The Royal Lahaina Resort is a family-owned complex of traditional tower hotel rooms and plantation-style beach huts beneath swaying coconut palms. Thanks to the lush 27-acre property size, there's nothing to interfere with views of those mesmerizing ocean waves and neighboring island Molokai, as you snooze in a wicker chair by the sea. Golf enthusiasts have access to two 18-hole championship courses at the Kaanapali Golf Resort, while nature-lovers will be thrilled with many whale-watching opportunities. At night, guests can indulge in Hawaiian history by joining in with a traditional "Myths of Maui" luau, and let the sound of Polynesian drums, the dazzle of colored costumes, and the intense fire knife dance initiate them into island life.

Neighborhood
Located on the tip of the renowned Kaanapali Beach, up the coast from Maui resort Lahaina and less than five miles from Kapalua West Maui Airport (JHM), the Royal Lahaina is down-shore from the more rowdy boardwalk scene, but only a 15-minute stroll from the restaurants and shopping of Whaler’s Village. The hotel is also just north of Black Rock, a large lava formation which serves as a local landmark for cliff-diving and snorkeling fans.
Hints and tips
To book the most secluded getaway, choose the Royal Beach House, which provides exclusive beach access, plus a private pool and hot tub.

For active types, fantastic snorkeling is available in Table Reef, near the front of Kahekili Beach Park.

Can't Beat the location

Obviously you can't beat the location, as far as the hotel goes, it is unbelievably nice, clean, friendly staff, only thing I would change is free WiFi, but when that is your biggest complaint you have a keeper on your hands.

Location!

Beautiful view, beautiful beach, less congested area than most of Lahaina. Deluxe Partial Ocean view is perfect. Heard the Luau each night (fun, 1.5 hours of music). Did not eat at the restaurant - no healthy or organic options available (not unusual for a tourist place) Brought in groceries ((Down to Earth or the Farmers Market shop in Kahana are great options) and saved a bundle on eating out. Peaceful spot, gorgeous beach. Parking is additional $10/day.

Nothing Royal about this place

I would not recommend this hotel to a friend. First of all, the hotel is really old and it seems there has not been any upgrades to it recently. Secondly, the room was in the same shape, including the bathroom floor and bath tub (disgusting!). Please take my advice and avoid this hotel if possible. Glad I only stayed here a few nights. Quickly changed hotels.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

Whaler's Village is NOT a short 10min walk as the internet has said. Not too much there, either, for shopping purpose. I would go to a larger shopping area, to make it worth your experience.

Quiet location almost private beach Wonderful

We could snorkel right in front and just north a short walk Also the evening dinner hour had a Hawaiian guitar and single dancer accompany in a low volume very relaxing setting. Very low key and romantic. Food was good kahuna salas with mahi. Only thing missing was a bistro setting as all meals were essentially 25 dollars including breakfast if you did not want a small item. Example one half of a papaya was 6dollars alone so go agHead and buy the breakfast buffet for $23. Also if you arrive during the luau use the valet.

Great location and staff, rooms not so much

We stayed here for a night since we landed late and chose a cottage room. The hotel has beach access to one of the best beaches in Maui. The hotel staff at check-in were friendly and courteous. The room however was bad. We had picked the cottage since it sounded like it would be isolated and quiet. The cottage is not a solo unit but is a two story building that is divided into four rooms. The walls were paper thin and we could hear the neighbor listening to TV until midnight. There was no relief after midnight either as the sprinklers go on throughout the night until 1 or 2 am. Then the birds start making noise around 5 am. The rooms were older and a surprising contrast from the lobby area, which was very nice. Maybe the hotel rooms above the lobby would have been nicer.
