The Aston name is known for island hospitality across Hawaii, and the Aston Villas Hotel in Maui certainly fits the bill. The hotel's low-rise blocks overlook wooden walkways across seemingly infinite pools, fringed by the palm-laden shore of Kaanapali Beach. Suites and studios come equipped with a full kitchen and a private outdoor balcony. Down by the ocean, guests can sink their teeth into prime rib and sample the impressive wine list at the aptly-named Castaway Cafe, while enjoying the sunsets over Lanai and Molokai. Parents can play shuffleboard while the kids take ukulele lessons and learn how to make a lei at the Camp Kaanapali children's program (at nearby Aston Kaanapali  Shores). Guests visiting from November to April should bring their best binoculars for whale-watching season.

Neighborhood
Located among 11 acres of bright tropical greenery, the Aston Villas hotel sits on Kaanapali Beach in Lahaina, a former favorite of Hawaiian royalty and the heart of the lively West Maui region. Watersports, shops and restaurants are all located here, easily accessible from a tourist-friendly walkway running alongside the oceanfront resorts. Snorkel at northern Napili Bay, try kayaking and parasailing, or opt for the safe voyeurism of watching the graceful cliff divers at Puu Kekaa. Spend an afternoon wandering the old fishing port of Lahaina, five minutes away - stay until evening and you might see a more riotous side, plus copious amounts of feasting and entertainment at the Old Lahaina Luau on Front Street.
Hints and tips
  • Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas is best enjoyed as a quiet slice of paradise, but when you're yearning for adventure, use the resort's complimentary shuttle to pick up souvenirs at the open-air Whalers Village shopping center.
  • The athletically-inclined can enjoy eighteen holes at one of the nearby championship golf courses, or limber up on one of the Royal Lahaina Tennis Ranch's 11 courts.

Perfect location

We returned to this condo/hotel complex as it offers a perfect beach location in lovely garden surroundings. The studio room we stayed in had all the amenities for quick meals and relaxing on the patio.

Xmas Vacation To Paradise

We have stayed at this resort before and once again it was GREAT!!! Location is perfect. The snorkeling right outside the resort was crystal clear. No need to book a separate trip or go anywhere else. The Castaway café has great food at a fair price. The rooms was nicely updated and the staff friendly as always.. We will not stay anywhere but MKV.. See ya next year.....

Awesome gateway

We stayed 6 nights on November 2013. We enjoyed our stay. The beach is really nice. The hotel room was fully equipped with a nice balcony that was convenient for having breakfast or "watching stars" dinners. The hotel location is awesome: Nice beach, close to stores, dryer Maui shore.

Great for family getaway

The hotel location was excellent. I was a bit dissapointed in that the room had dust, as if it had not been used for a while and it was not cleaned prior to my arrival, but since I got a deal, I overlooked that. The beaches around here were fabolous for kids. I drove around other parts of the island and was pleased with my selection.

Maui Hotel on a Budget

I am not picky when it comes to hotels, but this was the first hotel I have ever been to that did not have an ice machine. The only negative thing I have to say is that we found 1 cockroach in our room every day and these roaches are mammoths. The location of this hotel is great -- you are on the beach, which was never crowded. Access to the board walk that you can take to restaurants, whalers village, black rock, and snorkeling.

Fantastic value and helful staff

Staff were very welcoming and very very helpful, they let us check in about 4 - 5 hrs earlier than regular check-in time. Also if the room was not ready, they were willing to hold my luggage, provide me some beach towels and spend the time till I get the room at the beach.

satisfied with a few minor issues

PRO: It's a suite with all kitchen utensils, microwave oven, frig, etc... queen beds. half ocean view, half garden view. Value is OK for the price. CON: there is a slight odor in entrance on the first day. The desk has exposed nails and cut our legs.
