I'm still researching for our trip in april 2011(so far away...} and am now considering stayiing in the Ka'anapali area. I like the idea of the boardwalk and being able to walk to another resort and have a drink and walk back to where we stay.
I had been looking at condos but not sure we really need one the one thing I don't do on vacation is cook since I cook almost every night at home so we really don't need a kitchen. I have been looking at The Ka'anapali Beach Hotel it looks very laid back and has that Hawaiian vibe we would enjoy plus our budget will not extend to The Hyatt and Sheraton.
Any thoughts on the KBH or any other reccomendations in Ka'anapali? Not against a condo if there are any midrange ones in the area. Would like to keep it to 150.00 a night at most the garden rooms at KBH for april 2010 are 149.00 a night so I figure they might go up a little next year but not much.
I also thought we might attend The Old Lahaina Luau we have been to Germaines on oahu it was ok but not great. I have heard that Old Lahaina Luau is very good. My question is would we be able to get a cab there and back from Ka'anapali? Since we are pretty vigilant about not drinking and driving and it would be nice if we could both indulge in a few tropical libations.
Mahalo for all your help.
