Honua Kai is the newest premier resort in one of the most desirable locations, far enough from the crowds, yet walking distance to everything. It is located in the most northern portion of Kaanapali.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have been coming to Maui for over 10 years, and have always been attracted to Kaanapali, especially this location. We feel a sense of serenity every time we visit Maui and have been blessed to enjoy Honua Kai and allow others to enjoy our magical place.

Why the Owner Chose Honua Kai:
Honua Kai is located in one of our most favorite spots in Hawaii. Our studio offers a great location in the primary building, on the 3rd floor, with serene views of the grounds, pool, beach, ocean and Lanai. We are meticulous about our home, and our guests will not be disappointed with the quality, appointments and service!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Enjoy a serene vacation at Maui's newest most luxurious resort... Honua Kai: 'Honua' means planet earth or stable ground; 'Kai' is the South Pacific Ocean as seen from the shores of Kaanapali disappearing beyond the horizon, past Molokai and Lanai, and into what ancient Hawaiians called the 'Great Sea of Eternity. The sea, sand and gentle warm breezes welcome you, and the Aloha spirit abounds you. Honua Kai has all the amenities of a new 5-star hotel combined with the comfort of a private residence. no wonder HONUA KAI RESORT & SPA has become the hottest place for travelers. The 38 acres of lush, landscaped grounds containing both tranquil areas and also an expansive aquatic playground is rated as one of the top beachfront luxury resorts in Maui. From the moment you arrive, there is a seamless indoor outdoor living, as seen in the lobby area that opens up to the beautiful lush landscaping and stunning views. Honua Kai caters to so many with the many amenities: an infinity-edge pool with cabanas, aqua loungers, pool side beverage and food service, hot tubs, swim-under waterfalls, ‘lazy river’, child’s pool area with sand bottom and water slide, activity center with rentals, day and night child care (ages 3+), 10 outdoor Viking gas grills areas and on site gourmet market and Duke's restaurant. We fell in love with this place because of the location, views, serenity, and amenities. We love the studio as it offers a cozy yet roomy space. We love the view from the sitting area and Lanai -- resort, tiki torches, pool, ocean, sunsets, lanai and the palm trees swaying in the breeze.
