Kapalua Resort. The resort is lined with century-old Cook pines and surrounded

the top of Puu Kukui Preserve, the highest peak in the West Maui Mountains,
to the edge of the Pacific Ocean adjacent to the Honolua Bay Marine Life Conservation
District. The resort is renowned for its three championship golf courses; a full-service
tennis complex managed by Peter Burwash International; ten residential communities;
two premier hotels; condominium vacation rentals; three white sand beaches; and
