The Perks of Staying at a Maui Beachfront Condo in Lahaina

Imagine waking up in the morning, opening your windows to feel the fresh sea breeze on your face and the rush of the surf in your ear. You’ll have breakfast on your private lanai, the sun warming your skin as you savor your coffee and take in the view of the Lahaina beach. This is a typical morning for those who choose Kaanapali Alii as their Maui resort. For those who stay in one of our Maui beachfront condos, the perks and benefits are countless. Today, we’ll try to highlight a few of the major benefits you’ll enjoy when you stay at our world-famous beach resort.

 Icon-LeafYou’re On the Beach

The most obvious perk of staying in a Maui beachfront condo is that you aren’t close to the beach, you on it. Gone are the days of packing up your umbrella, beach tote and towel, and driving to the beach. Instead, all you have to do is step out the door: World-renowned Kaanapali Beach is directly in front of the resort – its golden sands beckoning and easy to access. When you stay on a condo on the beach, you’ll be able to spend more time actually relaxing by the shore, instead of gathering up everything you need for the entire day and spending time driving to the beach. And, if you decide you need an afternoon cocktail, massage, or simply want to take a nap in your room – you’re just steps away.

Icon-LeafSpacious Accommodations

Vacations are meant to be relaxing. Which is why we don’t understand it when people stay in rooms the size of postage stamps while they travel. Having a spacious room in which to relax is an important part of the unwinding process. When you stay in a Maui beachfront condo at Kaanapali Alii, you’ll experience four times more space than the standard hotel room. Our condos range from 1,500 to 1,900 square feet. Our condos are designed to be a home away from home – a tranquil retreat from your busy life. And, our condos have their own private lanais, which allow you to be in your room but still enjoying the beauty of Maui.

Icon-LeafCountless Amenities

When you book your stay with Classic Resorts, you’ll have access to countless amenities, and take advantage of our excellent customer service. For example, you won’t pay any resort fees, our accommodations meet our strict quality standards, and our daily maid service is absolutely free. When you stay at a Kaanapali Alii Maui beachfront condo, you are minutes away from the legendary Kaanapali Golf Courses, which offers a stunning panoramic view of the area. An added benefit is that you have complimentary, unlimited access to our new yoga studio, fitness center, and private tennis courts.

Stay at a Maui Beachfront Condo for the Most Relaxing Vacation
