... in the United States. The mill also produced more than 53,000 tons of molasses and generated approximately six to seven percent of Maui's electrical power. We saw burnt cane and some planting....dual row. The countryside looked similar to Childers. We then drove through the old sugar town of Paia and to the beach where they were wind surfing and kite surfing some very big waves - the wind surfing capital of the world.

The road to Hana is a twisting and turning mountain road that passes through beautiful forest areas, over little streams, and along the coast line. Hana itself is a small community that lives basically on its beach facilities and on the holidaymakers who come there for them and for its remoteness. Further round the coast from Hana the landscape changes from the lush ...
We had a flight from Lihue, Kauai to Kahului, Maui today. One thing I have to mention about the Westin was the hospitality suite they offer after you checkout. So we were able to spend the morning on the beach and shower before heading to the airport. Really nice feature!
Highlights of the travel day were lunch and dinner! Lunch was a stop at Pono Market in Kapaa right on the road to the airport. The place was full of ...
... down the road. It was absolutely beautiful!! There was a man-made tide pool which, at high tide, was full with water about a foot deep. It was great for the 5-year old I'm here to babysit for, especially because there is a real beach right next to it, so when he got bored we could go play in the waves. Also, I was pleased to realize that there really weren't any tourists at this beach! It was almost all locals (which is how you know it's a good beach). I love getting the insider ...
... It looked awesome seeing the bright kites against the sky with the guys riding the waves down below. A couple times they even jumped and turned in the air, which was even neater! A bit further down the road we came to an open air market. This market sold everything! Fruit, smoothies, shaved ice, Hawaiian dresses and shirts, t-shirts, jewelry, flowers, Hawaiian decorations, and even more. We enjoyed walking around here for quite a while. My mom bought a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Napili Kai Beach Resort Lahaina
We just celebrated our 20th Anniversary at this wonderful spot. It is a classic old Hawaiian resort, with ample amenities and services. The prices are great, especially when compared to so called 4 star resorts like the 4 seasons and Ritz Carlton, which , in Hawaii, ream you for everything. Food here is adequate and reasonably priced. The beach and views are su[erb ( I prefer this beach to the adjoining Kapalua beachs, easier to get to). Also, Kapalua is right next door with a great, great Japanese restaurant (Sansei), tennis and golf.
Wonderful, Relaxing Vacation
We spent one week at the Napili Kai Beach Resort in March and had an incredible time. After spending two weeks on the island in two different locations I can see what makes this property special. The Napili Kai is located on a wonderful swimming beach, and there is awesome snorkeling right around the corner at Kapalua. This property provides so many amenities such as snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels, daily fresh pineapple and lemonade, plus much more. Each evening we enjoyed a cool torch-lighting ceremony at sunset. Napili is so relaxing; it is definitely "the unhurried way of life." We will return to Maui someday, and will most definitely stay at the Napili Kai.
It doesn't get any better than this...
I just want to mention that our experience at Napili Kai resort was outstanding, we believe it holds the best beach in the whole island (Napili Bay). the room was super clean and the view was breathtaking. The staff at Napili Kai Resort were first class and gave us an upgrade to ocean view at no extra charge. All the facilities were super well kept and the staff went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. On our last day we ask for a late check out thinking to leave the hotel around 8pm and they did not charge us extra. I just want to say that even if the more expensive places over at Kaanapali beach were at the same rate as Napili Kai I would not blink or hesitate in choosing this resort again. It is the best value in Hawaii by far. We'll be back.....
We stayed at Napili Kai last Xmas. It was highly recommended by many travel books, etc. It is a true "Old Hawaii" type resort. There are good and bad points to this complex. First, the views of Napili Bay are fantastic. An added bonus is that Kapalua Bay is right next door so you have two beautiful beach options. Second, the beach itself is great for kids. There is a quiet and calm section that the resort fronts. Farther down the beach there are decent waves for boogie boarders. Third, the snorkeling is great and we saw many varieties of fish and many turtles.
I'd love to go back!
We stayed at the Napili Kai the second week of July for our 25th anniversary (brought our kids, too). Our room in the Puna II bldg. was fabulous, the kids had their own bedroom and bathroom, the view was wonderful, and it was great having a kitchen. The grounds are gorgeous and very well maintained. The beach was beautiful with great snorkeling (gear was free), my husband was only disappointed that they did not have kayaks (and the ones next door at the Kapalua Bay Resort were terrible and very expensive). The restaurant was OK, but rather overpriced for the quality-the view was fantastic, though. My kids loved the free children's program they have, and the complimentary mai-tai party was great. We'd come back if we could!
The greatest place to stay
Napili Kai was the greatest, the staff was very helpful. The view from the room was very nice! The snorkeling right on their beach is fantastic. Snorkeling gear is provided free, Mai Tai parties - free, 18 hole putting course - free, warmed beach towels - free. They do not nickel and dime you when you stay there. The food in the restaurant was absolutely fantastic! They provide kitchenettes so you can fix meals in your room or out on the barbeque. We had the time of our lives!
Great and friendly resort
The Napili Kai offered us a very relaxing vacation on a great beach for relaxing and snorkeling. We will be staying again on our next trip to Maui.
I stayed there with my husband for a week in June, 2003. It is a relatively small, low key resort. It has a traditional Hawaiian looking unlike other hotels in West Maui area. Their private beach was one of the best places for snorkeling. It was actually better than Molokini Island. Our ocean view unit w/kitchen was very spacious, clean, and comfortable (I heard that some units don't have A/C, so you need to request it if you definitely need it). Hotel staffs were very nice. They appeared to enjoy their work at the resort. The restaurant was okay. Rental car is recommended if you'd like to join activities outside of the resort such as shopping, hiking, half day trips to nearby islands, etc. If you are seeking for relaxing vacation, I'm sure that Napili Kai is one of the best choices.
Great Place to stay
Great resort. Friendly people. Beautiful beach and bay. Goooood food!!! Spacious rooms. A view that's hard to beat. True Hawaiian experience. Manicured grounds.
Several people warned us before taking of for the Napili Kai Beach Club. Napili is a gawd-awful condo infested eyesore, they said. For what we were paying, we should be down in Wailea enjoying the fantastic resorts. Travel guides and friends agreed: do not pay resort bucks to stay in Napili!
