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.

Best vacation ever

Hanua Kai was the best, It was great having a condo with a complete kitchen to be able to cook some meals. The pool was great and always able to get a lounge chair. Staff was very helpful. Came home with all clean clothes due to having a washer and dryer in the condo. Already planning another trip there in February. We won't even consider staying any where else:)

Hawaii at it's finest. Our best trip yet!

The hotel is gorgeous and clean. It felt more "authentic Hawaii" with protected grounds of natural plant life right off the beach. Pools are more blue lagoon style rather than typical pools. We have been to Maui 4 times and this was our favorite trip, and a big reason for that is due to Honua Kai. We have stayed at Marriott and Four Seasons in past. Awesome terraces with full retractable glass wall. Great market inside hotel with variety of gourmet food and great coffee. It is about 8-10 minute drive from Whaler Village. It was handy having all appliances. Highly recommend upgrading to partial ocean or full ocean view. We woke up to huge rainbow over ocean our first morning. Duke's is phenomenal for breakfast! This resort will have it all when spa is complete.

Honua Kai Resort & Spa - great for families

After searching a long time for the right hotel on Maui that still had a price affordable to me I found the Honua Kai. I stayed 1 week with my family (wife and 2 kids) and really enjoyed our stay there. The hotel is very nice, very new but still has the Hawaiian flair. The kitchen is great and well equipped. The pools are great and the entire complex is a Hawaiian dream. The beach is also awesome. Just by a snorkling set (in the supermarket across the street) and swim a bit out into the sea. You will find yourself swimming in an aquarium with coralls and all kinds of fishes. Bottom line i highly recommend this hotel. Especially when you have kids this will be a great place to stay.

Wonderful!

Beautiful new resort with large spacious and well appointed rooms, friendly staff, and amenities that rival other brand name resorts/hotels, all for a reasonable price. I would definitely recommend Honua Kai, a great resort for both couples and families.

Two weeks with friends

Twp couples sharing a 2 bed 2 bath unit couldn't have been much more comfortable. Enjoying a mai tai on the lanai, watching the plams sway in the trade winds while a sailboat glides past on the sea beyond, yet so quiet and immaculately maintained despite the scurry of guests. The facilities were so well-conceived, the staff so friendly and responsive, the feeling quentisential Hawai'ian. Each room was a santuary - we couldn't tell if the other couple was awake or not, even from the common areas. The only difficulty was in the green appliandces, which took effort to make function well - especially the clothes dryer. Yet, the household staff cordially helped us cope.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

On Dickenson Street in Lahaina is a business, Take Home Maui, that facilitates ordering pineapples and more for taking home. You can meet your package at the airport, fully inspected, and it checks in for free to fly home as luggage! They also have a deli bar for lunches and snacks.

This hotel was amazingly beautiful, staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The grounds were beautiful...my only complaint was there were too many small children in the pools...it would be nice if there was an adult only pool!

Excellent stay!

This is a world class resort. We stayed at a two bedroom condo and although not ocean front, we saw the Maui mountains everyday. The sun rising over the mountain is a must see and then you can go walk to the beach to watch the beautiful sunset on Kaanapali. Everything in this hotel is immaculate and everyone in our party loved this hotel. Believe all of the reviews you read on this website and travel advisor. A huge Mahalo to all of the reviewers that led me to picking this hotel and I look forward to saying aloha to the friendly staff sometime in the near future again.

Go for the fish tacos near the ABC store. It is literally a house with a grill that is posing as a taco shop but well worth the money.

Great hotel. Though when you call for a problem with an item in the room, takes more than hour to get a replacement. So order if you are not in a rush to get it right away. Happened twice.. the second time, we couldn't wait anymore and left.(The hair dryer didn't work prior to dinner reservation, and couldn't wait anymore) Watch out for the strict towel guy with the sarcastic jokes in the pool area. Lol. Would have gotten mad if i had a bad day. Other than those minor issues. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

What a great experience!

Rooms were clean, spacious and, most importantly, BEAUTIFUL. The hotel grounds were amazing including all pools, courtyards and lawns. The staff was very gracious, helpful and friendly. Legitimately a perfect place to stay.
