Discover Your Paradise At The Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa

Some places are so beautiful that it’s hard to believe they exist in reality and not the imagination. With its idyllic location nestled between world famous Kaanapali Beach and Black Rock, the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is just such a place – a combination of natural wonders and modern luxuries that must be experienced to be believed.

Almost all the rooms at the Sheraton Maui Resort directly face the Pacific Ocean, with a private lanai (patio or balcony) to allow you to soak in the sensational view. In addition to the lush pool, outstanding and diverse dining options, and Hawaiian cultural events, the Spa at Black Rock offers world class treatment, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

Perhaps the greatest amenities at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa are the natural marvels located at the front step of the property. Kaanapali Beach is renowned as one of America’s finest beaches, offering three miles of pristine golden sand that was once the preferred vacation retreat for the royalty of Maui.

Along Kaanapali Beach you’ll find a stunning snorkeling cove, swaying palm trees, and the dramatic outcropping volcanic rock known as Pu’u Keka’a or Black Rock. Each evening the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa becomes the exclusive location for the traditional torch lighting and cliff diving ceremony. As the sun sets, a cliff diver lights torches as he climbs, then dives off Black Rock in a reenactment of the feat by Maui’s revered King Kahekili.

The Sheraton Resort & Spa also offers complimentary shuttles, running throughout the day, to the historic port town of Lahaina. Once the capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom in the early 19th century, Lahaina is now a bustling town filled with unique shops, art galleries, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

Whatever your idea of paradise is, you’ll find it in Maui and at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa. We can’t wait for you to come experience it for yourself… see you at Escape To Paradise!

You guessed it!

We’ve always believed that we had the smartest preneed company in America and based on your responses to the Where In The World contest, we’re absolutely convinced!

The majority of the responses we received were very close to our actual destination, but we were looking for the guesses that came closest in order to be eligible to win. In the end we had several contestants that specified Lahaina, Maui – the nearest town to the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa. We put those names into a coconut, shook it around, and randomly selected two winners of the $100 prize.

We’re pleased to give a big ho'omaika'i 'ana (congratulations) to Connie Wills of Johnstown, Colo. and Dan Lyon of Pullman, Wash. for being the accurate and lucky winners! Check your mail next week to collect your winnings!

Mahalo (thank you) to everyone that participated. We’ll have more chances to win great prizes in the coming months so stay tuned!
