Makena Beach and Golf Resort (former Maui Prince Hotel)

The Makena Beach and Golf Resort (until 2009 called the Maui Prince Hotel) was a few miles south of the other major resort hotels in Wailea.  It CLOSED permanently on July 1, 2016.  Because of its isolated location and somewhat smaller size, it was quieter than the Grand and the other big Wailea hotels.  But that location also means that it is a few minutes longer drive to get from the Makena Beach to shopping, restaurants and sightseeing.  Phone the Makena Beach Hotel at 808-874-1111.

All rooms at the Makena Beach Hotel had at least a partial ocean view.  Room prices were a little less than at most other major South Maui hotels (Grand WaileaFour SeasonsFairmont).  The Makena golf course (formerly called the North Makena course) is nearby.  Two excellent restaurants in the Makena Beach Hotel were Molokini Bar & Grill and Raku Japanese Restaurant (formerly Hakone).  The hotel continued the tradition of the previous Prince Court restaurant, later called Molokini Bar & Grill, by having Maui’s most lavish (and expensive) buffet brunch on Sundays.

If you wanted an out-of-the-way location on the sunny south side of Maui, then the Makena Beach and Golf Resort was a good choice.  For reviews and photos of other choices of hotels on this side of Maui see South Maui hotels.
