Maui’s newest luxury resort and TripAdvisor's top rated resort on Maui’s west side, Honua Kai Resort & Spa continues their popular Room & Car Package inviting guests to discover Maui.
With more families opting for adventure travel when planning Maui vacations, it is no wonder that Honua Kai Resort & Spa has become a destination for adventurers – young and old alike – wanting engaging outdoor activities amid luxury alternative accommodations that meet families’ needs.
Maui’s magic entices the adventurous spirit in all of us, and families have been drawn to the calm beaches and resort family day camps for decades. But families are changing. They look different and act differently. They are stepping off the paved beach path and heading out to seek adventure in the untamed mountains, waterfalls and available ocean sports.
There are many land and sea soft adventure activities within a short five-minute drive of Honua Kai Resort. Aina (land) activities include hikes, golf, zip lining, ATV outings and horseback riding. Kai (ocean) options are snorkeling in Honolua Bay Marine Reserve, parasailing, SUP (stand up paddling) and surfboard lessons, canoe paddling and whale watching.
Whether it’s for a family of two or an extended family group, the perfect solution for family accommodations is at Honua Kai Resort. The rooms are generous suites with spacious separate living and sleeping areas, fully equipped high-end kitchens, full-size washers & dryers. Expansive furnished lanai allows the outdoors in with a special folding glass wall.
Honua Kai offers the ideal blend of adventure nearby and the luxury of a beautifully appointed resort. Refresh and relax at the Aquatic Playground, featuring a waterslide, waterfall and a sandy beach for the kids plus a meandering lazy river with adjoining serenity and lap pools for the ultimate rejuvenation. And of course, world-famous Kaanapali Beach is steps away inviting a stroll on the pure white sand, a dip in the sea or a front row seat to watch in awe as humpback whales play right off shore.
Dining at Honua Kai is it’s own adventure. Duke’s Beach House provides exceptional oceanfront dining while paying homage to the restaurant’s namesake, legendary surfer and waterman Duke Kahanamoku. Serving fresh locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Hawaiian-influenced cuisine focuses on fresh sustainable seafood and premium steaks.
Aina Gourmet Market is a charming café with a full coffee bar, pastries, prepared salads, Panini sandwiches, and healthy grab-and-go meals. The market is based on the concept of using products within a 100-mile radius — stocking produce from Maui first, preferably from smaller farms and island based businesses. Along with prepared meals, they offer a wide selection of grocery items, snacks, wines and spirits as well as gift items.
The BBQ grilling areas are popular with families to create masterpieces for en suite dining experiences — perfect for family gatherings or entertaining.
Onsite activities abound. The Family Fun Club provides festive, Hawaiian themed activities that children and their fun-loving families enjoy — hula dancing, flower lei making, nature scavenger hunts and Hawaiian storytelling are just a few. Adults can take in fitness classes offered on the resort grounds or drop into the Fitness Center for a workout.
Whether they are seeking adventure, relaxation or reconnection, families are traveling together to create memories. Honua Kai Resort sets the stage for these wonderful experiences to unfold.
