Leisure on the Beachfront within Kaanapali Beach Resort
Within Kaanapali Beach Resort and set along the pristine Kaanapali Beach shoreline is Aston at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach, a condominium resort that exudes leisure and relaxation. Comprised of two 12-story mid-century towers on six acres of lush tropical landscaping, guests spend days dipping in the pool, catching sunsets on the beachfront, and unwinding by the fire pits. Other convenient on-site amenities include a jet spa, sauna, fitness center, spa, barbecue grills, tennis court, and concierge. Aston at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is just a hop away from Whaler’s Village and a short drive to the town of Lahaina.
Traveling to Hawaii may seem daunting but was not that bad despite the hoops you have to jump through to get in. Another nice stay at the Aston Whaler. Unfortunately they could not accommodate us for the entire stay in one room and we had to move mid vacation. Room 952 was amazing! Ocean front and spectacular views from the wrap-around balcony. Room was well appointed and updated. We had to move mid trip to 1052. While the balcony and room views were amazing, the room itself needed some repair and updating. Coffee maker was broke and the TV stopped working among other small issues (well the final 4 was one so that might be a big issue). The staff was very quick to respond and fixed as necessary. The move itself was less than desirable as it left us without our things and no place to go for about 5 hours. A bit of an inconvenience for sure. If they knew the change had to be made, planning a direct move would have eased the disruption to our vacation. I have rated this place 5 stars before, but not on this trip.
This is a beautiful location on Kaanapali Beach. We arrived a little after the 4PM check-in and walked right to the front and were in our place quickly. A wonderful bellman took all of our luggage and Costco items to our room. We were given studio room 1116 with a garden view and what a view we had, I would have called it an ocean view. The room was very nice with no issues at all. Due to Covid we did not have daily cleaning service, but all amenities and towels were brought to you upon request. We played tennis on their wonderful courts and the gym was just what we needed. We can’t wait to come back to

If you had a restaurant and Bar it would be perfection. Everyone was very friendly and helped us with any needs we had. The view was spectacular. My Husband and I have visited 3 times and LOVE everything and all 3 times.

We just got back from a week at the Aston at the Whaler and loved it. The resort provided everything we needed for a great Hawaiian vacation. Our room was clean and updated. We had a studio ocean view condo. We really enjoyed having breakfast and coffee on our balcony each day overlooking the ocean. One great feature about the property is that it is not too large and very manageable to navigate. You can get from your room to the beach in under 5 minutes. Some of the other resorts in Maui are so large and confusing to navigate. Additionally, the resort is located on one of the best parts of Kaanapali Beach. If you are looking for a laid back trip, clean affordable room, the Aston at the Whaler is a great choice.
We just stayed there for a family vacation and our rating are not inflated. They reflect exactly what we experienced. Highly recommend this property and their staff. If we come back to Maui we will book here again. Mahalo!
