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.

Did Not Meet Expectations

The Honua Kai was a very decent condo-hotel the views were spectacular, the rooms were acceptable, and pools were nice. However, The Honua Kai did not have a vibrant vacation atmosphere. Also, only having one bar/restaurant on property was a major downside. I would definitely stay somewhere else next time.

Awesome time.

Awesome time in Maui. Dukes bartenders are great!!! The girls seating you, I can do without!!!! They keep sending you to another stand and are clueless. Good thing the bartenders make up for it. After 12 days it got on my nerves. Other than that, the place is great. Very clean, everyone is very nice. They also could use more pool chairs.

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.

Amazing!!!!!!

We've stayed multiple places in Maui, but Honua Kai has them all beat!! Staff was welcoming, you can't beat the location, multiple pools to choose from, and if it were to rain who cares because the condo was incredible! The pictures on their website are a true presentation of the resort. We can't wait to go back!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the mile walk on the Boardwalk to Whalers village, but take a bag with your towel so you can relax on the beach on your way back.

Paradise Found

This was our third trip to Maui and our first stay at the Honua Kai resort. I have to say I truly think it's paradise on earth. It is SO beautiful, inside and out. Our room was modern and comfortable with every amenity. The grounds were breathtaking with miles of walking paths. The most beautiful beach in the world was just steps away. The pools and hot tubs were refreshing, clean and BIG! Dukes restaurant is onsite; we enjoyed a memorable sunset birthday dinner there, with enough leftovers for a meal the next day! If there was just one downside its that the wifi is pretty slow, but hey, one doesn't come to Paradise to check email, eh?? I will recommend this resort to my family and friends, and hope to come back soon. I love you Honua Kai!!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Ask for a partial ocean view room. It's worth the extra cost. One third of your view will feature the ocean with the other two-thirds looking over the lush grounds. It's just as good as the full-ocean view, in my opinion, without paying the extra price.

Great hotel for families

This hotel is fantastic for families. The rooms are apartment style with a full kitchen. Lots of room to chill. My wife and I cooked a bit after needing a break from eating out constantly. That said, there is nice restaurant on location for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and beer o'clock. The hotel also has a spa, fitness room, coffee shop, and 3 pools (i think). Not sure what else you would want. I would recommend staying at this hotel only if you have a family. I didn't see many younger couples there without kids. The only other con is that the beach isn't great. It's not what you would expect for Hawaii anyways. In conclusion, great hotel and great staff, but not what I wanted for a honeymoon.
