Gracious and attentive Room Service is just a phone call away. And should you choose to dine out, two on-site restaurants are available to satisfy every appetite.

The restaurant serves fresh, locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The cuisine is Hawaiian-influenced with a focus on fresh, sustainable seafood and premium steaks.

Maui's year-round mild climate invites you to spend leisure time at the Aquatic Playground, which features something for everyone. The Wailele Waterfall Pool features a Keiki area where you can soak up the sun while watching your children play in shallow water. The Maile Calm/Quiet Pool is perfect for cooling off or swimming laps. The Nanea Leisure Pool provides a serene pool experience when it's time for ultimate relaxation.

Good hotel with amenities, but some issues

Good but hidden charges such as crib rental and some impatience on part of check-in/housekeeping staff when asked to accommodate child's naptime

Apr 17 2017
The grounds of the honua kai were very nice. The room was very nice as well. Although I do not think the hotel deserves a 4 star rating. The hotel is at best a 3.5. The room is very well appointed but housekeeping does not come daily. The pools were nice but not the cleanest. Great location.

Honua Kai was very nice, updated, super friendly staff. Wonderful location, easy to get to Kapalua and Lahaina. My only complaint was that the beach area was rocky and I saw several peple walking with limps due to cutting their feet while boogie boarding. Loved the property in all other aspects. Next time, we wont forget our water shoes!

The room smelled of cooked lobster that never went away, however the maid service was excellent and the concierge service was the deciding factor in making or breaking our Maui experience. Having them describe the activities and make the reservations for our outing trips was beyond value.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY IN PARADISE!

Great for a couples or family vacation. Gorgeous grounds and right on the beach. Great pool and restaurant right on beach. Went for our honeymoon and they upgraded our room at no cost and provided personalized labeled champagne- wonderful customer service!

You get what you pay for, the spa was overpriced and the cashier says “I’ve added 20% for your convenience” being a math major I did the calculation and it was 32% so I advised her and she said ooops.. the fine print says all fees paid, however your still paying report charges, and they also state a freshen up of your suite every other day, they do not do this service unless you pay an additional fee. The hard hat view is just as it’s stated, so if you don’t mind the smell of tractors, then go for it

Great resort.

Overall I thought this was a great resort. The grounds were great. Our Partial Ocean View room was great as well. Loved it! The only issue I had was some seemingly bad attitudes at the front desk. Wasn’t sure if everyone woke up on the wrong side of bed or what. It wasn’t all frowns though. But I did notice that. Other issue I had was that We left a photo there that we bought from our time on Pride of Maui (our fault) but feel that the Honua Kai cleaning staff could have showed some care and take the picture to the front desk and have them attempt to get it back to us. We called the resort and they said housekeeping must have thrown it away. Smh! This is why I gave 3 stars.

What a great place for a family

We had a wonderful time in our first time here. We celebrated my parents 50th anniversary with 12 of us in 3 rooms. The rooms were beautiful with spectacular views. The wristband key systems was great. My only hesitation is that there is really only one restaurant on premise, which limited dining options. The staff was wonderful and friendly. One more note: the beach is a little narrow but the snorkeling is great.

Second and last time at Honua Kai - do not rent room 344
Baz76, Brisbane
Mon Jun 11 19:46:03 EDT 2018
I would not give this place one more cent, DO NOT STAY HERE! The scraping form the wooden floors form the occupants of Unit 444in the Konea building ruined once was a place I’d call paradise. The first time we stayed at Honua Kai, it was brilliant. Great service from the rental agency as well as the owners association that managed the site. However since the last stay, there has been a break down in the relationship between the management of Honua Kai and the rental agencies. The impact for us was that none of the issues we bought up were resolved and for the amount of money we paid to hear the above neighbours scraping the wooden floor with chairs and whatever they were doing will see us never EVER returning to Honua Kai. Chatting to one of the Honua Kai staff, they indicated that a number of unit owners have upgraded the condos with wooden floors. It looks great, however if you install a wooden floor with no blue sound barrier underneath and then lay it on a concrete floor…all you hear is scraping. From 530am until 11pm at night, all we heard from the 29th of May until the 7th of June was scraping. We called up the front desk, nothing resolved, we touched base via social media, we touched base with the rental agency, touched base again with the front desk who then sent a security guy to come out. We would go out, come back to the scraping. The security guy came out, heard the noise then went upstairs to investigate and nothing resolved. We emailed Maui rentals (the rental agency) again and again and they could do nothing about it as they are not onsite. Of course Honua Kai fobbed us off to them, however they have no way of stopping them from scarping stuff on the floor. I do not blame Maui Rentals at all for the issue as they have no power at all to resolve it. All they could do is touch base with Security who went up to the people in room 444 to ask them to stop. All that did was to make the scrapping louder and louder. I even emailed the rental agency who rent out unit 444 and they did nothing. Thus my tip, if you are going to Honua Kai and staying in either building, make sure that the above unit does not have a wooden floor. If you have a wooden floor in your unit be mindful of the people below as the people in 444 were not at all. Cheers guys for ruining our 10th year anniversary to the people who stayed in room 444. I would not stay at Honua Kai again as the Honua Kai staff were not helpful at all and after reading recent terrible and poor reviews it’s the same issue…if you rent through Honua Kai direct, they will help you, if you haven’t paid them directly; you are not worth their effort and NOTHING WILL BE RESOLVED!
