Makena is a small community on Maui’s south shore, located south of Kihei and Wailea. It is as far south as one can go by car before the road ends. Makena State Park and several nice beach parks make up a large portion of Makena, including Makena Beach (also known as Big Beach), Little Beach and Maluaka Beach, among others.
Makena is a favored destination for the world’s most affluent. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Wailea resort, homes and condos in Makena are treated to a slightly quieter atmosphere and enjoy a stunning coastline with beautiful white-sand beaches. Makena has a more serene and private setting but it is close enough to Wailea Resort for its residents and visitors to enjoy the resort’s amenities. Makena has some of the most sought after properties in Hawaii.
Let’s take a look at three (3) oceanfront luxury condo resorts in Makena:
1. Polo Beach Club
This unique 8 story resort is literally steps away from the Polo Beach . A parking garage, spacious lawn and oceanfront pool complete the setting which marks the end of the Wailea ocean front walk. All units offer 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The units on the south side add pool views and are protected from most of the seasonal winds. The Fairmont Kea Lani Resort Hotel is adjacent.
