Four more pools can be found on property including the signature adults only Serenity Pool with floating cabanas, in-pool snack service, full bar meal service and an onsite dive pool, created exclusively for certification.
Every age group has been considered in this rebuild from the Kolohe Kids Center (kohole means rascal in Hawaiian), The Movie House, featuring family friendly films (allowing just enough time for mom and dad to enjoy dinner) to the multi-generational Game Space featuring pool, shuffleboard, X-box stations, classic arcade games and fuse ball.

Pool: Wailea Beach Resort takes advantage of its 22 acres by creating three very distinct pool experiences, allowing guests to choose their own space for relaxation, rejuvenation and/or exhilaration.
NALU Adventure Pool: The new expansive two-acre pool complex offers a fun-filled experience for families and kids of all ages. The centerpiece of the NALU Adventure Pool is four water slides, two of which measure 240ft and 325ft respectively, with the latter dropping five and half stories and measuring as the longest water slide of any resort in Hawaii. A new interactive splash zone, with water guns, spraying sea mammal sculptures and bubblers, create a wonderful playtime for all. Parents can enjoy a moment to themselves in the pool’s new swim-through grotto or under spacious family cabanas.
Maluhia Serenity Pool: The signature adults-only infinity edge pool features over-water private cabanas, casabellas for two and luxury chaise lounges. The iconic space holds multi-level pool decks and presents unobstructed panoramic views of the Pacific.
‘Ohi Pools: The resort’s two new oceanfront pools offer an additional vantage point to enjoy the spectacular views of the Pacific. Perfect for whale watching, the dramatic infinity edge is steps from the ocean, so close guests greet the water’s mist as waves meet the coastline. Two whirlpool spas provide further relaxation. Numerous ocean view cabanas surround the pools and present an ideal way to reconnect with the water.
Dive Pool: A distinct space for scuba certification, diving, snorkeling and other watersports instruction, the Dive Pool is part of the NALU Adventure Pool complex.
Beach: As the first resort built in Wailea the original developers chose this prime position between Wailea and Elua Beaches, both white sand beaches with gentle surf. The hotel provides beach service on Wailea beach including chairs, towels and umbrellas as well as snorkel equipment to rent. Activities such as outrigger, surf and stand up paddle boards are also available through the concierge.
