I can't say enough nice things about this resort. The staff was exceptional. We came in late on a Sunday and even though the office was closed and we hadn't yet paid for our rooms, our keys were there and we were able to settle our bill the next morning. The complex is very nice, especially for it's age. We rented 3 condos for us and our two children and their families. All three were great! Two of the three (D204, B112) had been nicely renovated and the third (C110) was dated, but also very nice. All units were impeccably clean, as were the grounds and pool. There is a wonderful BBQ area by the pool that is a favorite gathering place by all. We certainly enjoyed our time at the end of the day catching up with our family while grilling out. Each morning we eased into the day by watching whales from our Lanai, while drinking our morning coffee. All but our last evening we saw the most beautiful sunsets. Kihei is a great town. The resort is within a short walk to many shops and restaurants. This area of Maui is a bit quieter than Lahaina and the Kaanapali area which was exactly what we were looking for. We will most certainly return to Luana Kai! Mahalo. John and Karin Jensen

We lucked out with availability! We stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bath oceanfront and this place is perfect. It has all the amenities you need, plenty of space and is centrally located. Close to everything you need in Kihei and then not too far from other parts of the island, as long as you have transportation. All units seem to be different, as they’re owned privately so if you’re looking for something in particular, inquiring is probably the best bet. Our unit was a bit dated but we had everything we needed- all kitchen amenities, including a blender. Washer and dryer and the closet came stocked with coolers, beach chairs, a vacuum, snorkel fins. The pool area is great for nights you want to take a dip and hot tub. The best part was our lanai. We could see the ocean and the whales. The master bedroom is in the loft and when we cracked the window, the breeze came in and made for the perfect nighttime temp. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean really drove home that we were indeed, staying in paradise. For the price, you cannot beat Luana Kai. Management was very helpful when emailing. We will definitely be back and hopefully staying in the same unit next year.

This is a very nice clean property. The pool area has bbq grills and tables so its very accommodating if you'd like to grill out and eat lunch/dinner pool side. My wife and I liked that we could lay by the pool and then go sit on the beach for a bit. Amazing sunset views from the beach here. NOTE: just be sure to know which unit you are renting. Go online and check the photos so there are no surprises. We had a little issues when we checked in, but the next day moved to an amazing unit D204. 2 bed 2 bath ocean front. The manager Leslie was very helpful and we would definitely stay here again.

I am writing this review while staying here currently because I am very impressed by this place. We are staying here right now in the end of October. We arrived at 10pm and it was super easy to retrieve our key by the main office. They provide you instructions on where to do that exactly. Our room has an amazing kitchen with all kinds of cooking utensils, pots and pans, drip coffee maker, french press, rice cooker, variety of knives, and everything you can think of in a kitchen. It has a washer and dryer as well. The only thing is that you have to pay extra $ per day if you want air conditioning to turn on. In our case, we don't feel it is necessary since the temperature is pretty good in our ground floor level condo. Down the road is an ABC store where you can get basic groceries and alcohol. In front of that ABC has a small farmers market from morning to 4pm. In opposite direction, there is a Long's Pharmacy which is the same thing as CVS. Kihei has very well reviewed restaurants and is peaceful and safe. If you're a foodie like me, you're at the right place. This place is about 35 mins from Lahaina.

Awesome. Great place with absolutely beautiful sunsets. We rented a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom fully equipped condo facing the ocean. Stunning. It’s my first time in Maui and my only regret was not coming here sooner. Perfectly located. Not too busy. All stores only a few minutes away.
