My family and I find the Luana Kai is a great cozy resort in a terrific location. We enjoy being close to the food, retail services, and the restaurant services of Kihei and Wailea. The resort is located right on a municipal park abutting the ocean. This open space is precious for playing with your family on the numerous tennis... More

Just spent six days at the Luana Kai. Kihei is a bit removed from the village like atmosphere and conveniences of Wailea and Kailua though there is a supermarket nearby. Our apartment was on the top floor, facing the beach on the furtherest edge of the sea facing complex. We had family members in three other apartments and ours was... More

This is our 2nd time staying at Luana Kai and not the last. We stayed in the same unit as last year and also booked 5 additional units for our family (we came from Seattle to get married). All the units we reserved had a/c (specified at time of booking), were clean, fully equipped with kitchens, and comfortable. Most of... More

I would definitely come stay here again and highly recommend it to everyone, especially those with young kids. We had a ground floor unit and it wasn't newly updated or anything but it was spotless and everything worked great - no bugs or anything haha. What I loved the most was the big property for the kids to run around... More

We stayed at the Luana Kai in April of 2014 on our 2nd trip to Maui, and we only WISHED we would have known about it the first time! Our condo was 3rd floor overlooking the pool and was very spacious for 2 couples. What I also liked was that there was always ample parking near the stairs to our... More

Luana Kai was an affordable and comfortable base for our Maui stay. Our unit D205 was clean, well furnished, and fully equipped with a wonderful lanai for eating meals outdoors and watching sunsets. The beach out front was wonderful for long walks at low tide or finding a shady place to sit and read, watch the waves or a passing... More

A great facility with all the right touches. Spacious unit. Gorgeous views on the ocean, well kept grounds, central location, business services if you need them, and the friendliest hosts on Maui! This is the place to stay when visiting Hawaii.

This is a great resort, however the location isn't. My review is on the resort, not the condo we rented. It is the old "you get what you pay for". Yes, the water is in front of this resort (about 100m away). But, about all you can do is look at it or walk along the beach. It isn't a... More

First thing we noticed; The cleaning crew for these condos needs a lesson or two. Every little nook has grunge; under cabinets, light fixtures and appliances! Second awakening; Dogs everywhere......not a problem with the dogs but owners dont pick up the dogs mess and no one around from this resort does either! Third thing and the biggest problem; COCKROACHES! We... More

This was a tastefully updated unit with granite counter tops and newer upper end appliances. The shower and bathroom facilities also very good, new and clean. In suite laundry and wifi was a huge selling point for me. No air conditioning but using the curtains and the ceiling fans was adequate. The pool area was very nice with kitchen appliances... More
