Best hotels on Maui


1. Ka’anapali Beach Club by Diamond Resorts

For those seeking a resort style experience without breaking the bank, look no further the Ka’anapali Beach Club. With deals available such as four nights for $399, you’ll be able to enjoy the resort experience without crying out for an ATM. Operated by Diamond Resorts, the club is conveniently located on Maui’s western coast and is a little more than 10 minutes away from downtown Lahaina. This makes this property an ideal choice for those that want to be on the beach but also would like some of the urban amenities that Lahaina is famous for like great restaurants and local dive shops on Maui.

2. Royal Lahaina Resort

If you think two pools might not be enough for your next trip, don’t worry, the Royal Lahaina Resort has you covered, the resort has three pools on its property in addition to a full-service spa that offers up luxurious massages and treatments. But that isn’t all that the Royal Lahaina has to offer, guests can also enjoy unique experiences such as Luaus and Ukulele lessons, all without leaving the property. 

Good deals are available, like the “Royal Experience” package, which has been reduced to just $415 a night and includes room, breakfast, a sunset cruise and tickets to the “Myths of Maui Luau” for two.

3. The Westin Maui Resort & Spa

Westin is a hotel brand that is synonymous with luxury around the world, and the Westin Maui Resort & Spa is no exception. The resort’s pool area is aptly dubbed an “oasis” and stretches over nearly 90,000 square feet. The pool area is lushly landscaped and shaded by copious palm trees and guests should reserve a poolside cabana to make their own little private hideout. The Westin is only a six-minute jaunt by car to our dive shop and downtown Lahaina.

An ocean tower guest room with a king-sized bed starts at $512 dollars a night.

4. Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa

For golf enthusiasts, hitting the links for some oceanfront golf probably sounds like a Hawaiian dream come true and it’s a dream that can easily be made a reality for guests of the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa. Besides a round of golf, guests can look forward to luxurious on-property dining options, a full spa and a family friendly pool area that includes water features that children and adults alike will love.

The property offers many packages for those looking to bundle their accommodation with airfare or anniversary packages. A king bedroom will start at $459 a night, though Hyatt members will be able to realize additional savings.

5. Honua Kai Resort & Spa

Something that the Honua Kai Resort & Spa has in common with other properties on this list you may have noticed is their shared prime location on the Ka’anapali beach. This beach is one of the best for recreation anywhere on the Hawaiian Islands. The Honua Kai resort’s location is actually even more ideally situated on the famous North Beach, which makes it ideal for those looking to enjoy the area’s pristine beaches and maybe get in a diving session (or two!) during their trip. And at just an eight-minute car ride from our dive shop, we can promise to have you in the water in no time.

The resort itself is filled with the luxurious trappings you have come to expect from a Maui oceanfront resort. The property is spread over 30+ acres of oceanfront property and includes a 3-acre interconnected pool area that offers multiple pools, hot tubs, and fountains for children to frolic and play under. 

King sized studio suites start at $607 dollars a night, but Hawaii residents can enjoy the Kama’aina (local) savings discount, which is something that anyone thinking of staycation should know about! 

Sheraton Maui Resort Spa

6. Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa

If you think you might tire of the white sandy beaches around the Kaanapali Beach area (Spoiler alert: you won’t!), it’s good to know that the Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa offers a unique lagoon-style pool for its guests. One of the resort’s best features is the Cliff Dive Grill that offers multiple delicious cuisines and includes fun activities such as nightly torch lightings, cliff dives off of Black Rock and hula dancing with live music.

Rates start at $493 dollars a night for a resort view double room, though members are able to unlock additional savings.

7. Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea

A Four Seasons resort for many is the pinnacle of luxury, and the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea exemplifies this expectation to a tee. Pictures of the resort have to be seen to be believed. Tucked away on the island’s southwestern coast, the resort is filled with thoughtful and romantic gestures that make it perfect for couples looking to relax. One example would be the resort’s adults only infinity pool, which allows guests the chance to soak and swim while enjoying uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean. 

8. North Shore Hostel

Those that are looking for a less luxurious, and cheaper, experience for your next trip to Maui should consider the North Shore Hostel as an excellent choice. While the hostel may not come with all the bells and whistles of a beachfront resort, guests will still be able to enjoy all the convenience of the a Wailuku location (right next to the central bus station) at a considerable discount over resort prices. The Hostel promises a safe, clean and friendly place to rest your head after a long day of enjoying all that Maui has to offer.

So, if you can handle forgoing things like a 24-hour front desk and pool, the hostel is a good way to stay in the heart of Maui and save some money in the process. This makes North Shore Hostel a good choice for families looking to save money to put towards a once-in-a-lifetime Maui experience, like whale watching or a guided shore dive. 

North Shore Hostel rates start at $109 dollars a night for a standard triple room and $99 dollars a night for an economy triple room. 

9. Aston Kaanapali Shores

For those looking to hit the sweet spot between ultra-resort luxury and hostel accommodations, the Aston Kaanapali Shores may strike the perfect balance. The Aston offers amenities such as a pool and spa and has a prime location on the Ka’anapali beach. The pool area has recently been renovated to include multiple new water features, LED lights for nighttime swimming and beautifully landscaped tropical gardens and waterfalls.

Deals include a bed and breakfast package from $204 dollars a night, regular room rates can start at $220 dollars a night.

10. Castle Paki Maui

This 3-star hotel is another great choice for those looking to economize on their next trip without forgoing luxury completely. Castle Paki Maui is named one of the best oceanfront values on the Ka’anapali coast by trip advisor and guests will be able to enjoy resort amenities such as a heated pool and BBQ area. The best part about the property is the panoramic views it affords of the spectacular Hawaiian sunsets that only look like they cost a million bucks.

A one-bedroom garden view room starts at $149, and an oceanfront studio room is only $30 dollars more at $179 a night.
