MAUI: A LUSH TROPICAL PARADISE KNOWN FOR ITS outdoor fun and golden beaches. From hiking lava rocks to exploring a grove of rainbow eucalyptus trees, there is something for everyone on the island. When your clients tucker themselves out from a full day of adventure, Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel is the perfect place to rest their heads and dream of palm trees. Calling world-famous Kā‘anapali Beach home, the resort stretches across 11 acres of striking tropical gardens, making this beachfront haven the perfect place for guests to relax and indulge. With a whale-shaped swimming pool, open-air bar, family-friendly restaurants and endless water activities, we know three types of prospects who will leave saying “aloha-ahhh.”
Planning a vacation to satisfy every family member’s needs is arguably the hardest part of organizing a trip. However, Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel has been awarded the title of “Maui’s best familyfriendly hotel,” ensuring the entire ʻohana has a memorable experience. Best of all? Kids stay free. That’s right: Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel wants your clients to make their dream trip achievable, meaning children 17 years and under have unparallel access to the hotel for no extra cost. Kids can delight in the Aloha Passport program – 12 different stations promoting fun and educational activities (though they’ll likely never want to leave the beach after experiencing the water activities on offer). With choices from stand up paddle boarding to snorkelling from a Boki Board to learning about the island’s marine life, the entire family is guaranteed to come home a little waterlogged and sun-kissed.
With endless white beaches, tropical foliage and unforgettable sunsets, it’s easy to see why Maui is one of the world’s top wedding and honeymoon destinations. In fact, its oceanfront lawn is the perfect place for a wedding or vow renewal, though the romance extends far beyond. The oceanfront guest rooms at Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel offer panoramic views of the beach and a private balcony. Advise clients to enjoy a romantic dinner cruise and watch the sunset over the island while indulging in a Hawaiian-influenced meal. If your clients are seeking ultimate relaxation, the Beauty of Aloha Spa & Salon will pamper them with couples massages, facials and nail services, leaving them in a state of bliss.
For some, the love of the island comes directly from the culture and its people. As “Hawaiʻi’s Most Hawaiian Hotel” it’s clear that Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel takes great pride in nurturing and educating guests on the rich culture of the Hawaiian Islands. The hotel has an in-house team of cultural experts who specialize in a range of Hawaiian subjects, so you can sleep easy knowing your culture-seeking clients will come home with a deep sense of place. The hotel offers a wealth of knowledge from ukulele and hula classes, lei making, and ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian language) lessons – making guests feel a little more at home. In the evening, travellers can kick back and relax with hula and Hawaiian music performances. But for the ultimate experience, suggest your clients visit the island during Makahiki Season. Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel observes this Hawaiian custom by committing to one cultural focus during the entire season, such as handcrafting a fully functioning Hawaiian wa’a (canoe).
