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, and can be seen from the Tiki Terrace Restaurant.

We Loved the dinner experience at Hui Hui. The food was prepared and plated beautifully. Our server was attentive and friendly and the live entertainment was a very nice surprise. The location is terrific but because of the old carpet and mattress we won’t stay again.

Our 4th time back since 2006 and we’ll continue to come back to this hotel. Both the staff and fellow guests are pleasant. The rooms are well kept and the location is ideal. The new restaurants have delicious options for food and drink. We were pleased to see that they’ve continued to provide live entertainment every evening.
