At Aston Kaanapali Shores, you'll feel right at home the moment you arrive. This condominium resort combines the comfort and convenience of spacious suites with hotel-caliber services. Located on beautiful Kaanapali Beach, your favorite outdoor vacation activities - from sunbathing to swimming and snorkeling - are literally just steps away.


With a "home away from home" ambience on beautiful Kaanapali Beach, the 463-room Aston Kaanapali Shores blends hotel amenities and services with the casual lifestyle of a vacation condominium.

A choice of one- and two-bedroom suites, studios and hotel rooms make the 10-acre beachfront resort an ideal retreat for families, friends traveling together, couples and destination wedding groups. Guests enjoy the best of both worlds with pleasant places to share the day and cozy retreats for private time.

All accommodations are air-conditioned and feature WiFi Internet access, cable television and daily maid service.

Studios and suites offer furnished private lanai (balconies) with views of tropical gardens and the ocean, plus full kitchens complete with dishwashers for added "at home" convenience. Tasteful decor includes marble countertops in kitchens, and such tropical touches as rattan furnishings and Hawaiian artwork.

For more space and luxury, our beachfront Aloha and Penthouse Suites indulge with a wrap-around lanai for sweeping ocean views off the living area and master bedroom, and designer kitchen with upgraded stainless steel appliances.

An ancient warrior training ground and later a retreat for Hawaiian royalty, Kaanapali is as rich with culture as it is with natural beauty. Since developers selected this three-mile beachfront stretch for Hawaii's first "neighbor island" resort in the 1960s, it has evolved into a favorite tropical getaway that balances recreation and relaxation.

With its sunny West Maui location, Kaanapali is celebrated for its romantic sunsets with the islands of Lanai and Molokai as a backdrop across Auau Channel. Swimmable year round, the calm offshore waters welcome those into snorkeling, stand up paddling, kayaking and surfing.

Beyond the Kaanapali Beach Resort area, diversions run amok. Snorkelers and scuba divers can swim amid the abundant marine life in the crystal clear bays of Napili, Kapalua and Honolua. Honolua Bay is also a top pick among expert surfers drawn to its fast-breaking winter waves.

A five-minute drive south of Kaanapali is colorful Lahaina, where whalers reveled along Front Street in the mid-1800s. Preserving its spirited character while blending in contemporary hot spots, the historic port has a more laid-back attitude these days. Streets are lined with art galleries, boutiques and casual restaurants. And harbor slips welcome ocean lovers with catamarans, sailboats and fishing charters.

Situated on Maui's famous Kaanapali Beach, Aston Kaanapali Shores offers a beautiful setting for romantic weddings and vow renewals in paradise. The resort's expansive lawns, landscaped gardens and picnic areas are available on a complimentary basis for bridal showers, family parties and receptions.

Couples can exchange vows in the intimate garden gazebo. Or they can go barefoot on the beach with nature setting the romantic stage. Our on-site wedding coordinator is available to consult with couples and assist with the ceremony, including arrangement of pre- and post-events.

Destination wedding guests can let their kids play away at Camp Kaanapali while they lounge on the beach or stand up paddle in Kaanapali's gentle waters. While brides and bridesmaids are pampered at the resort's day spa, the groom and his entourage can hop aboard a Lahaina sportfishing charter or play a round on Kaanapali's championship golf courses.

This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   Beautiful hotel, great staff. Close to everything, even walking distance to beautiful scenery. It's right on the beach and super affordable. Waking up to walk outside and see the beautiful mountains on one side and the bright blue ocean on the other, definitely recommend. 5 stars? YES!!

Review:   Beautiful Condos and facilities!!! Pool is excellent for kids. Can get a little crowded since they don't have a big beach. But well worth it. And a grocery store right across the street is great!!! Can get a little windy...but makes it nice at night when sleeping. We already booked another room 😎🏝🌞

Review:   My wife and I stayed here for over a week and have absolutely no complaints! It's a really nice place, really nice pools, really nice people in some pretty cool touristy stores down below. Stop and talk to the lady in the salon! Her name is DJ and she had some amazingly cool tips! If you use the Expedia local experts to book any of your events make sure and double check everything before you book it. We probably could have saved money but we probably would have had to look things separately. With her, we could do it all at once. At face value it looked a little more expensive, but they had some incentives that saved us well over 20% off the total. As for the Aston Kaanapali Shores it was incredible. We toured some other resorts / hotels, but really? Why would you spend that much more? The Aston offered the perfect balance for us. I would love already love to take this trip again.

Review:   They had fun activities to do and the front desk staff was really helpful. The only thing was that they didn't provide us soap and the toaster/coffee maker didn't work. We stayed in penthouse but level six ocean view rooms had more amenities and seemed nicer than ours. Overall enjoyable visit.

Review:   For the price, this is a great place to stay. Our room had a full kitchen, plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable. It appears most rooms have a decent view and the scenery is pleasant. These are individually owned, so it may vary from room to room. Having a full kitchen is the main benefit for us. We like being able to eat in or out. With the beach being public, you can walk the shoreline and enjoy the entire area. Really a great, relaxing place to visit!
