“Mana Kai, no ka oi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Our favorite place to stay in Maui. Right on the beach. All the conveniences, small store with deli, restaurant, sports equipment rental shop, pool, lots of parking. We always stay on the hotel side and its great. Decent size room with fridge, microwave and coffee pot. Great value. Staff is outstanding.

I just returned home yesterday from a wonderful stay at the Mana Kai. My boyfriend was pleased with the decent price, great location (on the beach and just outside of Kihei) and wonderful dining. I was pleased with the wonderful beach, pool, and restaurants. However, I was blown away by the friendly and helpful staff. Not only did they go above and beyond to aid me in handing in my school assignment (using the office equipment to scan and email it), but the cleaning ladies actually chased us to the parking lot with my expensive dress that I had forgotten in the closet when checking out.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Maui. It's very reasonably priced, has a great location, exquisite restaurants with a bumping happy hour (just be sure to go early!!!), and excellent staff.

Mom, dad, 2 boys age 10. This was our third time at the Mana Kai. We rented privately through VRBO. Our condo was incredible. Totally renovated and fully equiped. Comfortable beds and very clean. Wifi is free. We also had a parking stall with our unit. The pool is great. Very well maintained and clean. There are washrooms for guest use at the pool so you do not have to go back up to your room. They are code protected to avoid public beach use. They are always extremely clean. The beach is magnificent! Snorkeling right outside your door. And then a sandy beach that you can walk on forever! The sunsets are amazing. Also saw a lot of whales from our beach charis and our lanai this last trip. Nice grassy area to sit on comfy chairs provided if you don't like to sit in the sand. The grounds are extremely well kept as are all the areas. The excursions booth is excellent. Both ladies I have dealt with are very helpful. Location is quiet. I have not dined at the onsite restaurant. The deli / store on the main level is great to have. Everything you can imagine is available if your in a pinch. I believe they now have BBQ's you can book to use. Not a trendy tourist spot. Minutes from Wailea. Love shopping for groceries at the local Foodland. It really makes you feel like you are in Hawaii unlike other chain supermarkets. Great service there. Have done several Trilogy excursions and would highly recommend any of their outings. The Old Lahina Luau is great. Good food and great show. Have driven the Road to Hana and up to Haleakala. Both are worthwhile and a must do. Love the Mana Kai.

Great place and location, stayed in unit 306. Lots of whale watching from the lanai and we were treated to an amazing show of whales breaching just a mere 100 yards from the condo!
Tracy who works at the activity booth was very helpful. Will be returning.

We stayed at the Mana Kai for 5 days in September. What a great place! Located in the perfect location right on the beach. Everything you need right at your door. Highly recommend this property if you're looking for a rental in Maui. A short distance to Kihei town center for shopping and dining. We will definitely stay here again.

Can't beat the location. Perfect. Right on Keawakapu Beach. Nice little coral reef for easy snorkeling.
We have stayed in 2 units there. Both on top, 8th, floor. 814 is on the mountain end of the building and 804 is nearer the ocean. 814 was perfect. Great bed, good furniture etc. 804 had the best view for whale watching you could imagine, but the furniture and beds were not great.
Both places had well stocked kitchens.
Mana Kai does not have washer/dryers in the units, and that is a bit of a pain. Each floor has them by the elevators.
We really like this place and will stay here again.

Room Tip: There are 2 kinds of rooms. Condo faces Keawakapu Beach. Hotel room face north and do not have kitch...

I recently took the new Nia classes that are offered at Maui Yoga Path studio and loved them! The instructor, Ann Paquin, is amazing and I love Nia! There are three Nia classes offered a week here and the studio is beautiful and the ocean is right outside the door. I would highly recommend taking Ann's Nia class here. I have also taken class with the studio owner Deni and she is wonderful as well!
