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.

Maui Delight

This was my second time I was here and the first time was 20 yrs ago . It was better this time and I want to thank the Hotel Staff , everyone of them for making our visit the best . Everyone at the hotel when presented with a question , gave us a great recommendation or took care of it . I went snorkeling the last day and the gentleman at the beach house told us where to go and I saw a lot of beautiful fish out by the reef . The room was great . We were in 620 and had a great ocean view and a great kitchen and a king size bed. My only mistake was not staying for two weeks. Live an Learn :--)

Honeymoon !!

The staff was the best!! We checked in late, around 8:30 p.m. after a long flight from Memphis. Everyone was so helpful and they even gave us a bottle of champaigne for our upcoming wedding. Our room was great, the whole compound was beautiful and looked like a picture perfect area the whole time we were there. The food at the cafe was excellant. Would go back and stay again...

Maui anniversary

Paradise, the view was amazing. The grounds were incredible. Staff was courteous. Only problem was the day time temp was 95 degrees and the air conditioner couldn't keep up in room 621.

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.

recent reno makes it a best kept secret..!

The grounds were just beautiful,, and the staff were very professional and friendly.. we had a wonderful time.. Any Maintenance was attended to immediately. As with any huge reno.. there are a few minor issues, but the staff is right there. thanks for the best trip ever.. Pic your airline carefully however.. price isn't all there is to consider..

A great place for families

We have been to the villas before and can say they have been consistently good over the last 10 + years. This place is conveniently located in the Kaanapali Resort area so it has free shuttle service to Whalers Village and is also located across the street from one of the Sugar Cane Train station. This location also features an easy access to a nice not too crowded beach or you can take a leisurely long stroll to Black Rock. I recommend this place for families because you can request a condo unit (i.e. Room with kitchette and or multiple beds). The restaurant located on the property is pricey but good.

Save money by getting a unit with kitchette and cook your meals instead of eating out every meal. There is a Costco located in Airport area (Kahului) but also Safeways and drugstores which carries basic food items like milk and cereal or spaghetti.

Great family location

The hotel and location is great! We had a wonderful time. We like that was quiet in the hotel during night time and we feel safe and relax. This is the best place to stay in Hawaii!

Maui Kaanapali Villas

This was my second stay at the Aston Maui. It was more amazing than the first. The staff is great and they remebered me from my last stay and upgraded my room to an ocean view. This is a great place if you want the resort feel but a condo with a kitchen. Best beach in Maui and nicest people towards tourists are on the west side.
