Manele Bay Hotel scored an overall rating of 94.3, placing it in first place among golf resorts in North America, Hawaii and the Caribbean. The Challenge at Manele course ranked fifth for course design, second for speed of play, and fourth for pro staff. Condé Nast Traveler said, "Just a hop from Maui, this golf gem has all the class of top tour facilities.

Guest rooms are large with Hawaiian personality. The elegant pool area overlooks Hulopo'e Beach, and the lobby's Asian murals add a touch of the exotic. The Challenge course plays intoxicatingly high above the shoreline, increasing in altitude as the game progresses."

Of its sister course, The Experience at Koele, the magazine said, "Set aside a day to play the wildly different high-country course at the sister property, Lodge at Koele." The upcountry course ranked highest for speed of play (89.1), and fourth overall for best golf resort. "Rustic American cuisine with a local flair is staggeringly perfect," said readers.

The Lodge at Koele received a "Top Service in Hawaii" rating by the readers of Travel & Leisure in its annual World's Best Service Survey. It also made it into the "Top Ten Hotels for Service Overall" worldwide. Guests at The Lodge are pampered with the unsurpassed service and island hospitality at this intimate hideaway in an upcountry setting unlike any other in Hawaii.
