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.

Relaxing friends reunion

Nicer finishes & larger floor plans than the Westin villas next door. Extremely clean. Booked a 2BR Resort View and was upgraded to a 2BR Ocean View!

Average

Apparently it makes a difference how you book this resort. The unit we received had many issues...too many for the rate we paid for an oceanview 2 bedroom, 2 bath. Problems with the air conditioning, oven, dryer and freezer. Oceanview meant a sliver of ocean if you positioned yourself in one corner of the balcony. We were very disappointed.

Nice and Beautiful

It felt very welcoming. When you first walk in it takes your breath awary with the view of the ocean. The room was very nice.

Weekday getaway

Wonderful amenities at this resort. Would definitely stay again! The resort needs clearer street signs in the front entrance area directing you to parking, Duke's restaurant etc.

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.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

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.

Wonderful!!!!

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!
