Lawai Beach Resort has rentals as well as time shares. We stay in the Banyan building with 2 bedrooms/2 baths. Fully furnished kitchen, living room, dining room, plus bedrooms and baths. The ocean is across the street. Best sunsets are seen from this area. Rentals through Hawaiian Time Share.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Almost all of the excellent reviews come from those staying at the Banyon or All' buildings. Try staying in a two bedroom on the bottom floor of the Coral. One bathroom for four adults, no ocean view, no washer and dryer in unit, noise from the parking valets at the restaurant across the street using Lawaii Beach parking. Did I... More

Great location. Property is a little dated but maintained very well. Even though it was very sold out it never seemed crowded or noisy. Probably designed more for adults. Staff was very friendly and helpful. A plus was we were never approached about a timeshare. Rooms were excellent size & clean.

My husband and I stayed here with our 8 month old son. Although I can't comment on whether the price is worth it (we used my husband's grandmother's timeshare to stay here), I can say we loved our time here and would return in a heartbeat. All the staff members I interacted with were friendly, smiley and helpful. The resort... More

We have returned to this lovely spot for years. Panoramic views of the ocean from most rooms. Excellent snorkeling and surfing right across the road. Rooms comfortably furnished. Kitchens well appointed. Staff gracious and helpful. Whole resort beautifully maintained.

The Lawai Beach Resort is my favorite time share to stay at. If you love snorkeling and the ocean then this place is for you. I think every room has an ocean view. Every room I have stayed in has. There are three swimming pools with hot tubs. The staff are very good at making your stay enjoyable. The best... More

My husband and I stayed at this resort the week before Thanksgiving and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The resort and its grounds are very nice. It is located directly across the street from the beach and beautiful sunsets. It is close to Koloa Town and Poipui beaches, shops and restaurants. The unit we stayed in was located on the... More

We did a timeshare exchange in December and had a nice week at Lawaii Beach Resort (how could we not, we were in Hawaii). The hotel is a very easy drive from the airport, and there is nice shopping nearby. We were assigned a two bedroom unit on the second (top) floor of the Lika Lani building. It was a... More

Well appointed and equipped suites. Complete kitchen and in suite washer and dryer. Very clean with ocean views. Close to a quaint town and access to all of the necessities. Friendly staff and quite helpful. Three pools and a short walk to the small beach. Great place to watch the sun set.
