Aston Mahana at Kaanapali is a tranquil tropical retreat that takes full advantage of its beautiful Northern Kaanapali Beach setting. Guests rave about the beautiful landscaping and decor, but it’s the ocean that is truly the star of the show. Every suite boasts floor-to-ceiling oceanfront views that make you feel as if you’re floating above the Pacific. Each unit includes a full kitchen, washer, and dryer unit, and breezy balconies. Enjoy all the comforts of home, with breathtaking views of Lanai and Molokai as an added bonus.
This is the closest resort to the ocean. Closer than the Ritz Carlton, Westin and the Hilton.The views are spectacular, hospitality is great. Karen greeted us upon arrival, it was a smooth check in. Reading the reviews I was concerned that the rooms would not get cleaned daily, But day 3 here and they have not only cleaned, but loaded our dishwasher for us as well. We booked the 1bedroom premium oceanfront and could not be happier that we did. It’s a one bedroom apartment with a 60 inch tv with spectrum and WiFi included. It is a 1 bedroom apartment right on the ocean. I could not be happier with this location for our vacation. I will be back.
My 12th time was not a disappointment!!!!

For the last 12 summers I have made The Mahana my second home because to me it has the best ocean front on the whole island. I visited Maui and The Mahana on 8/2 to 8/14 and I was not disappointed. I hope I once again can go to my second home next summer. God bless The Mahana for bringing me inner peace!!!

More like a 4.5. You are as oceanfront as you can get. It looks like you are on a cruise from your window. There really isn’t any good beach in front though until you walk further down. But it isn’t far away. Really close to Time Market.
Unit can get a bit too bright when the sun shines in during the afternoon but you get excellent sunsets too. I already booked a second stay during whale soup, when the whales migrate.
Beautiful place !
Lovely and clean apartment with beautiful views of the sea, close to everything ! enjoyed the visit . Everything was provided for the stay. Clean dishes, washing machine. The best part is the ocean so close , you walk down and you are on the beach.
Some of the best views in Maui
We stayed at the Aston Manama for five nights in July, as part of a Costco Vacation package. We were very pleased with this stay.
Our room was on the third floor. The decoration was a bit outdated, but that was easily lost in the incredible view from the balcony. You could literally drop a rock from the balcony into the ocean. Our first night we slept with the sliding glass door open so that we could hear the waves.
The room was clean and the front desk staff were very friendly. I liked this hotel because it didn’t feel like one of those mega resorts with a giant pool and restaurant. Why pay for a fancy pool when you are mere feet away from the ocean.
One major bonus was the free parking for our rental car. There isn’t much of a beach in front of the hotel, but you can walk a few hundred feet from the hotel to find a nice beach. The hotel was within walking distance of many fine restaurants. We highly recommend checking out the foot carts near the main road.
The Hawaiian word Mahana means ‘twins' and was chosen to represent the two “twin” towers that make up our property. Together with stunning views of Molokai and Lanai (the two islands that can be seen from our resort) Mahana is a special name for our place in paradise.
