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.

A great Vacation

Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. No waiting all day to have room cleaned. Walking paths were easy to follow and in great condition. Very handy Beach restaurant, good food and again friendly staff. Two beautiful swimming pools and hot tubs. Grounds were very well kept..Did I mention that the Golfing was fantastic. Good value for an older but well kept complex.. Will be returning again next year..Mahalo

The Villas

i found that directions to the beach were almost non-existent. It is within walking distance if you go behind the the cafe by the pool. If you go along the path where the "beach walk" signs point, you just go to a bunch of shops. Other than not finding beach access right away I had a good time.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

I did not know that the Major Banks did not exist on the Island. If you want to save some ATM fees use your credit card or take cash with you. Also I am guessing that importing makes food more expensive. So find a grocery store for some of your meals. Safeway has a few stores. Though I did find that fruits (other than Pineapples) can be expensive.

Beautiful condo but poor ocean vie

While the condo was immaculate and beautiful, I requested ocean view, and expected a lanai on the ocean. This one has just a "corner peak" at the ocean, and that is not at all comparable, especially when compared to my previous stays in Maui when ocean view was claimed. I felt like I was ripped off. The remote didn't work for the TV and there was only video, not CD player capacity. That's so outdated!!!

Pleasant stay

Booked a hotel room and they gave me a upgrade to a kitchenette. The rooms Aston manages seem to mostly be in the back of the resort and get some road noise from Hwy 30 and the leaf blower brigade from the ajacent hotel, starting up by 6:30 AM. Condos with beach view seem to be privately owned and rented by the owners. Great beach location.

Cannery Mall is only a couple miles from the villas. Prices for souvenirs or stuff you have forgotten/need are economical compared to the Whaler's Village. There's a grocery store in the same lot.
