Enter the Honu (Turtle) Suite at Aloha Aku and the calming ocean blue walls with original Honu art will inspire your stay. The generous space and “the owners thought of everything” can be your base of operations for cruising the island or just your tranquil getaway space. Wander across the grassy reserve land and keep an eye out for the turtles resting on the sand or grab a kayak and paddle out to see these magnificent watery friends swimming in their natural environment.
Blessed by Kaunas, Aloha Aku means the place that ‘gives love and kindness’. Formally known as Aikane Hale.
AlohaAKU Inn & Suites is a tucked away, one-of-a-kind vacation gem. Our luxury beachfront and State Protected wetlands estate has 4 beachfront one-bedroom suites and a garden view two-bedroom ‘ohana. Each suite has a private entrance, seperate living room, full kitchen and is like having your own condo at the beach in Maui. This special place is hidden behind a private, double gated entrance, lined with 700 ft. of lighted coconut palms that lure you into the feeling of leaving the world behind. Yet it is still centrally placed in Kihei nearly all of the amenities you might desire.
Guests have described AlohaAKU as ‘the most tranquil and ultimate place for relaxation’! You can’t help but feel the peacefulness of Maui’s beauty wash over you here. The beach in front of AlohaAKU is only lightly traveled. Sometimes it’s like having your own private beach. Hidden beside the tallest mangrove forest in the state, you will be pleasantly greeted with an extravaganza of natural hawaiian beauty.
AlohaAKU lulls you into a wondrous state of being, yet is located in the ultimate location for access to the many conveniences in mid-kihei. And it’s well placed to be your base of operations to explore the rest of Maui.
Just twenty minutes from the airport, we are within easy walking distance of nearby groceries, shopping, restaurants, bar-pubs, car rental, dive shops, and much, much more. When guests return to the property they say it ‘feels like home’. Some never leave the property during their visit, happy to just lounge around and suntan from their private lanai or on the beach out front!
Your hosts, Charlene (maui-girl) and Gary (G-kane), have upgraded all the suites to include air conditioning, ceiling fans, free high speed Wi-Fi, free designated on property parking, key codes for everything (no keys or key cards to worry about), flat-screen hdtvs with DirecTV in the living room and in the separate bedrooms. Warm up a snack or make yourself a full meal in your suite’s nicely outfitted full kitchen. In addition there is a gas barbeque on site nestled between some acacia palm trees overlooking the wetland pond.
We can’t wait to host you and see your happy faces. We hope that you will find that AlohaAKU has the intimacy, amenities, and aloha to be your favorite luxury getaway. Maui is considered one of top vacation destinations in the world and after staying at Aloha Aku we are confident that you will have your own special reasons why!
