The Hawaiian Canoe Experience teaches guests Hawaiian traditions while offering a fun adventure. Participants learn the basics of paddling, as well as the history of the canoe and its importance to Hawaiian heritage. Used by native Hawaiians to cross the rough channels between the islands, the outrigger canoe was built out of koa and other hard native woods. Not only an instrument of fishing and sustenance gathering, the outrigger became the long distance means by which Hawaiians, and the greater Polynesian society projected both settlements and conquests. The Hawaiian Canoe Experience fills up quickly and advanced reservations are required.
However you choose to spend your time, be sure to open your mind and your heart to the Hawaiian culture. Hawaiians believe that we need to be conscious and grateful of all the things around us: our health, our family, and nature. The incredible culture is based on the fundamental principles of love, support, hospitality, and giving without the expectation of receiving.

Sunset wedding and honeymoon of our dreams
We were at the Kea Lani for our offsite wedding and honeymoon the week of March 14, 2019. We came there with our friends who have been to your resort multiple times. Their recommendation did not disappoint! We had a fabulous ocean front suite and loved watching the whales from our deck. The food and service was outstanding. Our favorite hangout was the lawn area overlooking the beach. The sunsets were incredible. All of the staff members were friendly and attentive. A special shout out to Benjamin Quick the general manager. He went out of his way to make our honeymoon stay extra special and helped create memories that will last a lifetime. Thank You Benjamin and crew from Jeff and Sue
Excellent hotel and service
Really great resort with a generous suite and sizable bathroom. Pool and ocean-view loungers are comfortable and have a full-size cushion. We rented a pool cabana with drinks and snacks provided in a cooler and serviced all day, which was really nice (though the cabana service the 2nd half of the day was fairly sparse...still good overall)....our son (4 yo) rented a "sea scooter" to use in the pool for an hour, which he really loved. Our son got sick with a 24-hr stomach virus while we were there....security actually saw us carrying him to the elevator and they contacted the front desk and sent up complimentary Gatorade, Ginger Ale and water for him (on an island where everything costs something that was very generous!). They even sent up complimentary laundry detergent for us to wash his clothes in one of the washers/dryers they have on some of the floors....we felt like they really went the extra mile with all of that. Our favorite restaurant on property was Ko - Asian fusion cuisine...we wished we had eaten there earlier in our trip so that we could have gone back and tried more! We utilized the complimentary car service for dinner off premises a couple of nights instead of taking the rental car. My only main complaint was a phone call to the front desk with a concern over a letter they left in-suite one night that trimming of the palm trees would begin at 6 a.m. the next morning; my concern was the noise it might cause at 6 a.m. Both the front desk person and the "night manager" Ashley were very short and unnecessarily rude about it (Ashley: "There is nothing I can do about the trimming, and if it bothers you in the morning there is nothing we can do then either... there will be no changes to the trimming" and practically hung up on me.) (I was aware there is a law in Hawaii requiring trimming of all the palms for safety reasons of those walking below). I was simply concerned about the early morning noise at 6 a.m., but it did not end up being a problem at all or noisy, which she might have just wanted to say is typically the case, instead of her flat and rude response. Regardless, I have discounted that whole conversation in my review here and given 5 stars to the resort because everyone else at the hotel was simply great and helpful throughout our stay. Free parking (though I'm sure considered in the daily resort fee) was quite a walk from any of the hotel entrances, but that seems to be the case of all the properties in Wailea, as they are of course maximizing their property for view of the rooms. Would highly consider returning to this property in the future if we travel back to Maui.
Our favorite in Maui!
We've stayed three years in a row at the Kea Lani except for this year when we chose to visit Oahu instead. (TripAdvisor wouldn't let me mark July 2018 or earlier so you'll see date of travel as September 2018.) It was wonderful to go back each year and explore more of Maui and have the Kea Lani be our home away from home. We stayed for a week each year in July/August. 1. Luana Lounge - such a calm place to hang out at all times of the day. We traveled with a 9 (and then 10 and 11) year old. Various times of the trip, we would hang out at the lounge and play Uno cards while enjoying some dessert from the lounge (and drinks for us parents!) Such a nice atmosphere for views. The menu for small bites, drinks, and desserts has a good selection. The last year we were there, they changed the menu to light up when opened which we thought was cool. 2. Cabanas and pool - we rented a cabana on parts of our trip. Wonderful service with drinks and snacks provided. We had a favorite location for the cabana and was glad we could reserve a specific one (with advanced reservations). We stayed away from having the cabana near the basketball hoop - otherwise, you'd be watching out for the ball all the time! 3. Text and ride service - we went to dinner and to the shops a few times at Wailea. So convenient not to take out the car. We used the text service to request for the complimentary car (nice, large, air conditioned!). (We liked the Pint and Cork restaurant at the Wailea shopping center.) 4. Suites - we love the suites. We had ocean front suites with a great view. The rooms are spacious so that we didn't feel like we were trapped in a room or getting in each other's way. Love that the hotel provided water bottles for us. 5. Location - we like the location even though we had some drives to Kaanapali and Kapalua. The drives were smooth - not much traffic when we went out. My husband loved the walk along the beach early mornings towards Grand Wailea and other resorts. It was a great path to get some exercise in before the weather got too warm. 6. Nick's - we had a fabulous dinner here one night. Superb view and food. The cafe downstairs was convenient for snacks and coffee/treats in the afternoon. We generally had the daily buffet - lots of birds around waiting for your food - the restaurant provides covers to cover the plates if you go for seconds. Good variety at the buffet. 7. In the summer (July/August) when we have gone, each year, the company Edward Jones' associates were there. It seems they have new associates arrive each week. Even with this, the hotel didn't seem too crowded although the pool can be harder to find chairs (so we rent the cabanas for pool days). Overall, we like staying at the Kea Lani when we're in Maui!
tough to beat: service, style, and beauty !
Only "nits" I had (outside of the ludicrous resort prices which are common to all 4, 5 star locations) were : 1) tough to get an honest mixed cocktail; too much ice, just not worth $18 bucks for a watery mixture that I could not distinguish as an adult beverage; 2) the free parking is great, but the parking space are too narrow; you will wind up getting nicked on your rental car I guarantee ! Otherwise, great service, nice beach and pools ! rooms could use a face lifting but nice size ! Nick's fish Market very good, but as noted, pricey !!
Great Location & Hotel
Loved this hotel situated in Wailea, Maui. It runs along a shared walking path with other hotels Along the ocean. The rooms are well appointees and the staff are friendly & helpful. Concierge is fantastic as well. Ask for Ron! He is the best. Only draw back is the gym is quite small & as a runner the treadmills face a wall. But when you can the path and adjacent road are excellent options for a run. Also the beach loungers are terrible. They need to be replaced. For the kids the beach front is a great place to go snorkelling and see the turtles. They also serve free coffee every morning which is nice on an island where everything costs something! I also love the proximity to the Shops at Wailea and it was about 35 minute drive to Lahaina and Front street shops (depending on traffic). I would highly recommend this hotel considering cost, location and amenities.
