& Spa on Ka’anapali Beach, Maui

KAANAPALI, Hawaii, Nov. 10, 2008 - Honua Kai Resort & Spa, Maui's newest luxury beach resort, is set to open January 2009 on Kaanapali's North Beach.
Developed by Maui Beach Resort Limited Partnership, a joint venture of Intrawest, Ledcor and J.P.

Honua Kai is the first new whole ownership condominium and townhome beachfront resort to come to Ka’anapali Beach, Maui in over 25 years.

Honua Kai is an Intrawest master planned resort community comprised of two condominium towers, three townhome enclaves, three distinct pool experiences, and Dukes Maui beachside restaurant situated on Maui’s famed Ka’anapali Beach.

Situated on 38 oceanfront acres of pristine North Beach Kaanapali, one of the island's best snorkeling and dive beaches, Honua Kai Resort & Spa is a master plan of resort accommodations situated in two U-shaped buildings with ocean and mountain views, lush landscaping and expansive open spaces. The openness is mirrored in each of the 628 one-, two- and three-bedroom guest suites that are fully-equipped, spacious and homelike with luxury resort services. An imaginative aqua network of pools, hot tubs, natural pond bridges, waterslide, waterfalls and fountains allows for privacy and play.
