Two towers make up this hotel—the Malia Tower and the original nine-story Luana Wing that has the 1/1 units (with kitchenettes). The Hawaiian-accented rooms are clean but have ultra tiny lanais—big enough for one, and that’s about it in the main tower. Luana lanais are larger. Unlike most Ohana resorts, the showers/tubs are normal-sized (Luana tubs are smaller). There’s a tiny pool and spa sandwiched between buildings. You could never sit and relax there. The staff is very warm and welcoming.

Avoid 1/1 units that end in -01—they’re right over a busy corner. Lots of connecting rooms available. Though there are no ocean view categories, you may be able to catch a glimpse from upper floor, odd-numbered rooms in the tower. Overall, it’s an adequate choice. Rooms (286–331 sq. ft.) are $279–$329, 1/1s (510 sq. ft.) are $329–$349. Discounts available.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just wanted to say thanks for making a GREAT series of books. You have given us so many ideas as to where to stay and what to do. Plus your books make for some great reading. I rather enjoy the style that you wrote in. Your books are not stuffy like a lot of other books we’ve read on Hawaii. I can not tell you how many times I busted out laughing about how bad a place is to eat or stay. I’m very much looking forward to staying in Hawaii and thanks again for the most helpful series of books.”
