About the Outrigger Honua Kai Resort & Spa
Before diving into the list of top Honua Kai Resort and Spa vacation rentals, let’s quickly explore the resort, its amenities, and the beach in front.
Feel free to skip directly to my selection of Honua Kai rentals if you know the resort already, either from experience or research.
The Honua Kai Resort & Spa is part of the Outrigger Resorts chain and was built in 2009 and 2010. With a AAA Four Diamond rating and glowing reviews across booking platforms, it’s one of the top resorts in Maui.
You can find the Honua Kai Resort between Kaanapali and Kapalua in West Maui, just under an hour’s drive from Kahului Airport. The Honua Kai address is 130 Kai Malina Parkway in Lahaina. Technically, all of West Maui is in a single city (Lahaina) but rest assured that this particular property is located miles away from the devastation in and near Lahaina town.
The Honua Kai Resort features 628 rooms and 72 villas.
Honua Kai Resort pools
The Honua Kai Resort Maui is spread across 38 tropical acres, and its exquisite amenities make it such a sought-after place to stay in Maui.
You’ll be delighted to learn that there are several pool areas. Here’s an overview:
It can be hard to find available pool chairs after breakfast. So, either start your pool day early or book your cabana or Casabella ahead of time.
Other Honua Kai Resort amenities
There are two restaurants, one of which has quite a reputation. The Duke’s Beach House restaurant, named after the legendary Hawaiian surfer Duke Kahanamoku, is an island favorite. This all-day restaurant serves fresh seafood dishes and locally sourced produce. The Aina Gourmet Market is another dining option. This deli is perfect for on-the-go meals and fresh pastries. And then there are, of course, the onsite grill areas.
Other amenities are the Ho’ola spa, which offers a selection of island-inspired treatments, the fitness center, and a Whaler’s General Store with souvenirs, snacks, and beach gear.
Each resort tower has a concierge who’ll be more than happy to introduce you to the array of things to do near the Honua Kai Resort: snorkel tours, surf lessons, sunset or whale-watching cruises, luaus, zipline tours, and more.
Honua Kai Resort beach
While the Honua Kai is a beachfront condo resort, it’s important to note that the beach in front of the resort fluctuates along with the tides and the seasons. Luckily, renowned Kaanapali North Beach offers miles of sandy fun. So, if you happen to be there when the beach is narrow, head a bit further south towards Kahekili Beach Park.
The ocean waters in front of the resort are great for snorkeling thanks to the off-beach reef. The access tends to be a bit rocky and water shoes are recommended. An easier, sandy access can be found just south of the resort.
Note that there’s no lifeguard station on Kaanapali Beach. So, if you’re traveling with kids, especially little ones who aren’t familiar with the ocean and its dangers, be sure to watch them at all times.
Honua Kai Resort map and layout
There are three sections to the Honua Kai Resort:
All units are individually owned. As a result, the decor can vary. My selection only includes contemporary units that have been recently renovated or upgraded.
Every Honua Kai unit comes with air conditioning, a private lanai as well as an in-unit washer and dryer. Do note that the dryers are ventless and, as a result, it takes quite a bit longer for your laundry to dry.
If you read my informative article on Maui accommodations, then you know that I may use Airbnb as a catch-all for vacation rentals. However, I do prefer VRBO as a booking platform over Airbnb. That’s why this article on Honua Kai vacation rentals links to far more VRBO listings than Airbnb listings.

For every Honua Kai rental in this list, I have added all the essential details you need. This includes the number of rooms, the number of persons it sleeps, and the license number.

Simply read through the details, check the reviews, and set your preferred dates to get an exact breakdown of the costs. If you still like what you see, you can go ahead and make your online booking.
It’s worth noting that Outrigger Honua Kai Resort & Spa vacation rentals can also be booked on Expedia and that this platform also allows selecting specific units.
Now, without further ado, here’s my personal selection of the best Honua Kai Resort & Spa rentals organized by unit type, from studios to three-bedroom units.
Note that, in addition to these individual units at the Honua Kai in Maui, you can also find two-unit or three-unit combinations on VRBO to accommodate large groups or families.
