ROAM Maui Offers Exclusive Luxury Air Travel
For those who travel frequently to Maui, the struggle of going through the whole traditional airport routine is real. Many of my clients and people I know travel to or from Maui regularly to enjoy wind sports, enjoy a second home, or for business. Even if you have TSA Precheck and are flying First-Class, the airport can still be an unwelcome experience with the crowds and lines.
Until recently, the primary options for luxury travel between Maui or Hawaii and the continental United States were to fly on a private jet or with first-class accommodations on a commercial flight. While both of these options have benefits, they are also riddled with inconveniences and disadvantages that make them less than ideal for many travelers. ROAM now provides select Maui homeowners with another option that offers a private jet experience without the cost of ownership.
A Closer Look at ROAM Maui
ROAM Maui is an exclusive airline carrier that specifically caters to Maui homeowners in five exclusive communities. This semi-private carrier operates direct flights from Maui to Seattle, San Jose, and Los Angeles. It is an affiliate of ROAM Private Air, which is known for its jet membership service, on-demand charter service, and more. The primary mission of ROAM Maui is to provide a more convenient, economical, and luxurious transportation solution to those who fly frequently between the mainland and Maui.
It strives to provide travelers with onboard services and accommodations that are more refined than those that are available through first-class commercial airline travel. The private carrier has two Boeing 737-700 aircraft with VIP configurations. Each plane can serve 58 travelers. Across the 14 rows, each roomy seat reclines to an almost-flat position and is richly upholstered.
While in the air, travelers have access to an open bar, ultra-fast Wi-Fi, purified air, on-demand entertainment, concierge service, and chef-prepared meals. All meals are created by the winner of “Best Chef in America,” Charlie Palmer. Travelers can take advantage of private airport terminals as well as a pre-planned flight schedule. Flights travel out of all four destinations each week for the convenience of club members. If you want to inquire directly with ROAM, you can call 1-800-563-ROAM.
ROAM Maui Currently Only Serves Homeowners in 5 Homeowner Associations
Currently, ROAM serves residents in only five exclusive Maui communities. These are the Wailea Resort Association, the Kaanapali Golf Estates, the Makena Golf & Beach Club, the Kula Community Association, and the Kapalua Resort Association. Those who choose to take advantage of this elite club experience can purchase a vertical membership for the family.
There is also an associated PAWS club, which provides the club members’ pets with a welcome kit, in-flight entertainment, and deluxe accommodations when traveling. With a ROAM membership, all family members have unlimited access to flights without blackout dates. The annual cost of membership is more affordable than the price of one round-trip ticket between Maui and the Mainland.
To take advantage of the benefits of ROAM membership for your transportation between the island and the mainland, you must be a homeowner in one of the five distinguished communities. What do these elite communities offer to their residents?
Kula Community Association
Kula is a stunning Upcountry residential district on the slopes of Haleakala at an elevation between 2,000 and about 3,500 feet. The community features a wide range of luxury residential homes and large agricultural properties at various price points, including estate homes in two gated communities. Because of the mountain location, many homes have gorgeous bi-coastal views of the ocean in the distance.
Many of the finer homes in Kula have large, well-manicured grounds along with gorgeous lanais and fine finishes. Residents of Kula enjoy proximity to Kula Botanical Gardens, the Upcountry Farmer’s Market, Kula Country Farms, and more. Because of the community’s central location, residents also have easy access to attractions on all ends of the island, including Haleakala National Park to the east and Polipoli Spring State Recreation Area to the south.
Kaanapali Golf Estates
Kaanapali Golf Estates is a collection of several gated communities that sit between the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean and the backdrop of the West Maui Forest Reserve. Many of the homes in these communities are built on large estates and have fine craftsmanship throughout. There are also luxury condominium homes available in this residential area.
Located on the western portion of this coastal community, the Kaanapali Golf Courses offer 36 challenging holes with tropical scenery and memorable views from every angle. This Kaanapali community is also near world-class beaches, including Hanakao’o Park, Kaanapali Beach, and Black Rock Beach. With its location between Lahaina and Napili, this premium area is an ideal starting point for fun-filled days on the island.
Makena Golf and Beach Club
The Makena Golf and Beach Club spans 1,800 acres between Haleakala and the ocean. This is an elite, members-only community developed and managed by eh Discovery group that celebrates the island’s culture and incorporates nature into the living experience. There are numerous types of housing accommodations in the area, including luxurious condominiums, beach-style homes, cottages, villas, and more. Maluaka Estates is the most elite section of the community, and it features only 13 oceanfront homesites set on lots as large as .75 acres.
Many of the homes are located within a short walk from the Golf Course and the Beach Club. At the community’s Beach Club, residents can take advantage of an outdoor restaurant, a spa, a fitness space, and a poolside bar. The Kahului Airport is 19 miles from the community, making it ideal for those who wish to take advantage of ROAM’s convenient flight services. The community is also a short drive from Makena Beach, the Ahihi-Kinau Natural Reserve, White Rock Beach, and other popular spots.
Kapalua Resort Association
Kapalua Resort is an elite community that embraces nature across the entirety of its beautiful grounds. It offers a diverse selection of living spaces, including premium condos and estate-style homes. The sprawling grounds include several white sand beaches and two nature sanctuaries. There are also two celebrated golf courses on the grounds for residents to enjoy close to home. All of the homes for sale in Kapalua have a membership in the Kapalua Resort Association and receive all of the amenities that come with it.
The Montage Residences are one of Kapalua's premiere luxury properties and residents can enjoy island living along with the many amenities in a tranquil, indoor-outdoor setting.

Wailea Resort Association
Wailea Resort is a premium community located in West Maui just south of Kihei. The grounds cover 1,500 acres, and they are immaculately landscaped and ideally set between top-rated beaches and green hillsides. The many homes, condos, and estates offer something for homebuyers at most price points, including some waterfront estates that are valued at more than $30 million. All of the homes for sale in Wailea as well as the condos for sale in Wailea qualify for membership.
There are 13 condominium communities within the association as well, and these communities offer an array of onsite amenities.
