Honua Kai Resort & Spa is located on Maui, voted by Conde Nest Traveler as the Best Island in the World fourteen times. Honua Kai is the first condominium development on Ka’anapali Beach in 25 years on the last developable parcel of land on beautiful Ka’anapali Beach.
The main airport of Kahului International Airport is 40 minutes drive from Honua Kai and connects Maui with major cities all over the world. Kapalua airport is just five minutes away and connects Maui with the other Hawaiian Islands.
Five minutes south is Whalers Village where you will find world class shopping and restaurants. Ten minutes south you will be in historic Lahaina with all its ancient whaling history, harbor, great restaurants and scenic walks. Ten minutes north you can be away from it all in a completely undeveloped area where you can find scenic walks, wonderful snorkeling and scuba diving and a way of life which has not changed with the development of Hawaii.
Maui really is the perfect island where you can enjoy numerous activities and stay busy all day long, or you can do nothing but sit on the beach, go snorkeling and listen to the trade winds in the palm trees!
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Honua Kai is located on 40 acres of oceanfront property at the north end of Ka’anapali Beach. No expense has been spared in creating a luxurious, yet low key and relaxing resort.
The Resort offers all the amenities and services of a luxury hotel combined with our spacious condo where you can entertain, relax, or sit out on the lanai and feel like you are completely at home!
The resort has a gourmet deli/market where you can order snacks and sandwiches or purchase that bottle of wine you forgot at the store. If you decide to eat out, the resort boasts the famous Duke’s Restaurant where you can eat breakfast watching the whales breach (from November to April), have a casual lunch or a gourmet dinner watching the sun sink into the Pacific Ocean. If neither of these appeal, then use the ocean front barbeques and cook your own meals before eating them on the beach or from your own spacious lanai.
If you enjoy working out, the resort has it’s own fitness room or go for a run on the pristine beach or boardwalk which stretches for miles all along Ka’anapali Beach.
The Resort has a full time activities desk from where you can book all your activities and entertainment.
Honua Kai really is your luxurious home away from home. It is a stunning resort in a stunning location. Come and enjoy an ideal family vacation, the perfect honeymoon, or a perfect few days/weeks to relax, unwind and get away from it all.

We first came to Maui for our honeymoon and have been coming back ever since. Maui has special memories for us as we have loved each visit to this beautiful island. We have been blessed with three children who are now leaving home. For all of us Maui is a place to get away from our busy schedules and enjoy 'family time'. The memories of our kids as toddlers enjoying the tide pools and now wanting to go surfing and enjoy the night life and social scene always bring smiles to our faces! We hope you enjoy Maui as much as we do and have equally happy memories.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2010
This was our third visit to Honua Kai. Unit 645 is as presented - prime location on the sixth floor with wonderful views of the ocean. The unit is in terrific condition and the owner and property manager are great to deal with.
This unit is perfect for families looking for a resort feel, with all of the benefits of a condominium. The unit has a great ocean view from the 6th floor and offers a great indoor/outdoor living option with the huge sliding doors to the lanai. Our kids had a great time at the resort pools, as well as going to the beach which is a short walk from the resort. Also, its a good location on Maui's west side of the island. We found this unit o be perfect for our family of 5 and will be renting again the next time we are in Maui.
The condo is awesome, well appointed with everything you need, and is in 1st class condition. The unit is located on the 6th floor which gets you up above the palm trees so you have a great view of the ocean. (Unit is also close to the elevator so getting in and out was easy and convenient!) We visited during prime time for whale watching, so every morning we would have breakfast out on the lanai and watch whales spouting and breaching! It was fantastic!
Honua Kai is a great resort and is only a couple years old. We snorkeled right out on our beach and saw lots of fish, sea turtles and eels. We rented equipment on site at the activities desk. It is also well-located and minutes from other West Maui must-see beaches and other awesome snorkeling sites (Oneloa Bay, Honolua Bay, Nakalele Blowhole, Olivine Pools). There is a boardwalk that goes all the way down to Black Rock at the Sheraton...great for a walk or jog. Turns out that the restaurant on the property, Dukes, is one of best on the island and we highly recommend it.
Peter, the owner, was great to deal with, very responsive and helpful in recommending activities and sights.
A perfect condo for families. I was really impressed with communication and customer service from both the condo owner and the property management. They ensured we had a pleasing, worry- free experience at the Honua Kai resort.
No need to bring beach towels, chairs, a cooler etc.They have it all.
A playpen is provided (just bring the sheets with you).
Big comfortable beds and bathrooms.
Liked that garbage bags, dish detergent, laundry detergent and some of the necessities were provided and plentiful.
Free calls to the mainland and Canada.
The lanai is amazing. Plenty of room to spread out, watch the ocean, read a book and have a glass of wine. Sheltered from the wind.
Short walking distance to a full service grocery store (T-Market). Property management is also located by the grocery store should you need help with anything.
Excellent coffee and gelato on the main floor.
Tons of pools as well as green space for the kids to play. Bring a ball or a frisbee. They'll have plenty of room to run.
Go for a stroll on the beach walk to the other side of black rock where sea turtles can be found on a daily basis. Then enjoy lunch with the family at the Hula Grill barefoot bar located at Whaler's Village (also within walking distance).
While you can pay for underground parking, there is a lot outside the lobby that looked free.
Across the street from the resort is a Avis and Budget car rental. If you don't want a car for your entire stay, this makes it convenient to take a car for the day to explore the island.
Gorgeous sunsets and amazing place for star gazing on the beach.
If you read through several reviews on the Honua Kai you'll find a common complaint to be that the wind picks up here. As a result we spent quite a bit of time moving further down the beach on Kanaapali to enjoy our family time. The pools are great, but we found it too breezy to lie around on beach chairs. Head back up to the room and enjoy the lanai which shelters you from the wind and provides plenty of sunshine.
I give this property an excellent rating because I don't think you'll find this quality of condo for the price anywhere else in the area. Everything is within walking distance and easily accessible. So it's a 5 star from me!
Honua Kai is a 45 Minute Drive from Kahului Airport.
