We just left the Westin Resort and Spa in Maui on Kaanapali beach yesterday. We stayed for 5 nights and had a wonderful, relaxing stay. At first impression we were wowed when we walked into the open air lobby. The property was gorgeous. From viewing the other hotels on the kaanapali beach strip, the Westin Resort had the best pools (5 total including 1 adults only) and property. The Hyatt had very nice pools too, but their beach was not nearly as nice as the Westin. The Westin down towards the Sheraton have the best section of beach. The water is calmer and there is a wide stretch of sand to lounge. We stayed in a deluxe ocean view room in the separate tower (I think it was the Beach Tower) which I heard is more updated than the Ocean Tower. We had a spectacular view of the beach all the way down to Black Rock. The room was very clean and there is an option to not have your room cleaned. If you select this daily, you receive a $5 voucher to use for food on the property. We got $20 during our stay and put it towards our last dinner. The dining is okay, not great. It is a little over priced for the quality, but we still enjoyed it. There are also many other restaurants you can easily walk to from the beach walk. We had lunch at Hulu's grill and barefoot in the sand (the tables are set up on sand so you can take your shoes off while you eat). Hulu's is located right next to the Westin. The food was excellent! We enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich: delicious! Also, the Westin is located right next to Whaler's Village which is a very nice outdoor shopping center. We did a lot of souvenir shopping there. There are tons of beach and water activities on the property. We also loved the whale watch with Gemini tours. The Gemini catamaran picks you up right on the Westin resort beach. The location is the best perk of the Westin. It really is the best spot on the beach: so close to everything! We loved our time on Maui island! We drove part of the Hana highway and walked to twin falls (mile marker 2 on the highway). We ate at the Pa'ai fish market (delicious) and walked through the cute town of Pa'ai. We drove to the top of Haleakala Crater and watched the sunrise (truly inspiring!). We also recommend after Haleakala stoping for breakfast at Kula Lodge located at the bottom of the road. We had pancakes with coconut syrup!! Lastly, we went zip lining through Skyline Eco Adventures. We did the Kaanapali course that was very close to the Westin (we could walk to the check in location at the Fairway Shops). This zip line course is high above the Kaanapali resorts and has beautiful ocean views!
Wonderful stay in Maui at the Westin Resort and Spa!
