I collapsed into this room after a very long day of flying and appreciated the comfortable bed and cleanliness of the space. You can tell these people keep a tidy ship and I greatly appreciate the value in the room.

We had a wonderful 1-week stay. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The hotel location is minutes from all Wailea restaurants and nightlife. The beach is just a few seconds walk from our room. Will definitely come back!

We stayed at Kohea Kai for a golf trip this last weekend. What an awesome hotel in Kihei, centrally located between the airport, Wailea, and the north side of island. The property is located right across the street from the beach--it almost feels like a private beachfront. The hotel itself is great and the hospitality is top-notch. I had an accessible guest room that was spacious, offered all the features a person who has a wheelchair would need. There was even a small kitchenette which definitely comes in handy to whip up quick meals. Newly remodeled, the rooms offer triple sheeting, Ac, a view of the lush courtyard, and LCD TV and wifi. We had a group of 14 and each person had a different unique room type. We all had a comfortable stay and a great time. There is even a gazebo and a BBQ! If you are visiting Maui, Kohea Kai Resort is an excellent hotel.

On February we arrived to Maui for our honeymoon with a pre payed reservation for an ocean view room. Not only the room was NOT ocean view, but it also seemed as they had just improvised the room for us. Practically no furniture, not even a chair, nothing on the walls. At first, when we talked to someone at the front desk, they agreed with us, told us they were overbooked and offered our money back for the remaining nights so that we could go to another hotel. They also said we could ask for a refund for the nights we stayed there because the room was not decent and certainly not what we booked. So we did, we changed hotels. Right now we are making a claim for those nights and they keep rejecting it. They should give us back the whole price for the nights that we stayed, but they won’t even pay the difference between a room with an ocean view and a regular one. Here are some pictures of our room and it’s view. Don’t stay here. Don’t waste your time or money.
