The Aloha AKU Hula Suite sits closest to the La’ie wetlands. Enter through your private door and enjoy the soothing colors and local art commemorating the Hula tradition of Hawaii. Done in Hula skirt green you can almost feel the locals dancing. Drop your bags, put on some Hawaiian music, and kick-back and begin your amazing stay. Pull open the glass slider and step onto your private lanai. Sit down and enjoy the ocean view across the beautiful grassy area or maybe grab a glass of wine and head down toward the beach for a sunset experience. Maui is calling you.

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 estate has 4 beachfront one-bedroom suites and a garden view two-bedroom ohana. Each suite has a private entrance, separate 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. But is still centrally placed in Kihei nearly all of the amenities you might desire.

Guests have described Aloha Aku 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 out front of Aloha Aku is only accessible from Aloha Aku or the private neighboring homes and condos.  As a result the beach is underused and hardly traveled. Sometimes it’s like having your own private beach.

Hidden behind the tallest mangrove forest in the state, Aloha Aku will pleasantly greet you with an extravaganza of natural Hawaiian beauty. Aloha Aku lulls you into a wondrous state of being, yet is in the ultimate location for access to the many conveniences in mid-Kihei. Aloha Aku is well situated to be your base of operations to explore the rest of the Maui island, just twenty minutes from the airport and are within easy walking distance of nearby groceries, shopping, pupu bars(appetizers), dozens of eateries, bars, car rentals, dive shops, and 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) (pronounced ka-nay), 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 cards to worry about), flat screen HD TV’s 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 fully equipped kitchen.  Take a cool dip in the ili-ili (smooth) stone dipping pools or take an invigorating Jacuzzi while watching the stunning sunsets.  In addition there is a gas barbeque on site nestled between some acacia palm trees overlooking the State protected La’ie wetlands.

We can’t wait to host you and see your happy faces and hope that you find that Aloha Aku 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!
