The chief advantage of Kihei’s sole hotel is location, location, location. It’s less than a block from sandy, sun-kissed Kamaole Beach Park I and within walking distance of South Kihei Road’s bars, restaurants, and shopping. Another plus: nightly entertainment at the popular pool bar. Guest rooms are smallish, with sitting areas, sofabeds, huge flatscreen TVs, central air, and private garden lanais—no ocean views, though. Throughout the solar-powered hotel, you’ll find wonderful paintings by local artist Avi Kiriaty. Book the less-expensive “deluxe room” over the somewhat cramped “onebedroom suite,” unless you absolutely need the extra privacy. The ami ami restaurant serves reasonably priced local and organic dishes.
