We stayed here the last night of our honeymoon, it was great! I highly recommend that everyone stays in Paia at least one night while they are in Maui - it was such a nice change of pace from the west shore (aka "tourist land"). The town has wonderful shops showcasing items by local artists - and also has several yummy restaurants (Mama's Fish House and Flatbread was our favorite!).

Now back to the hotel.. we had ordered the "romance package" when booking, so when we entered our room there was a bottle of White Star waiting for us with goodies from the local bakery, and a gorgeous bouquet of tropical flowers. The rooms are really cute and fun beach bungalows. We were upgraded to a suite, so we also had a large kitchen - with stainless steel appliances and granite counters to boot! The beds were super comfortable, we slept like babies. Complimentary local coffee, baked goods and fruit for breakfast too! The hotel is just steps away from the beach, we had so much fun watching all of the surfers because the waves are HUGE on the north shore!

The staff is absolutely fantastic. When we checked out, it was our last day in Maui and our flight didn't leave until 11pm. They let us keep our bags in the lobby all day long so we could explore other areas.

We loved our stay at the Paia Inn!

Service is everything...We have stayed at four other hotels in Maui, the staff at Paia were the best. Nina and Tina were cheerful, helpful and knowledgable. Check in was a breeeze. The rooms were small but very clean and nicely appointed. The bed was very comfortable. I was given my choice of rooms; I might pick one in the back next time because there was some street noise and a light that flashed all night. Didn't matter, I would go back in a minute. Great experience.

This inn was very nice, in a very interesting little surfer town that is the starting point of the Road to Hana. We stayed in a deluxe room, which was nice and very comfortable. But, the best part of this inn was not the room, but the absolutely FANTASTIC staff who were just amazing. The service was beyond friendly, and we felt like we were at home with family. Much of our interaction was with Carly, who was terrific ... but, it truly was the service that will bring us back to the Paia Inn!!

BTW, some great little places to eat in Paia, and a fantastic family place in Wakawao (the Steakhouse) that is worth the drive up the road.

We will surely make this Inn our "home away from home" the next time we travel to Maui.

A hidden gem that provides guests with a variety of rooms and a unique style. Great for surfers and shoppers, and just for those who want to relax. They think of everything from lawn chairs to a beach bag in the room. Hot coffee from Anthony's Coffee shop is also free and available in abundance in the mornings :)

We spent the last 2 nights of our honeymoon at the Paia Inn, and they were two of the most relaxing days and nights that we had the whole trip. I'm so glad my wife talked me into heading here as we originally planned instead of going back to the 'big resort' for the last couple days of our honeymoon like I wanted to. There are so many great things to say about Paia Inn. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The town of Paia is a very cool little spot with great shops and some fantastic restaurants (don't miss Flatbread and Paia Fish Market!!). The Hotel itself is awesome. The rooms were super clean, beds were very comfy, location is perfect, coffee and muffins in the morning were great to munch on while walking around town, and we loved the private beach access along with the beach chairs and toys available for hotel guests. It didn't work out for us due to some cancellations with other activities, but this would be a great place to stay when doing the road to Hana.

Loved the ambience and hospitality of Paia Inn and the town itself, I knew I hadn't given myself enough time here and considered changing our flights to stay longer however it wasn't an option unfortunately!

If you are a fan of the mega resorts where you are just one of the herd fighting for a pool chair, Paia Inn is not for you. Paia Inn is for adventurous travelers who want to find that secret special place the masses dont know about.... yet!

We originally booked a junior suite and while it was very nice and tasteful, we opted to upgrade to their lovely 2 br beach house. Best upgrade we ever did! We loved waking up to the sound of the ocean outside our window. We couldnt ask for a better place to stay.

The staff goes out of their way to make you feel like a true guest in their home. From the moment we checked in, we felt like valued guests rather than just a dollar sign. Thats rare these days!

Paia is a lovely town that is a throwback to the old Hawaii. Cute boutiques, organic grocery stores, and delicious restaurants all make the entire Paia Inn experience one of our best trips ever.

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
