Never again. The literal barrage of kiosk salespeople pushing their ointments, creams and lotions was truly ridiculous. A 20 minute ordeal just trying to get to our lunch destination. People yelling at you to come over because they wanted to give you something. We were sucked into a lengthy presentation when we first walked in because we were not aware... More

Nice little shopping place with an assortment of restaurants and shops. You can get 3 hour parking by purchasing something at one of the shops (otherwise parking is kind of expensive). Right next to the beach and although you are not suppose to, many people park here and then stroll down the beach making a food purchase (one place had... More

This isn't a place that you need to go out of your way to visit. It's just a mall with the ubiquitous brands all are familiar with. If you need an ABC Store in Kaanapali then this is convenient as long as you don't mind paying the expensive parking. Hula Grill and Leilani's Restaurants are at the end of the... More

Another soul-less shopping mall full of global brands and a nod to a few local crafts. Horrid. And it's right on the beach. My idea of hell. But some people seem to love it.

Great place to shop but parking is very expensive so make sure you get validated. The ABC store was very helpful in buying souvenirs. There is a great mix of tourist and upscale shops.

I've been coming to Whaler's Village for years when I come to Maui. I've seen many of the shops come and go as well as Maui Fish and Pasta just this month. The Village is undergoing a renovation so not sure what to expect. Leilani's still has the best music and the only restaurant left with a happy hour. Yes,... More

Definitely not cheap shopping, and you have to pay for parking. But some good shopping if you're not looking for inexpensive souvenirs or 5 dollar tshirts. Nice beach there, but more useful to the loads of hotels nearby than to the general public. No change rooms if you're not staying there, short of using a public bathroom.

Conveniently located in the middle of the beach side of the Kaanapali resort, this shopping mall offers a good variety of shopping and eating choices. There is a good blend of high and mid-range stores. From Tommy Bahama, Tori Richards, Martin and Macarthur, Louis Vuitton,Totally Hawaiian, Swarovski, Na Hoku and Brighton to Blue Ginger, Volcom, Honolua Surf, Billabong, Quicksilver, Malibu... More

Average outdoor mall with entertainment. There are some great restaurants just outside the mall, however. Worth a trip to go to Leilani's.

We have been coming to Kaanapali Beach for decades, and have watched this outdoor Mall change and improve. It the mid 2000s, there were several fine art galleries, but the recession of 2008 caused them to disappear (most galleries are now in Lahaina). Today the Whaler's Village Mall offers a broad range of shopping, from the mini market ABC store,... More
