Makena Beach & Golf Resort

Wailea-Makena, Hawaii

By Roger Cox, Editor

The Makena Golf & Beach Resort to close July 1 (see Maui News).

The Makena Beach & Golf Resort (formerly the Maui Prince Hotel) sits a little behind a ¼-mile stretch of white sand in Makena Resort, just south of Wailea. Unlike its neighbor, however, Makena is far less Makena Beach & Golf Resortdeveloped, with only a single, 310-room hotel and much more space left open and untouched. Tucked into its 1,800 acres is the winsome Makena Tennis Club, a lively and recently renovated enclave of activity a shuttle ride from the hotel and its two swimming pools, four restaurants and lounges, day spa, and fitness center.

The courts, all hard, are laid out in pairs below a raised pro shop and have wooden fence posts, black windscreens, borders of tropical trees Frank Salvador, Makena Beach & Golf Resort, Maui, Hawaiiand flowers, and views of the golf course and water. They sit behind an oceanside berm that funnels winds upward, fluttering the fronds of the palm trees but arcing over the courts themselves. A trellised veranda off the full-service pro shop provides a place to enjoy, beer, wine, or other beverages and the on-court activity, while lights allow play until as late as 9 p.m. Frank Salvador, who has more than 20 years experience (most recently at the Hyatt Regency Maui), directs the programs. He runs daily clinics and junior programs, supplemented Davis Cup drill clinics for 4.0+ players and by weekly and monthly Round Robin mixers, which draw players from all over the island, as well as tournaments and league matches at various times of the year. The pro shop staff, meanwhile, provides such services as studious game matching and towels. Court fees are $24/hour for hotel guests.
