An Oceanfront Landmark in the heart of Ka'anapali Beach, the Royal Lahaina Resort is renowned for its traditional Hawaiian ambiance and hospitality. Sitting on 27 acres of tropical foliage, this resort has a superb oceanfront location on an exclusive stretch of Ka'anapali Beach. The rooms are modern with luxury amenities and the theme is holokai, meaning Polynesian voyaging, reflecting on the importance of the canoe to Hawaiian culture. Enjoy three swimming pools, tennis, free scuba lessons & nightly entertainment, with one of the best Luau's in Lahaina.
Location: On Ka'anapali Beach, approximately 45 min from the Kahului airport.

Beach side hotel

This was a lovely hotel, although in quite a busy spot the hotel itself was peaceful and the garden beautifully kept.A stones throw from a lovely,quiet sandy beach and emerald sea.The hotel provides towels and we liked the taps and showers located near the beach to rinse off the sand after a dip. The room was fine, maybe a tad dated, we liked the toiletries- a touch of luxury,and staff were cheery and helpful.The hotel breakfast buffet was plentiful and varied. We enjoyed dining every evening whilst watching the most amazing sunsets from our table, followed by a little Hawaiian sundown dance .Live music and a Hawaiian dancer was atmospheric without being intrusive. The menu wasn't great for vegetarians but they were happy to adjust dishes to accomodate my needs,

Great place, good location, friendly staff.

This was my fourth trip to Maui, my first solo. This hotel provided everything I wanted for my trip. All I wanted to do this trip was relax. I didn't have high expectations of me leaving the hotel so, I wanted to find one that had great beaches, good food and a nice room. The Royal Lahaina meet all my requirements. The cost was reasonable, the hotel was clean, the food was good, the location was great and staff were accommodating. My travels lead me from my room, to the restaurant, to the beach, beach bar and back to my room was great. My stay was great. I would definitely recommend the Royal Lahaina.

April Vacation, Great Location!!

We just got back from a 10 day stay with the Royal Lahaina and overall we had a pretty good experience. Portions of the resort have had the potential to be really nice, but it depends what cards you’re dealt with upon check in. Upon arrival I was hoping the hotel staff would upgrade our room as we were spending 10 days with the resort, flying 15 hours and celebrating a recent engagement. Unfortunately we were given no upgrade and handed one of the few outdated and non-renovated cottages on the resort. We were offered a room upgrade later on, but that would have cost us $1,000+ more. Having even the smallest upgrade would have been nice but it’s really not a deal breaker for us. Because we were with the resort for 10 days, having a small kitchen would have been really helpful. Instead we were stuck managing our food and drinks with a small mini fridge in the bathroom. We spent several thousand on this vacation and a little extra would have gone a long way.I mentioned earlier that it really depends what cards you are dealt with upon check in. We spoke to several different couples that had different experiences upon check in. One couple had been upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite because they had to wait a few hours for a room. We spoke to another couple that paid full price and was given no upgrade upon arrival. So, it really just depends on the day. I have done a lot of research on prices, and if you can wait until “Black Friday” you can potentially get an excellent rate. Perhaps this is the reason we never saw any extras? You will find reading all the reviews that the biggest hassle and negative is the parking. 1st they charge $15 per night. If you booked your hotel prior to the rise in parking price, Management should be able to honor the $10. Personally, I think if you’re staying with the resort for 7+ days, it should be free. A big plus is that this is a no resort fee, but I feel like since they charge for parking, they make up for that “no fee”. Also keep in mind that if you plan on parking after 630-7p, its sometimes almost impossible to find a spot because you are now competing with the luau that the resort holds every day except for Saturdays. I was told that as a resort member you could get a free VIP upgrade, but I believe they have since gone away with that. Also keep in mind that there is not golf cart shuttle advertise by the staff from the parking lot. So if you need to do your groceries, go first thing in the morning and hopefully you can get a closer spot.The staff and grounds were exceptional. Everyone was really nice and I felt that the service was pretty good, despite the lack of any “freebies” or upgrades. I personally would like to commend Marc and the staff at the bar for doing such a fantastic job. We would come back night after night because of him. He was the first guy to greet us during happy hour and we could have not been happier. He would give all the free local advice and was always consistent with his drinks and food recommendations. I will say that this hotel really lacks on the pool and hot tub quality. It reminded me a lot of a budget hotel than a nice hotel or resort pool.Happy hour and the food (prices) are probably some of the best in the area. Something to keep in mind if you are on a budget. During our stay, it appeared that construction on the cottages were just about complete.If you are looking to stay away from the hustle and bustle that can be found on the opposite side of black rock, this is the place to be. The beach is really quite and never crowded. Be aware that if you have small children, the current and slope in the water can be pretty dramatic at times. If you want to snorkel, it’s a quick 7min walk to the reef, and it’s free! (If you’re facing the ocean, walk to your right.)If you anticipate making multiple visits to this resort, look at signing up for the free hotel membership. We were supposed to get two free cocktails upon arrival and a few other things like a fruit basket but we never got them. Overall we had a good experience and the location is really perfect. There is a Safeway (24hrs) not too far from the resort, and it’s an easy walk to whaler’s village for shopping and dining. You will be happy when you walk through all the major resorts that Royal Lahaina is the resort you are staying at. It is so busy and crowded at the big name hotels. If you are looking for a good value hotel, that has a great location and good atmosphere, this is the place to be. And if you can somehow pull off a ocean front upgrade or reservation, its incredible!

A splash of heaven

This resort is fantastic! Among its local peers, it is one of the nicest in terms of scenery and views. The beach is stunning and the overall experience has been great for our honeymoon. Definitely recommend.

Excellent location

This was our fifth stay at the Royal Lahaina. The location of the hotel is great. I requested a room with two beds well in advance, but when we arrived they stated none were available and one would be ready the next day and they would upgrade us to an ocean view. The next day there was a room with two beds, but it was not an upgrade. Not a big deal, but we had to pack all our belongings up (traveling with a child) and move. Also, when I booked 2 months before, the parking rate was stated at $10 a day but when we arrived, it was $15 a day. Again, not a huge deal, but a little annoying. Do be aware that the parking at the Royal Lahaina is really bad. Most afternoons all the parking was taken and we had to drive around until someone left to find a spot.Overall the Royal Lahaina is a good hotel. We enjoy it as it has a nice Hawaiian style and is not a luxury type hotel or resort. It is on a great stretch of beach.
