(And another chance to win 5 FREE nights in a Penthouse Suite... so read on to the end)

Aloha !!

So the story continues since our last newsletter.....are you ready? OK, OK listen in to the tale of this magical land....

When we last left off, the staff and owners of the 'Sunseeker' were ecstatic because they had bought the property behind the three buildings we all know and love as the current Maui Sunseeker LGBT Resort, pictured above.

That 'new' property is known as 'Serenity', located at 20 Wailana Place (pictured below). At one time, Serenity was a 'wellness center' and rumor has it that even Whitney Houston stayed there at one time. (OK, so you say she's been in and out of so many places, that any dive can make that claim.....point taken)

But hang in, the story continues.

Serenity Building

In our last story we talked of great dreams of spas and even an outdoor jacuzzi. Remember that tale?

We also asked for your opinions in the last newsletter. Some said... 'We want a 24 hour jacuzzi!' Others said 'We want a pool!' And yet others said, 'Build us a SPA!'

We said OMG, these people!! Are they ever happy?? (kidding-we really do love making you happy)

We honestly digress, but wait!! There really is BIG news!!

We can now say that the property behind Serenity (which is behind Sunseeker) known as Sugar Beach, a property located at 26 Wailana Place, is in escrow to be bought by... dah, dah dah daaaah.....the Maui Sunseeker LGBT Resort, your home on Maui!

Yeah I know, we are just as thrilled!!

Sugar Beach Front

Can you imagine a contiguous 1 acre gated compound of adults-only property right on the North Kihei shore that is fully dedicated to the LGBT Community??

We can! And we have, as our dreams are nearly reality. If all goes according to plan, we will close escrow in March 2011 and hope to have the 'Sugar Beach' property online in May with 4 poolside full suites, upstairs is a 2,000 sqaure foot Penthouse unit with an adjacent junior suite. The addition of these two properties will literally double the amount of land that currently comprises the Sunseeker resort.

Most addition to giving the Maui Sunseeker LGBT Resort much more land, we will now have, most importantly, a pool!! Many guests just want a place to relax on property without all the Little Beach brouhaha, now they will have it.

Crazy as it may seem to share these, here are the 'before' pictures.

Sugar Beach Side

Remember these are the 'before' pictures, so no judgements, pleez?

When all is complete, we will increase from a 17 room resort to a 31 room resort with breakfast service, a pool, an in-ground outdoor jacuzzi and a total of 6 buildings on one acre of land with much more planned.

We would like to hear what your thoughts are for what's important in our design and policies as we go forward. Please take a moment to complete our development survey.   We want to know what you think of our clothing optional policy and what amenities YOU want to have. Your opinions matter to us, so please share them now as we go through our design.



We have heard many of your ideas and think we can incorporate all of them into a resort that will become a true destination, not just a place to sleep. Hence, our new advertising slogan for Maui Sunseeker:

"Destination Maui; Not just another beachside resort".

Perhaps you've seen the slogan in an ad....or maybe just slept through it?? (Its ok, I did) So we really need your creative help!!

With all of the talent out there in our LGBT clientele, we know you can write a brilliant new slogan we will use in our ads. We've used the slogan 'Feel Free by the Sea' so long that its etched our computer screens. Time for fresh ideas from you, the honored friends and guests of the Sunseeker.

Give us a winning slogan that captures the essence of the Maui Sunseeker LGBT Resort and you win 5 free nights in one of our Penthouse Suites!

Our HD Webcam
Visitors LOVE IT!!

One of our Facebook Friends on the HD Webcam posted "I just saw a huge whale swim right past your front door!!"

You can see Kaho'olawe to Lanai, Ma'alaea to Sugar Beach right from the live camera mounted on our Penthouse roof.

Check out the view from the HD Cam HERE 

(HD WebCam mounted on eave of Penthouse Lanai but not to worry if you reserve the PH, camera position is limited so guests cannot be seen)


Installed by Bump Networks, the HD technology is amazing. Not only can you control the camera for 2 minutes at a time by clicking on 'Control', you can move the tabs at the top to swing the camera left and right.

But wait it gets better. See a hot man in a skimpy banana boat on the beach? Or a wela wahine, emerging from the sea? Just use the cursor on your mouse and draw a box around them in the picture. The camera will automatically zoom in so close, you'll swear you're sitting next to them.

This will give all of our website viewers the ability to see the natural beauty that surrounds the resort, right from their laptop thousands of miles away.

So when you are blizzard bound and need a quick thaw, just pay us a visit and mark it as a favorite in your browser!!

E komo mai!! (Welcome)

And while you visiting our camsite, book a room as we really want to see you too!!


We treated 24 guests to go on Both Sides Now Whale Watch tour earlier this month. They had a phenomenal time and the bay around the hotel was LOADED with whales that even played with the boat.

Plus it benefits our local LGBT organization, Both Sides Now. 

The tours will be in the afternoon of the following dates:

You'll be back on land by 4 pm which is plenty of time to catch the evening flights to the mainland or head to Little Beach for Drum Circle.

We'll make the same offer, if you book 3 or more nights in one of our rooms over a Whale Watch date, we'll make the donation for up to two tickets for you to attend the event.

But hurry, we sell out for these popular events so book your room now. 

A special thanks to Llevellyn Lightsey for his phenomenal photography.
