Honua Kai logoDear Dave,


A warm ALOHA from the beautiful island of Maui.


We arrived here on Friday night and we are staying at Honua Kai Resort & Spa. Wow!!! What a magnificent property.


The first thing we noticed when we arrived at Honua Kai was the wonderfully intoxicating aroma of fresh-cut tropical flowers that greeted us in the lobby. And HELLO, what a beautiful lobby it is. 


After our long travel day (we had to connect in PHX) we were both really looking forward to seeing what our Two Bedroom Resort View Suite would be like. We had looked at all of the beautiful pictures of the suites on the Honua Kai website, and maybe I'm suspicious by nature, but I never fully trust the internet and brochure pictures. Maybe I'm jaded??? LOL


Freddie at Honua KaiWell, I can happily tell you that the pictures don't lie. They are not exaggerated or embellished in the slightest, and our suite looks EXACTLY like the gorgeous pictures on the website. LOVE IT!! We have a full gourmet kitchen complete with granite countertop, high-end stainless steel appliances, and quality dishes/cutlery. The living-room, dining-room and bedroom furniture is all modern, comfortable and stylish.


The resort itself is beachfront and we were really curious as to what the beach was like. One of the most common questions we get from Travel Agents when we are on sales calls is, "How's the beach?" Again, the pictures looked great online, but we wanted to see for ourselves. Two thumbs up! Way up!! First of all, the beach is absolutely gorgeous; just like a postcard. It's a sandy beach (didn't notice any big rocks) and the water is warm and wonderful, great for splashing around, swimming or even some snorkelling. Highly recommend!


But to be honest, I'm more of a pool-person (I was stung by a jelly-fish in Florida once and I think it left an emotional scar haha), so I will be spending more time in the pool than I will in the ocean. Honua Kai has THREE pools and they are definitely passing the "Freddie test" with flying colours! The water is a perfect temperature (not too cold and not too warm), and they are free-form, meaning they seem to meander throughout the plush grounds. No boring square pool here! I think one of my favourite features though has to be the in-water chaise lounges. I love them so much! I can see myself spending plenty of quality-time lying back relaxing, sipping my diet-coke, chewing my Nicorette (still not smoking but now I'm addicted to the gum!!!) and dipping my toes in the water.


Another frequent question we get from Travel Agents is, "Are there enough lounge chairs at the pools or do my clients have to get up at the crack-of-dawn to reserve them?" Well, the resort is nearly full this week and we can see tons of available loungers so this does not appear to be a problem whatsoever.


Duke's logoSomething else that we love about Honua Kai is having Duke's Beach House Restaurant on site. Have you heard of Duke's before? It's a really fun Hawaiian chain with locations throughout the islands and even a couple in Southern California. Duke's has a great atmosphere and delicious food. Tell your clients to save room for the HULA PIE. It is sooo good. Mmm. 


We have only been in Maui for a couple of days but we can honestly say that Honua Kai is way beyond what we were expecting (and our expectations were high).
