Natural stone colors and a tranquil ambience give the Honua Kai Resort in Maui an air of luxury and intimacy. Spacious suites include gourmet kitchens filled with Bosch appliances, plus indulgent bath and body products for long hours in the tub. Head outside to enjoy the fresh air on the large veranda that overlooks the resort's private beach. On-site dining is offered at Duke's Beach House, a great venue for authentic Hawaiian cuisine prepared with fresh, local ingredients. After a day on the beach or exploring Maui, treat yourself to a thorough pampering at the Ho'ola Spa.

fantastic getaway! going back on July 4th

It's a perfect place for staycation! Close to Golf Courses for my golf fanatic husband and his friends. Close to the shopping mall at Whaler's Village. Enjoyed my walks with a friend around the resort and swimming pools all over to stay cool and enjoy. Overall, we're going back to Honua Kai Resort for sure!

Did Not Meet Expectations

The Honua Kai was a very decent condo-hotel the views were spectacular, the rooms were acceptable, and pools were nice. However, The Honua Kai did not have a vibrant vacation atmosphere. Also, only having one bar/restaurant on property was a major downside. I would definitely stay somewhere else next time.

Awesome time.

Awesome time in Maui. Dukes bartenders are great!!! The girls seating you, I can do without!!!! They keep sending you to another stand and are clueless. Good thing the bartenders make up for it. After 12 days it got on my nerves. Other than that, the place is great. Very clean, everyone is very nice. They also could use more pool chairs.

best vacation ever

Very nice resort, staff very helpful and accommodating. Very clean facilities. Pool is awesome, kids would love it. Beach is rocky, but that is the same story for many of the resorts at kaanapali. Beach shoes are a must for adults and kids alike. The little bakery store in the resort is way over priced, 16 $ for coconut water is unheard of even in Alaska. Resort staff very helpful in planning activities. Met many families who concur, Honua kai is an awesome resort overall for families with kids up to early teens.

Great Spot

This is a great place, great deal. The units are apartment style, large equipped with laundry, very nice. The lobby has a bodega, very god selection of fresh sandwiches and drink snack stuff. A full coffee concession manned by staff. there's a nice restaurant near the pool as well. The beach is a very narrow strip of sand, but pretty. Having a full kitchen and normal fridge for a family can save you a fortune in hi.

Fantastic Maui getaway

Honua Kai far exceeded my expectations. The staff was tremendously friendly and helpful. The free water by the elevator flavored with cucumber , or lime, or pineapple everyday was awesome. The grounds are fabulous and the beach is superb. Can't lraise it enough. Location was perfect as it was remote enough for peace and quiet, yet Lahaina was a short 5 minute drive away and theres a grocery store literally right across the street (the on-property store has minimal stuff and costs much more). Would love to come back here on day!!!

Honeymoon Trip

Seriously was such a nice, relaxing honeymoon. I have been to Maui about 5 times now and LOVE the island. This was our first time staying at this resort and we loved it! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were beautiful and the room felt luxurious. We loved how Dukes restaurant was right outside and ate there multiple times during our stay. I would definitely stay here again but it is pretty pricey for us - although you DO get what you pay for so that is not the problem. Great stay!

Friendly Staff

The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly which is a big plus. The Duke's restaurant was conviently located downstairs overlooking the ocean but there was usually a long wait. Overall I had a great time here. I would come back again.
