"The Whaler is perfect for a family vacation. The beach front units have lanais that open up to a nice area where the kids can play. Condos are the way to go with children, the extra space compared to a hotel room makes a huge difference. The small pool is the only downside to the whaler, but with the ocean steps away, you don't even notice."

Located on Kaanapali Beach just steps away from the ocean shore, the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach offers elegant condominium rentals in a lively resort community. In addition to fabulous ocean and island views, all 360 suites feature private open-air balconies, central air conditioning, and fully equipped kitchens. WiFi internet access is available to hotel guests for an additional fee. Parking is available for $12 per day.

Guests can spend their days relaxing on the sandy shores of Kaanapali Beach or take advantage of several resort amenities including an oceanfront swimming pool, barbeque grills, jet spas, an activities desk, tennis courts, and a fitness center. The resort is conveniently located across from two championship golf courses and close to venues offering numerous other island activities include hiking, snorkeling, and surfing.

Dining options include Cane & Taro, an open-air restaurant with stunning ocean views; Hula Grill, a casual beachfront restaurant with a barefoot bar; and Leilani’s on the Beach, a waterfront restaurant famous for its fine steaks and seafood. Additional restaurants can be found in the surrounding resort community and are easily accessible via the Kaanapali Trolley or the beachfront footpath.

Guests staying at the Whaler on Kaanapali beach can head next door to Whalers Village, a lively seaside mall with a complimentary whaling museum that provides visitors with a glimpse into Lahaina’s history as a whaling town. Whales are frequently spotted off the coast of Maui during the winter months, and whale-watching tours can be arranged at various locations in Lahaina.
