Hotel News: The much anticipated $9 million Serenity Pool, which opened on July 13, 2009 at the beautiful Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, has been named one of the Must-See Hotel Pools of Summer 2009 by HotelChatter.com. This most exclusive saline pool, located in the new 4100-square foot Serenity Pool Terrace, is tucked alongside the southern-most oceanfront edge of the Resort in the area formerly known as Seasons Lawn.
From the Serenity Pool, guests enjoy elevated panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the Island of Lanai and the West Maui Mountain range. The location offers the perfect reprieve for those in search of a quiet retreat, while still close to the main Fountain Pool and just steps away from breathtaking Wailea Beach.

Based on their responses, the Serenity Pool was born. It has been thoughtfully designed for the sophisticated traveler searching for the utmost in comfort and relaxation, while being pampered in a rejuvenating oasis."
