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.

We felt like we were part of the family while at this hotel. And a terrific location besides! Just can't say enough good things about the staff and the way they make you feel at home instead of at some sterile hotel.

My mom is 80, this was for her birthday, she told me that she wanted to see the Hawaiian Islands one last time. It was also my wife’s birthday this month so as the saying goes, I killed to birds with one stone

The location of this hotel was perfect. You are in walking distance to the shops and restaurants at whalers village and every tour we took picked us up from this location. You really don't need to rent a car unless you plan to go far or to places without tour guides. We took an uber almost every night to the front street area for dinner and drinks. That area is a fun night spot with lots of restaurants and bars and shops. It was just $11 uber ride each way. We did eat at the hotel restaurant our first night and my fish was delicious it was just a bit pricey. We also had snacks one afternoon from the snack bar next to the bar and we had the happy hour of the day drink every afternoon while getting some sun. The people were very friendly at the hotel. We would definitely go back. Read less
