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.

Location

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.

Unforgetable famly trip

The Royal Lahaina Resort was amazing! An incredible view, big clean rooms, excellent service , and a friendly staff. The restaurant is fairly priced and the food quality and beverages are excellent. The grounds are well kept and there small coffee/ice cream shop is worth the visit. The beach is private and was my favorite of the 4 beaches we visited during our vacation. we got a room with a 75 view of the ocean on the 10th floor and it awe inspiring. Good place if you have kids also!

Great all around experience!

Great resort, close to awesome snorkeling in both directions of the beach from the hotel. Big, clean rooms, nice balconies with excellent views. Shopping within walking distance at Whalers village. Nice open lounge, bar area. The hotel is clean and very spacious the surrounding grounds of the property are also very spacious and open, i'm sure the Westin is a nice hotel up the road but it's right on top of the large shopping area (Whalers Village) so expect lots of walking traffic and shoppers in the immediate vicinity all around the Westin, if that's your thing cool but if you want more seclusion and a laid back feel when you are at your hotel then stay here! Would highly recommend.

honeymoon

We visited Maui on our honeymoon and stayed at the Royal Lahaina . Our room needed to be changed due to a leaking bathroom shower stall . Our new room was very pleasant and clean with a nice view of the ocean . We did however have one episode where our room was never cleaned by the housekeeping staff and no towels etc were left for us . When we called to report this they promptly delivered what we needed to the room . The staff was courteous , helpful and friendly . Don't go to the Luau. It was unorganized . A lengthy in line wait to get in . Very crowded and not worth the money although the show itself was good . Other luaus on the island are much better . The parking spaces are very small and difficult . Especially if one person parks slightly over their line . It's very frustrating parking especially at night because in addition to small spaces the luau is also going on and those spaces are used by people who are not staying at the hotel. All of this frustration and a fee of 10 dollars a day added on to the bill to park your own car , we found to be ridiculous . You can have your car valet parked at 15 dollars a day . The food and drinks are good but expect to pay a higher price . The grounds were beautiful and we really did enjoy our stay in spite of the parking and housekeeping issues which were in the scheme of things more of an inconvenience than anything else and did not ruin our time . We would return . Maui is our very favorite place and Lahaina itself is great ! .

Worth for just the Beach access

We stayed in the partial ocean view rooms in the 8th floor. The beach is wonderful. The view/sunset/walks were just awesome. the pools are good. Wifi was good. Service was just ok. The staff gave us a free photo for our anniversary. The rooms were always clean. Nothing to complain about. But a little over priced rooms considering we need to pay parking.

Great Resort

If you like resort vacationing, this may be the place for you. They have a fine restaurant, sandwich shop and room service. We were not disappointed with any of our selections. The staff was friendly and took great care of us. We would definitely go back.
