Real Estate Agent with Maui Resort Realty RB#21286

Love your Honua Kai life from the ocean view 3 bedroom/3bath suite Hokulani #729 which was just listed for $2,435,000. Hokulani #729  is distinguished by its 7th. floor inner courtyard location, refined finishes (granite, travertine, Viking appliances),  and onobstructed ocean, outer island, inner courtyard, and sunset views. Its strong rental income will fill the appetite of investors looking for a strong ROI. Honua Kai is literally a world class resort and a perfect home away from home. 

This property is perfect for larger groups of families who want to travel together and spend their time in the sun in sumptuos accomdations all under the same roof. 

Honua Kai Hokulani #729 | 1,600 sq.ft. living + 240 sq.ft. lanai | 3BR / 3BA | $2,435,000| (MLS# 368995)

Situated on the preferred location of the inner courtyard of Honua Kai’s original and most elegant tower, Hokulani #729 offers direct ocean views and year round sunsets from all three bedrooms, the living area, and the spacious covered exterior lanai area. The prevailing tradewinds will not be a factor due to the location within the complex; and there is nothing to obstruct the views from the 7th floor elevation.

Hokulani 729 is located on the left side of the two center stacks in the above photo on the seventh floor. 

One of the comments that we most frequently receive from our guests is that this floor plan feels much more like a home than it does a condo. Guests absolutely love the layout of this suite, with master suites on both the southern and northern ends of the condo. There is one more bedroom on the southern end with a full bathroom directly adjacent to the entry doorway of of this bedroom. Each one of the bedrooms has a full ocean view.

Last year, we cleared $215K in gross rental income for Hokulani #825.

Direct White Sand Beachfront Location in Ka’anapali, Maui

Honua Kai is the preeminent resort in all of West Maui (4 Diamond rating) with its direct beachfront location, newer construction (completed in 2008), and unmatched pools and amenities including the Ho’ola Spa.

Honua Kai is at the center of all that West Maui has to offer – 5 star restaurants, championship golfing, and world class white sand beaches with stunning natural surroundings. With Honua Kai’s convenient central location, you will not need to travel more than 20 minutes in any direction for a complete and memorable vacation experience.

Honua Kai Resort and Spa was recently recognized by Conde Nast Traveler on their Reader’s choice 2014 Gold List as a top 10 resort in Hawaii.

What we love about Honua Kai 

  • Honua Kai is the newest beachfront whole ownership condominium in West Maui, Hokulani was built in 2008 and Konea in 2009. Surrounding whole ownership buildings are 20-40 years older than Honua Kai.
  • Honua Kai is zoned for short-term vacation rentals – occupancy rates, average daily rates, and overall rental income have steadily risen throughout the years and are some of the very strongest in all of Hawaii.
  • The onsite Ho’ola Spa is a full-service spa with natural treatments using exclusively Maile organic products.
  • 38 acres of direct oceanfront land – Honua Kai is one of the largest resorts in all of Maui, which allows its owners and guests to experience the sensation of spreading their wings and enjoying all the open space.
  • The onsite Aina Gourmet Market is a great place for sandwiches, fresh juices, a full-service coffee shop, and some basic sundries.
  • The 5 different pool experiences at Honua Kai have something for everyone and are a major reason guests return every year.
  • Duke’s Beach House restaurant is directly onsite with excellent breakfast, lunch, and dinner service, and great local entertainment. Duke’s also takes care of the poolside beverage and food service. I have eaten at many of the restaurants in West Maui and truly feel that Duke’s is one of the best values in the entire area.
  • Snorkel through vibrant reefs steps from the resort. Additional instruction is available in the resort pool and diving directly in front of the resort.
  • Shopping center within walking distance: restaurants, supermarket, dive/snorkel rental shop.
  • ‘Beach Walk’ connects Honua Kai to Whaler’s Village.
  • Oceanside restaurants & bars within walking distance.
  • The quaint and historic town of Lahaina is 10 minutes by car.
  • Championship golfing, world class restaurants, and more stunning white sand beaches all within 20 minutes or less throughout West Maui (Lahaina, Ka’anapali, Napili, and Kapalua).

Honua Kai Resort Amenities

Residents and guests will enjoy the recent opening of the Ho’ola Spa which is located on the ground floor of the Konea tower. Ho’ola Spa offers therapeutic body treatments that combine the cultural attributes of the islands’ unique healing traditions with the very latest advances in wellness.

Located in Hokulani, the fitness classroom features a wide variety of daily classes for every fitness level.

The Best Pools of Any Resort in West Maui

One of the main attractions to Honua Kai are the 3 pools, 3 hot tubs, waterfalls, lazy river, and kids pools. All three spectacular swimming pools offer their own unique experience.

Konea Pools

  • The formal pool is an infinity-edge lap pool featuring two Jacuzzi whirlpools and perfect ocean views.
  • The ‘Ohana (family) pool features a one hundred and twenty foot water slide and a waterfall that cascades into the main swimming area. Natural lava rock forms an elevated hot tub that takes in the ocean views. The ‘Ohana pool has a sandy beach and a shallow ‘keiki’ (kids) pool.
  • The river pool features a meandering river that flows through smaller swimming holes and waterfalls.

On-Site Dining Venues

Enjoy ocean view dining and stellar local music entertainment at Dukes Beach House located directly in front of the Hokulani tower. Dukes will also do poolside food and beverage service around the pools at Honua Kai and you can call in orders for pick up while staying in the room. Their offerings are tasty and affordable, they have service with aloha, and its tough to beat the location and ambiance. The cuisine is Hawaiian influenced with a focus on fresh, sustainable seafood and premium steaks.


Also located in ground floor level of the Hokulani tower is Aina Gourmet Market which is a charming, rustic cafe with a full coffee bar; deli case of pastries, prepared salads, and snacks, hot panini sandwiches, and “zappers” for healthy grab ‘n go meals.

In the event that you would like to do a little cooking of your own, in addition to the professional kitchen in Hokulani #729, there are also 8 ocean view grills throughout the resort that area available for all guests to use.

 Kaanapali North Beach


Kaanapali North Beach looking north towards the island of Molokai. 

The reef fronting Honua Kai is vibrant and has an amazing plethora of tropical fish, turtles, and in whale season I have seen a few only about 50 yards off shore. This stretch is very special to both me and my wife as I proposed to her on this beach and enjoyed steak and lobster at Duke’s back in 2011. It is easy to understand why this is a special place for so many who come from across the world to be here. It’s all about the memories made on Maui. I have been privileged to assist many buyer and seller clients at Honua Kai.
