My family stayed at the Honua Kai this summer with another family that we travel with and we all loved this resort! We had a private condo that we booked with our travel agent. Our condo was a corner unit facing the ocean with a huge balcony. The condo was simply gorgeous! Everything was nice, new, spacious, and clean! We... More

I'll begin by saying the resort is lovely, if you like crowds and noise. It echoes off the buildings through the courtyard. We called Michelle, the gal who is the property manager for the condo we rented from a private party, when we landed to let her know when we'd arrived and she gave no indication she would be late,...

Family of 4. First few nights were in 1 bdrm unit. Fold out coach bed was pretty uncomfortable no one wanted to sleep on it. Ended up upgrading ( expensive) but 2 bdrm unit was fantastic. Pools here are great for both lap swimming and kids. Seeing turtles on reef highlight of trip although being there during humpback season even... More

My family and I spent 2 weeks over the holidays at Honua Kai. We stayed a few years ago before it was completed and couldn't wait to go back. Because so many of the units are not rentable thru the property directly, we used Maui Resort Realty. They were great and certainly recommend if you go the indirect route. Keep... More

We stayed at Honua Kai in August of 2014 and found this to be the best accomadation we had found yet in Hawai'i. There are three pools to choose from, a water slide, and a restaurant for food \ drinks by the pool area. The beach in front of hotel is very calm and has great snorkeling. Kids went fishing...

This place was wonderful. The location is great, with great snorkeling right off the beach. Beautiful grounds, nice pools, very kid friendly. The concierge staff is very knowledgeable and familiar with local restaurants and attractions. We had a delightful time there--can't wait to go back.

Our family was lucky enough to stay at Honau Kai Resort in a 2 bedroom unit (rented thru VRBO) for a week over New Years 2015. The resort is new, upscale, clean and perfect for families. Our children (16,11, and 9) LOVED the swimming pool and access to Dukes restaurant. It was really nice to order poolside drinks and food... More

My family and I have stayed in many places on Maui but this is by far our favourite! We've been back 4 times already and returning this June! Cant wait, it feels like home in Hawaii with the beautiful grounds and the boardwalk right by the ocean is great for running. They also have a great gym!! I recommend to... More
