Independent Hotels on Maui Island
Maui Island’s independent hotels reach from luxury all-inclusive resorts and beach hotels to three-star boutique accommodation and family-friendly condos. The majority of Maui’s independent hotels are family run and give you a high level of service, helping you to experience the best of island life.
Staying in Maui’s Independent Hotel
The majority of Maui independent hotels are in Lahaina, Napili-Honokowai and Kapalua. And each of the independent hotels is unique, offering everything from spa services to barbecue grills and onsite restaurants. Make the most of the Hawaiian sun by taking a dip in outdoor pools and enjoying a snack in the picnic areas.
Settle in for an evening on your spacious patio or join other guests at an in-house luau. Maybe you’d rather enjoy a quiet, air-conditioned evening in front of the TV or cook up a storm in your fully equipped kitchen if you’re in an independent condo.
