Sweet queen bed room, very clean and inviting, nice shower and bathroom although lacking in shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, lotion and hair dryer, please take note if you need these things. There is a very nice common area with a bar, BBQ, table, hammock and laundry room. Please note, privacy is almost impossible! Jalousie windows might be missing glass panes,...

Stayed here on our honeymoon, my second time and my wife's third visit. We love Paia and love staying at Nalu Kai. It's reasonably priced, you're right in the middle of town, and the grounds are super relaxing. Second floor deck with ocean views and breeze, grassy lounge chair area where I read some, hammock, pretty tropical landscaping, and a...

My husband and I loved our sweet little efficiency tucked peacefully behind the shops of Hippytown, Paia! Windows on all four sides made the space sunny and cheerful. The balcony was nice for coffee and our homemade breakfast after our morning runs. Kitchen had basics, which was all we needed. We really appreciated the washing machine on site! Ask for...

If you are a self sufficient traveler, who craves a low key vibe but wants a clean room with no TV ( thankfully) in a great convenient spot this is it. Really one of my favorite spots anywhere! The courtyard is super tranquil, the rooms are simple, well thought out and beds are crazy comfy! They offer parking which is...

Call me crazy, but being in a room that small with only a curtain between the bed and the bathroom is less than ideal. I could flush while still under the sheets... Otherwise our stay was short and uneventful...arrived late, left for Hana in the morning. Only interaction with staff was asking night manager if any restaurants were still serving...

One of the highlights of our holiday in Maui was staying at Nalu Kai Lodge. It was tucked away down a lane, and such a great discovery. From the moment we entered the timber gate we felt that great, chilled holiday feeling. Every moment there after was just as good as the next. Room was spotless, with perfect, simple authentic...

I brought my husband back to island (he had never been). So, in effort to give him the complete maui experience, we stayed in several spots around island ranging from Air B&B, resorts, friends' places, camping and here. Nalu Kai was the perfect place. It was very convenient to walking around paia town, they offered free self laundry service, and...
