Natural stone colors and a tranquil ambience give the Honua Kai Resort in Maui an air of luxury and intimacy. Spacious suites include gourmet kitchens filled with Bosch appliances, plus indulgent bath and body products for long hours in the tub. Head outside to enjoy the fresh air on the large veranda that overlooks the resort's private beach. On-site dining is offered at Duke's Beach House, a great venue for authentic Hawaiian cuisine prepared with fresh, local ingredients. After a day on the beach or exploring Maui, treat yourself to a thorough pampering at the Ho'ola Spa.

Awesome Suites

Why get two separate hotel rooms when you can stay here, and get a kitchen & living room as well? The suites are new with spacious kitchen & living space. Living area opens up to the ocean view. Family friendly. Staff was very helpful in recommending activities, and restaurants.

Great Spot

This is a great place, great deal. The units are apartment style, large equipped with laundry, very nice. The lobby has a bodega, very god selection of fresh sandwiches and drink snack stuff. A full coffee concession manned by staff. there's a nice restaurant near the pool as well. The beach is a very narrow strip of sand, but pretty. Having a full kitchen and normal fridge for a family can save you a fortune in hi.

Honeymoon Trip

Seriously was such a nice, relaxing honeymoon. I have been to Maui about 5 times now and LOVE the island. This was our first time staying at this resort and we loved it! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were beautiful and the room felt luxurious. We loved how Dukes restaurant was right outside and ate there multiple times during our stay. I would definitely stay here again but it is pretty pricey for us - although you DO get what you pay for so that is not the problem. Great stay!

Fantastic Maui getaway

Honua Kai far exceeded my expectations. The staff was tremendously friendly and helpful. The free water by the elevator flavored with cucumber , or lime, or pineapple everyday was awesome. The grounds are fabulous and the beach is superb. Can't lraise it enough. Location was perfect as it was remote enough for peace and quiet, yet Lahaina was a short 5 minute drive away and theres a grocery store literally right across the street (the on-property store has minimal stuff and costs much more). Would love to come back here on day!!!

Friendly Staff

The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly which is a big plus. The Duke's restaurant was conviently located downstairs overlooking the ocean but there was usually a long wait. Overall I had a great time here. I would come back again.

Great resort and condo

With amenities such s a full kitchen and four pools this resort has the best of both a hotel/resort and condo, allowing us to cook and eat in and enjoy a full resort experience as well.

Short Stay at Honua Kai

As mentioned, the amenities very good and the room was especially nice. The staff were helpful as well, but the manager was not very accommodating.

Great Family Resort

There were 6 adults in a 2br/2ba room and we were surprisingly comfortable. They provided us with a roll-away at no charge, which I think was excellent customer service! This is a very family friendly resort, so if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful vacation, this may not be the place for you. Overall, a beautiful resort!

Great family stay

Honua Kai - Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, no ocean view. Worked out great, perfect place if you have a little one. Our 5 year old loved all the water pools and feeding the Koi in the mornings. We paid full price, as we booked later in the year (not early enough). Going back next year, but booking early through VRBO to get a big discount. Downside to the trip was Delta really screwed up our flight times and seating arrangements. Will just fly Alaska from now on.
