This lush Hawaiian isle is a perennial favorite with incentive planners. Among the reasons for its appeal: the wide range of properties suitable for groups.

In news on the hotel front, the hip 297-room Andaz Wailea Resort & Residences will debut in March 2013. The oceanfront resort will feature a fitness center, a spa and meeting space (specifics still to be determined at press time).

Nearby, the elegant 413-room, 37-villa Fairmont Kea Lani in Wailea has reopened its signature restaurant called Ko.

In Kaanapali, the expansive Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa has completed a renovation of all 508 of its guest rooms.
