The wildfire of August 8th has irreversibly changed not only the physical landscape of our beloved Lahaina, but also the soul of every member of the West Maui community, the island as a whole and those who’ve walked Front Street only once. Even in the most geographically isolated place on the planet, we are all connected in this pain.
West Maui reopens to visitors on October 8.
Visiting Maui is not inconsiderate, in fact, it's essential.
MAUI NEEDS YOU.
HAWAII NEEDS YOU.
THE REST OF THE ISLAND HAS REMAINED OPEN
but has suffered greatly and continues to struggle.
Industry professionals are doing our best to to drown out the bad news that has been the dominant message as of late. MAUI IS OPEN. Travel writers and news outlets have come and experienced first hand the top-notch service and experiences we are known for. MAUI IS OPEN. AND receive the sincere gratitude from employees and business owners in contrast to the "don't come to Maui" messaging. MAUI IS OPEN.
The Maui Vacation Company Ohana (family) is dedicated to maintaining up-to-date information about the reopening and businesses that continue to operate.
We know how logistics and offerings have changed.
YOUR MAUI HOME AWAY FROM HOME
The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is one of the most popular beachfront condominium resorts in West Maui. Families return year after year to stay with us at their Maui home away from home. The value of staying in a condominium versus a cramped hotel room is easy to see. Watch whales while enjoying your morning coffee, cook breakfast in your fully stocked kitchen, and take the chairs from the closet and head to the beach. Shop at Whalers Village, play a round of golf, eat at an oceanfront restaurant and stroll back to watch the sunset on your private lanai. The Whaler is your home base for enjoying the best Kaanapali Resort has to offer.
Spending the day around the pool is a relaxing break from the buzz you'll experience at other resorts. Minus a swim-up bar, waterslide, etc., the Whaler pool is a place families visit with each other, smaller kids learn to swim while older kids pass time between the pool deck and Kaanapali Beach. Cookout at the barbeques or board a sunset sail. It all happens within the tropical oasis that is The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach.
