Room was beautifully furnished, staff was great and the setting is gorgeous. You have to have a Maui coffee from the coffee shop in the lobby....the beans are grown about 1/2 mile up the mountain from the resort! No complaints, nothing but praise.

Honua Kai is fantastic place to book when staying in Maui for a long-ish vacation. The units are large and comfortable, the washer-dryer came in very handy with daily trips to the beach, kitchen was equipped with all appliances and utensils you could possibly need. There was enough dishwash liquid to last through our trip. They could've provided more detergent,... More

My family (14 people total) stayed here last week for a reunion. We rented a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, and 2 three-bedrooms, one with a spacious wraparound lanai and direct ocean view. The one-bedroom was so-so, but the other rooms are beautifully furnished, with well-equipped kitchens. The units really look like the photos, with pretty much everything you could ever need!... More

We booked our room through Kaanapali Beach Properties. 1-800-887-7654. They have over 80 units they rent out in Honua Kai. The thing I liked about renting through them is they post the exact picture of the room you will be renting and you see exactly what you are getting. Our unit was brand new and they had just taken over... More

We rented our 1-bedroom condo through VRBO and we saved significantly by doing so. The main difference I could see is that we weren't allowed to use the resort towels at the pool, however, our condo came with more than enough towels, plus a washer and dryer, so that was never an issue for us and well worth the amount...

Units are roomy, very nicely furnished and appear brand new. If you can afford it – get an ocean-view room, you will NOT be disappointed by the views. I holiday frequently, all over the world, and I’ve never seen a more beautiful view in my life than from this resort. It’s well worth it. Despite being more apartment style accommodation... More

The entire staff was warm and accomadating!! New facility and it looks it! The snorkeling right in front of the hotel was awesome for a family with kids. Keep in mind this is a family vacation condo/hotel. Lots of kids! Great place for family reunions. If I were going as a couple to get away, I would choose another place.... More

My family and I stayed here and it was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. The pool and beach area were absolutely beautiful. We were a group of 6 adults and 3 kids and we spent the majority of our time at the pool and beach for our 10 day stay. The pool by Duke's was... More

We stayed in an ocean view studio suite on the 8th floor during our last visit to Maui. Our initial impression of Honua Kai was positive. The friendly bell staff was excellent. They unloaded our luggage and groceries and promptly delivered them to our suite. The bellman then explained some features of the suite, such as how to open and... More

We rented a 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo on the first floor (#103 through Kaanapali Beach Rentals) which included a fabulous kitchen, dining area, living area, washer/dryer, small yard and patio with dining table and chairs plus a lanai plus an outdoor kitchen with a Viking grill, fridge and sink. A secret path of stepping stones led to the pools... More
