Vacationing in a unit at the Ka’anapali Ali’i means that you are staying in one of the most luxurious accommodations on Maui. The grounds are nothing short of lavish either. Pathways lead you through the immaculate garden surrounding the recently renovated pool area and take you all the way down to the popular Ka’anapali beachwalk hugging the award-winning 3-mile long Ka’anapali beach. Taking center stage, the two-tiered fresh water pool area summons you to cool down under the Maui sun. A separate splash pool is perfect for the younger children and the upper pool offers a tranquil spot for those seeking some quite time in a serene setting. There are two Jacuzzi spas where you can relax, and lounge chairs line the pool so grab a seat and do what you came here to do; namely unwind.
If you would rather feel the soft sand between your toes, grab a towel from the pool service desk and take to the beach just a few steps away. Rent a cabana or take advantage of complimentary chairs and pick your spot. Here, watch the waves roll in, catamarans sail by and fun-seekers play in the sun. During the winter months, keep your eyes peeled on the horizon for signs of the Pacific Humpback whale. A spout, a breach or a tail slap is not an uncommon sight in these warm, protected waters where they come to breed and nurture their newborns.
A truly unique feature found at this resort is the expansive lounge- and barbecue set-up. Offering shade from the sunny skies, the oversized pavilion with comfortable, outdoor furniture and two flat screen TV’s allow you to stay current on recent events and watch your favorite game while you are poolside on this remote Pacific island. In addition, there is a designated dining area where you can gather to nibble on your fresh-off-the-barbecue creation. Make sure to flavor your feast with a selection from the herb garden next to the oceanfront gas grills. While grilling, watch as the sky light up with the colorful hues of the setting sun and make a toast to another great day in paradise.
You can’t beat the location of this oceanfront resort. Not only is the property hugging a wide, golden beach, you also have access to a myriad of activities within walking and driving distance. You can jump on a catamaran directly from the beach and you can choose from snorkel trips leading you to protected snorkel sites, dinner cruises serving island-inspired cuisine, cocktail sunset cruises or whale watches when in season. During the summer months, take flight with a parasail company or jump on a jet ski for some splashing turns and twists right off the coast. Surfing and stand-up paddle lessons are a staple when in Hawaii and there is no shortage of board rentals and lessons along the coast. Walk 15 minutes up the beach and you are at the most western point of Maui, commonly know as “Black Rock”. Some of the best snorkeling on the island is found here. At sunset you can witness a nightly cliff dive, a ritual passed down for centuries and holds great cultural significance in Hawaiian history.
