Royal Lahaina Resort & Bungalows is one of Hawai’i’s original oceanfront escapes, charming guests for generations. Located on the world-renowned Ka’anapali Beach, the resort sits on 27 acres of sun-kissed, tropical gardens and offers an island-inspired getaway. In addition to its beauty and prime location, the resort includes plenty of other reasons for travelers to visit.
Oceanfront Accommodations & Private Bungalows
The resort and Lahaina Kai Tower offer well-appointed rooms and suites overlooking the ocean — guests can also choose to stay in private beachfront bungalows. The bungalows are currently in the process of a complete renovation. Set to be unveiled in 2023, the new bungalows feature island-inspired, retro chic furniture and decor, renovated showers and vanity areas, new lanai decks, and patio furniture.
In a new partnership with Kiawe Outdoor, the resort offers a unique communal, alfresco dining experience set under the legendary 100-year-old rubber tree with a 75-foot canopy. The twice-weekly experience supports local farmers and purveyors and features a fresh, locally sourced menu cooked over an open fire. The immersive culinary experience includes celebratory Champagne, appetizers and a five-course meal with wine and cocktail pairings.
The Royal Ocean Terrace Restaurant & Lounge features locally inspired dishes and handcrafted cocktails steps from the sand. Guests enjoy delectable dishes celebrating the island, such as poke bowls, coconut shrimp, hand line ahi carpaccio, seafood cioppino and more.
Once a traditional vacation spot for Hawai’ian royalty, the property is now owned and curated by locals who share the values of the island. Guests can take ukulele and hula lessons, listen to live Hawai’ian music and take part in a polyfit class. Don’t miss out on one of Maui’s longest-running and most popular luau, “The Myths of Maui.” Royal Lahaina is a legacy destination with endless ways to discover and take part in the culture.
Enjoy an effortless beach experience while soaking up the sun. Guests can take advantage of lounge chairs, umbrellas and a stocked cooler. Reserve a private shaded cabana overlooking Ka’anapali’s famed golden shores or spend the day in the water kayaking, boogie boarding, paddle boarding and snorkeling.

Ancient Greeks believed Helios, the Sun God, caused sunsets by driving his fiery chariot into the sea. Standing at water’s edge in Mykonos, watching the sky slowly turn from purple to inky black, you almost believe it.
