Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa, located on 23 oceanfront acres at Pu‘u Keka‘a (Black Rock) on Ka‘anapali Beach, has updated its lobby as the second phase of the resort’s renovation, following a complete refresh of all guestrooms last year.
Following the redesign, the resort now has a 4,223-square-foot space with an open concept floor plan to bring the outdoors in with a lanai and viewing deck overlooking Ka‘anapali Beach. The new lobby bar and café will be the epicenter of the resort’s gathering space.
The adjacent lobby lounge has communal seating for socializing, a new lobby bar and café and a family game room.
Conceptualized by AHL, formally Architects Hawaii Limited, the transformation will create a central gathering place for guests to socialize and relax. The design will blend shades of blue, gray and tan with textural accents of wood and rock to play off the island’s natural environment.
On the lower lobby level, the resort is adding a new game room, where guests can watch movies and play games.
In July 2018, Sheraton Maui Resort completed a $26.5 million renovation of its 508 guestrooms and suites, 83 %of which with an ocean view. The new guestroom design blends past with present, honoring the history and sense of place found at Pu‘u Keka‘a while modernizing the living and bathroom spaces with new furnishings, textiles, décor and artwork curated by native Hawaii artist Kristie Fujiyama Kosmides. Colors and textures utilized throughout the resort’s six buildings are inspired by the culture and island landscapes of Maui, Lanai and Molokai.
Tetsuji Yamazaki is the general manager of the property.
