The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences

Many families enjoy visiting the same place year after year to have the comfort level of returning the the same vacation spot. This may be the time to think about a vacation property. The Ritz-Carlton Club in Maui is an oasis of calm and beauty. Buy a unit and enjoy all of the amenities of the club property as well at The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua hotel. Once you are in Kapalua, beach, pools, tennis, golf, snorkeling, scuba, ziplining, spa and more are available to accommodate each family member's interests.

Make a dream come true

The many options in this category just ask parents to be creative. Thinks about your child's hopes and dreams and make them come true on vacation. Anyone can book a hotel and swim and relax, but maybe your child loves horses and would be thrilled to visit a ranch. Book a delux suite at Alisal. A budding artist would find a trip to the museums of Paris inspiring. Stay in the Presidential, Louis XV or Leonard Berstein suite at the Hotel de Crillon. For a wildlife loving future biologist, charter a yacht from Blue Parallel to see the Galapagos. If your child is studying Japanese, visit Tokyo. Stay on 53rd floor the Club level of The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo, to marvel at the view (often you can see Mount Fuji) then head into the bustling metropolis to explore the shrines, gardens, museums and more. The options are limitless. Planning a trip to explore a special passion...priceless.
