Special Note: What’s in a name?
In order to clarify, Maui Resorts are considered to be the higher-end luxury accommodations on Maui. Maui hotels are mid-priced buildings that aren’t quite as expensive as the Resorts and with fewer amenities. This needs to be distinguished now because you’ll find that most Maui condominiums and hotels refer to themselves as resorts. Though they may be very nice oceanfront units, we’ve reserved the distinction of Resort for those complexes with a spa, pool, oceanfront, restaurants, and all the other wonderful things that make a resort special. And though they can be equally as impressive, everything else can be considered Maui vacation rentals. If you’re looking for something more rustic, you might be interested in camping in Maui.
