Experience Hawaii the way it was meant to be seen. This luxury condo in the beachfront Honua Kai resort is the perfect place to soak in some rays and recharge.
The Honua Kai Resort & Spa is located directly on the ocean at North Kaanapali Beach, and offers a variety of amenities (additional fees apply*). Gaze out your second-floor window (don't worry, an elevator means you won't have to deal with stairs) at the lush garden below and the West Maui Mountains in the distance. You could also head into Lahaina (five miles to the south) for a night on the town. If you're looking for amazing hiking trails, try the Pali Trail and the Waihee Trail in the West Maui Forest Reserve, which is only a few miles away.
The living room is cheery and welcoming, with light colors and fun geometric patterns. Turn on the TV and watch some cable, or rent a classic DVD and work your way through your movie list. If you like some of the photos you took at the beach earlier, log onto the WiFi and post them so the folks back home can see what you're doing.
Head out onto the expanded lanai to bask in the sun and enjoy the sight of the beautifully landscaped garden below. Sip your coffee in the early morning while watching the sun rise over the mountains, or enjoy a quiet moment overlooking the resort grounds. If it gets too warm, head back inside to cool off in the AC.
With a fully equipped kitchen, there's no need to venture far for a delicious meal. Plenty of space on the granite countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances make it a pleasant place to work. Chop up a tasty fruit salad and veggie plate with local produce, then slide the prep dishes into the dishwasher. If you want to have a barbecue, there are shared grills for your use.
Six guests will have a wonderful time at this upscale condo. The master bedroom has an entrance onto the lanai, an en suite master bathroom with double sinks, and a king bed. The second bedroom also has a king bed, which can be turned into two twins upon advance request. Both bedrooms have flatscreen TVs, in case you want to unwind at the end of a long day with a lighthearted movie. There's a sofabed in the living room for any extra guests. This condo is perfect for a family or a group of friends traveling together.
There are two bathrooms, so it's easy to wash the chlorine out of your hair after a swim in the pools. A private washer and dryer ensure that, even during long stays, you don't run out of clean clothes.
Honua Kai's amenities are unparalleled among Maui's resorts. In addition to more traditional pools, the winding river concept pool is a stunning place to swim, and the waterslide is sure to be a hit with the kids. If you're looking for more intense exercise, a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment gives you a place to keep up to date on your workouts. When you're done, soak in the hot tubs to loosen up your muscles.
The local seafood is absolutely not to be missed, and Duke's Beach House Restaurant (located right in Honua Kai Resort) has some of the best on the island. If you're there for breakfast, though, there is no better choice than the Onolicious French Toast. Besides one of the best restaurants in the area, Honua Kai also has one of the premier spas. Make sure to get a massage, or at least a skin treatment, while you're here.
Head to the sandy beach to wade in the splashing waves or build elaborate sandcastles (see if you can make turrets and crenellations!). If you're interested in trying scuba diving, there are some gorgeous views of underwater reefs to explore.
