You have the Four Seasons???? Sure, the Four Seasons is on the shore. It'?s for the best? We have several "bests" - because the "best" is the one that meets your specific requirements - even the position on the island. Have a look (besides the Four Seasons) at the Fairmont, the Grand Wailea, a new Hyatt Estate named Anaz.
I' d including the Marriott.... all these are in Wailea - South Maui. There is a Ritz in Kapalua in West Maui, and VERY beautiful Sheraton on Ka'anapali - and also a Hyatt on Ka'anapali. So, think where (on the island) you want to spend the night..... and whatever else you want to do except hanging on the shore.
