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.

The staff at this resort are noticeably more kind and attentive than neighboring resorts. The food is delicious and authentic. The pool is a little small and no hot tub but the beach location is perfect. They are under construction right now and the rooms in the Molokai wing are a bit outdated.

The staff at this resort are noticeably more kind and attentive than neighboring resorts. The food is delicious and authentic. The pool is a little small and no hot tub but the beach location is perfect. They are under construction right now and the rooms in the Molokai wing are a bit outdated. Our room had a fridge, shower with great pressure, amazing A/C, and an extra cot. The TV was small and a microwave would have been nice. Also due to construction parking and safes are no additional charge which was great! Costco has good package deals here. Read less

We live on the island and made a last minute staycation. I called in the morning and reserved three rooms for one night. Beverly accommodated me by reserving the rooms for us. Well. I called twice to change from two rooms to three! When we got there Jenny at the front desk made us feel comfortable to be who we local are. She laughed and conversed with us, but the best thing was she was able to get us ground level rooms next and across for us and two were joined together make a true family experience. I have six children two which is adults and a granddaughter. We also had my son-in-law and his best friend and fiancé join us. We were able to enjoy the pool which is simple yet perfect for everyone to enjoy. We walked to nearby shops and restaurants and had one unbelievable family get away well needed. Ka’anapali Beach Hotel is the only hotel I stay at. Simple, relaxing, a true Hawaiian experience! Read less

My husband and I stayed at the hotel about 16 years ago and were glad to come back. Our room decor was a bit dated and tired but the room was very clean and they are working to remodel. The mattress is a bit too hard and there were no wash clothes but that isn't the end of the world. The location is fantastic. We were walking distance to the beach, a grocery store and food trucks and some places to get a quick bite to eat. The only major downside is that they really need a QR reader so they can easily verify you have been screened by the State of HI for COVID. After traveling for over 12 hours and waiting to check in for 15 minutes, the last thing we wanted to deal with is having to log into our laptop to show them the picture of the screening because they could not read the QR code we had easily accessible from our phones. That shouldn't be a huge investment and would go a long way in making check in a lot smoother. Read less

Great location. Everyone was very friendly. I understand they are remolding and once it is finished this will be a premium place to stay. Right on the beach an just a short walk to the local mall and other restaurants along the beach.
