Kaanapali Beach Hotel

Maui, Hawaii

The hotel

Something of a state treasure, Ka'anapali Beach Hotel truly captures the spirit of Hawaii, teaching guests the true meaning of ‘Aloha’. Warm and extremely welcoming, you’ll feel like one of the family as soon as you arrive. Guest rooms are large and spacious, with original artwork and island-style wicker and rattan, as well as a furnished balcony from which to admire stunning ocean, courtyard or garden views. The courtyard is something of a sanctuary, shaded by Kukui Nut Trees, ever blooming Plumerias and 6-storey palm trees. Kids will love the whale-shaped swimming pool as well as the Aloha Passport for Kids program. Adults, meanwhile, can engage in Lauhala weaving, Ukulele lessons, Hula lessons or Hawaiian language lessons. Hawaiian entertainment is offered in the evening on the Tiki Courtyard stage, and can be seen from the Tiki Terrace Restaurant, home to Kaʻanapali Beach Hotel’s award-winning Sunday Brunch. Every Friday night not only are you treated to local song and dance in the Tiki Courtyard area, there’s a local Maui halau (hula school) too, highlighting the hula of past and present. Every Monday, embark on an exciting journey as the story and history of Kaʻanapali is told through enchanting hula and narration at the Legends of Kaʻanapali Luʻau.

Great location and the staff was at tentative and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained and the beach area is beautiful. The hotel is near the town of Lahaina which has a lot of things to do.

Lovely view from the room and balcony, very relaxing to look at. Nice breakfast buffet. I was disappointed that the toilet was extremely low, even had to request a "riser". Paid parking seemed high and the handicap spots seemed to always be occupied.

Wonderful grounds, plenty of activities, Hawaiian food, clean rooms and wonderful staff. Wonderful view of Kaanapali beach and Black rock. Smells of Plumeria filled the air. The staff gave us a different room that better suited our needs. The hotel is older but beautiful and well managed!

This was a mother/daughter trip and the resort had a lot of things for us to do and we enjoyed the relaxing entertainment each night. The concierge helped us plan a breath taking trip to the Summitt to watch the sunrise

Just back from staying at the kannapali beach hotel for our first 4 days on Maui this is our 3rd time here and will always keep on coming back. We love this hotel and all the amazing staff that works here. The room was fantastic had a great courtyard view with the ocean view alittle bit. On our 2nd bight we went to eat at the tiki terrace restaurant and had some fantastic food and drinks staff was fast and friendly and we even got to watch some nightly entertainment while eating our meal. We also rented a canbana for a day and had a great day laying out on the beach and people watching. All in all we will keep coming back to our favorite hotel in Maui. Read less
