This great boutique hotel is very different to most of the big resort type accommodations elsewhere in the more touristy parts of Maui. Service is fantastic, staff and owner are very friendly and will go out of there way to be helpful. The hotel itself was brand new when I stayed (for 6 days) having been open for less than a year. The room I stayed in (the deluxe one) was a bit on the small side (it is an old building that was completely renovated) but was beautifully laid out and furnished. The hotel is right next to a fantastic beach which was not busy at all when I was there (there are no other hotels in town so only a few locals were using the beach). Paia itself has a chilled surfer vibe to it with some great restaurants and bars. Having stayed in Wailea before I can say that Paia is the best town on the island and is not just tourist orientated. Its also brilliantly located for watersports - I was there for kitesurfing and surfing - the hotel can recommend some great instructors for both of those. The only slight issue I would highlight is that the cheaper rooms are on the front of the building which is right in the middle of the town. The location is a plus point for me as it means you are really close to restaurants etc. but light sleepers would be better off going for one of the more expensive rooms which are set back from the road and would be totally sheltered form any noise. Overall highly recommended and is good value compared to the prices of some of the bigger resorts in Wailea
- 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
