Weekly Complimentary Events

Sunday Worship Service – Sundays from 8 to 9 am

Join us every Sunday morning for non-denominational Christian worship services at Hale Hema (pavilion) in the hotel’s tropical gardens.

Maui Artisan's Craft Fair – Daily from 8 am to 12 pm

Meet local artisans and find one-of-a-kind gifts to bring home as keepsakes from your Maui vacation. Held daily in the Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel lobby and courtyard, you’ll find flower, shell and seed lei, plus woodcrafts, jewelry, art and more.

Hawaiian Entertainment & Hula – Every Night from 6 to 9 pm 

The blowing of the (conch shell) signals the beginning of our nightly show in the Tiki Courtyard, where we invite guests to enjoy a complimentary performance of Hawaiian music and hula, followed by music and dancing under the stars.

Lei Kukui Ceremony – Daily at 8 am, 9 am, 10 am, and 11 am

When a guest stays at Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel they instantly become a part of our ‘ohana (family), which we like to mark with our daily Lei Kukui ceremony. Beginning with a traditional oli (chant), the ceremony explains the significance of the kukui nut leis that we present to our guests. Part of this ceremony explains why we are not saying "goodbye" but rather “a hui hou” (until we meet again), because once you are 'ohana, our door will always be open to you.
