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.

First night in Maui starts off with a bang!

We booked the Royal Lahaina Resort for our little family- me, my husband, and our boy/girl twins. Years ago, we had thought about going to Maui for our honeymoon and considered RLR at that time. I'm SO happy that we pulled the trigger to stay here. Driving in was beautiful, the grounds are well kept, the security person, Keanu, was our first point of contact and we were warmly welcomed. Then, we were welcomed and taken care of by the valet staff. Check-in was a breeze and took about 3 minutes. Last minute, we decided to bring my mother, and the room we were given was more like a suite, and fit us all with room to spare. While the cottages aren't the most updated rooms available, they were perfect! We enjoyed the pool, the beach, the sunset, the people. It was incredible. We only stayed one night (we were gifted a timeshare in Kihei by my grandma) but will absolutely stay again, if given the chance! Do not hesitate, for the money and location alone, it is worth it!

Great experience for family

The Royal Lahaina is located on Kaanapali beach and has everything you need for a beach vacation right on the resort. The hotel is being renovated but this did not bother us at all. Food at the restaurant is great. Breakfast buffet is good value.

Always a great time

We stay at this hotel everytime we go to Maui. This hotel is the best, it is steps away from the ocean, beautiful grounds. A true hwaiian hotel.

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.
