Set amidst 27 acres of tropical gardens, fronting the best and most exclusive stretch of Kaanapali Beach, the Royal Lahaina Resort is a truly unique Hawaiian resort. The resort's natural beauty, traditional Hawaiian ambiance, and dedication to five-star service offers guests a timeless and subtle elegance providing for the ultimate in relaxation and tranquility. You will know you're in Hawaii the moment you set foot in the understated lobby. From the cool flagstone beneath your feet to the warm koa-wood walls and inviting wicker easy chairs, you will feel the soothing embrace of the tropics.

The resort's original garden and oceanfront cottage accommodations evoke a quaint beachside experience reminiscent of Hawaii's Plantation Era, situated amid tropical gardens and sprawling oceanfront lawns. With ceiling fans stirring the soft air, inviting couches, and island-style appointments throughout, they have the distinctly homey feel of a relative's beachfront hideaway.

The 12-story Lahaina Kai Tower features luxurious island-inspired guestrooms and suites celebrating the artistry, environment and culture of Hawaii. Each contemporary room pays tribute to the Islands with custom teak furnishings, hand-selected paintings and photographs, and a soft palette that plays counterpoint to the spectacular tropical setting.

Appetites large and small, casual, and cosmopolitan, traditional and adventurous will be more than satisfied by the culinary offerings at Royal Lahaina Resort. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, pupus (delectable snacks), and a full complement of tropical cocktails - eat, indulge, enjoy. Whether it is that first irresistibly cooling lick of a locally made ice cream cone at the Royal Scoop, a meticulously prepared and stunningly presented fresh island fish at The Royal Ocean Terrace, or the signature Mai Tais that made Don the Beachcomber internationally famous, you will dine like royalty.

Don't be surprised if you are joined by visiting celebrities! And beginning in late October, Humpback whales are frequently seen frolicking just off the beach.

TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
Our Wedding at Royal Lahaina, July 2016
Mark M,
Wed Aug 24 20:00:01 EDT 2016
We had planned our wedding in Maui for over a year; we had already been to Royal Lahaina once before (in October the previous year), as we were a little nervous about an overseas wedding and wanted to check the place out. So we have stayed in Royal Lahaina twice at time of writing this - I have no doubt we will be coming back. The Weddings & Events staff at Royal Lahaina (led by Geraldine Albete) were organised, professional and took excellent care of our day and our preparations. They gave us a range of options for our wedding, including the food, venue (as they have a number across the complex), decorations, flowers - it really took the stress off us, having such a helpful and efficient team behind us, and we cannot thank them enough for their superb work. The reception, valet and cleaning staff were all very nice and welcoming to our group. Our day was everything we have wanted - from the ceremony (with the frankly awesome celebrant/minister), through to the reception (amazing food and great venue - we had a fully outdoor reception initially, this was changed later to an indoor venue for eating and a dance floor set up outside - we were glad of this later as the night was pretty warm and the air-con was welcomed by our guests). Our photographer was Sean Hower, who was also excellent - we are very happy with his work (which we received as promised within 4 weeks of the event). The accommodation in the Kai Tower was super, we had a partial ocean view, with a spacious room and well-kept and tidy. We had a group of 40; most of whom were staying in the garden cottages; one or two of our guests had problems as they didn't quite get the right cottage they had booked, but these things happen, I guess, and I believe these problems were eventually sorted. The setting of the resort is great, right on the beach with pool, a short walk from Black Rock and turtles (though the tropical storm that had blown through recently must have sent them into hiding), and there is a small mall a 5-minute walk away, which gives you a small supermarket, diner, chinese restaurant and was where the bridal party got their hair and make-up done. We hired a car to get here and were glad of the freedom that allowed - we got a bus transfer the first time and were then reliant on buses for getting about, which slowed things down a great deal and limited our options for getting out and about (only nearby town really is Lahaina, all the other interesting stuff is a decent drive away). So would recommend you hire a car - the roads are mostly OK, there are one or two you can't drive on as they are too dangerous but rental companies should mark these for you. Overall, we would not hesitate to recommend the Royal Lahaina, it's great for a holiday but in the case of our wedding, it was a perfect setting and the team there do everything to make your big day the best it can be.

Perfect for our friends and family in Maui.

We stayed at this resort in December 2015 with 2 families. we were greeted at the airport by the resort staff and arrived quickly and without any hassles. we were i a two bedroom unit and not in the high rise section of the resort which we preferred. The room was very well appointed, lots of room as our kids are 14, 18 and 21 so we need more room. There was 2 big bathrooms with plenty of space. The pool area was good and the poolbar was cute and always busy especially during happy hour. It was my sons 18th birthday while we were there so we had a nice dinner in the restaurant and they kindly allowed us to have a birthday cake and made his birthday feel special. Alot of restaurants nearby. Great location for us. Close to a big shopping centre and beach activities. More>

Very Impressed

Wed Aug 24 10:39:49 EDT 2016
We arrived here last Friday August 19th late at night not knowing what to expect. I booked this trip with some doubts after reading a lot of negative reviews but the location and the price for what was advertised as a 4 star hotel, I could not resist. We arrived here with a very friendly welcome, so impressed with the person who checked us in and I was immediately impressed with layout of the front lobby. Very inviting. They had our room ready for us in suite 1230 partial ocean view on top floor so that was a bonus. I knew that rooms would be fairly small from reading other reviews and watching YouTube but I was more concerned about the up keep as there was so many negative postings. Great to report room was great. Shower was amazing( great water pressure), beds were comfy, air conditioning worked great. We had one lamp that wouldn't turn on and that was it. But the view to the ocean was heaven. We woke up to the sun shining bright and it was a great start to our vacation. Housekeeping has been fantastic, another item that kept showing up that they are a hit and miss. In fact the first clean up we left a tip and the maid didn't take so I found another maid later that day and asked her to pass it on to our maid. Well I ran into our maid the following day anc she was so thankful and said she wasn't sure if she should have taken the money. I was so impressed and thankful we were in good hands with hardworking honest people. Having the beach in walking distance was also great. I brought my own snorkeling gear so I had the freedom to jump in and snorkel and not worry about renting. The downside is there is no coral so there is next to nothing to really see other than rocks sand and the odd fish. Although a sea turtle did swim by bumped into my teenage daughter in the shallow water which made her scream. That was the highlight of our trip. It stayed a bit for all of us to view and it headed it's way to black Rock which is just a ways up the ocean to the south. We did breakfast once at the restaurant. It was good but way too expensive although my husband and daughter loved the eggs Benedict. We did royal scoop for treats once. It was good. Self parking is 10.00 a day so we went with valet for 5.00 more. I really like the convenience and they are quick to get your vehicle. And extremely polite I might say opening your door so you feel well taken care of. The pools were good for my teenager girls as they are fairly deep. They weren't spectacular but they entertained enough that the swam a half dozen times. I hope this helps, we are here for a couple more days. Would definitely come back! More>

Great Room

Great place to stay and great view of the ocean. I had one of the best experiences of my life and I hope to go back and enjoy the Island of Maui angain in the near future and spend more time in the ocean More>

Average hotel in maui
Kara M, Port Elgin, Canada
Tue Aug 23 16:31:45 EDT 2016
Location: Great location. approx. 15 minute walk to Whalers village where you will find lots of shopping and restaurants (highly recommend reservations as this is the main area everyone goes for dinner in the resort area) as well as black rock beach. a quick drive ( 5 mins) to lahaina. Parking at the hotel is $10 dollars per day. Renting a car is a must for maui and would pay for itself by the time transportation to and from the airport is required. Also a lot of the excursions in maui do not pick up at hotel. Food: The on site restaurant Royal ocean terrace was very good, had the best risotto i think ive ever had, highly recommend eating here for dinner, breakfast is very pricey here however and nothing special. Room: Ive never asked to be moved rooms before. Our first room which we were upgraded to ocean front had a towel rack that fell of of the wall, and broken tiles out on the patio. As well as a strong musty odour. We were able to be moved to another room that was more spacious, not quite as rough shape as the last but still a musty odour that seemed to come from the air conditioning unit. Expected a little more for the price per night. Activities: Highly recommend Mount Helaekela sunrise trip- with the downhill bike afterwards. Was our favourite thing we did in Maui. Molokini crater is a great snorkeling trip offered as well, with a stop at "turtle town" where you can see lots of turtles and snorkle with them. The Lauau Offered by the resort is GREAT! i highly recommend this also, great drinks offered which was open bar, as well as a large buffet and pig roast. Firedancers were outstanding. Snorkeling at black rock beach is also a great experience, lots of turtles here to swim with in very shallow waters. Road to Hana is a great drive, however be ready for many twists and turns in the road, as well as narrow passing between cars. Keep a full day reserved for this, the sights are beautiful but it does take a long time due to the winds in the road. (lots of waterfalls, seven sacred pools, ect) If i were to visit Maui again i unfortunately would choose another resort, possibly the sheraton, the little extra $ would be worth it. More>
