Resort and Spa
September 3-10, 2011

  Welcome to the Wailea Marriott!

Infinity pool at the Wailea Marriott.

 First stop, the Kuma Bar for a libation and to watch our first Hawaii sunset -- in a long time.

  And we certainly weren't disappointed. It was just cloudy enough for a spectacular sunset.

 I thought this one told a great story.

View from our deck (Room 4606) the first morning -- serenity (adult) pool below.

The pool from ground level.  Gotta be 18+ -- yea!

  Nancy and Russ enjoying the endless pool.  (I have matching red swim trunks on -- but who cares?)

  Nancy ensconced for the morning by the pool.

  The shops at Wailea Village -- impressive.

 Russ & Nancy at Longhi's in Wailea Village.

  Nancy at Tommy Bahama's in the Shops at Wailea.

  Nancy at Marriott's Maui Ocean Club for a tour.

 Sample of a local Brew "Bikini Blond" in Whalers' Village in Ka'anapali.

  Walking the neighborhood -- this is the lovely Four Seasons Wailea.

  And the Grand Wailea (Hilton - Waldorf Astoria).

  Nancy overlooking Ulua Beach.

  The closed former Renaissance Wailea -- to open as a Hyatt in 2013.

  Wailea Elua Village next door to the Marriott -- nice condo.

  The Marriott from Ulua Beach.

  Time on the deck for wine and cheese at sunset.

  Nancy with the cracker part.

  And the sunset over Lana'i -- worth the wait!  wish we had this view at (either) home!

  Morning at the Serenity Pool -- beautiful!
