Experience Maui’s nature at it’s finest with this one-of-a-kind Beachfront Estate and only property in Kihei to enjoy being adjacent to the lush, state-protected La’ie wetlands at AlohaAKU Inn & Suites . We strive to make your stay a visual extravaganza as well as a tranquil and comfortable experience.
Enter the private banana-leaf patina gate that lures you along the 700 foot long coconut-lined driveway to be welcomed past the 2nd decorative gate and onto the AlohaAKU Beachfront Estate property, complete with tropical fruit grove.
Look around and admire the lush gardens, the vast array of coconut and other fruit trees as well as the numerous indigenous Hawaiian plants. At the south edge of the property you will see that we are tucked behind the tallest Mangrove Forest in the Islands along with the abundance of protected waterfowl and wildlife. The La’ie wetlands pond collects the rain waters that flow from upcountry to the ocean. This was once the feeder stream for an ancient and sacred Hawaiian fishpond ruins that exist just beyond the end of the stream.
Park your car on the generous on-property parking area along the pond. Enjoy the fresh ocean air and beautiful Maui climate. Head to your Suite or take a tour of the property.
As you are drawn toward the ocean, catch the amazing view through the Keawe (Mesquite) trees and wander onto the beach to feel the sand between your toes and let the waves lap up around your ankles. “You’re on MAUI”. Head back onto the estate and notice the ili ili (smooth) rock lined wading pools and the Jacuzzi ready to be heated up to give you that relaxing dip you know you deserve. Enjoy it, along with hand picked Ohia wood posts brought in special from the Big Island of Hawaii that outline the AlohaAKU building and let the hand carved Tiki torches set the mood.
There is an outdoor shower and foot wash for after that great beach walk. With motion sensor lighting, security cameras and night beach patrol to help make your stay safe and comfortable. Get settled in and sit back on your private lanai to gaze out on the lush green lawn, the islands of Lanai and Kahoolawe vista, as well as, the ocean beyond to soak up the Maui weather and perfect temperatures. Great sunsets almost every night, it’s up to you to just sit back and relax in the tranquility that we call AlohaAKU- the place that gives love and kindness .
