My wife and I first came to Maui in 1979. For a week we had a wonderful time . Then we had to return home. As the plane ascended we looked down to see the beautiful turquoise water at Maui's edge and we vowed to return. That initial visit has resulted in our returning to Maui for over 20 vacations.Each time we planned to go our children couldn't wait.
The Westin Kaanapali Resort was built in 2006 and is at the water's edge. It is a "drop dead" gorgeous property with all the amenities you would expect of a luxury resort. Westin is responsible for the furnishing and maintenance of each unit and they have done a excellent job. This is a 2 bedroom unit and it is comprised of studio with a full kitchen , ,washer /dryer , large bathroom and lanai. there is a separate one bedroom with a full kitchen, living room/dining area , washer /dryer and huge bathroom and a large lanai Both these units have an ocean view . they are next to each other but have separate entrances so each side is very private.
There are as many activities as you could desire either on property or close by. Examples of activities: snorkeling (directly in front of the hotel), scuba diving , golfing, tennis, zip lining ,parasailing , shopping and dining . The resort has beautiful grounds with multiple pools, pool slides that the children love ( I like them also) , restaurants at various price points, abeach bar , a country market and a very very friendly staff who actually want to help you in any way.
The week that we are offering is November 22,2014 ( Saturday) to November 29th. Thanksgiving is on November 27th. This is a very popular time to visit. The weather is in the high 70's to low 80's and the ocean temperature about 78 degrees.
After you unpack you go for a swim and have a MaiTai at your pool lounge or partake in a variety of activities. It's your vacation so it's rightfully your choice.
When you confirm a reservation , if you wish, I will be happy to send you suggestions of restaurants at various price points and answer any questions about possible activities . The hotel also had several knowledgeable concierges.
When you arrive you check in at the front desk and provide a credit card as you will probably want to charge drinks, meals ,etc. on property.
Housekeeping is provides towels and garbage collection daily. The unit has full maid service with change of sheets every 3rd day. When you go to the pools or ocean there is a kiosk that provides towels for you . it's important to return the towels or you will be charged for them. If during the day they become wet just exchange them for new ones , no problem. If you feel like barbecuing there are extensive facilities for doing so.
Reaching Maui involves a 51/2 flight from the west coast. Once there you are paying for a luxury resort and that is what you should expect to receive. . Once you arrive and see the accommodations , the grounds ,the ocean and feel the gentle Maui breeze I think you will be very pleased with your decision to stay here.
