Honua Kai Resort & Spa
- What's Included
My family and I spent the first week of January at the beautiful Honua Kai in Maui. We truly enjoyed our stay here. We have an oceanview room, which I highly recommend because you can watch the sunset each night. Every staff member we encountered was very nice and so helpful. We enjoyed going down to the little store in the hotel to get their gelato. Their flavors rotate daily and they were delicious. The suite itself was modern and clean. We had no complaints with our room. You can occasionally hear the construction noise in the daytime when you are outside on the resort propoerty but we had no issues with it. Most of the time we didn't even notice it. The only downside to this resort unfortunately is the beach. It's beautiful but terrible for swimming. Even with shoes on the clarity of the water is not great so it's very hard to see what's around you. And the rocks in the water are very uneven and vary in height so you don't know when you will run into them. I saw one poor girl who had slashed the entire length of her foot on the rock. With that said, this is my first time to Maui so I'm not sure if all the beaches are like this on the island or if it was more specific to this particular area. The pools are nice, a little cold though. Duke's restaurant on site is good. Little pricey but nothing we weren't expecting. It was a wonderful stay and I would definitely consider staying here again if I am fortunate enough to get to return to Maui.
Our family stayed in H215 for a week over Christmas break. The condo was large enough that we rented a twin bed, split the king into twins in one room and were able to sleep 3 individually in there. We had a king in the second bedroom and one child on the pullout couch. The condo is beautiful and this is an extra large unit appointed with everything you could need. The only downsize is the oversized balcony has a solid wall so when sitting you can't look out and enjoy the beautiful view. I would have preferred a smaller balcony with clear glass.The resort is clean and well maintained. It can be difficult to find a pool chair that acutally faces the pool unless you head out early. The website indicates "holding chairs" is not allowed, but people do. Also, you have to rent chairs or carry down your own beach chairs. There were a stack of chairs near the beach we thought went with the resort. My dad used a chair one day and was approached saying he had to pay for it. When we said we thought they were with he resort the man was quite rude to my father and stated we should have read the sign. We mentioned that neither of us saw a sign and he basically told us we didn't look close enough. We let him take the chair and I went back to look for the sign. There wasn't a big sign or even a small sign, there was no sign at all! The man was so rude I intended to complain to the resort, but eventually decided it wasn't worth my time. The restaurant onsite has good food, but a bit pricey. You can snorkel right off the beach, but a short walk on the boardwalk takes you to a much better snorkel site.This area is close to Lahaina if you have children who want to do a lot of activities.We would stay here again.
This is a lovely newer resort geared more for families than couples but we still enjoyed our stay. There are 3 different pools on the property to choose from but none of them are just for adults if that makes a difference to you. The grounds are kept up and it is a short walk to pools and/or beach. There is a restaurant on property - Dukes; food is excellent. There is a walkway along the resorts giving you access to other beaches and a place for an extended walk. The only real negative for us the trade winds on that side of black rock. Made visibility for snorkeling poor. That may keep us from returning next year.
Our family of four (Mom, Dad and 2 adult kids) stayed in HKK 812 for six nights. Our unit was exactly as pictured on the KBM Hawaii website. Our check in went smoothly except that the king sized bed in the secondary bedroom where our kids were staying had not been made into twin beds as we had previously requested. My son ended up sleeping on the foldout couch which he said was pretty comfortable. The KBM maintenance men cam up the next day and fixed the problem. We really enjoyed our balcony, which felt very private. Our mountain view was lovely and we didn't see or hear any construction.Our rooms were very quiet. We never heard any noise from any other units. The resort grounds are beautiful. There were a lot of kids staying at the resort, but we never felt it was overrun with kids. My family and I mostly used the quiet pool. There were generally plenty of chairs around the pool and we enjoyed the drink service. My only complaint is that there is no one at the resort monitoring the quiet pool. One day there were two young boys playing games in the quiet pool. I kept expecting someone from the resort to come around and ask the boys to go play in one of the other pools but no one ever came around to ask the boys to leave.We ate at Duke's twice during our stay. I highly recommend the bean nachos served during happy hour.We ate breakfast everyday in our rooms, and sometimes we ate lunch there as well.. We bought groceries at Safeway, which wasn't far from the resort. Their prices were reasonable.We enjoyed our stay at the Honua Kai and we would stay there again.
First off Maui is amazing. The weather was absolutely perfect in the mid 70s to 80s the entire 8 days we were there. The resort was just right. We had a 1 bed suit but it had 2 pull out couches for the kids to sleep on. Always clean. Housekeeping came every 2 days so you didn't feel hounded that they came in your room everyday which was nice. Concierge was very helpful. Only one complaint and it is very minor: the main pool was cold, but who needs a pool when you have so many beaches and can swim in the ocean. We cannot wait to get back!
