The Westin Maui Resort & Spa -- host of M&C's Destination Hawaii event in September -- has a new look and feel in its 533-room Ocean Tower.

The $70 million transformation added new furnishings, state-of-the-art electronics, elegant glass-enclosed showers, and new balconies with transparent glass railings that provide panoramic views of the legendary Ka'anapali Beach and Maui's mountains.

The 759-room beachfront resort rests on 12 luxurious acres. Planners choose from a wide variety of indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, including the 1,000-person Valley Isle Ballroom and the unique Aloha Pavilion, expandable to 11,000 square feet, featuring beach access, outdoor grilling and a full-service kitchen.
