BEST MAUI LUXURY VACATION GETAWAY: WAILEA BEACH VILLAS, DESTINATION RESORTS. NANETTE LEPORE DRESS & HAIR FLOWERS.
The places I go inspire the clothes I wear. While in Maui, my personal style took on a Hawaiian flavor. Like MacGyver, I made hair pieces out of fresh local flowers!
I adapted my usual Japanese kawaii makeup for the tropics. The leather skull bracelet is gifted by Good Art — they have a rockin’ collection of USA-made accessories. As for the shell one… you’ll learn about it in an upcoming post!
For the first part of the press trip, my film crew and I stayed at Wailea Beach Villas (Destination Resorts). These were by far the most luxurious accommodations I’ve ever experienced. Our 3-bedroom villa had its own tropical garden and private pool.
My room had a mega walk-in closet and bathroom. As I say in the upcoming video, “The bathtub is large enough to hold a Japanese family, grandparents and all!”
I turned the dining room’s centerpiece into a crown. Don’t the flowers remind you of bunny ears?
The kitchen was fit for a professional.
Chef Joss came and cooked for everyone on the press trip. After goat cheese appetizers, we ate mahi mahi with asparagus, followed by fruit with jalapeno-flavored Greek yogurt.
The resort’s grounds were lush and flowing with waterfalls.
I filmed a segment at the adult-only pool, designed like an oasis. My sandals are by Kenneth Cole (available here.)
Excited to show you the Hawaii travel videos — professionally shot and edited by my talented team.
My only regret is that I didn’t spend more time at the private beach! Thanks to the Wailea Beach Villas team for the warm hospitality. You’ve created a very special place in Maui.
What’s the nicest hotel or resort you’ve ever stayed in? Are you a fan of tropical or beach vacations?
