Our building is shaped like a chevron, optimizing ocean views from every single unit above the second floor. Our eighth floor unit has a spectacular ocean and pool view. Our one-bedroom features an excellent floor plan, with the bedroom sharing the lanais, and ocean fronting views from the living room. Our view is an INCREDIBLE ocean view with the Island of Lanai in the distance

Each home at the resort is individually owned and each has a unique style and flavor. We take great pride in ownership and share the aloha spirit with each guest.

There is a full kitchen, washer, dryer, cable TV, DVD player, FREE PRIVATE INTERNET ACCESS. King bed and queen sofa sleeper, easily accommodating 4 guests. Our master bedroom is huge, with its own walk through closet! Central air and ceiling fans provide maximum comfort. Our vacation home is very spacious, 778 sq. ft. plus lanai.

Amenities at the Royal Kahana include a large ocean fronting heated pool surrounded by a sundeck with reclining lounge chairs for guests. Next to the pool is a lovely oceanfront lawn area to take in the sweeping ocean views. Whether you choose to swim in the pool, or sun yourself at the pool deck or beachfront lawn, or take a refreshing dip in the ocean...perhaps a little snorkeling or boogie boarding, you will delight in the natural beauty surrounding you here at the Royal Kahana.

More great assets are under-ground parking,and a fitness center. There are gas-fired barbecue grills at the pool area.

The Aloha activity desk in the lobby is very helpful in planning your Maui activities. Aloha Activity Desk offers a morning continental breakfast with participation in their morning presentation, a must do!

The Royal Kahana is within a very short walking distance to many local shops, some world-renowned beaches, convenience stores, and great casual to fine dining restaurants.

Note: If our availability calendar doesn't show opening during your time frame, visit our website at rkmaui(dot)com

Whatever your pleasure, you can be assured that your stay at our Royal Kahana suite will be absolutely rewarding.

*Beach information

The beach fronting the Royal Kahana experiences seasonal ocean current changes that influence the beach’s physical appearance and size. During the fall and winter, it is not uncommon that these currents sweep away a very large amount of sand, which will gradually return back in spring and summer, based on the ocean's current activity. Our homeowners Assoc., The County of Maui, and the State of Hawaii are working diligently to return Kahana Bay to its full potential.

This circumstance, unfortunately, affects the accessibility of our valued guests to the beach. While there may not be, at times, direct access from the property to the beach during the fall and winter season, there is a public beach access within 5 minutes walking distance.

Our guests' safety is of the utmost concern for us. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

You can stay updated on our ocean front access by viewing our web page, rkmaui(dot)com, and checking the postings on the homepage. We update the postings as soon as we receive new information from the resort.

Royal Kahana -Stunning Panoramic View! Free Wi-Fi!

This was a terrific place to stay-very clean and comfortable. The view was fantastic-not only did you have an expansive view of the beach and ocean from the balcony, you could even see it from the living room couch. Also very impressed with the fitness facilities, which in our experience are rare. The fitness room was comfortably air conditioned and had very good equipment: a Precor Ellipse, a life fitness ellipse and recumbent bike, two treadmills and a weight machine. I would absolutely stay there again.

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed staying in this condo during our first trip to Maui. The condo is spacious and having a nice kitchen along with wash/dryer was great. The view from the balcony was wonderful and made for good whale watching (with binoculars).

The building in which the condo sits is ok, though not particularly elegant or up-dated. The beach behind the place was completely eroded, so don't count on using it. However, its a short (5 minute) walk to a nearby beach which is fine. Probably you'll want to have a car if you stay here, though, since there are much nicer beaches a few minutes drive away. Overall, for our simple needs, this was a great place. Don't expect the four seasons resort, just a nice place to relax and hangout, in one of the most beautiful places you can find.

Was hoping to go whale watching while in Maui but didn’t expect to see them every morning and evening from our balcony. Location and accomodation suited our needs perfectly and we would highly recommend.

Beautiful Condo, Beautiful View, Homey Stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this unit. The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep every night, and it felt like we were staying at home. The unit is very spacious and kept up very well. Our favorite part was the lanai overlooking the ocean. We spent every morning and evening there. The sunsets were absolutely stunning.

They provided us with some basics like soap and our first brew of coffee, linens and beach towels. We loved everything about this unit. We would definitely return in the future! Thank You!

Owner's Response: Aloha Danelle, Nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we agree that this home is very nice but the best feature is the lanai with its outstanding ocean and sunset views. We hope that when you return to Maui that you consider one of our homes and take advantage of our return guest discount. Mahalo, Dan

Royal Kahana

  • 3 of 5

The condo is very well kept up, beautifully furnished, clean, has a great view of the water, and is within walking distance to shops and restaurants. That's why we keep coming back to the Royal Kahana! However, the noise on this trip was very annoying. The gas-powered blowers would start their engines every morning and keep howling throughout the day. Also, the resort seemed to have a lot of kids visiting this time who wanted to stretch the posted quiet times. So sad to see the beach completely eroded away!

Owner's Response: Aloha Charlene, We are sorry about the noise issues that you experienced. We are hoping that the resort managment will address the start times with the landscaping company. It is sad that our beach has been compromised however the resorts fronting Kahana Beach are in the process of instituting a beach renourishment/ protection plan to alleviate the erosion that occurs during the fall/winter months. Hopefully it will be completed within the next 24-36 months. Mahalo, Dan
