Hawaii’s Hawaiian Hotel: Maui’s Best Value

Kaanapali Beach Hotel, Hawaii’s “Most Hawaiian Hotel” is the ideal setting for a wedding or special event. Located on 11 lush tropical acres along Maui’s fabled Kaanapali Beach, a variety of indoor and outdoor oceanfront venues for weddings and special events are available to accommodate parties of up to 350 people.  Hotel event planners can help custom design a package to create a one-of-a-kind event, or choose from the equally special Maui Aloha, Maui Memories, or Maui Romance wedding packages with rates starting from $1,290.  And, with a staff that considers every guest to be a part of its extended family, Kaanapali Beach Hotel is the perfect setting to turn Hawaiian dreams into lifelong memories.

Recently awarded Best Resort for a Hawaiian Cultural Vacation, our signature interactive Hawaiian cultural program, Ke Kula o ka Pookela (School of Excellence) is the foundation of award-winning service.  Full-time Hawaiian cultural advisors share insight about the destination by hosting complimentary activities daily. Hula lessons, lauhala weaving, Hawaiian storytelling, ukulele playing, cultural garden walks, Hawaiian language lessons, pineapple cutting demonstrations, sand image etching, and a nightly complimentary hula show are ways for guests to experience the local culture.

Cultural immersion begins the moment guests arrive at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel, as hotel staff serenades visitors upon arrival.  Through activities, art and artifacts — such as canoes, hales, pahu drums and taro patches — the hotel surroundings provide a relaxed and true Hawaiian atmosphere. Upon departure, guests participate in a farewell Kukui Lei Ceremony.

Encourage your clients to travel as a group because by booking 10 rooms or more this summer, they can enjoy bonus discounts off the already excellent accommodations rates from $159.

For a more adult-friendly, romantic get-away, visit Kaanapali Beach Hotel’s sister property, Maui’s premier bed and breakfast, The Plantation Inn, nestled in a lush tropical oasis in the heart of Maui’s historic Lahaina town, steps from the waterfront and all the excitement it holds, yet far enough to offer precious tranquility. Nineteen rooms and suites, each uniquely furnished and housed in graceful turn-of-the-century structures, create an intimate hideaway.

The Plantation Inn is home to Gerard’s Restaurant, a Zagat Top Food Rated restaurant.  Serving the finest in Contemporary Island French Cuisine for dinner, Gerard’s is appreciated for its romantic setting, quiet elegance and impeccable service.
