Ahhhhh!  A beautiful Hawaiian hotel for our "Beautiful Hawaiian Love", the Kaanapali Beach Hotel is the perfect place to celebrate a wedding anniversary with our Hawaiian Ohana!

Mahalo.....Larry and Betty,

My wife and I stayed at KBH for a week in April, and loved every minute.
The staff was so friendly and welcoming, and the atmosphere was true "aloha".
Our room was clean and comfortable, with a nice ocean view.
The grounds are lovely, with mature trees and beautiful shrubs and flowers.
It was so relaxing to sit under the shade trees in a lounge chair and read, or just snooze.
The beach is one of the best in Maui: fine sand and warm, clear water.
We LOVED the Tiki Bar, and the many fine restaurants at Whaler's Village are only a 5-minute walk away.
The Hawaiian music and hula shows were charming, especially the Keikis, who were cheered by their proud ohana (and us!).
We enjoyed our stay so much, we are coming back next month!

 Warm regards,
Michael and Anne, Santa Cruz, CA

“Great beach, nice atmosphere”

We just returned from a wonderful vacation in Maui and stayed at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel, largely because of reviews on Trip Advisor. We had a beautiful ocean front room for a very affordable price.The hotel is located on the widest, most beautiful stretch of Kaanapali Beach. The ocean is also the best for swimming -- free of rocks and coral. That cannot be said for other area hotels.

 “Great value for the money”

Our room was in a great location with a view of the pool and ocean. This hotel could use a little lovin', but you get great value for the money. It is on a nice, swimmable beach, has a good pool, and a cute bar. The room cleanliness was fine, but some updates are definitely needed. The Whaler's shopping centre is a short walk away, along with some nice restaurants.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for our first visit to Maui and couldn’t be happier. The people were more than helpful and nice and the hotel was very beautiful. Loved being able to walk the beach and so close to all the attractions at the resort. We will definitely be back next year.

We took our family vacation to the KBH this year, we were very pleased with everything, it seemed like they did everything to make your stay work the best they could for you. Beach was great, those that snorkeled enjoyed Black Rock, shopping at finger tips.

The Hi-light would be the Magic Show, dinner was very good, served nicely, and fast. During dinner we were entertained by the Hawaiian Culture through dance, song, and story. Then came the Magic Show, all we can say is you must attend, it was most entertaining, I do not think anyone should go to Maui and miss the Magic Show at KBH. We are now working around schedules to make our reservations to return.

I would like to thank the staff of Kaanapali Beach Hotel for the greatest vacation ever!!!! Our stay in Hawaii was stress free due to the wonderful staff at our hotel. From Nenika, our maid, who hugged us when we left, to Patty who went above and beyond with recommendations to set us up with our great tours, to Esther, at the front desk, always with a smile, answering all our questions, to Jessie in the gift shop, to Rance “who loves a picture”, to the bartender at the Tiki Bar, whom my Husband called maestro. And, saving the best for last, let’s not forget Malahini, with her gentle soul and awesome teaching and Mike who took time to sit with us and discussed real estate in Maui. We were awed by the sense of caring these people showed. This was our first trip to Hawaii and we spent our time solely in Maui and did not regret it.

We had much rest and relaxation, along with scuba diving, whale watching, the magic show-Kupanaha, ’Ulalena at the Maui Theatre, Old Lahaina Luau and many memorable meals. When we left we felt like we were leaving friends. Thank you for the Kukui Nut lei. WE WILL BE BACK!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL

Having just returned from two weeks vacation at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel we wanted to report how much we enjoyed our stay. The hotel provides a truly “Hawaiian” experience such that the staff make you feel you genuinely belong to the Kaanapali family. The service, the room, the restaurant food and the beautiful grounds make for a truly wonderful vacation. Mahalo!

I wanted to send a quick note to thank you for a wonderful vacation. It was my second visit to your hotel and I could not imagine staying anywhere else. This most recent trip, I brought with me 20+ family members and they all loved your hotel. Your wonderful employees, beautiful grounds, excellent location, and enjoyable hotel activities made such a lasting impression. We cannot wait to visit again.

We have been coming to KBH for the last 15 years! The staff is amazing and they truly live the Hawaiian culture. Throughout the years, we have shared in the aloha experience of excellence with Malihini, Mikiala, Tom and Dale (the bartenders), Jaime, Solome, Rudy, McLord, Lopaka, Jimmy (the cook), and many others. Each time that we return, we are welcomed as "Ohana" and the spirit that is Hawaii. We truly enjoy the food, entertainment, and amenities, but most of all the Hawaiian spirit of the entire staff! One year we did stay at a luxurious resort in Maui "for the experience" and quickly realized that the personalization, care, and culture of the islands were missing! We came back to our "home away from home" the next year and every year since then. We have collected many white kukui nuts with pride and always recommend this hotel to our friends and family. Mahalo!
