Paia Inn Hotel Review: Conveniently located ten minutes from Kahului International Airport, the chic Paia Inn provides a calming sanctuary in the heart of the eclectic and funky capital of Maui's north shore. This 1920s-era property has been masterfully recreated and renovated into a boutique inn that features European-style elegance fused with Indonesian décor. Three standard rooms look out over the town's main road and feature flat screen televisions, air conditioning, iPod docks, refrigerators and a full line of spa quality bath amenities. Guests have private access to sandy Paia Bay, and from there can hook up with walking trails that lead to three different north shore beaches. While the standard rooms are reason enough to stay, the garden suites are truly magical. One- and-two bedroom suites feature full-service kitchens and spacious interiors, and the three-bedroom beach house comes fully loaded with a private hot tub, stainless steel kitchen, outdoor movie screening lounge and a secluded oceanfront location perfect for watching surfers and sunsets. All rooms feature the Polynesian-inspired artwork of local artist Avi Kiriarty. Guests receive complimentary coffee, tea and local fruit in a soothing outdoor courtyard, and also enjoy freebies such as Internet and parking.
