Honua Kai Resort & Spa on Maui’s Kaanapali Beach is known for its incredibly spacious studio,
one, two and three-bedroom suites with all the comforts of home. A full gourmet kitchen. In-room
washer/dryer. Large lanai (balcony). And a private bath in each room. But unlike your home, there’s
a 3-acre aquatic playground with towel service. A luxurious spa. Housekeeping every other day. And
assistance from the front desk or concierge is just a phone call away. If only home was this amazing.
There’s no place like home. Away from home.
