Very nice Boutique Hotel
Posted Nov 21, 2016
This is a very nice Boutique Hotel right in the middle of Kihei. You're only 10 to 15 minutes from the airport which is convenient. Close to lots of places to shop and eat. The Hotel used to cater to LGBTQ, but now is mixed as the ownership has changed. There is an intimate feel about this hotel as it is not very large. The grounds are lovely, and the staff are most helpful. There is a hot breakfast served every morning. No extra charges for parking and WIFI which was nice. Oh, and they have grab and go food available for purchase in the lobby. Pricing is a little on the high side in my opinion for the quality of room you are getting. We had a standard room (315) which was ok. The air conditioning was a rather small loud old wall unit. I saw that the other buildings on the grounds had upgraded air conditioning units, so maybe they will all be changed out over time. You can probably get more room on the island for your money, but you will lose the intimate feel and quiet atmosphere. The adults only policy makes the hotel a most peaceful and quiet place to relax. Don't park your car under any trees. The birds will paint your rental car white with conviction.

Thank you very much for the review. You are correct that the AC in your building is old style window units. We are working on a plan to upgrade them to more modern units as we undertake a remodel of those rooms as well. We hope to make all the showers larger, smooth the walls with plaster and change out window coverings and all the furniture. That will take some time and likely happen after high season in the spring of next year. We also are working plans to replace the hot tub with a larger commercial type in ground type that will accommodate more people and have a better filtration system.
Hope to see you again soon at Kohea Kai.
Mahalo for staying with us, Michael
