Have been researching our upcoming Maui trip for a while now and have narrowed down accomodation choices to either Honua Kai ( one bedroom) or Fairmont Kea Lani.
We will be in Maui in late June for 5 nights and will arrive after loooong flights from Australia.
I am a mother bringing two daughters one aged 23 and the other 17.
We will not be renting a car as I do not wish to deal with driving on the wrong side of the road (for us)whilst jet lagged, so restaurants and food options within walking/shuttle distance are very important.
I am aware that these two hotel options are in different parts of Maui, but I understand that each area has its own unique charms.
We are beach and pool people and are looking forward to glorious weather and some pampering.
We will be happy to relax, but will also do a hike through Hike Maui and perhaps a snorkel trip.
I am aware that Honua Kai offers a kitchen and washer/dryer but for 5 nights I am hoping not to do too much cooking/laundry!
From Maui, we head to Honolulu for another 5 nights.
Would you pick Honua Kai or Fairmont Kea Lani and why?
