Hotel reservations in Maui come in every size and every budget, making it no surprise that the island has been voted "Best Island" by the readers of Conde Naste Traveler, for seventeen years.
The greatest selection of accommodations is available on the West and South sides of the islands, in Kapalua, Kaanapali, Kihei and Wailea.
Maui’s premiere resort area is Kapalua, a 23,000acre master planned resort community at the base of the Kahalawai Mountains. Here vacationers will find five bays and three sugary white sandy beaches, one of which was named "The Best Beach in America" by the University of Marylands Laboratory of Coastal Research. Kapalua boasts more than 20 boutiques, many award-wining restaurants, historic sites, two championship golf coursers, the ultra-sumptuous Ritz-Carlton Kapalua and many other luxury hotels & resorts. A stay in Kapalua is an experience in Maui’s lavish side.
Kaanapali Beach is one of Maui’s signature beaches and a destination sought after by vacationers from around the globe. It was the first planned resort community in Hawaii and today, is home to five hotels, six condominium villages, two championship golf courses and Whalers Village, an upscale shopping complex complete with restaurants, a whaling museum and free Hawaiian entertainment. Kaanapali’s most famous attraction is the daily cliff diving ceremony held at sunset on the Black Rock, the beach’s northernmost cliffs.
The Southwest shore of Maui is the sunniest and driest area of the Island and home to Kihei. This small community features six miles of beaches that provide views of Kahoolawe, Molokini, Lanai and West Maui. Swimming and surfing are prime here, along with snorkeling and kayaking. In town, vacationers will find a variety of affordable lodgings, ranging from small hotels to charming cottages. The area is also home to small shopping malls, a farmer’s market and a handful of restaurants. A little north of Kihei is Maalaea Bay, where vacationers can depart on whale watching expeditions, charter fishing excursions and snorkel trips to Molokini.
South Maui is also home to Wailea, a 1,500acre planned resort community with luxurious beaches, resorts and attractions. This ultra-extravagant area is known for its five spectacular beaches and the Wailea Blue, Wailea Gold and Wailea Emerald golf course that combine to make a championship 54-hole course. Within the town are five opulent resorts including the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, many distinctive condominiums and private vacation homes. World-class shopping and restaurants can be found at The Shops at Wailea.
