Wimberly Interiors completes human-centered redesign of Four Seasons Resort Maui

The redesign, started in in December 2014, was a collaboration between the original architect of the resort, Wimberly Interiors, and Four Seasons hoteliers.

Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has completed the floor-to-ceiling renovation of its guestrooms and suites. The two-year "human-centered" redesign—launched in December 2014—was a collaboration between the original architect of the resort, Wimberly Interiors, and Four Seasons hoteliers.

The "bulky" furniture were replaced with sleeker design elements. Dressers were moved from the main room into a bathroom nook, transforming the space into a dressing room. Rooms now have both a table that can be used for work or dining as well as a shelving unit. A full-size sectional sofa pulls out into a queen-size bed. Private lanais extend the living space outdoors. At the center of every room is the Four Seasons bed, which has wall-mounted bedside lamps and personal reading lights integrated into the headboard. Rooms also have graphic textiles by Eskayel Design. Meanwhile, the resort's art curator Julie Cline introduced new contemporary artwork of Hawaiian art collection.

Twenty-one “Ocean Front Suites” now have configurations of one-, two-, three- and four bedroom floor plans, some of which are further separated from the rest of the resort with an antechamber.

The property also renovated the poolside cabanas and chaise lounges, while the resort's hillside oceanfront sanctuaries were redesigned to incorporate the landscape and to offer more privacy. 

Spaces for events were added, including two new lawns that offer oceanfront views near Wailea Beach.
