Five-star to Under the Stars: Lodging in Maui

With nearly 10 million visitors flocking to the Hawaiian Islands every year, Maui is home to a plethora of lodging options. Whatever type of experience you’re looking for, the Valley Isle has the beachfront resort, condo, bed and breakfast or tree house to meet your needs. Here’s a list of some of our current favorites from around the island.

For the Quiet Type

The Inn at Mama’s Fish House, located on Maui’s screen saver-worthy north shore, offers a quiet reprieve from the bustling, tourist-heavy resort corridor to the south. Guests have the luxury of choosing from one- to two-bedroom cottages and suites with either ocean or garden views. As if the private lanais and shady hammocks weren’t enough, every door is only steps away from the property’s private beach. As an added bonus, the restaurant portion of Mama’s Fish House serves up arguably the best seafood on the island.

For Families

A tropical sanctuary in Paia, Maui, Mangolani Inn will rent the entire upstairs of the newly remodeled property to families of up to 10. The five bedrooms and three bathrooms mean everyone can enjoy their privacy. The majority of the bedrooms boast sliding glass doors that open to a spacious, covered lanai. Enjoy a family dinner on the lawn under large mango and avocado trees. The kids will love the easy access to some of the island’s best beaches from this quaint bed and breakfast.

For Lovers of the Provincial

A rustic, romantic hideaway built in the 1940s as a private residence, Kula Lodge and Restaurant hugs the mountainside and blends with the astonishing ambience of Upcountry Maui. At an elevation of 3,200 feet, you’ll have splendid views of central Maui from the side of Haleakala, the dormant volcano responsible for the majority of Maui’s creation. Bask in the bucolic splendor of the nearby flower farms and the on-site garden terrace that produces fresh herbs for the kitchen.

For Lovers of Golf

Nestled in one of Hawaii’s largest nature preserves, Kapalua Resort features a necklace of stunning white sand beaches, two marine sanctuaries, award-winning accommodations and, most importantly, two legendary world-class golf courses. The Ben Crenshaw-designed Plantation Course is a beastly 7,411-yard par-73 that affords some of the most stunning views of Maui’s western tip. A top-notch spa and tennis courts round out this sprawling resort property’s luxurious amenities.

For Lovers

Condé Nast Traveler readers voted Hotel Wailea the No. 1 hotel on the island of Maui. It’s no wonder why. The epitome of a romantic refuge, is designed for couples seeking relaxation away from the throngs of beachgoers. The hotel maintains an organic garden supplying the award-winning restaurant. Be sure to take advantage of the complimentary shuttle transportation to beaches, shops, golf courses and restaurants in the Wailea area.

For Adventurers

A number of businesses offer tree house rentals in the island’s rainforests. Make no mistake about it; this is glorified camping with a roof. You’ll be spending some quality time with mosquitoes, so don’t forget the bug spray. However, the resulting experience will last as a cherished memory for a lifetime. Jungle hikes begin once you step out of the front door (if there is one). The views of sunsets over the ocean are not spoiled by shave ice shacks or parking garages. The plush amenities at such lodging establishments include fireside chats, wide open spaces and wall-to-wall jungle.
