About Curtis Yu

Aloha! I am a Pacific Northwest native and have spent many years on Maui and the other Hawaiian islands. This condo has been owned by my family for over six years and I am very happy to be able to share this condominium with people who want to come and visit this beautiful island. I am very familiar with Maui and can offer any activity ideas or advice you need. Mahalo lui noa!

Why Curtis Yu chose Lahaina

The Royal Kahana #501 is a corner unit, with windows on three sides, and more square footage than other two-bedroom units in the building. You have a private lanai with beautiful ocean sunset views. This two bedroom condominium offers a full kitchen and washer/dryer unit. The pool and beach are directly in front of the resort. On request you may reserve a private cabana with full kitchen and large gas barbecue grills directly next to the pool and ocean front beach. You are conveniently located within walking distance to shops, supermarkets, and restaurants.

Maui has endless activities for vacationers, from fabulous beaches, snorkeling, scuba, and fishing charters, to fantastic dining and nightlife. Your condo at the Royal Kahana #501 is less than ten minutes from Lahaina. Located on the northwest side of the island, Lahaina is a tropical paradise blending a rich history with modern Maui. This town has great shopping, luaus, and dining, and charter boat trips. All of your activities are easy and convenient to book directly with our friendly lobby concierge.

What makes this condo unique

Come see all that Maui has to offer!

A sunset cruise makes for a perfect romantic evening. If you’re curious about what goes on under the waves, snorkeling tours are a great way to view the incredible variety of life that lives under the surface of the ocean. If you don’t want to get wet, there’s even a submarine that can take you into the deep while you view its mysteries from the comfort of a warm cabin. Helicopter tours are an excellent way to take in the views of the whole island, with its incredible waterfalls, sea cliffs and forest--views impossible to see on foot. For those looking for a little more excitement, you can take an ATV tour or check out the Zip Lines at Kapalua or the West Maui mountains.

If you have never tried 100% Maui coffee, you are in for a treat. You can even visit the Rainbow House, a model home, just up the mountain from Kahana/Kaanapali, situated among many of the small coffee plantations. Ironwood Ranch, where your family can enjoy a fun horseback ride, is only minutes away by car. Nearby Maui Brewing Company is the island's only microbrewery, and serves up good food and atmosphere, with live music and karaoke on different nights. One of our favorite places for happy hour is Sea House at Napili Bay - they have the best pupus (appetizers) on the island; a great snack at a beautiful beachside restaurant after snorkeling with turtles in Napili Bay!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here at the Royal Kahana! It was a great location, quiet but not too far from all the action in Lahania if we wanted to go down there. It was lovely to sit on the Lania every morning and enjoy our coffee. I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it is a little older unit and there were a few things like the fan lights in the master bedroom and the fan system in the 2nd bedroom that we couldn’t get to work. Also we were really disappointed that the beach was not accessible while we were here. But there are many great features about this unit and I would consider staying here again!! Mahalo!!

Very comfortable unit in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at 501 Royal Kahana. The condo unit itself is the highlight as it is clean, comfortable, and spacious. It is the perfect place to stay for a family of 4 or 5, or in our case two couples. The lanai was indeed a pleasure to sit out on, and enjoy the ocean view. The only minor criticism that I would have is that the unit needs a minimum of 2 decent beach chairs provided for the guests use. During our stay, only 1 not so comfortable chair was provided. This is important since there is not an accessible beach at the Royal Kahana so we found it necessary to drive to other nearby beaches which were quite nice. All other necessities were provided both in the kitchen and bathrooms. The Royal Kahana could use a bit of sprucing up both in the pool area and around the grounds.

Great views

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. It was awesome to see whales from the lanai. There were 5 of us and the condo had plenty of room for everyone. Only negatives I had were 1. there is no beach in front of building and they are working on beach reclamation so I am sure there won't be one for quite a while and 2. took quite a while to get response from booking manager before and during trip. The only reason I would not stay here again would be lack of beach, other than that we had a great time!

Perfect apartment for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay at Curtis’ apartment was wonderful. The suite is massive, very clean and comfortable; the pool is warm and fun and there are enough quiet spots to lounge in the sun: the staff were all friendly and welcoming. We loved our stay at the Royal Kahana.

Gray location, great condo

  • 4 of 5

The Royal Kahana is in a great location near Kaanapali beach. The condo was bigger than I expected and provided good views of the ocean and mountain. We could watch the sunset over the ocean from the lanai. The heated pool was also a nice feature. There is a small beach at the condos but you cannot go in too far before there are rocks. Good for snorkeling but visited other/sandier beaches nearby for swimming. There are plenty of swimming areas within 5-15 minutes drive.
