"This was my partner and my first time in Hawaii and we decided to stay in Maui because of great recommendations about the island. When we discovered Kihei Surfside we instantly knew it was beyond perfect for our stay. Diana was incredibly helpful with every question we had (we were travelling from Australia) and we were able to arrive on the island with confidence and start our trip relaxed and stress-free.
The suite itself is absolutely beautiful and was an extra romantic option for us; with a king sized bed, top floor views of the breathtaking scenery, and lots of mirrors to be able to admire my partner at all angles of the room! As a young 24 year old couple, it had everything we needed to make the most of our stay, with every imaginable utensil and appliance available to us. We were able to do a grocery shop and maximise our time in our suite, enjoying romantic homemade dinners on the lanai, watching the sunset over the ocean.
Kihei Surfside is an amazing resort with more options than we even thought we would make use of! But oh boy, did we love every aspect of it. The beach, just meters away, was unreal and stretched a lot longer than most beaches in the area. The water was always warm and there was plenty of space for lounging on the sand without being surrounded by others. On the main side of the resort is a lush and beautiful grassy area which we ended up spending more time on. It was a peaceful spot for sun-baking by the seaside without getting sandy or for making use of the BBQ and enjoying the sunset. There is also a trail that winds along a rocky cliff-side that made for great early-morning walks and exploring the other beaches (which were not as great as Kihei Surfside's beach but still nice).
We rented a car at the airport from Thrifty Car Rental which was the another great decision we made (second to staying here). There was plenty of parking at the resort and Maui's #1 beach (according to one website), Makena beach, was a short drive away and we returned on several occasions. There are great restaurants and shops nearby and the supermarket was only a 2 minute drive up the road and it was so convenient we returned on a daily basis to get extra supplies.
Overall, this was everything we could have ever hoped for on a romantic and I am so grateful for how much closer I feel with my partner after such an indescribable experience. We were so sad to leave the paradise island and return to reality!"
