Napili Point Resort
Travel Blogs from Lahaina
Day one! Well more like day two since we spent most of the day yesterday flying over. Today was a day of rest and relaxation after all the traveling that occured yesterday. We checked out the Napili Point Resort since this is where everyone was staying. Pretty nice condos and the one we are staying in has a nice view out past the pool and over the …
So after a "short" two hour delay while the technicians for Delta replaced a windshield in the cockpit, we arrived in Maui under dark skies. A short hop to the rental car place while the rest of the group went and gathered luggage so that we would just swing by and pick people and luggage up and off we went to Napili Point Resort which is about an hour drive from the airport. Wheeeeee!!!

... to the arid and barren slopes of lava flow. The volcano, Haleakala, that produced the lava is dormant for now, but is still letting off a bit of steam. Its crater is at an elevation of 10,000 feet. Driving there meant passing through some ominous looking dark clouds, but then emerging above them into brilliant sunlight and blue sky, although the temperature is down below 10 deg C., compared to 30 deg at the ...
... a good sign!! We had spicy ahi poke rice bowl and kalua pork plate with cucumber kimchee and a scoop of sesame ahi poke for $20! We looked at the pile of tuna once we had been served and thought to ourselves if this had been in a hotel, we would have paid $30 per plate for it.
Once we landed in Maui, I got a perfectly timed phone call from a Tulane friend who lives here and gave great info on excursions and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Napili Point Resort Lahaina
Great view and surroundings
We enjoyed the setting of this property. Seeing the turtles in the bay each day and the pretty sunsets set this property off differently from others. We also had a wonderful trade wind blowing thru our condo, cooling it off during quite a warm time. Also it was quiet and very relaxing. We would recommend this for folks without very young children. The size of the 1 bedroom was very nice and comfortable.
Enjoyed our stay!
Beautiful location - Our most relaxing vacation in years
Absolutely loved this place! Right on the ocean-could hear it from our unit. Great snorkeling in front of the condos. Pools are next to the ocean, two minute walk to a really nice sandy beach, watched sunsets from our patio nightly. No crowds. Heaven! Hated to leave but had to go back to work. Will return.
Almost don't want to share this bit of paradise with others!
Our oceanfront condo was awesome and it had everything we wanted or needed, even a washer and dryer right in the unit. Not quite a resort since they don't have a restaurant, room service or a hot tub but the condo more than made up for that. Nicely furnished, comfortable. Napili Point does not charge for parking or add resort fees like many other places. Short, easy walk to white sand beach. They have two freshwater pools (right next to the ocean) with chairs and loungers. Nice grounds too. Saved money compared to hotel rates with meals. Our travel agent recommended this place and we are glad she did-went home and thanked her with a Maui pineapple! Don't know when we will be able to come back, but we will, maybe in a few years. Awesome vacation.
This was our first time here and we were pleasantly surprised. Napili Point is a very nice condo complex and we had a really great vacation.
Right on the Ocean. Super vacation!
Our stay at Napili Point was wonderful and we will be coming back again. In the past we had always stayed at Napili Shores, but we have switched now! After traveling from Plano, Texas, we wanted a unit that was ON the ocean and that's what they have at Napili Point. Snorkeling in the cove was glorious with all the fish and the sea turtles (there were 5 on a regular basis). Our condo was very comfortable for the three of us and the setting was divine. When you are grilling at the BBQs you are right next to the ocean and have front row seats for the sunsets each night. Great vacation spot.
Napili Point well come again
Napili Point resort could not be better! Just steps from great snorkeling, the pool, the beach. Snorkeling is better right outside front door than $80/per person trip to Molokini Crater (though thats fun too). Condo nicely furnished, well appointed and comfortable. Staff very accomodating. Well definitely come again!
Better than awesome place to honeymoon!
We were blown away at how beautiful this property is and how close to the ocean our one bedroom oceanfront unit was. We loved the view from our unit and the furnishings were nice and tropical. After all the hassles of the final days before our wedding, Napili Point was just what we needed to unwind, relax and start our life together - glad we didn't stay in a stuffy hotel. Enjoyed breakfast on our lanai each morning and often lunch too. Ate a few really great dinners out with the money we saved on the other meals (BJ's in Lahaina had great pizza). Found a good deal on the condo and good dining tips at napilipoint.net and saved money compared to the "official" web site.
Burt was great to work with and we are going to have to come back to this piece of paradise.
Another wonderful vacation in this heavenly spot
Just back from our 5th stay at Napili Point in the past 7 years. Loved it as always. The one bedroom Oceanfront units are so close to the ocean it is wonderful. Unit was bright, clean and nicely furnished as usual. Peaceful setting with no crowds or high rise hotels anywhere in the area. No room service, but who cares - you get a complete kitchen and can make anything you want yourself and save money too. If you don't want to cook there is a good restaurant next door for breakfast or lunch-and they do take-out too. Napili Point is less expensive than the big hotels but it is not the cheapest place in West Maui. It is, however, worth every dollar. The units have great views, are all on the ocean and besides, it's our vacation and we're worth it. Cannot wait for our next visit.
Napili Point Resort felt better than home
My wife and I needed the perfect location to unwind and relax. Napili Point Resort provided that and then some. Great location, near to everything but private at the same time. Can't wait to return. Great value for the money.
We loved our two bedroom Oceanfront unit. Nicely furnished and decorated, with a very tropical feel-perfect for our family. The ocean was only 75 feet away - wow!This was much nicer than we expected after reading a review here. Our kitchen was fresh and clean, it had all the plates, pots. pans, glasses, utensils you would need while on vacation. It was almost like being in our own kitchen since I found everything I looked for. You can BBQ and watch the sunset over the ocean.The housekeeper was friendly and efficient, made the beds daily, emptied the trash, left nice fresh towels etc. They provided everything but our groceries. Nice big beach towels are available from the front desk.Beautiful grounds and great setting. Lots of sea turtles in the cove right in front of the condos. Great snorkeling. Sandy beach at Napili Bay was next door - good snorkeling there too, but the cove is better.Lots of free parking and no stupid "Resort Fees." Each unit is privately owned but it is run like a hotel. We are telling our friends and making plans to visit again, hopefully next year.
