Rising high over the mellow shores of Kaanapali Beach, Aston at the Whaler is a condominium with scenic views of hot pink flora and vibrant greenery, or the dazzling Pacific Ocean just outside its balconies. Enjoy the complimentary fresh pineapple that comes with each room, sip a cup of locally-grown coffee in the studio kitchens, or take a quick trip down the street to sample Maui-style barefoot dining at the Hula Grill. Surfing, snorkeling, or playing tennis are all available on the hotel grounds, but with a blissful jet spa and outdoor grilling area downstairs, guests may feel perfectly fine doing very little at all.

Neighborhood
From the Aston at The Whaler, take a stroll around Kaanapali; you're not only within easy walking distance of great restaurants, but the mall and whaling museum at Whalers Village are also nearby. Kaanapali Beach is known for whale-watching and calm, paddling waters, while the historic former capital Lahaina is a short drive down the coast. Lahaina is locally famous for its Friday 'Art Nights', when galleries keep their doors open late, and visitors can talk with local artists while live musicians play. Local surfer hotspots Kapalua and Honolua to the north of Kaanapali beckon those fond of diving or exploring underwater worlds by scuba or snorkel.
Hints and tips
Choose condos away from the Whalers Village side of the resort to enjoy a quieter stay, and if you'd like a more expansive view, opt for one that includes a full wrap-around balcony.

Dining out in Lahaina? Try Fleetwood's on Front Street and you might find you're sipping pre-dinner cocktails in good company, since Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac fame owns the restaurant.

fery family friendly

I had a 1 bedroom suite. It was very spacious and comfortable. I liked the fact that the bathroom was separate from the vanity area and there was a sink with a long counter. There was plenty of closet space. In fact there was two large closets. I had a view of the ocean and the mountains and golf course, and the pool. The big thing is the location. You are right on the Kaanapali beach.

Good value for the dollar

The Whaler has a great location. The room was nice and we liked that the vanity area was separate form the shower area.We felt the cleaning of the room was off abit and we had to remind them to refresh our coffee supply.

Would do it again.

Had a great time at the Whaler. We upgraded our room to a l bdrm and 2bh. Was well worth the it, because our view was over the garden,pool and we could see the ocean from both bedroom, living room and balcony. The only thing I think the Whaler is missing is a restaurant/bar. Yes, we would return.

great location

The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach was perfectly located close to Lahaina and all points of interst. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our only real complaint was the king-size bed in our room. It was really 2 twins pushed together with no seam filler. The beach was right outside the door. We had a great ocean view.

A GREAT VISUAL

The location of the Whaler is perfect! Every condo has a terrific view. The balcony was spacious and made the one bedroom seem huge! The facility is beautiful, clean, convenient. The staff is friendly and helpful. Having the choice of eating in with a fully workable kitchen gave us a wonderful, relaxing option of not dealing with crowded restaurants.

Take a short walk and you have a snorkeling beach, a place to eat, shop, or just people-watch. A fantastic location near everything!
