The Nalu Kai Lodge was recommended by a local so we knew it was going to be great. We arrived late and the lodge is just a short 5 mile drive down the road from The airport. Parking is limited but we were prepared and just parked in town and rolled our suitcases across the street. I moved my car...

This is a great place to start your trip to Maui if you arrive late in the evening as we did, around 11:00 pm.The lodge had good instructions about checking yourself in. We enjoyed the town the next day and visited many shops and galleries. Paia is a friendly and welcoming town, very close to the airport. The beach is...

Struggled with writing a review due to the fact this is a very small place in the middle of everything - once the true reviews come in - it is probably going to be hard to get a reservation going forward - but we owe it to the place to give it what it deserves. Absolute wonderful place. Clean and...

This was my first time staying at Nalu Kai Lodge and I wasn't sure what to expect. But from arrival to departure the experience was seamless. Even when I accidently locked myself out and had to call the lodge number, someone was there within 15 min. to let me back into the room. Lots of attention to detail throughout, from...

My husband and I stayed in the Bamboo Garden studio offsite the actual lodge. The property is an absolute dream - the outdoor like an enchanted garden, the indoor immaculately clean and with a cool decor. Would highly recommend staying there, just ask the Nalu Kai management team for their other properties.

Sweet queen bed room, very clean and inviting, nice shower and bathroom although lacking in shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, lotion and hair dryer, please take note if you need these things. There is a very nice common area with a bar, BBQ, table, hammock and laundry room. Please note, privacy is almost impossible! Jalousie windows might be missing glass panes,...

Stayed here on our honeymoon, my second time and my wife's third visit. We love Paia and love staying at Nalu Kai. It's reasonably priced, you're right in the middle of town, and the grounds are super relaxing. Second floor deck with ocean views and breeze, grassy lounge chair area where I read some, hammock, pretty tropical landscaping, and a...
