Where to begin! One of my best friends miraculously asked me to join her and her assistant on a business/pleasure trip, and it was nothing short of magical. Everything about this resort was a dream come true. The beaches, pool and grounds were immaculate and peaceful. Never felt crowded or too busy. Breath-taking views everywhere you looked. Super friendly staff. We ate at the on-site restaurant multiple times & it was some of the best food we had our entire trip. Upon arrival you receive a lush lei made of unreal orchids and a coupon for a free Mai Tai from their bar. Delicious americanos at the coffee shop. We were there during whaling season and it felt like we had a front row seat to a wildlife documentary. Honolua Bay is right down the road and was the ideal spot for some amateur snorkeling. The sunrise at Haleakala and the Road to Hana were highlights of the trip, and it was always so nice to return to the resort for a relaxed evening and picturesque sunset. We truly did not want to leave and I would highly recommend Royal Lahaina to anyone who is wanting to experience some of the best Maui has to offer! A huge mahalo to everyone who made our trip an unforgettable one! I hope to return again one day soon! Read less

This is the second time we’ve visited this hotel albeit with a 20 year time gap! We are pleased to see it still had retained its Hawaiian charm, but had also had some upgrades like the Hot tub and Gym. The location is just spectacular, including unreal sunsets in a really chilled environment. Highly recommend this hotel!
