Beachfront condos and luxury hotels pepper Maui’s west side


Kihei – a long, narrow town, encompassing both Kihei and South Kihei – is home to a huge collection of condominiums. Complete with living area and a full kitchen, these units are great for families. Most complexes have a pool as well as a community barbecue area for grilling meals. Unlike a hotel, condominium units tend to vary in their amenities, since many are owned by individuals and rented out when the owners are not using them. Hale Kamaole has nice units and offers guests the use of bikes to explore the area. 


Before Kihei was populated with so many condominiums, most visitors stayed in Napili, Kaanapali, or Lahaina. These are still great locations with plenty of accommodations to choose from. For budget rooms, you’ll find the Best Western Pioneer Inn and the quaint Lahaina Inn. The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa, Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club, and Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas are great for visitors who prefer a familiar brand. In Napili, the Napili Kai is home to the weekly Slack Key Show hosted by Grammy winner George Kahumoku. 


Luxury accommodations are clustered in the Makena and Wailea area. Here you’ll find the posh Grand Wailea Resort, Makena Beach and Golf Resort, and a high-end boutique option, Hotel Wailea. 


There are some bed and breakfast options on Maui. The Plantation Inn, featuring charming turn-of-the-century architecture, is located right in the heart of downtown Lahaina. Lumeria Maui is situated just outside of Paia. The unique retreat features 24 newly renovated rooms in the former Fred C. Baldwin Memorial Home, originally built in 1909 to house retired cane workers. Daily yoga and meditation is complimentary for guests. In Paia town center is the Paia Inn with accommodations ranging from double rooms to a full cottage right on the beach. 


If you need to stay near the Kahului Airport, the Maui Seaside and the Maui Beach Hotel both offer basic accommodations.
