The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach

The Whaler is located in the heart of the Kaanapali Resort on West Maui.  It is an oceanfront property that offers luxury condominium living along the white sandy coastline known as Ka’anapali Beach or what many once referred to as “Dig-Me” beach.    The setting of The Whaler Resort is unquestionably one of the most sought after locations.


The resort condominiums are found in two separate towers – each having 180 studio, one and two-bedroom units that range in size from 640 sq. ft to almost 2,000 sq. ft.  A serene fishpond with a nature-inspired bridge that is set amongst tropical plants and flowers, the lush courtyard in between the two towers truly gives you the feeling of being in paradise.


Beach parking along Kaanapali Beach is often hard to find.  By staying at The Whaler in Kaanapali, you do not need to worry about this!  Ample parking onsite is conveniently located near the entrance to your tower.  Each unit at The Whaler provides you with a fully equipped kitchen. Stock up on groceries and your favorite beverage at nearby grocery stores or enjoy the freedom to warm up take-out from your favorite restaurant in Whaler’s Village.  Beachside of each tower, enjoy barbecues and picnic tables while you watch the colors change in each of our amazing Maui sunsets.  Should you prefer to stay indoors the central air conditioning in each condominium will keep you cool and you can still enjoy the sunsets from your lanai (balcony)!


A true way to relax is by way of a rejuvenating spa treatment at the in-house spa on the property.  Maui is the perfect place to focus on revitalizing and replenishing the body, mind and spirit.  This spa has a variety of treatment options.  There are also tennis courts on-site and a pickleball court.  All are lighted so you can enjoy them after the sun goes down.  For your ocean adventures, the beachside towel desk can also assist with snorkel gear rentals, stand-up paddleboards and much more!  Near-by there are two 18-hole golf courses that stretch from the mountain-side above Kaanapali Resort to the beach near the Maui Eldorado beach-side cabana.


Enjoy all that Kaanapali has to offer within walking distance. The 3-mile beach walk stretches from Sheraton’s Black Rock to Canoe Beach just past the Hyatt Regency Maui and your condominium at The Whaler is right in the middle. The boardwalk is extremely convenient for a morning cardio workout or a leisurely stroll with some coffee.  Shops and restaurants can be enjoyed in any of the neighboring hotels or at Whaler’s Village.  Relish the free hula performances at Hula Grill and Kaanapali Beach Hotel’s Tiki Bar.  Enjoy fine retailers like Lululemon, Sephora and Tommy Bahama.  Leilani’s on the Beach, Hula Grill and Monkeypod are great restaurants at Whaler’s Village along with many grab-and-go places too.  Many of Maui’s best catamaran and parasailing tours also depart right from Kaanapali Beach.  Literally, the boats pull up to the shoreline for loading and unloading.  Snorkel sails, sunset cruises and parasailing are all at your fingertips.


Lahaina’s historical past can be seen and felt with just a 10minute drive from Kaanapali.  Once the whaling capital of the state, home to the oldest high school west of the Rocky’s (Lahainaluna) this bustling little town is a visitor’s paradise with museums, shops, art galleries, restaurants and a boat harbor.  The Outlets were also added in 2013 and are home to recognized brand names like Coach, Banana Republic, Lucky and Michael Kors. Great products at great prices!  The Outlets also host free weekly hula shows.  Enjoy weekly craft fairs under the famous Banyan Tree, Hawaiian music at the Baldwin House Museum and Second Fridays evening festivities.
