How to Get There
We went to Maui as a group of 9- 4 families, and couldn't decide between a hotel or a renting a house. This was the perfect compromise. It had the amenities of a hotel, but full kitchen, etc of a house. There are 2 towers and all of our group was able to stay in separate condo's/apartments in the same tower making family meals and gatherings perfect. It is great there are multiple options - 1/2/3 bedrooms and the space in each is more than adequate. Top of the line appliances and dishwasher, dish soap, and laundry detergent was included. Super nice housekeeping staff. Very helpful concierge. Unbelievable photo group with awesome family photos taken. Impressed how environmentally conscience everyone (everyone on Hawaii) is. Would stay again without hesitation if I went back to Maui.
We absolutely loved staying at Honua Kai. We had a two bedroom condo facing the beach/ocean. There were 2 couples in the condo. We had plenty of space. The Lanai was amazing and made our trip extra special. We also really liked that our condo had beach chairs, boogie boards, and a cooler for us to use. The valet service was so easy to use and the staff was extremely friendly!
We also enjoyed that the boardwalk was a little quieter and not jammed packed with tourists like in front of other resorts closer to Whalers village. And finally, having Dukes on property was an added bonus. Highly recommend the Honua Kai!
We stayed in the 6 brm (two 3 bedroom condos next to each other) through vrbo. The condos were the best stocked condos we have ever stayed in including instant pot and 2 blenders. The only thing that was missing was a Brita filter. We were able to cook in the condo several nights for a large group without issues. The valet service there was also great with a large family. The pools were nice to have on property and the location only 2 miles to whalers village you can’t beat. There is a shuttle that you can utilize, which we did not. Resort had very nice amenities including getting your own towels with your wrist key and wrist band key to get into your room. We throughly enjoyed the lanai watching the whales and enjoying the view as well. Would absolutely stay here again with a large group or even just my husband.
I would highly recommend this resort, it was my first time to Maui and honestly I'm pretty easy to please, but it was magic. We traveled with 9 people and 5 of us shared a 2 bedroom suite which gave us ample room to all hang out in and cook and eat meals together. The pools were fun for the kids, the beach access is great and we all loved boogie boarding there. The little store downstairs was convenient and there is lots of shopping nearby, great location!
Booked a 2 BR suite through VRBO. Suite was amazing, furnishings were excellent, kitchen was full equipped and stocked for 5.
Buildings and grounds are nice, I would put them a little below other places we have stayed but they are still nice. Pools were well kept, some are starting to show wear.
BBQ's are great and located in easy access spots. Grocery and restaurants all around within a short drive.
A few Con's
Be warned, the lazy river is not a river, is a narrow shaped pool, big disappointment for our smaller one. There are multiple hot tubs, however small, were cloudy later in the day
My biggest complaint would be related to other guests. With the owner rented suites we found some guest treated them like a party suite. Loud music blaring out the lanai doors, empty beer and wine bottles rolling around on the Lanai. I found the resort did nothing about it. Also, compared to other resorts found the alcohol consumption to be high. Few can ruin it for the many. Some older guests did also complain vocally about kids being in the pool
Hotel staff were very friendly until they find out you are in an owner rented suite. Then they are quick to remind you that they are there for hotel guests. They will do what they can, but won't go above and beyond.
