Visit Maui: Ka`anapali Beach Hotel

A few months ago I visited Maui for the first time in nearly 2 years, as the recently-renovated Ka`anapali Beach Hotel graciously hosted me and a few other media friends for a fun 24 hours in Maui.

This oceanfront hotel, which has been recognized as “HawaiĘ»i's Most Hawaiian Hotel,” intertwines modern comforts and conveniences with local culture, allowing guests to immerse themselves in paradise while learning about Hawai`i's history and traditions.

All throughout the hotel you'll find significant cultural items on display, and the hotel also offers daily cultural lessons, so guests can learn about navigation, hula, or how to play the ukulele. 

The refreshed rooms have Hawaiian-themed artwork, upgraded bedding, and redone bathrooms.

I loved the stand-up shower and the ample vanity space.

The beds were plush, and the mini fridge came in very handy.

Ceiling fans and air conditioning make sure you stay comfy while in the room.

The lanai opened up to a pretty view of the lush landscape.

On property is Huihui Restaurant, where you can indulge in a menu incorporating various local ingredients as well as new spins on island favorites (read my reviews of our breakfast and dinner).

On site you'll also find a whale-shaped pool, a kanakapila (musical performance) that takes place three times a week, native plants, and so much more. 

Beachside paths making morning and evening strolls just stunning.

You can easily walk to nearby shops and restaurants while enjoying the beautiful views.

On the day of departure, guests are invited to a lei ceremony at which all guests get a kukui nut lei.  Returning guests have a white kukui nut restrung onto their lei, and it was so neat to see some guests with a majority of their lei with white kukui nuts.  

During the ceremony, guests are welcome to share their experiences, and it was a really touching way for the hotel to not only thank guests, but also for the guests to thank employees.  The ceremony was full of warmth and aloha - I've never experienced such a meaningful departure before.

I hope to be able to bring my family to Ka`anapali Beach Hotel!
