No high density high rises here. Local zoning laws permit nothing higher than the palm trees. The Napili Kai property on the north end of Napili Bay is a little slice of old Hawaii charm. Our beachfront room was just a handful of steps from the sand. The on site restaurant is unlike anything you will find anywhere else on the island. It sits literally right on the edge of the beach with stunning sunset view and excellent food. It's somewhat pricey but most rooms have kitchenettes and there are barbeque grills spread around the property so you can enjoy your own home cooked, in-room meals. Staff was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Everywhere you turn you will see employees that have worked at Napili Kai for 20+ years which speaks volumes for the company. And I must confess, we've been returning here for vacations for 9 of the past 12 years. Napili Bay isn't the top snorkeling beach on Maui, but we found sea turtles on the reef virtually every day of our two week stay. And even over the Labor Day holiday weekend, the beach was not at all crowded. Would we go again? We made our reservations for next year when we checked out.
