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.

LORI S.
Jul 16 2018
We stayed at the Royal Lahaina on Kaanapali beach, Maui. The views are outstanding. The weather was warm and a beautiful breeze to keep you from being to hot. The beach was the most beautiful beach I have seen in my life. It was clean, a little wave but not too overpowering, crystal blue and you could see right through the water. Nice soft sand! The hotel was amazing. Wonderful and open layout. Room was clean with a wonderful view of the ocean. Only con is the toilet clogged twice but I was with my husband and 17 yr old son (if that tells you anything). I hated leaving to return home.

Highly recommend this hotel if youre trying to save a little money on your trip. We stayed in one of the cottages and it was terrific. Having your own kitchen gives you the luxury of making your own food to save on in between snacks besides going out all the time. The cottage was spacious with a good view. It made you feel like you were living there in a way. Nothing was super high class in there but i wasnt expecting anything fancy like that. Besides youre in the place for a very little time. Plus it was on the beach walk path so really anywhere you wanted to go was easy to access. Would recommend for any larger group trying to find a place to stay!

Vacation in Paradise!
STEVE P.
May 26 2017
This was the first vacation to Maui for me and the missus. We had high expectations, since another couple we knew stayed in Kaanapali at the Sheraton and recommended staying in West Maui, which is where the Royal Lahaina is located. In fact, the hotel is just north of the beautiful town of Lahaina, along a beach strip connecting several hotels in an area called Kaanapali. Let's start with the accommodations. We elected to upgrade to the Deluxe Ocean View in our vacation package, which included 5 days and 5 nights. Why the upgrade? We figured if we're going to do Maui right, we better start with the room. We were not disappointed. The north view from the hotel tower is far superior to the south view, which you would get if you didn't upgrade. Our room was on the 11th floor (there are 12 floors in the hotel tower), so we had a commanding view of the ocean and beachfront. One thing to note: you are not getting the "ocean front" view, which is the west side of the hotel. In fact, you can't upgrade to the "ocean front" view through Apple Vacations or even CostCo. Only Expedia offers this option. That said, we preferred our view, because a direct ocean view would have meant missing out on the beautifully angled beach and palm trees, which made our view to die for. We recommend an even-numbered room, because the bed faces the ocean, versus an odd-numbered room, which faces the mainland. This afforded us an ocean view from our bed, as if we were on a cruise ship! Another couple in an odd-numbered room complained their view faced the other way. The balcony and sliding louvered wood doors were our favorite feature of the room, because we liked to keep the sliding glass door open, but the louvered door shut, so we could hear the ocean and feel the breeze at night and block out any light. Another big bonus with the hotel is the beach. It's gorgeous, warm, relaxing, and if you like to snorkel, like we do, you can walk to where the reefs start (the next property over) and see all kinds of amazing fish. We saw angel fish, octopi, humuhumu (trigger fish), even a couple of sea turtles. Divine! And the best thing: it's walking distance. In fact, we liked the snorkeling at the hotel better than Black Rock and even the beaches in Wailea. What else? The hotel staff is super friendly. We prefer their attentive but casual nature to the stuffy-heads down in Wailea. The hotel grounds are clean, and you really feel like you're in paradise. We highly recommend the Royal Lahaina

Fantastic Honeymoon & First Trip to Hawaii

My husband and I went to Maui for our honeymoon and first trip to Hawaii, using Apple Vacations for all the bookings, and our trip was absolutely perfect. The environment, staff, and accommodations at the resort were top-notch, and it was located very close to the amazing little town of Lahaina. We did not deal with crowds, annoying vacationers or partiers, and enjoyed each day of the trip without any problems. I highly recommend the resort and booking through Apple (we received an unbeatable deal for flight, hotel, and car!).

We actually spent 4 nights here and 4 nights at Turtle Bay. The things that we didn't like about the room include: a full size bed on springs, expensive food at resort, everything costs extra, air conditioner did not seem to keep running. Bathroom was just fair. Too us a while to find th pocket door in the bathroom. The bathroom was a bit outdated. No headboard. No carpet.

We have stayed at the Royal Lahaina 3 times and are heading back Feb. next year. It is obviously our favorite hotel on Maui. The staff are top notch and management cares about the customers and those are the two most important things to us. The rooms are nice and spacious and have plenty of storage areas so that you can truly unpack and enjoy your stay. When they say "Welcome Home" they mean it. We can't wait to get back.

Fantastic yet Unpretentious Oceanfront Resort

My wife and I were extremely happy with our trip to the Royal Lahaina Resort. The staff was courteous and the room was fantastic. We had fantastic views and were able to experience the music of the luau every night. My wife took advantage of the free oceanfront yoga classes. The place was not super-crowded like some of the other resorts on either side along the same beach. We have already recommended this hotel to our friends and will continue to do so. Given the choice, we would return again.

We truly enjoyed our stay here, but they claimed to do room cleanings every day and in a week we only had our room serviced once. Beautiful views, decent gym, amazing location right on the beach. Well worth the money on the room.

As Close to a Traditional Property As You Are Going To Get
SCABob, Las Vegas, NV
Thu Jul 19 07:00:58 EDT 2018
What is unique about the Royal Lahaina is the fact that it IS NOT a Hilton, Sheraton or Marriott. You will not find multiple restaurants, bars, shops, etc. at this property. What you will find is a property that is very traditional and laid back and quiet. Our room was clean and well taken care off during our stay. The food in the restaurant was very good to outstanding as was the service. The only negative comment I have concerns their billing process. Our package included a $150 food & beverage credit. While they could tell us the balance they could not show how restaurant/bar charges were applied. Also, they claim that our package was handled by a third party and they really had nothing to do with it and couldn't offer any comments on just what was in the package. The concierge told us the luau would be charged against the F&B credit while the package included the luau. The night before check out I decided to review our bill (something I never do). I found 2 errors totaling about $55. While the errors were corrected, the initial response was that I was wrong. Having said all of this, we would return and we do recommend this property. FYI: A Shuttle runs from the property to Lahaina Town. It cost $3 each way and they only take credit/debit cards. A free Trolley runs between the Royal Lahaina and Whalers Village. You can rent beach stuff (i.e., umbrellas, chairs, etc.) but they only rent for a full day. They do not offer a rate for, say, 2 hours. We did not like this approach.

Exquisite grounds.

Our family vacation in Maui was lovely. We chose the Royal Lahaina resort and weren’t disappointed. Our room had an ocean view and a balcony. A folding bed ( full size twin) was free of charge for my granddaughter. The hotel was clean and nicely furnished. We had daily breakfast overlooking the ocean. The buffet was plentiful but pricey at $26 ($11 for children). Nothing in the buffet was cooked to order. The dinner menu was adequate but nothing special. The two pool areas are large with lots of seating. There are no lifeguards. There isn’t much shade. Umbrellas, cabanas and sit up chairs could be rented. The hotel is situated in a perfectly beautiful part of Kanapali beach, with a private beach area. There are shops, an ice cream parlor, a gym and a spa where I had an excellent massage. We were a short drive to the town of Lahaina and even closer to Whalers Village. The Royal Lahaina was a good choice for my family and the price was right.

Not as nice as I had expected

We spent three nights in an Ocean Front Cottage with 2 double beds. The first cottage we were assigned was very moldy and musty. We requested a new cottage that didn't smell, and were put into a one bed cottage--the said no other 2 bed cottages were available. Since the room was so dank and musty we moved to the one bedroom cottage. I ended up having to sleep on a horrible cot where you could feel every spring and coil. Room service was awful, so I suggest skipping that. The pools are much smaller than they appear in photos. Overall I was surprised that this was not nearly as nice as I had expected.

Excellent tennis courts nearby, good beach, average accommodation

We stayed in Cottage garden hotel room a couple of weeks ago. The room is clean, but outdated. A/C is very loud. The beach is clean, beautiful and less crowded. About 10 tennis courts are nearby the parking lot, easy access to people who like to practice tennis in early morning. Shuttle to Whaler village.
