All-suite hotel
Better for families and large groups than couples looking for a romantic atmosphere
The gorgeous grounds of Honua Kai Resort & Spa occupy a good chunk of Ka'anapali Beach along the western coast of Maui – a location that previous guests just can't help but praise. As for the experience of staying here, travelers have mixed feelings. Honua Kai's suite-style accommodations come equipped with full kitchens, ample living space and balconies or terraces; however, some recent travelers say that some of the balconies' ocean vistas leave much to be desired. And while visitors were generally pleased with the resort's atmosphere, they say to look elsewhere if you're seeking a more romantic ambiance, as this property is popular among families and some partiers. It's easy to see why: Not only can the rooms house larger groups, but the resort also boasts a pool with an accompanying water park. Should you need a break from the family bustle, the Ho'ola Spa can easily serve as a place of refuge.

The Honua Kai's upscale-relaxed atmosphere takes a cue from its natural surroundings. The island-inspired artwork in the lobby gives way to colorful koi ponds, artfully landscaped grounds, and meandering swimming pools.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



Two high-rise towers contain these individually-owned eco-friendly (and family-friendly) units combining the conveniences of a condo with the full service of a hotel.
