Unique lodge

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.

Bed and shower

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

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.
