Honua Kai Resort & Spa, Maui's newest luxury beach resort, is set to open January 2009 on Kaanapali's North Beach. The resort is settled on 38 oceanfront acres near some of the island's more popular snorkeling and dive beaches. The accommodations are situated in two U-shaped buildings with ocean and mountain views, plus landscaping and expansive open spaces.
The 628 one-, two- and three-bedroom guest suites are fully-equipped with luxury resort services, and the resort includes an aqua network of pools, hot tubs, natural pond bridges, waterslide, waterfalls and fountains.
