This North Kaanapali Beach resort is a favorite with residents and locals alike. The property sits on 38 acres bordering Kahekili Beach, immediately north of busier, flashier Kaanapali Beach. The resort’s upscale yet relaxed atmosphere takes a cue from its natural surroundings. Island-inspired artwork in the lobby gives way to colorful koi ponds, artfully landscaped grounds, and meandering swimming pools (including a fun family zone with pirate ship). Luxe accommodations range from spacious 590-square-foot studios to vast 2,800-square-foot three-bedroom units, with top-of-theline appliances, lanai, and ocean views. The resort’s sociable restaurant, Duke’s Beach House, offers an “ono-licious” breakfast and live music. Stock up on organic snacks, gelato, and local coffee at Aina Gourmet Market in the lobby, which also offers delicious takeout fare. Ho[‘]ola Spa boasts the island’s only therapeutic Himalayan salt room and uses organic, made-in-Hawaii products in its treatments. Note: The development of the luxury townhome development Luana Garden Villas on the mountain side of Honua Kai is reflected in lower rates for those units facing the construction versus other “resort” and ocean views.
