The Royal Lahaina Resort is a family-owned complex of traditional tower hotel rooms and plantation-style beach huts beneath swaying coconut palms. Thanks to the lush 27-acre property size, there's nothing to interfere with views of those mesmerizing ocean waves and neighboring island Molokai, as you snooze in a wicker chair by the sea. Golf enthusiasts have access to two 18-hole championship courses at the Kaanapali Golf Resort, while nature-lovers will be thrilled with many whale-watching opportunities. At night, guests can indulge in Hawaiian history by joining in with a traditional "Myths of Maui" luau, and let the sound of Polynesian drums, the dazzle of colored costumes, and the intense fire knife dance initiate them into island life.

Neighborhood
Located on the tip of the renowned Kaanapali Beach, up the coast from Maui resort Lahaina and less than five miles from Kapalua West Maui Airport (JHM), the Royal Lahaina is down-shore from the more rowdy boardwalk scene, but only a 15-minute stroll from the restaurants and shopping of Whaler’s Village. The hotel is also just north of Black Rock, a large lava formation which serves as a local landmark for cliff-diving and snorkeling fans.
Hints and tips
To book the most secluded getaway, choose the Royal Beach House, which provides exclusive beach access, plus a private pool and hot tub.

For active types, fantastic snorkeling is available in Table Reef, near the front of Kahekili Beach Park.

Policies and fees

honeymoon

We visited Maui on our honeymoon and stayed at the Royal Lahaina . Our room needed to be changed due to a leaking bathroom shower stall . Our new room was very pleasant and clean with a nice view of the ocean . We did however have one episode where our room was never cleaned by the housekeeping staff and no towels etc were left for us . When we called to report this they promptly delivered what we needed to the room . The staff was courteous , helpful and friendly . Don't go to the Luau. It was unorganized . A lengthy in line wait to get in . Very crowded and not worth the money although the show itself was good . Other luaus on the island are much better . The parking spaces are very small and difficult . Especially if one person parks slightly over their line . It's very frustrating parking especially at night because in addition to small spaces the luau is also going on and those spaces are used by people who are not staying at the hotel. All of this frustration and a fee of 10 dollars a day added on to the bill to park your own car , we found to be ridiculous . You can have your car valet parked at 15 dollars a day . The food and drinks are good but expect to pay a higher price . The grounds were beautiful and we really did enjoy our stay in spite of the parking and housekeeping issues which were in the scheme of things more of an inconvenience than anything else and did not ruin our time . We would return . Maui is our very favorite place and Lahaina itself is great ! .

Awesome vacation

The hotel was overall amazing. I had a beautiful view of the ocean and every morning I took a walk along the beach walk that was breathtaking in view. I had a different impression of what a cabana was so that was a little disappointing but I should have asked more questions to clarify. I didn't rent a car and that posed some struggles like quite a fee to get to and from the airport as well as some timing issues getting to Lahaina. Overall amazing vacation.

Family Vacation

This was a very nice place to stay. However, it seemed expensive for what you got. I would stay here again, but I would need a better price.

Worth for just the Beach access

We stayed in the partial ocean view rooms in the 8th floor. The beach is wonderful. The view/sunset/walks were just awesome. the pools are good. Wifi was good. Service was just ok. The staff gave us a free photo for our anniversary. The rooms were always clean. Nothing to complain about. But a little over priced rooms considering we need to pay parking.

Do not recommend.

Other than the location, nothing really to speak about. Old cottages with outdated and unpleasant smelly cottages. Not worth to get ocean front cottages as the garden covers direct ocean views. Extremely overpriced. I had to call up front desk multiple times for bulbs not working, brown muddy water from the faucets, no hot water to name few.
