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, equipped 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. Complimentary 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.

My first time to Hawaii in general, and the location & hotel itself with it's property, etc., really, really made my trip that much more superb. I will & have recommended it to numerous people already, and I will continue to use this place as my Maui hub in the future!

We absolutely loved our 5 night stay. An older property but don’t let that put you off. We booked a partial ocean view package including hire car and other inclusions. Great value. The gardens are massive with beach chairs everywhere - just decide where you want to sit and sit there / drag a chair there. Lovely pool and other facilities too.… Read more

Staff is great, lots of customer service. Many activities on premises that are no charge. Prices are most reasonably. We have stayed here 4 times. Down side is the rooms are not as luxurious as surrounding resort hotels. But the prices out way that it you want to stay on kaanapali beach.

The staff at this hotel are lovely, and the location in Maui is great - however my main complaint is it is very outdated. The rooms have a musty smell and very old fashioned furniture. If you are looking for a modern luxury place to stay then this place is not for you. When I go back to Maui, I will be trying a different hotel.
