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
Don't book two bedroom suite
wellingtonfamilyof5, Wellington, New Zealand
Wed Apr 27 18:01:34 EDT 2016
I have negatives and positive for this resort - Negatives: The two bedroom suite is a disgrace to this resort. The toilet blocked (the front desk staff suggested this happens regularly and so we are now super cautious of flushing often) the torn, ripped carpet has exposed nails, the rails on the sliding door don't work properly and chipped cupboards make the rooms look dirty and old. Wifi connections are intermittent (at best) and the televisions have on/off receptions also. The air conditioners are so old they make more noise than the 737 we flew to Hawaii on. What made it all worse is the fact that the management are quite aware that these units are in need of an upgrade - but at no point did any advertising for these units let us know we were heading into rooms in dire need of an upgrade. While at the front desk the people ahead of me were questioning their suite - they were also saying how low grade they are, they were told that these rooms are in need of an upgrade, but that if they wanted a "nicer" room they would have to pay more. It would be fair to say that we have paid quite a high price for the room and would have expected more for the value, so buyer beware here. Other negatives: The pool staff are not that helpful and are hard to find for towels etc. The pools are small and not that clean. Positives: most of the staff are helpful and friendly. The lady cleaning our room works really hard and was very pleasant to deal with. The beach is beautiful and turtles swim along the shore. In summary; don't stay in the two bedroom suite - the photos are not a true representation for what you get. I am sure the main hotel is nice, but check the reviews. Note that the two bedroom suites are in separate cottages - some have been renovated, but most haven't! More>

A Little Faded
Cushian, Sydney, Australia
Wed Apr 27 14:34:52 EDT 2016
It was almost 30 years since our last stay in Lahaina and the only major change we have noticed is that the roads are now choked with cars. The Royal Lahaina resort is set on lovely grounds beside the water. The beach is great but slopes steeply and swimming would not be safe for non swimmers and children. We stayed in a garden cottage which had comfortable beds but is in dire need of some refurbishment. The air conditioner sounded as loud as a jumbo jet and the shower was pretty weak. The free wifi was useable only in the lobby. Breakfasts were pretty basic. We had high hopes after our last stay in Lahaina but were somewhat disappointed this time. More>

Smitten
kellyhazelett, Riverside, Iowa
Wed Apr 27 12:05:12 EDT 2016
My husband and I were smitten with this resort on our first trip to Maui in April 2016. It is the only resort within quite a distance where other resorts are clumped together down the Lahaina strip. It was just gorgeous, the staff was friendly, the room was comfortable and the views were amazing. We had a 3rd floor partial ocean view and were just as happy as could be. The higher up the better, but even at the 3rd floor we were in awe of the beautiful view. If we had unlimited funds we would definitely come back to this resort and the beautiful island of Maui every year!! I would highly recommend this resort, and the area. You just can't beat it. More>

Gorgeous

We recently stayed here for a few nights. We opted to pay extra and be upgraded to an Oceanfront room and the view was AMAZING! As soon as we walked on the balcony we saw whales and kept seeing them during our stay. We also saw a few turtles. The sunsets were stunning as well. The room was clean and quite roomy. All the staff we dealt with were friendly. We had breakfast in the restaurant and ordered room service for dinner and we enjoyed our meals. The pools were great. The beach while gorgeous could be quite rough. The singer/guitar player near the restaurant at night was a great bonus. We wish we had stayed longer! More>
