Aston Kaanapali Shores

The Aston Kaanapali Shores hotel is located on the western edge of the island of Maui, sandwiched between the bustling seaside hub of Lahaina and the renowned golfing spot of Kapalua. This is definitely a beach resort—the only thing that marks the boundary of one side of the Aston Kaanapali is the onset of the Kaanapali beach itself. As a result, the shore becomes a defining feature time spent in the Kaanapali Shores Aston Resort, with guests spending wonderful and lazy days on the beach before falling asleep to the sound of the ocean by night.

A three-diamond hotel, the Aston Kaanapali excels in more than just its prime location. For a start, the rooms at Aston Kaanapali Shores are stylish and comfortable without being extravagant. They come replete with free wireless internet access, cable TV, and air-conditioning. These rooms are available with either one or two beds. Families may wish to take advantage of the extra bit of living space afforded by the studio units available at the Aston Kaanapali. Similarly, those who like to cook their own food while on vacation would be well-advised to book a studio unit as each includes its own well-equipped kitchen area, as well as the many standard features.

Day-to-day vacation life at the Kaanapali Shores Aston Resort understandably revolves around the beach. And what a beach it is! Warm, clear water laps at a three-mile stretch of stunningly pristine sand, creating something close to the quintessential tropical paradise. Things to do on Kaanapali Beach include sunbathing, body boarding, sailing, and kayaking. Animal-lovers can also enjoy the whale watching excursions that take place out to sea.

The Aston Kaanapali Shores Resort includes a manned activities desk where you can arrange to do any one of the many activities on offer. Aside from those listed above, the hotel also offers tennis and golfing opportunities by way of the three tennis courts on the premises and a nearby championship-level golf course. If that sounds like too much work, there’s always a poolside bar—the Aston Kaanapali has two freshwater pools—or the Beach Club Restaurant in which to kickback and enjoy the lazier side of life.

The Hawaiian islands are renowned as a honeymoon destination, and Maui is no exception. The Kaanapali Shores Aston Resort offers happy couples the opportunity to combine a Hawaii honeymoon with the wedding and reception itself. Weddings are planned by the couple in conjunction with the resort’s own on-site wedding planner.

As ever when booking a stay at a Maui hotel, there are a few things to consider in order to ensure you secure the best deal. For example, check to see whether an airport shuttle service is included in the cost of lodging. It’s also worth looking into when to go to Maui, as packages that sell all inclusive vacations often make the most of the quieter season to provide the best value. Such all inclusive packages vary in content, with some offering car rentals and tickets to local attractions on top of room and board.
