Back in the 808: Botero Bar at the Grand Wailea

April 20, 2012

Our dear friends Elisa and Matt were on Maui while we were on Oahu and since our trips overlapped, we decided to hop over to see them.  It was Matt’s first time to the islands so we had all sorts of advice to offer on where to go and what to see… and of course what to eat.

We didn’t do any of that though.  There was no drive to Hana, no viewing of the sunrise or sunset at Haleakala Crater, and believe it or not, we hardly had any beach time either.  Elisa’s Dad was at a conference at the Grand Wailea on Maui and we spent a majority of our time living it up in the hotel pool.  It’s not just any ordinary hotel pool though.  There were multiple pools that were connected by a river to carry swimmers at various speeds.  The pools boasted of water slides, jacuzzis, a water elevator, swim up bar and more.

Our first night on Maui, we started things off right by going to the Botero Bar at the Grand Wailea.  (Side note, Botero Bar is not half as fun to say as the Humuhumunukunukuapua’a Bar they have there.  That is the name of the state fish of Hawaii.)  We sipped on Bikini Blondes and Molokini Sunset cocktails… our vacation had truly begun!
