Like others have said, this resort is older but we thought it was a great location, we were on 12th floor oceanfront -- never had such a spectacular view on any vacation! We watched whales, turtles, dolphins, from the lanai -- it was spectacular, the lanai wrapped around so you could see the pool area and the mountains. Room was... More

This hotel is located on the Western side of Maui. It is probably 30 miles or so from the airport. The hotel is nice, but nothing fancy. It is made up of condos that are individually owned. Some of the rooms include daily maid service and some do not. We were in a studio on the top 12th floor. While... More

We stayed in unit #320 and it was a nice surprise to see how big the unit was. The oceanview was ok. The room had been renovated recently. For the price, $179 per night, I think it was a good deal. No beach services offered and the majority of the other guest were older than us (40s-60s). If you are... More

Looks nothing like the website, rooms and beds have not been updated since the mid 70's, well ok maybe the towels were bought some time in the early 80's. There were three remotes none of which were sanitary. If you want to have a Drunken party here go for it, because it won't hurt the carpet any, well it was... More

The thing that is great about the Royal Kahana is the ocean front rooms. I like the huge glass windows that look out on to the Pacific. I found it really quiet. We went looking for a condo that was close to Lahaina and thought this was a pretty good value, given the size of the unit, the view, the... More

My family of 4 stayed at the Royal Kahana Feb13-20th and really enjoyed this hotel. Its just a clean, basic hotel with lovely rooms- we stayed in room 1107. The lanai was great with great ocean view( as stated in room type) but it was as close to ocean front as you could get. The visitors are young families and... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Outrigger for our honeymoon in February 2009. Our room was a 1 bedroom suite ocean view. The views were amazing, we were able to watch the whales from our balcony. The hotel itself is a little dated, but very clean. They are in the middle of doing some renovations so there... More

Location was ok in that it was "oceanfront," close to a couple good beaches in short driving distance, walking distance to strip mall right behind it, not too far from Lahaina (but not in Lahaina, it's in Kahana.) Balcony/lanai was my very fav thing of the stay. It had a chaise lounge I spent a lot of time on, watching... More

This was my second stay at the Royal Kahana and I will be returning in January 2009 to stay in a 2 bedroom condo. I really enjoy this place. I highly recommend using VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner). You will get a much better rate than booking thru the Royal Kahana. Visit the VRBO website and it will give you... More

We booked at the Royal Kahana with a little trepidation, based on the reviews we’d read, but were pleasantly surprised. We had an ocean-view 1-bedroom (an ocean view is the only way to stay in Hawaii, in our opinion) and it was great. We had a spectacular view of Molokai and the channel between us. The building is a bit... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Make yourself at home in Kahana. This beachfront community is the calm cousin to West Maui’s high-profile destinations of Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua Resort. You won’t find the typical string of Maui hotels, dazzling storefronts, and streams of shoppers and diners – although that’s only a few minutes away if the mood strikes. Instead, step into casual comfort at Outrigger Royal Kahana, a pleasant Maui condo that takes full advantage of its discreet Kahana setting. Welcome the sun on a morning stroll chasing waves along the sand. Breathe in the breeze that sweeps across the ocean view from your high-rise lanai. Marvel at humpback whales slapping and rolling so close to shore! ... more   less
