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.
Policies and fees

The hotel will undergo exterior renovations from 2 Sept to 2 Nov 2014, which will include installing new roofing on the Dolphin and Emerald Buildings and a spalling project on the Aloha Tower. Refurbishment works will be done during weekdays from 8 AM to 3 PM. During this period, the oceanfront pool will be closed.

Great place for an overnighter or a week

We arrived late and checked out early, but there was always someone at the front desk ready to take care of us. The first time we stayed there they even gave us a box of chocolates and some bottled water. Although they didn't offer that the second time, we still enjoyed the great service, clean room, great location, and even the restaurant was good.

Best Stay Thus Far!

We always stay at the Aston Kaanapali Villas and this is by far the best stay we've ever had there. The location was centrally located between Lahaina and Kapalua. Easy access to many beaches!

Whaler's Village is only a mile and half away. The beach walk is enjoyable. There's also a shuttle to the shopping and dining.

Nice beach side stay

Our location was nice because the pool and ocean were very nearby. There was also adequate parking nearby.

Real Hawaii.

This was the Hawaii that I remember from TV and film. The grounds were well kept, the flowering plants and trees beautiful, and the towering palms added just the right touch. The room was right out of Hawaii 5 O. The hotel is on the trolley route that is convenient to most of what we were interested in seeing.

Nice hotel on the beach

Short drive to the strip of tourist shops in Lahaina. Short drive North to amazing natural wonders like lava rocks and blow holes with pools of tropical fish. Castaways restaurant is just behind the hotel (between the hotel and beach) which was great for breakfast. Our room had a partial ocean view which was nice. It was a pretty large room with a full kitchen and a large fridge.

Friendly place in a great location

We had a wonderful trip. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed walks on the beautiful beach. We could walk to good snorkeling which was very close by. The room was clean and attractive.

Always Reliable

We've stayed at the Aston Kaanapali Villas five times, so we obviously love staying there. While some condo units are upgraded with newer amenities, others are above average. It's within walking distance of the beach and Whalers Village, and only 10 minutes away from Lahaina Town. Great location! Plus there's a friendly staff at the onsite cafe, The Castaway Cafe.
