The 3-star Ka’anapali Beach Hotel has won the award of being the Most Hawaiian Hotel in all the islands. They also are a Gold List Award winner in the Best Places to Stay in the Condé Nast Traveler Magazine’s Readers Choice poll and voted the #1 Best Value in Hawaii by Travel & Leisure Magazine. Prestigious awards for a very special independent hotel.
But if you are looking for glitz and glitter, bathrobes and spas, this might not be the hotel for you. But if you are looking for excellent value, comfortable rooms, warm hospitality and a sense of the Hawaiian spirit of aloha, then the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel is the place to stay.
The hotel is located on the widest part of world-famous Ka’anapali Beach, a magnificent stretch of soft, white sand that seems to go on forever. Only 500 yards from the hotel is Pu’u Keka’a, or Black Rock, considered one of the very best places for snorkeling on the island and also to see Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. The Ka’anapali Beach Hotel’s grounds are tropical, lush and just delightful to stroll through by yourself or you can take a free tour. There is a whale-shaped pool, not very large, but steps away is the really big pool known as the Pacific and generally that is why so many millions of people come to Hawaii, so the size of a pool seems rather irrelevant. It’s still a great spot to cool off from an active day exploring the island.
The hotel has several dining spots including the Tiki Terrace Restaurant, serving full-service breakfast daily, Sunday Brunch, and nightly dinner (closed on Monday). There is also the poolside Tiki Grill, serving cooked to order grilled items and the Tiki Bar specializing in tropical cocktails. For esspresso drinks and baked goods stop by our new Grab-N-Go station. There is a Sunset torch lighting ceremony and a free hula show perform outdoors in the Tiki Terrace Courtyard Tuesday through Sunday with dancing under the stars.
The Ka’anapali Beach Hotel has a Children’s Program for children 12 years and younger called “Aloha Passport for Kids” that includes some great things to do and goodies. At check-in, every family receives information that explains the program. If parents need a break from all the fun, the hotel’s Guest Services can arrange for babysitting or participation in one of the resort’s recreation programs.
All and all it would be difficult to find a hotel that offers everything the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel does at such reasonable prices. It’s a lovely property, filled with charm and that elusive aloha spirit that is the heart and soul of Hawaii. The hotel is 80% non-smoking and 20% smoking in accordance with Hawaii state law.
