Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has announced the completion this month of its $3m renovation of the famed Maile suite, and the introduction of the new Lokelani presidential/residential three-bedroom suites, just in time to welcome summer guests vacationing to this luxury resort in Maui.
With design direction from the internationally-acclaimed BraytonHughes Design Studios, the two Resort suites – the largest on the property and the largest in Hawaii – received a complete re-envisioning. No stranger to Four Seasons Resort Maui, the firm applied their design acumen to previous renovations of the entire Forbes Five Star resort.
Long favorites for discerning guests seeking maximum privacy – everyone from entertainment and music celebrities to affluent families –the two luxury suites have always been known for their posh, yet comfortable island design and décor. Both suites are suitable to host families and small groups requiring multiple bedrooms during their getaway to Maui. While designed differently and located separately within the resort, each suite provides a spectacular and commanding view of the Pacific Ocean.
“For design motif inspiration, we drew upon Hawaii’s rich regal history and the lush beauty of Maui’s colorful flora,” explains Brayton, FAIA, IIDA, principal, BraytonHughes Design Studios. “Richly-designed textiles, case goods, carpets and original art pieces work their collective magic in the Maile Suite.We wanted the Lokelani Suite to take advantage of its lush garden so we filled the interior with brightly colored textiles, lighter woods and decorative lighting and furnishings.”
The design firm is known for itsexacting detail and carefully crafted blending and richness of materials. They have created breathtaking suites that place the accent on the oceanfront setting while providing comfort and the grandeur of a residence.
