The Cool Pool of the Week: Kohea Kai Resort Maui

Hawaii-bound Millennials looking to make their friends jealous on social media can do so with one swift dip in Maui’s newest pool.

Kohea Kai Resort Maui, an adults-only resort, recently announced it is open and welcoming Maui visitors. The 26-room boutique property located in the heart of Kihei just steps from the beach, offers ocean views, a rooftop lounge and, of course, a stylish, outdoor pool.

The views from the pool are of the gardens at the resort. Clients can swim while taking in views of tall palm trees and colorful tropical flowers.

At the resort’s outdoor pool area, guests can relax on lounge chairs as they soak up the Maui sun and enjoy the island breeze. Agents should note that, as a courtesy to guests staying in rooms near the pool, the resort does not currently rent out the pool area. And that’s why we suggest recommending the Pool View Penthouse, which offers 1,800 square- feet of space, a gourmet kitchen, an indoor Jacuzzi, a washer and dryer and two private lanais. This three-bedroom, two-bath suite overlooks the pool and is great for entertaining friends. 

For those who want to take it all in, the resort’s open-air Rooftop Deck offers unobstructed ocean views. Guests can stretch out in lounge chairs and star gaze, enjoy a sunset or whale watch (whale season is mid-December to mid-April). This space is also available for private events upon request. However, there is no pool at the Rooftop Deck.

Agents should note that the resort doesn't have a liquor license, but guests are allowed to purchase alcohol to have in their rooms and enjoy poolside if they wish.
