august • 2019 keiki cover models

We want to thank the Jarrett family for sharing their keiki Kaizenkoa & Kailea for this month’s cover photo!

Mom is Megan Jarrett, concierge at Grand Wailea Resort & Spa. Kaizenkoa is a year old; big sister Kailea is seven years old, and attends Doris Todd Christian School, where she just finished first grade.

Kailea enjoys ballet, swim team, going to the beach with her family to surf, and she also loves art.

Mom shares, “My kids inspire me to always have fun, be grateful, and to make the most out of life! I love my job—there is so much beauty everywhere I look, and I feel extremely blessed. My children bring me so much joy, and I want to do everything I can to make sure they have an amazing life. I love how my job as a concierge helps keep me aware of how many fun things for keiki Maui has to offer!”


maui tropical plantation + the mill house: celebrating maui’s agricultural bounty

If it’s been a while since you suggested Maui Tropical Plantation (MTP) to guests, or even visited yourself, you’ll definitely want to add it to your list of must-do experiences. Over the past few years, MTP has undergone an extraordinary and exciting transformation. Showcasing our island’s extensive agricultural history and bounty, today MTP has something to offer the entire family, with its variety of activities, enticing food and beverage options, and drop-dead gorgeous views of the West Maui mountains. And plentiful free parking, plus no admission fee, make MTP even easier to recommend.

The best way to orient oneself after arriving at MTP is to ride the Tropical Express, a fun, educational narrated tram tour that loops around the idyllic lagoon. The 45-minute ride departs on the hour seven times per day, and costs $24 for adults; $12 for keiki 3-12 years old (age 2 years and under rides for free on a parent’s lap).
