10 Best Places to Stay in Ka’anapali, Maui (Hotels + Condos)

So you’re planning a Hawaiian vacation. You’ve settled on the island of Maui (aka the Valley Isle). Now you’re wondering where to stay on Maui.

One of our favorite areas is Kaanapali, or Ka’anapali in Hawaiian. Located in West Maui, just a stone’s throw from the old whaling village of Lahaina, Kaanapali is a popular resort area.

Indeed, it’s the oldest planned resort area in the Hawaiian island chain. The developers did it so well that Kaanapali has become a model for other resort areas around the world.
