This three-story hotel building used to be a tower of the Royal Lahaina Resort. Think of it as the stepsister to the Royal Lahaina. It’s older, and even with room refreshes done in 2016, it’s still not on par with the main hotel. The bathrooms have showers only (no tubs). Since it’s next to the lu‘au grounds, you get to hear the lu‘au every night (especially if you’re in one of the odd-numbered rooms). But you do have access to all the facilities and signing privileges at the Royal Lahaina Resort. Parking is $15 per day, valet parking is $20, local calls and 800 numbers are an extra buck. You can pay a $21-per-day optional fee (the Paradise Value Package) to cover self-parking, local calls and two free mai tais per day, and if you add $5 more, you can get valet parking, too. It’s the only budget place right on the beach at Ka‘anapali. Rooms (355 sq. ft.) are $135–$275. Check-in is at the Royal Lahaina. Special pricing is available.

What Readers Have to Say

“We came to Kauai for our honeymoon and this is the first trip for both of us to any of the Hawaiian islands. We don’t know what we would have done without your book and iPhone app! After a couple days of using the book we started calling it our “bible” because it has SO much helpful information in it. Anytime we thought we might want to try a new activity we consulted the book for tips then used the app to help us find it. The app is extra great since it works even in areas with zero cell service. We were in the middle of Waimea Canyon on a hike and we could still pull up the map to figure out where we were along the trail. Because of all the information we had at our fingertips we were able to fill our days with so many different and interesting things! We are from New England so this is certainly a faraway land for us-but with the book and app we felt more “at home” in knowing where to go. We’re now leaving Kauai feeling like we’ve seen and done the best things the island has to offer! Thank you!!”
