Wonderful accommodations in an ideal location to Hana. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to an off site apartment. For a active town, it was quite quiet & an easy walk to all the restaurants & shops.

We enjoyed our stay in Nalu Kai Lodge. Very simple but comfortable room, great location and great people working at the lodge. Coffee store right next to lodge and walking to everything in Paia. Will be back next year. :-) Thank you.

Unique lodge

Would recommend Mon, Feb 24, 2014
We enjoyed our stay at Nalu Kai Lodge in the heart of Piai. Rooms are just as advertised....perfectly clean, cool to sleep even w/o AC, small but serviceable, and one to three blocks from intersting restaurants, shops, and beach. Close to drive to Hana and to Haleakolea. I loved the outdoor area, both grassy and lanai. Quite charming. Felt very safe there, even walkimg at night.

Shopping hint

Mana Foods is a natural food grocery store abou two blocks away. Has great food, although expensive side.

Bed and shower

Would not recommend Sun, Feb 16, 2014
Desk was poorly attended, if you could find someone at all. Parking was also an issue...there isn't any. Room was very small and pretty spartan. Room had 2 twin beds, no TV, np alarm/clock, no coffee maker, no hair dryer, etc. Okay if you just want a place to sleep and shower, but if you'll be spending time around "resort", I wouldn't recommended this place. In it's favor, there are multiple quality restaurants within easy walking distance.

Cute and quiet getaway

Would recommend Fri, Jun 15, 2012
This small getaway is tucked away on the main street of Paia where you wouldn't know it was there if you didn't know it was there. The room was small but adequate. There wasn't a coffee pot in the room but there were several coffee shops within close walking distance. There was no TV either, but the room is more for sleeping in than hanging out in. For hanging out, there were lounge chairs, a hammock, and a BBQ area in a really cute common area.
