Lahaina or Kihei?


“Hi there from Germany! We plan to stay in May 2014 in Maui. We have two possible Hotels: Plantation Inn or Maui Coast Hotel. Can You tell us which one is better? (Important: very nice beach, variety of excursions, good dining, cleanliness) . Thanks for an answer!”

Maui Coast Hotel is in south Maui in south Kihei, walking distance from Kamaole beach Park 1.  The Plantation Inn is located in west Maui, in the heart of Lahaina Town.  We haven’t stayed at either one, so you’ll have to look at reviews on Yelp or Tripadvisor.  But, a mojor consideration is what side of the island you would prefer.  In our opinion, Kihei has nicer, closer beaches, but Lahaina has more restaurants and shopping in walking distance.

We hope this helps.  We’ll ask around some more and see if we can get recommendations.  ALOHA!
