Free validated valet parking and buy-one entree-get-one-half-off at Humuhumunukunukuapua‘a is one way the Grand Wailea lets locals know that they’re are more than welcome to enjoy the beautiful resort. Another is their discount of 25 percent off for weddings and banquet events and 15 percent off the spa. Want to linger a bit longer? Room rates start at $299 for Maui residents, too. And you thought you were just coming for the lobster. 3850 Wailea Alanui Dr.; 808-875-1234; grandwailea.com
