Going Green - Sustainability Efforts

Protecting the ʻāina is of great importance to Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel and to everyone that works here. Based on some of the key cultural values of Native Hawaiians, Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel is constantly making movement towards environmental sustainability in the hotel industry. 


What Have We Been Doing At the Hotel? 

According to the results of a 2016 survey conducted by Maui Electric Company with the 15 largesthotels on Maui, KBH energy usage per room is 60% less than other hotels. 

With the continued sustainability efforts and education throughout the property, the hotel electricity cost per available room decreased by 23.9%, and by 45% for cost per occupied room from 2008 to 2018.

Here are a few initiatives we have been doing at the hotel:
