2525 Kaanapali Parkway, Kaanapali Beach, Maui, Hawaii

Our Thoughts on Kaanapali Beach Hotel
For the right person, this is a very special place on Kaanapali Beach. Kaanapali Beach Hotel is an older property which really does capture the spirit of old Hawaii and weaves that into our modern world in a very pleasing way.  The grounds of the hotel are really lovely with wide, open swathes of lawn punctuated by tropical flowering gardens and beautiful well-established trees.  The rooms, some of which have been modernised, are mainly still presented in a charming, old-fashioned way with generous bed headboards, carpeted floor, established-looking furniture and colourful soft furnishings.  Everything about the rooms is spotless.  Each room has an individual balcony or patio along the front of the room and while the balcony isn’t huge, it’s plenty big enough for a coffee table and a couple of outdoor chairs – ideal for sitting, snacking and sipping. We offer both a room-only and a room and breakfast tariff and are happy to quote on both options. 

The highest room blocks have only 6 levels, which, in Hawaiian resort terms makes them “low-rise”.  Three of the four blocks are serviced by lifts and one (the Molokai), which only has 3 levels, does not have a lift, so is a walk-up block.  

This hotel is known as “Hawaii’s Most Hawaiian Hotel” and they certainly deliver on this.  You get the impression that the staff genuinely want guests to enjoy a real Hawaiian holiday experience and that they go out of their way to make this happen.  You will find not only a genuine friendly attitude throughout the hotel, but that this is offered without guests feeling there is an underlying pressure to buy something.  As an example of this, the hotel offers a daily “Ohana (family) Welcome Breakfast” which includes an all-you-can-eat buffet with live Hawaiian entertainment and where staff inform guests of the best ways to enjoy Maui. This is a great way to start a stay on Maui and there is no hint of a time-share selling presentation which can often mar such occasions elsewhere.

For a 3-Star property, Kaanapali Beach Hotel offers a long list of complimentary activities which we will repeat here for you. In addition to these activities, there is a daily complimentary hula show guests can either watch at the Tiki Courtyard or enjoy listening to from the balcony of any courtyard-facing room.

What Kaanapali Beach Hotel Say About Themselves

Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel, fronting world-famous Kāʻanapali Beach, is officially recognized as Hawai’i’s Most Hawaiian Hotel. Here on 11 acres of tropical gardens, our guests can relax and truly experience aloha at its best. Cultural classes offered daily that include hula lessons, 'ukulele classes, cultural garden walks, Hawaiian language as well as the free nightly hula shows are just some of the ways for our guests to immerse themselves in our culture. Romantic and enchanting, our hotel is the perfect getaway for couples. However, for those travelling as a family the true highlight is that kids up to 17 yrs stay free!

Resort Fee
As at the time of this review, the hotel does not charge a resort fee.  However, they do charge for car parks and $1.50 per day for use of the in-room safe.

In addition to the complimentary activities, there is also a raft of other events and offers which guests may enjoy.  One we wish to highlight is the famous Sunday Champagne Brunch at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel which is a local tradition and a favourite of locals and visitors alike.

Summing up; this place is different in many ways from the other beachfront properties we offer on Kaanapali Beach.  It offers a genuine old-fashioned Hawaiian experience combined with everything that modern Maui has to offer from a 3-star value base. Enjoy the spacious grounds where it seems that it’s never difficult to find a place to enjoy the sun and the tropical gardens and all this facing one of Maui’s best beaches.

Your Accommodation Options
Most rooms at Kaanapali Beach Hotel are the same size at just on 40m2 and apart from two bedding options (2 Queen Double Beds or 1 King Bed plus a Single Day Bed) the differences in price all reflect the position of the room in the various buildings. Every room is air-conditioned and has a private lanai (balcony), a mini fridge, coffee maker, in-room safe, clock radio, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, telephone with voicemail and flat-screen TV.  Bathroom amenities are provided.  Most room bathrooms are compact, very well maintained and normally come with a bath/shower combo.

Of the 4 accommodation wings, three – Kauai Wing, Lanai Wing and Maui Wing are 6-level blocks, each with lift access and one wing – the Molokai Wing which is a three floor walk-up block. These blocks form a three-sided “U” shaped border to a large central courtyard which contains beautiful lawns and gardens and the hotel’s central swimming pool. The open side of the courtyard faces the long beach frontage which this hotel enjoys.
