Makena's Hottest New Development

Makena Real Estate

This lovely coastal spot in the southwestern part of Maui enjoys a scenic setting with privacy and elite properties. Nestled between world-class beaches like Maluaka Beach and the lush green foothills of Haleakala, many of the outstanding properties surrounding the Makena Golf and Beach Club will command exceptional Pacific Ocean views.

An Exciting New Development

Planning continues for the construction of a number of proposed residential enclaves in the Makena area. The Maui Prince Hotel stood along this section of coastline for many years. The 310-unit Makena Beach and Golf Resort subsequently replaced it. Recently, Discovery Land Company commenced renovations near the site to erect a luxury Makena Golf and Beach Club and 50 homes on a 24-acre tract.

Extensive additional development will occur in the vicinity during the coming years. For example, developers recently refurbished the 47-acre site of the former Maui Prince Hotel. It will accommodate a new multimillion-dollar residential private Beach Club (replacing the Makena Beach and Golf Resort). It encompasses a total of 50 residences.

Planners contemplate a nearby 134-unit project designed to serve a variety of diverse uses. Nearby, a nearly 28-acre tract may include an additional 53 single-family custom homes. The prospect of opulent residences arising over the course of the next two decades has already elicited interest from prospective buyers. The location lies within easy commuting distance of both the Pacific Ocean and the renowned Wailea community.

About Discovery Land Company

Established by Mike Meldman in 1994, the company has founded some 23 international and national resorts. These communities include The Summit in Las Vegas, Troubadour in Nashville, Driftwood in Austin, and Chileno Bay in Cabo San Lucas. These enclaves seek to incorporate opportunities for golf and outdoor activities within comfortable family residential settings.

Mike Meldman possesses extensive real estate development experience. An actor and producer known for Battleship (2012), he previously partnered for several years with George Clooney and Rande Gerbe in a successful company, Casamigos. His realty development projects span several continents.

The Makena Golf And Beach Club

Makena Resort

The new Golf and Beach Club will occupy prime real estate in Makena. Encompassing some 1800 acres, it will furnish opulent facilities. Planned amenities at this site include direct access to a remarkable beachfront, a private golf course, a spa, several pools, and a fine dining venue. Maui real estate buyers selecting properties associated with the Beach Club enjoy close proximity to these attractions.

The residential subdivisions surrounding the site offer a variety of living spaces: single-family houses, luxurious cottages, condos, and penthouse apartments. The latter will sit on the upper level of the new clubhouse. These seven proposed Beach Club Residences feature customized spacious one, two, and three-bedroom units. They offer excellent Pacific Ocean and mountain vistas.

Planning A Superb Residential Enclave

Construction has already commenced on the first of the eight beach cottages adjoining acclaimed Maluaka Beach. Planners expect to complete this portion of the development during the summer of 2021. The four-bedroom, 4.5 bath luxury cottages offer open, airy multi-level floor plans with gourmet kitchens. Each will supply access to an outdoor plunge pool and grilling facilities.

Maui realty buyers will discover two multi-family residential communities situated close to the new Beach Club. Both the Kula Villas (overlooking the facility) and the Molokini Residences (in Makena) anticipate spacious four-bedroom dwellings. Gourmet kitchens, excellent ocean views, and plunge pools will enhance the opulence of these luxury homes. Residents of both locations should enjoy close access to the Beach Club's resort-style amenities.

Available Homesites in a Vacation Haven

Maui real estate buyers also enjoy a great opportunity to construct fine custom single-family houses in this neighborhood. The proposed development includes the exclusive Maluaka Estates, a subdivision consisting of 13 homesites. These tracts range in size from 0.5 to 0.75 acres. They offer panoramic Pacific Ocean Vistas.

Residents will enjoy excellent access to the new Beach Club and its amenities. By selecting lots now, buyers have a great opportunity to build residences customized to meet their unique requirements. The choice location also furnishes great access to the nearby Wailea Resort and its extensive recreational opportunities.

Another Nearby Residential Development

Recently, representatives of Pacific Rim Land, Inc. conducted a Makena Homeowners Association meeting to detail the status of another proposed development near the new Beach Club. The company oversees a project to construct a 53-unit residential enclave on an adjoining 27.8-acre tract. Environmental studies for this project remained ongoing in early January 2021.

The developer anticipates some infrastructure improvements may soon occur in the vicinity. Specifically, some county roads may require enhancement. Additionally, the location of the current Maluaka Beach parking lot might change, possibly to a more southerly site.
