My husband, family, in-laws, and I stayed at Aloha Aku in Kihei this February in preparation/celebration of our wedding on Valentine’s Day. We are all frequent travellers and all of us were highly impressed with the property’s location, amenities, friendly staff, and owners Gary and Char. Each pair in our group stayed in one of the 1 BR suites- which both met and exceeded our expectations. Each room has a bedroom with a personal bathroom, a fully-equipped kitchen, a living room, and a private lanai area. Amenities included fresh water, fruit, yogurt, and Keurig machines, AC, TVs, free wi-fi, water sports equipment, bicycles, a hot tub, and a community library (complete with DVDs). The property’s beachfront location away from the main road is an added plus- not only does it provide a more private beach experience when compared to the large hotels, but it also makes your stay quiet and restful. Restaurants and grocery stores are within walking distance as well. I can’t think of a place I’d rather stay when visiting Maui, and all our friends, wedding guests, and family agreed. We will definitely stay here again!
