The resort condominiums are found in two separate towers – each having 180 units, including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom condos 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, 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 where you can prepare your own meals and enjoy them at an ocean-view specious private balcony. Stock up on groceries at nearby grocery stores - Safeway, Grocery Depot, Foodland, Times Supermarket, or enjoy the freedom to warm up a take-out from your favorite restaurant at the nearby upscale oceanfront shopping center - the Whalers Village.


At the 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! Nearby 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.
