First a quick word about Paia which is a quiet little surf town about 5 miles from the aiport, which makes it convenient for pretty much anywhere else on Maui. Unlike Lahaina and Kihei, there are no high-rise hotel blocks and no tacky souvenir shops, so if that is your thing stay elsewhere. If, like us, you hate over-commercialisation and over-development, Paia could be a good bet for you. It's very small (you can walk everywhere), there are some good local restaurants and upscale art and clothing stores and everyone is very friendly.
Paia Inn Hotel is a small boutique hotel with beautifully decorated rooms, private access to the beach and very happy, helpful staff. We were comped one night because we had no hot water for about 24 hours, and the owner himself came to apologise.
The room (14) was in a small separate building shared with one other room. The bathroom was partially outside with a roof and thick foliage for privacy, and the bedroom was small but very nicely furnished and decorated. The hotel is right on the Hana Highway in the centre of town, but traffic pretty much died away at night so we weren't disturbed by the road noise.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The postcard perfection of Maui’s North Shore (white sand beaches, raging waterfalls, stylish cafes, and world-class surfers) just got even better with the opening of the Paia Inn. This beach town boutique inn seamlessly blends modern amenities with the historic character of its building. In a nod to the town’s plantation trade days, the building’s exterior has retained its charm with tin rooftops and rustic hues; yet, the interior mixes contemporary island furnishings with the chic lushness of the W Hotel. ... more less
