Kaanapali hotels are some of the nicest on the island. The Kaanapali area was developed specifically as a first class resort community. It was actually the first planned resort development region on the island of Maui, followed by Kapalua and then Wailea. The brand name hotels you will find in Kaanapali are all very familiar. The Marriot, Hyatt, Sheraton and Westin hotel chains all have flagship properties here. In addition to these big players, there are also other hotels and condominiums from lesser known brands that can also be found here.
In addition to the first class amenities, there are also many convenience factors that make Kaanapali a great place to stay. The proximity to Lahaina town, where you can find first-class shopping, beaches and entertainment. To make it as easy as possible for guests, there is actually a resort shuttle that runs between most of the major Kaanapali resorts and Lahaina which makes it very convenient to travel between the two towns without having to bother with parking.
