It could be the view. Or the weather. Or the opulent surroundings. But really, none of those are the reason the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea is a perennial contender for best hotel on earth. What is? The service. From the moment you step out of your vehicle and take the first sip of your complimentary check-in cocktail to the moment you depart, you're treated like royalty — even if a real king and queen are in the room next to you. There's plenty to do, with golf nearby, two swimming pools — including an adults-only infinity pool with a swim-up bar — decadent restaurants, including a fantastic outpost of Spago, and a world-class spa. But with views like these, it's perfectly acceptable to do nothing at all.
