Let me preface my review by saying I'm normally the guy who wants the suite on a high floor at one of the upscale Hilton or Starwood properties. But I truly enjoyed my stay at the Royal Kahana. Location is excellent, it's on Kahana beach just a couple of miles north of where you'll find most of the larger resorts... More

We checked into the Outrigger Royal Kahana into a 2 bedroom oceanfront condo on May 31, 2013. We were given a second floor condo (210). As soon as we walked in we were wondering if this was actually a resort, since the room looked like something from an old movie or transient hotel. I told my family not to unpack... More

Recently stayed in unit 302 at the Royal Kahana and it was great. I hesitate to advertise this little gem b/c I don't want it to be booked when I return! :-) Anyway, it was a very nice, clean studio with a lovely ocean view. It's on the quiet side of the complex and at the end of a hallway,... More

We stayed June 6, 2013 through June 11 in room 604. A few bumps when we arrived. Originally given room 1019, the sliding door came off track, couldn't close it, and we had a view of the burned out building next door, along with a sliver of beach. Luckily they were able to move us into a better room, which... More

From my research a lot of the units here are not renovated, so I went to VRBO and found our unit which was 1014, a one bedroom. It was very, very nice! Clean and the perfect spot to watch the ocean. Rick was great to work with. Highly recommend this unit. It has a washer/dryer to wash towels. I heard... More

This hotel has a 3 star rating but it was right on the beach with spectacular views. You could hear the ocean as you went to sleep.....furniture and fixtures were dated but the location made up for it.

I stayed here for a week with my boyfriend while vacationing in Maui. I really recommend this condo to couples and families who are looking to save a few bucks by cooking and eating in for a few meals.

Have stayed here three times. Great place, great people, very good rooms. Doing some updating and renovating now to make it even better. Just recently got to Maui and had traded timeshare points at another condo resort, so say the least they should not even get a terrible ratings. We left that place and called and was lucky to get...

We booked this hotel as part of a package, so were not really sure of what we would get. We were very plesantly surprised. We ended up in two rooms, as the toilet broke down in the first one (no-one to blame). Both rooms were very spacious with a full kitchen, king sized beds, washing machine and dryer and a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Make yourself at home in Kahana. This beachfront community is the calm cousin to West Maui’s high-profile destinations of Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua Resort. You won’t find the typical string of Maui hotels, dazzling storefronts, and streams of shoppers and diners – although that’s only a few minutes away if the mood strikes. Welcome the sun on a morning stroll chasing waves along the sand. Breathe in the breeze that sweeps across the ocean view from your high-rise lanai. Marvel at humpback whales slapping and rolling so close to shore! ... more   less
