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.

Excellent hotel and highly recommend.We were there the last week before they closed because of the Virus and the smiles on the staff could not be bigger and friendlier even though hard times were coming.

We liked the hotel and the garden very much. In contrary to other hotels at Ka'anapali Beach it's not a highrise and there is a huge garden. The staff was all the time very friendly and helpful. We are looking forward to coming back soon.

Love, love, love this place. We always feel comfortable, safe and welcome. There is nothing like being out and about and then returning to the courtyard, where it is calm with the sound of Hawaiian music in the air. Sit on your balcony and watch the stars. Our stays are never long enough!

This beach resort is family friendly and all families with there children enjoyed this resort. I would definitely go back and stay. The staff from start to finish was nice and knowledgeable. My only gripe would be the mold I did not see in the rooms but smelled was to strong.

Would be nice if on the website they stated that the rooms were super outdated, some people like the old original feel. We would have liked a more updated room, for the price we payed comparable to the neighboring resorts. Overall we had a great stay! Staff was excellent & location was amaxing.
