10 Best Hotels & Lodging on Maui

As inconvenient as it is, as humans, we must sleep. As a result of turning from our nomadic wasy and settling into permanent dwellings some 10,000 years ago, we are no longer used to the process of seeking out a suitable bed each night. At no time is this more apparent than when planning a vacation. Suddenly, where we will sleep becomes a factor in all planned activities. Ideally, we want to find a comfortable place in a good location, so we can make the most of our short time away from home.

A hotel should not only be conveniently located, but it should also offer all the appropriate amenities. Looking for a basic, affordable room without all the fluff, so you can get on the Hana Highway or on the next hiking trail at a moment’s notice? Or perhaps you would prefer to appeal to your more refined side and take advantage of a complete line of spa services?  Maui’s got you covered.

Unfortunately, finding the perfect hotel is not always easy, and the search can quickly become the most stressful part of travel. Relax. This list of the best places to stay on Maui was created to take the guesswork out of getting some rest on Maui.
