*Beach information

The beach fronting the Royal Kahana experiences seasonal ocean current changes that influence the beach’s physical appearance and size. During the fall and winter, it is not uncommon that these currents sweep away a very large amount of sand, which will gradually return back in spring and summer, based on the ocean's current activity. Our homeowners Assoc., The County of Maui, and the State of Hawaii are working diligently to return Kahana Bay to its full potential.

This circumstance, unfortunately, affects the accessibility of our valued guests to the beach. While there may not be, at times, direct access from the property to the beach during the fall and winter season, there is a public beach access within 5 minutes walking distance.

Our guests' safety is of the utmost concern for us. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

You can stay updated on our ocean front access by viewing our web page, rkmaui(dot)com, and checking the postings on the homepage. We update the postings as soon as we receive new information from the resort.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Unit #1009 at the Royal Kahana Resort was the perfect condo for our trip to Maui. It is perfectly appointed and all the amenities you could hope for. Heavenly views from the lanai, great snorkeling right outside your door, and visiting sea turtles a few yards out from the beach. The owner left a welcome note for us upon arrival and 2 days later called to meet us. The location is great for anything you might want to do. Close to Lahaina as well as anything you might want to do on the North shore. Only 30 min. from the airport . I would highly encourage any one to make this unit your travel destination while visiting Maui.

So impressed...I'm ready to go back tomorrow!!

  • 5 of 5

The place was absolutely prefect! As described to a T! There wasn't one thing we need to buy or we missed that our home in WA had. The patio view was as good. I already miss having our morning coffee on the deck and watching the resident turtles come swimming by! (Every morning) I also want to say how nice it was to have coffee there for our first pot of coffee the next morning. It allowed us time to go shopping the next day. The owners were fantastic as well. Excellent communication and they prepared us well for the trip. Will defiantly rent from them again :)

Great condo. Would highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Condo is exactly as pictured in photos. Very clean and views from the lanai are beautiful. Building is nice with ample parking. Our room was very quiet, we never heard anyone else. The beach area is small, but gets larger in front of the hotels immediately to the south.

Kitchen had everything we needed for meals. Lanai had 4 chairs which was great for our family to sit and eat outside. My only con is the sofa bed is what you'd expect from a sofa bed; ok for one or two nights, but not comfortable for a week. My daughter found it comfortable, but the rest of us did not (we rotated throughout the week).

Shelly was very responsive and easy to work with. We would definitely book with them again.

Owner's Response: Hi Judi, we are happy that you had an enjoyable stay and sorry about the sofa bed, as you said they are not ideal long term. The Royal Kahana is ideal for families that want to enjoy the quieter parts of Maui yet still be within a few minutes drive of world class beaches and restaurants. Mahalo, Dan

Beautiful Apartment and Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is very clean and well-furnished. The kitchen is well-stocked. We enjoyed breakfasts and dinner on the balcony, cool breezes, lapping waves, stunning views. We plan to return.

the condo was dated, view spectacular

We were disappointed at the site of the erosion, knowing that it's no ones fault, perhaps the fees should reflect the state of the property and pool area.

Owner's Response: Rosemarie, Thank you for your note. As you are aware as a returning guest of ours; in 2015, all of Kahana Bay experienced some of the worst storms in history. All of Maui experienced some beach erosion. Kahana Bay was hit hard and yes, we did lose some of our beach. At times, we have more beach then other times. Right now (Dan and I just left Maui), we have a beautiful beach. The last few years from April – November, we have beach access. The winter months, we get a NW swell that takes away a good part of our beach. We are working with the County, the State and the nine resorts along the bay to restore the bay to its former glory. We are well into a multimillion-dollar project. We make sure all of our guests are aware of the erosion through our VRBO post, our FB page; rkmaui and our website; rkmaui (dot) com. We have eight homes, and are the managers of eight more for friends of ours all at the Royal Kahana. This particular home is one of my parents. Each home is uniquely decorated in the style reflecting the islands and the owner. I am surprised that you thought this one-bedroom oceanfront home was dated. I am pleased you enjoyed the unobstructed oceanfront view. It is amazing. As I mentioned, Dan and I were just on-island. In fact, my stepmother and I had the pleasure of meeting you in the home. The pool deck was repainted in late May perhaps that was after you left. With the salt water and ocean air, our management team is always working on updating the resort. I wish you had shared your concerns with me then. Our pool is beautiful, one of the few heated pools on the island. As always, we invite all our prospective guests to look at all of our homes on our website. The pictures accurately reflect each specific home. The Royal Kahana is in a great location, our homes are beautiful and there are so many great beaches and activities to explore on the Island. As far as the rates are concerned, we do constantly monitor our rates and our prices are among the best, reflecting the season, and the resort. I expect our rates to increase as our shoreline is returned. I am also pleased that you were able to take advantage of our returning guest discount. I do hope we can welcome you back again. Mahalo

Amazing time in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived during one of the largest rain storms in recent history. The aloha spirit was alive and well. We did our shopping during the rain and were greeted to a beautiful sunrise the following day. The condo was perfect with beautiful views of the whales playing and constant breezes blowing in. The condo was nicely equipped an exactly as advertised. While the beach is currently nonexistent, the pool area is nice and the barbeques work great. There are great beaches minutes away. If you are looking for a nice adventure we recommend Alii Nui. This is a sailing ship that is first class. We enjoyed a sunset cruise and a snorkel trip with them. They also do whale watching and Molikini trips. The best thing is they pick up and deliver you back to the Royal Kahana so you don't have to drive. The food was great and all the drinks top shelf.

We also did the sunrise on Haleakala as well as a waterfall tour on the road to Hana. Everything was terrific. We managed to screw up our reservations to the condo but Shelly and Dan really helped us out and were able to accommodate the additional day.

You can't go wrong with this condo if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, and very relaxing place to stay while visiting Maui.
