Maui Prince Hotel

Secluded at Makena Resort on a perfect smile of a beach at the foot of Haleakala, The Maui Prince Hotel is a sanctuary. The serenity can be felt from the first moment a lei of seashells is draped over your shoulders and you are welcomed with the genuine smiles and warm attention of the staff. 

The entire hotel is built around an Asian meditation garden with stone paths, quiet corners for contemplation, waterfalls, and streams swarming with brilliant red and gold carp. The roof is the sky. The door of every room opens to this atrium, while the windows and lanai look out upon the ocean.

Most people settle into the immediate serenity and find themselves sitting beside the pool or in a cabana on the beach, watching all the little white boats streaming to Molokini. And if the sea is calm, they may hear the great humpback whales singing in the deep. Immediately upon entering the hotel grounds, you are struck by a sense of tranquility and serene beauty. And no wonder. All rooms open to a central courtyard featuring immaculate Japanese gardens and mesmerizing koi ponds. The moving quilt work of color is a wonderful contrast to the precision landscaping of the trees, shrubs and rocks. An interesting note: Most of the koi fish are rumored to be decades old; some may even live to end of this century. Learn more about our hotel features here.

Guest rooms at the Maui Prince Hotel offer views of an expanse of ocean and the varied beauty of Makena's landscape. You can watch the sun rise over Haleakala, then slide into the water behind the offshore island of Molokini. Like many of our guests, you may choose to do little else. 

Guest Rooms: All 310 rooms are well-appointed in traditional island decor, with all the amenities that one would expect in a first-class hotel including spacious lanais and double doors. 

Suites: Each one of the 19 suites is richly appointed in the finest interiors with a Hawaiian flair. Every oceanfront suite has a living room and a spectacular ocean view. 

The Maui Prince Hotel rests on a peaceful Hawaiian white-sand beach at the foot of Haleakala, Maui's highest mountain. An Asian meditation garden surrounds the resort and leads our guests down stone paths to quiet corners for contemplation or romance. Soothing waterfalls and streams enhance the splendor of the hotel. Each and every room is situated to allow our guests to look out upon the ocean from personal lanais.

It was said that King Kalakaua used to sail from his palace in Honolulu to Makena to retreat from the cares of state. At the Maui Prince Hotel, Makena is still a refuge, still treating everyone like a king, concocting its ancient magic for every generation.
