The Honua Kai Resort Maui is a 4-star high rise condominium resort located on the northern end of what I think is one of the best beaches on the island, Kaanapali Beach, Maui! It's practically brand new too - the first tower was completed in 2009, and the second tower was completed only in 2010! Being so new, and perfectly located, it's no wonder the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive!

There are 3 pools in total, the formal Konea Pool, the winding river pool, and the Ohana pool for families, which includes a special section just for keiki (kids).

Kaanapali Beach Maui is right out front, which is great if you're in the mood for sand and surf! If you love to snorkel like we do, you can take a stroll down the beach to Black Rock Maui for worldclass snorkeling fun!

Dining at the Honua Kai Resort Maui

This is one area where the Honua Kai Resort Maui really shines compared to most of the other condo rentals in Maui.

Unlike most of the others, the Honua Kai Resort and Spa has its very own on-site restaurants (with plans for a third!)

For starter's, there's Hawaiian cuisine, made with fresh local ingredients, at Duke's Beach House. This open-air oceanfront restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere here in the evening.  The tiki torches were lit, plus there was live music and hula!

For a quick, casual meal, there's Aina Gourmet Market with it's cafe and coffee bar (open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.) Another perk is that Aina Gourmet Market also carries a full selection of groceries and sundries so you can cook up a great meal in your suite!

(And, there's also a Times Supermarket across the street from the driveway entrance to the resort!)

Rates and Reservations

Since the Honua Kai Resort and Spa is a condominium complex, there's a choice of either renting a condo directly from the owner through a site such as HomeAway, renting directly from the Honua Kai itself, or, renting from one of the major travel sites such as Booking.com.  My suggestion would be to check out all 3 of them and see where you can find the best deal.
