Kohea Kai Adults Only Hotel in Kihei
Kohea Kai is Maui’s adults-only hotel. It is at 551 South Kihei Road. Phone 808-879-1261.
Kohea Kai is smaller than other Maui hotels and has only 26 rooms, in 5 buildings, each 1 to 2 stories tall. There are studio units (252 square feet), standard hotel rooms (252 sq.ft.), junior suites (375 sq.ft.), full suites (sleeps up to 4 in 500 sq.ft.), penthouses (sleeps up to 4 in 850 to 1000 sq.ft.), and a large penthouse (sleeps up to 6 in 1800 sq.ft.). There are lush grounds surrounding the buildings, with dense foliage of tropical plants and flowers. Every room has at least a kitchenette with a microwave and mini fridge, and some of the rooms have a larger kitchen area with full size refrigerator and range. Each room has at least one king-size bed.
Some amenities at Kohea Kai include free full breakfast every day, free wi-fi, no resort fees, free parking, outdoor pool and hot tub, and available massage services. Snacks and small meals are available 24 hours per day. But the best amenity here is the roof-top sun-deck. From this open-air deck you can relax all day, stare at the ocean, watch the sunset, and then enjoy the stars at night. There is a long beach just across the street from this hotel.
Kohea Kai means “serene ocean.” This is not a luxury resort, but it is a place to avoid the high prices and the hustle and bustle that you get a Maui’s expensive resort hotels. And since it is adults-only, there are no little kids to disturb your relaxing time on Maui.
All guests must be 18 years old or older to stay at Kohea Kai. There is one other adults-only property on Maui, the Hotel Wailea. That one is much more expensive and is more luxurious, but it is uphill away from the ocean.
This hotel was formerly the Maui Sunseeker, before it got new owners and converted to Kohea Kai in 2016.
