My husband and I decided to take our "babymoon" on Maui but we didn't want to stay in a resort area with thousands of other people. At 7 months pregnant, comfort and relaxation was key in choosing a place to stay. We chose Paia Inn because the location more exclusive feeling, romantic, and private. We were not disappointed!
The staff at the Paia Inn is fantastic. Carly, Nina, and Tina were phenomenal hostesses taking an interest in our comfort and happiness the entire week. They offered excellent advice on day trips, gave us a full tour of the entire property so we knew where everything was (beach chairs, etc) while we were there, and offered a friendly "hello" with a smile every time we saw them - you can tell that they really love what they do and that joy spreads to everyone around.
The rooms and common spaces at Paia Inn are tasteful, comfortable, and very well kept. The beds are very comfortable, linens are high end, bath products are spa quality and paraben free for you pregnant Mom's out there, and there are flat screen tv's in each room. We stayed in both a standard room and then were upgraded to a junior suite for our last two nights which was a lovely and unexpected gesture by the staff. Both rooms were fantastic. The standard room was cozy but comfortable and had a small refrigerator with mini-bar treats and drinks as well as room to put your own drinks and food, should you choose to keep some on hand. The junior suite has an additional sitting area with a microwave and dish ware as well as a small refrigerator.
We were able to use WiFi while we were there with no problem though if you prefer to travel laptop free, there is a MAC in the common area for checking email, printing boarding passes etc.
Breakfast is available consisting of fruit, muffins, scones, and pastries - if you require or prefer some protein, there are plenty of places on the surrounding blocks to get a cooked breakfast and there's an excellent grocery store as well with many vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic options.
The area around Paia Inn really DOES have everything one might need and the town is very safe, friendly, and just plain happy. There is a pharmacy, grocer, several cafe's, lunch, and dinner spots in the area (within walking distance) as well as lots of treats like gelato, cocktails, shaved ice, yoga, jewelry, gorgeous clothing, art galleries etc.
If you have a rental car, parking is free in the private hotel lot just around the corner from the building that houses the Inn. There are security camera's so you don't have to worry about car break ins.
Last and certainly not least, Paia Inn has private beach access across the lawn from their beach house which is also available for rental (highly recommend checking it out as an option). Though the beach itself is not private, it is very secluded and not busy at all. The sand is clean and the beach is very clear of rocks. There is a small rock pile to one side so there are plenty of little tide pools to view small fish, starfish, etc. - perfect for the kiddies to explore. We had a great time watching sea turtles swim in the surf... we couldn't believe that they come so close to the beach! It was a treat to see them.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The postcard perfection of Maui’s North Shore (white sand beaches, raging waterfalls, stylish cafes, and world-class surfers) just got even better with the opening of the Paia Inn. This beach town boutique inn seamlessly blends modern amenities with the historic character of its building. In a nod to the town’s plantation trade days, the building’s exterior has retained its charm with tin rooftops and rustic hues; yet, the interior mixes contemporary island furnishings with the chic lushness of the W Hotel. ... more less
