Maui is the most magical place on earth, and Kaanapali Beach is known as the best beach on Maui. Now add the luxury condominium accommodations of Kaanapali Alii and you have a Maui resort vacation that fulfills all of your Hawaii dreams and expectations. Please take a few moments and tell us, and the world your own story in paradise.
Oceanfront yoga classes are open exclusively for guests of the luxurious oceanfront Maui condo, the Kaanapali Alii. Easy stretching and relaxing postures transform a vacation into an experience of renewal and inspiration! The weather is warm, the early morning sun is gentle and the oceanfront location overlooking the golden sands of Kaanapali Beach is “no ka oi” (the best!). And when class is over you can continue to relax in your own private fully furnished apartment. You can stock your full size frig with healthy beverages and snacks and even grill your own easy lunch at the oceanfront BBQs. It’s all about comfort and renewal.
Winter on Maui is an especially exciting time to visit because it’s whale watch season. From November even into April you can be sure to see whales either on one of the many whale watch boat tours or from the shore in special locations. One great location is from your private lanai when you rent the best Maui condo rental, Kaanapali Alii. You really can see the whales while you’re sitting there with our favorite beverage. Hours will go by like minutes when you’re watching whales slapping their tails and breaching (lifting their huge bodies completely out of the water then crashing back down!). It’s an experience of a lifetime.
rental! I stayed at the Maui condo called the Ka`anapali Ali`i during the 2009 Wendy’s Skins and it was perfect for me. This Maui beachfront condo has lots of space, it’s luxurious but best of all it’s right near the Ka`anapali Golf Course!

Golfing on Maui is even better when you can come off the course and walk into the comfort of your own Maui vacation condo rental. The Alii is a great value when compared to multiple hotel rooms. It’s oceanfront and very close to the Kaanapali Golf Course. Here’s a couple of shots from this year’s Wendy’s Skins game.
Female, Albuquerque, NM recommends Maui oceanfront condos
“This has to be one of my favorite condo’s I’ve stayed in so far. The rooms are spacious, of course because they’re condo’s, but they’re also extremely well taken care of. Now, I can’t speak for all rooms since they’re individually owned but the decour in my room was fantastic. Vibrant, yet classy. I love the fact that they have the option for you to choose if you want an upgraded unit or not.”
