Honua Kai is the first resort that has been built on Kaanapali Beach in over 30 years. There are two towers, one is four years old, the other about 2 years old. The resort is extremely spacious and has tons of room to spread out. There are three pools, hot tubs, lazy river, pool slide. One water feature has a Koi pond and there is also a fire pit that is lit every evening. Honua Kai appeals to honeymooners, families and retired folks.
We rented unit 610 from Justin Brunold at KBM Hawaii. This unit is brand new and overlooks the ocean, it is a 2 bed/2 bath and is beautiful.
The units themselves are amazing. The kitchens are beautiful, with Bosch appliances and there is a Bosch washer/dryer in every unit. The dryer is unlike what most of us have at home in that it is ventless. If you wish to dry heavy items, I would recommend that you dry those in the dryers that are in the basement. There are also larger washing machines in the basement for your use.
The units themselves are much larger than most suites at the Ritz or Four Seasons and are priced at least half of what you would pay at a hotel for similar accommodations.
We stayed at Honua Kia in mid-February and yes, it was windy. But, there were high winds on all of the Islands this winter and our weather wasn't ideal, similarly across the Island chain this winter.
I prefer to cook than eat out, but Duke's restaurant is very handy for breakfast/lunch/dinner or just drinks. Duke's staff bring you food/drinks while you are at the pool.
Honua Kai is the best resort on Maui right now in terms of amenities and value for money. There is a gym on site, but we preferred to walk the boardwalk that will take you all the way down Kaanapali beach with it's amazing views. It is a 2 hour walk roundtrip and we just loved it. As you are walking you will see that there nothing nearly as nice as Honua Kai!
Mahalo and Aloha!
