Kaanapali Beach Hotel, Maui
Billing itself as Hawaii's "most Hawaiian hotel," the Kaanapali Beach Hotel puts hospitality and those little touches that make a hotel stay special at the top of its list of priorities. Set right on Kaanapali Beach, just a quarter mile from the shops at Whaler's Village and three miles from historic Lahaina, the property aims to make you feel like one of the family.
The hotel has 430 guest rooms located in four wings forming an ocean-facing horseshoe. All rooms feature sliding glass doors opening onto furnished, private lanais. Furniture both inside and on the lanai is in island-style wicker and rattan. The rooms are simply decorated with Hawaiian island prints and bed spreads. Amenities include compact refrigerators, coffeemakers and ceiling fans. Two of the four wings of the building do not have elevators, though they are only three stories high.
The hotel is close to some excellent golf courses, including a PGA tour standard course. Directly on the hotel grounds, complimentary recreational activities are offered such as lauhala weaving and poi making, a children's program and nightly Hawaiian music and hula shows. There is also a whale-shaped pool with space for lounging and a giant checkers board. Along with the welcoming attitude of the staff, these activities have helped to earn the hotel its reputation as a family friendly holiday destination.
Three restaurants are located on the premises. The Tiki Terrace Restaurant with its Hawaiian artifacts and Polynesian décor specializes in regional cuisine at breakfast and dinner times. Meanwhile the Kaanapali Mixed Plate Restaurant is a more casual family affair open throughout the day. Finally the poolside Tiki Bar & Grill offers sandwiches, burgers, salads, smoothies and cocktails. Here, complimentary Hawaiian music and hula shows take place every night of the week. Other dinner shows are also staged at intermittent times.
Weddings and special events are also catered for at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel. A catering service can be provided for such occasions.
