Beautiful, Clean, and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! As others have mentioned, the Royal Kahana is an older building, but this particular condo is updated and very clean. The view is world class, looking directly over to Molokai. We saw a ton of whales from the lanai every day. I do recommend binoculars though. If you're looking to whale watch from your lanai, it doesn't get much better than this. The channel between Maui and Molokai is like a humpback whale highway, and this condo looks directly in that direction. Keep in mind whale watching is a winter activity.

The condo is equipped with AC, but we only used it one or two nights out of twelve. There is a wonderful breeze with the lanai doors open and there are windows in the front of the condo that you can open to promote even more air flow (sometimes too much depending on how strong the trade winds are.) Kitchen was well stocked and equipped. There really isn't anything you can't cook in it, short of deep frying a turkey.

If you are looking to book activities for your vacation, the concierge at the Royal Kahana is world class. Our first morning there, we walked downstairs just in time to be invited to a presentation of the different activities and excursions they can book. Coffee, pastries, and fresh juice was included. They do not pressure you into making any purchases, it is simply informative. And we found that their pricing was similar to if not cheaper than we found booking in advance online.

As was mentioned in almost every other review, there is no beach in front of the condo. You can still catch an amazing sunset from the pool area or lounging on the provided lawn chairs that look over the ocean. One of our favorite beaches was a 5-10 minute walk down the road next to an overlook. It was very small but beautiful, and there was a monk seal hanging out there the first time we arrived. The popular beaches are a short drive away though.

There are convenience stores and restaurants within walking distance. We recommend getting a pizza from Dollie's Pub and Cafe, it will not disappoint and you'll probably have leftovers. We also recommend eating at Miso Phat Sushi which is in the same shopping center as Dollie's, but be prepared to wait a little while for a table.

My only recommendation for the owner is to take a look at the bed frame. The bed is comfortable but the frame looked to be supported by wooden blocks and it was falling off of them, leaving the bed angled downward.

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.

Owner's Response: Aloha Paul, glad to hear that the home met your expectations and we apologize about the tennis courts. We will be on island during May for homeowners meetings and we are hoping that they will be adressed at that time. There is a beach restoration plan being pursued for Kahana Bay however shoreline projects move very slowly due to permitting etc. We hope that you will consider staying with us in the future and taking advantage of our return guest discount.

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.
