MAUI, HI – As Hawaii safely reopens to travelers this month, Maui’s newest luxury residential development, La’i Loa in Wailea, is now officially open for sales with the first release of homes already 60% sold to buyers who purchased virtually during the recent travel restriction period.
La’i Loa, the first release within the master planned Wailea Hills Collection that was announced earlier this year, is a 13-acre community that consists of 75 condominium residences spread across 15 impeccably-designed, boutique-sized buildings. Thoughtfully placed to maximize views, buildings are orientated along six lushly landscaped terraces, descending towards the ocean, allowing for an unprecedented connection to the spectacular Wailea landscape and views of Molokini, Kaho’olawe, Lana’i and the West Maui mountains.
With travel restrictions making it difficult to physically visit Maui since March, developer Ledcor Development, quickly shifted its focus to accommodate prospective buyers who had continued interest in resort home opportunities in Wailea. The result was a highly detailed virtual tour that allows buyers to explore the community via a 360-degree walkthrough of each of the three residence types, plus it showcases the overall property, amenity spaces and a 180-degree video of the views from the lanai of all 75 residences.
“These past few months have been difficult for everyone on so many levels and we are grateful for the ability to welcome back travelers to the island who have a newfound appreciation for the natural beauty of the spectacular Wailea landscape,” said Paul Woodward, senior vice president for Ledcor Development. “As the only luxury residential development on the horizon for Wailea, we have seen strong demand from prospective buyers looking for new construction and contemporary design. With above-it-all views and timeless architecture set in a lush Hawaiian landscape, La’i Loa captures the quintessential casual island lifestyle. There has never been anything like this on Maui.”
La’i Loa buyers can choose from a premium selection of spacious two- and three-bedroom, single-level villas, featuring elevator access, open and airy floor plans of approximately 1,374 to 1,746 square feet and priced from $1.5 million. A timeless color palette is warmed by subtle textures and clean, contemporary lines for a visual kinship with the surrounding landscape, while premium design elements such as quartz countertops elevate each home to a sophisticated place. Thoughtfully designed to dissolve the barrier between indoors and out, each residence at La’i Loa features an expansive sliding window wall on the makai side of each home, opening elegantly to the ocean views beyond.
Gently commanding the top floor of each building, 15 sublime penthouse residences offer approximately 2,587 square feet of modern living space with unsurpassed ocean vistas. Priced from $3.6 million, these four-bedroom residences dazzle with an open floor plan, junior suite and full-master suite. A grand sliding window wall connects the great room to an expansive lanai of approximately 778 square feet, complete with an exterior wet bar and built-in BBQ, ideal for unforgettable sunset dinners with family and friends.
La’i Loa will boast a stunning collection of amenities including a pool terrace with expansive ocean views, an infinity-edge pool with dedicated 75-foot swimming lanes, spa tub with sunset views, island-view fitness center; men’s and women’s spa facilities with steam room and sauna; shade pavilion featuring elegant lounge seating; private outdoor dining area; fire pit with open-sky views and a recreation lawn terrace for yoga, bocce ball, lawn games and gatherings.
A signature feature of the Wailea Hills Collection is its uniquely pedestrian-friendly design, connecting residents to not only the greater community, but also to local beaches, shopping and dining experiences, and nearby resorts. The elevated location of La’i Loa in Wailea provides refreshing trade wind breezes and a spectacular perspective with above-it-all views of the ocean, neighboring islands and the slopes of Haleakala.
Large private storage rooms for each home provide a cool, dry place to accommodate golf clubs, bicycles, surfboards, luggage and more, combining the spaciousness of a single-family home with the effortless convenience of a lock-and-leave condominium.
“We’ve crafted every moment here for gathering and connection, from spaces that meander and weave from interior to exterior and enhanced lanais, to a timeless color palette that reflects this unique location and its legends,” said Holly Bolling Ruiz, partner at Honolulu-based Philpotts Interiors who is working alongside award-winning architectural firm Weinstein A+U.
The Wailea Hills Collection Sales Gallery is currently open to the public by private appointment at The Shops at Wailea and virtual appointments are also available. Polaris Pacific, the leading real estate sales and marketing group for new residential communities, is handling the sales and marketing for the community.
