Recent guest reviews

My girlfriend and I wanted to explore Maui for our first time. And Kihei is a great central location for adventures around the island. The attention to detail, the cleanliness, and gorgeous landscaping around the property make this a very special place to stay. I would love to come here longer, it was truly a relaxing place. And the internet was fast too!

What grabbed my attention about this hotel was the fact that there was no children. It was also right across from the beach and breakfast was included. All good reasons to stay here. We had an ocean front room, literally walked across the street from our door and was on the beach. The staff were so nice and helpful. She even walked us from the front office to our room so we could find it. Room was nice and clean, and I wish we could have stayed longer.

We were spending our 37th wedding anniversary and this place was great. Quiet and serene, away from all the crowds. Beach right across from the place. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Entire Staff was excellent. Treated us so nice. Has a complimentary hot breakfast and it was quite good. Small pool and hot tub on the premises. And the premises beautifully landscaped. A very nice place to just get away and relax. Definitely would come back here.

We were treated like friends by every member of the staff. Warm and friendly, always happy to make recommendations, they even gave us chairs and blankets to view the sunset on the mountain. Our room was clean and spacious, the grounds were beautiful and we enjoyed the pool and Jacuzzi. Free breakfast every morning and no resort fees make this the best deal in Maui. Highly recommended and we'll definitely be back.

My partner and I stayed at this resort for a full week in May 2017. It was a last minute booking. The staff were friendly, helpful and made our stay very comfortable. The room we stayed in had a comfortable bed with a small kitchen. We had an ocean view and enjoyed the serenity of the gardens and birds. We will definitely stay again!!!

We had such a great time here! Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. Our room as clean, modern and totally comfortable! My boyfriend and I loved the adult only aspect of the property. It lended itself to a quiet, peaceful and relaxing vacation. We truly miss Hawaii and will definitely be back as soon as we can make it happen! Thank you for such a lovely, lovely vacation.

We rented the pool view penthouse and it was beautiful! Not only was it huge but very updated. Even though we only cooked twice, we had a beautiful gourmet kitchen. The staff was very friendly and accommodating! We will definitely stay at Kohea Kai Resort when we return to Maui!

Just stayed at Korea Kai for the first time for a good friends wedding......and will be back! EVERYONE on staff here is friendly, knowledgeable and is there for all your needs. Rooms are well cared for and offer all the essentials. Nice buffet breakfast each morning. The interior courtyard is the perfect place for a late afternoon drink with friends or family. Access to the beach is simply a walk across the street.....very nice beach and not crowded!!! Would highly recommend this if you want to stay away from the resorts and stay somewhere private and not overcrowded!

My husband and I chose Kohea Kai to stay at during our visit to Maui in early April. We were celebrating a belated honeymoon and our stay at the Kohea Kai honestly took the whole trip to another level! When we first got there, we were informed that we had been upgraded on account of the honeymoon. And trust me, “upgrade” was an understatement. When we walked into our “room”, our jaws fell to the floor. It was a two story loft style apartment space, with two separate balconies, a bedroom on the top floor, a whole kitchen and lounge area, and a 360 degree view! It made coming home after activities around Maui a true pleasure! And as if the great location and suite itself weren’t enough, the staff was just AMAZING. They were friendly, helpful, full of great advice and just wonderful people. The resort also provided us with beach towels and access to beach chairs, umbrellas and other such fun things to take with us to the beach to enhance that experience as well. They even provided us with an audio cd guide for the Road to Hana that we did on one of the days! And did I mention there was complimentary breakfast? Nothing like some fresh pineapple first thing in the morning! Do yourself a favor and choose Kohea Kai!

Recently stayed at this hotel for our Maui vacation and absolutely enjoyed the time there. The hotel has everything from coolers to find and sunblock for use as well as a beautiful garden, pool & spa.
