*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.

Royal Kahana Room 505

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time watching the wales from our lanai every morning as we drank coffee. This studio had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It was cozy and well maintained. Although we knew about it ahead of time, it was a little sad to see the beach completely washed away. The large black sandbags along the shore to prevent errosion distracted the view a bit. I don't play tennis so it wasn't much of an issue to me, but those ugly unused decaying tennis courts should be torn down by the management. All in all, it was a comfortable place to stay and a good home base for checking out other parts of the island. My wife and I would consider staying there again.

  • 5 of 5

We found Shelly and Dan to very helpful and made check in and check out a breeze. The unit has an ocean view and we were able to whale watch from the balcony. For the sunset, you had to walk downstairs but boy was it worth it!!! The bed, perhaps the most comfortable bed I have slept in. No one was more surprised than me. It was fantastic. I nothing negative and would love to return some day!!!

Come see all that Maui has to offer! A sunset cruise around the island makes for a perfect romantic evening. If you’re curious about what goes on under the waves, snorkeling tours are a great way to view the incredible variety of life that lives under the surface of the ocean. If you don’t want to get wet, there’s even a submarine that can take you into the deeps while you view its mysteries from the comfort of a warm cabin. Helicopter tours are an excellent way to take in views of the whole island, including incredible waterfalls, sea cliffs and forests you would be hard pressed to view on foot. For those looking for a little more excitement, you can take an ATV tour or Zipline adventure, drive the road to beautiful Hana or watch the sunrise from Haleakala. Enjoy Maui's fabulous luaus (We recommend the Old Lahaina Luau), restaurants – you must try the Sunday brunch at the Ka’anapali Beach Resort), shops, art galleries and spas! These tours and others can be arranged at the wonderful Concierge’s desk located in our main lobby at the Royal Kahana Resort. Maui is also a wonderful Island to explore on your own. You can make the morning drive up to Haleakala Sunrise. You can even bike ride down the volcano! I’ve not taken that ride, but my brother in-law has and said it was a great experience. I have driven to the seven sacred pools, several times and plan to go again – it’s a wonderful trip.
