The premier oceanfront hotel at family-friendly Kaanapali Beach.
The Sheraton Maui, one of the original Kaanapali hotels, is located on the very best part of Kaanapali Beach; one building virtually climbs up the side of an 80-foot rock formation called Pu‛u Keka‛a (Black Rock). Most of the 508 rooms, plus 44 suites, have been recently renovated and boast ocean views. A 142-yard freshwater swimming lagoon meanders through the grounds, and there are two bars alongside. You'll find adequate dining options here, one of which features the showmanship of local teppanyaki chefs. There's also a breakfast buffet at the Black Rock Terrace. With 12,000 square feet of indoor function space, an outstanding oceanfront lawn and an innovative convention services team, Sheraton Maui appeals to groups of up to 500 participants. Specialized services include the Starwood Preferred Guests kids program, a full-service business center, activity concierge, salon and day spa. Contemporary Hawaiian entertainment leads up to a traditional torch lighting and cliff diving ceremony at sunset. Staying here means you can easily explore the colorful sea life surrounding Black Rock, touted as the snorkeling mecca of Kaanapali.
