Great January Getaway
My wife and I have been coming to Maui for 10 years and have frequently stayed at Honua Kai. This was our first time in this unit. It was very nicely equipped and the partial ocean view gave nice sunsets during this time of the year. KBM made late checkin a breeze. Overall only good things to say about the vacation (although the false alarm missile threat was very disturbing).
Would not stay here again
Let me begin by saying we are well-traveled have been to Maui more than 20 times . We were Really disappointed by this hotel – the unit we stayed in wasn’t clean to our standards. Mold in the shower, toilet ran constantly, sofa felt dirty and tattered, kitchen cabinets need good wipe down. The hallway smelled of trash entire time we were here to the point that you would hold your breath when walking by the trash room. The gym was pathetic, very small, little equipment, broken mirror, hot and there was blood on my gym towel. For the amount of units in this hotel I cannot believe this gym was meant to service everyone. On the positive, the new store in the building was very nice and had a lot of merchandise . We have stayed at the Hyatt, Marriott, and Westin on this side of the island and this hotel does not measure up . When I called to request a two hour extension for our check out, I was quickly told no. I mentioned the broken toilet to the woman at the management company and she asked if they could come in to fix it I told her I would prefer they come once we check out . I had cash and all my jewelry sitting out and wasn’t comfortable with anyone in the unit when I wasn’t there~ When I returned from the pool, there was a gift bag on the kitchen sink . The intention was nice but the idea of them coming in the unit unannounced with all my valuables out did not sit well with me~ no in room safe we could locate to lock these things up! We won’t travel this way again.
Aloha we are so happy you had a great vacation in Maui! As a reminder to future guests, Honua Kai is not a hotel - it is a condo resort, which means each unit is privately owned. The sofabed was just replaced in this unit and all the finishes are in perfect condition. Christmas week is the busiest week in Hawaii, so you need to get to the gym early, and since another guest is checking in the day of your checkout during Christmas late checkouts are not available unless you request when you make the reservation.
Honua Kai is the #1 rated condo resort in Maui, for those looking for a large residence this is the place! However if you are a hotel traveler who does not need the size, convenience, and features of a luxury condominium we recommend the Hyatt on Kaanapali Beach.
We had an amazing time, would be back any time.
The unit has everething we need and more. We loved this place, and would totaly recomend it.
We will use KBM again for sure
From searching for accommodation, booking, check in, and check out, the entire process with KBM was a pleasure and very smooth.
Ronit and other customer management staff were always accessible and available if needed.
We loved the little touches such as a box of chocolates on arrival.
Highly recommend KBM to anybody and we will definitely use them again on our next Hawaii vacation.
KBM was GREAT!
This unit at the Honua Kai Resort on the 7th floor was wonderful! Check in went very smoothly and the KBM staff were very helpful throughout our stay! We even received free vehicle during our stay! We can't wait to come back! Mahalo!
We looked into booking rooms at some hotel type resorts but really wanted a room with a kitchen because who wants to eat restaurant food for two weeks? This place was the best of both worlds... easily as nice as the other high end lux resorts, plus a kitchen which we used for every breakfast and about half our dinners. Used the communal bbq outside one night as well- everything easy and convenient, and you can't beat dinner with an ocean view on the patio. Visiting in March had an advantage: Whales. Literally every morning with breakfast / coffee we watched whales playing on the "lahaina roads" from our patio. Great walking trail behind the hotel on the beach, easy beach access / pool access, and the staff of the resort was great. John was nice and helpful, all in all, totally great experience.
