The Napili Kai Beach Resort

In Hawaiian, “Napili Kai” means “gathering by the sea,” and that’s exactly what generations of families have been doing since Napili Kai Beach Resort opened its doors in 1962. Perched right on the beach, just steps from picturesque Napili Bay in West Maui, this 163-room low-rise resort is known for cultivating an atmosphere of aloha. Guests, many of whom have been visiting for decades, are considered part of the ʻohana (family) — at check-in, they’re greeted with a warm “Welcome home!” Interaction with other guests isn’t just encouraged, it’s the culture: Weekly activities such as lei-making lessons, golf-putting parties, and mai tai social hours — along with amenities like four separate swimming pools and a huge hot tub — ensure plenty of opportunities to get to know everyone. It’s all part of the founders’ dream to create a place where people can come together, form lasting friendships, and enjoy a traditional Hawaiian experience.
