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.

This is the best Hawaiian hotel on the island. We always get the best rooms with the best views. The chef is amazing and prepared our catch of the day. Cleanest beaches! Very family friendly! Breathtaking views!!

The location and the proximity to the beach were great. We stayed at their oldest building. It is very dated. The bathroom and the sink areas were very tight. If the closet door is open, you won’t be able to access the bathroom. It seems they have newer rooms in different buildings. The staff was great a d the overall experience was good.

Apr 7, 2021 Regretfulguest

The room is outdated, old and smells old. The price is for a 4 star hotel but the room and the hotel is nof a 1-2 star hotel. Very expensive! Will not recommend! Better to stay in a house for rent. I regret I picked this hotel.
