The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach Maui

By travelanswerman | January 26, 2011

During my most recent trip to Maui (33rd year), I stayed at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach. A visit here is like being an honored guest at a Hawaiian home! The hospitality was superb and the location is in the heart of all the resort (Whaler Village) activities.

The resort community offers something for everyone including my vote for the number one public beach in America. When you tire of hanging out at the beach, you might want to check out (next door) the shopping, art galleries and some exceptional restaurants. If your more the outdoor sportsman, maybe a game of golf at one of their two championship courses would suit your desire.

I stayed in a comfortable one bedroom oceanview condo in Tower One on the ninth floor. The view also included the beautiful west Maui mountains. Frequently you catch yourself staring at the mountains or the Pacific Ocean for several minutes. It’s as if time stands still.

The service was superb. When making my initial reservations, I was assisted by Helen at the property. She was so helpful in accomodating my specific room request. While at the property the front desk staff were always friendly and ready to help when called upon. My coffee maker broke one morning and was replaced by staff within 10 minutes. Housekeeping was prompt and timely each day.

The Whaler also offers a day spa which I used twice for a relaxing massage, exercise facility, beauty salon, sauna and a heated pool next to the ocean.

You can be assured my next Maui visit will be sooner than later!
