Why We Love It

  • Rated AAA 4-Diamond and named to Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List in 2014 
  • Unwind on a spacious private lanai in a condo-style unit with a modern, high-end kitchen
  • Tucked along a secluded stretch of beach, three pools and four hot tubs overlook the ocean
  • Kids will be well-entertained with the slide, lazy river and kids pool

"Favorite with residents and locals alike" -- Frommer's

Honua Kai Resort & Spa, a AAA 4-Diamond hotel, is a calmer and quieter option to some of Maui's neighboring bustling resorts. It sits on a stretch of golden sand on Kaanapali's north beach, which tends to be less crowded than main Kaanapali just to the south, but be prepared that Maui's entire west coast can get windy.

Named to the Conde Nast Traveler 2014 Gold List, the beachfront hotel features lush landscaping that practically runs right into the open-air lobby, with tile floors the color of sand flanked by intricate hand-carved teak beams. All rooms are suites and on the large side (studios start at 590 square feet, and the three-bedrooms are 2,600 square feet). Glass-paneled lanais border the ocean-view rooms and are worth paying extra for. 

Pick up a towel from the front desk (housekeeping, room service and a concierge desk are also included) and grab a poolside mai tai from Duke's Beach House while the kids hit the waterslide. 

Aloha Hour (daily from 3-5 p.m.) at Duke's is a fun spot for eating out and mingling, and the view from there is "amazing" according to Fodor's. If you're in a hurry, grab an acai bowl or gourmet sandwich from Aina Gourmet Market (open daily 7 a.m. - 9 p.m. in the lobby), which serves locally sourced items that change based on what's in season.
