Ka’anapali offers Hawaiian spirit
TRAVEL agents wanting to offer their clients an authentic Hawaiian experience on Maui can look no further than the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel.
Ka’anapali offers a range of authentic Hawaiian cultural activities that guests can participate in during their stay. Travellers staying at the hotel can learn about the importance of hula in Hawai’an culture as well as learning the traditional dance. Other activities include nala (weaving), kapa (cloth-making) and more.
For 2019, Ka’anapali Beach Hotel has introduced a new activity. The new waa (canoe) is a paddling canoe experience where guests can have the opportunity to venture out on the ocean and along the scenic shoreline of Maui. While on tour they will learn about Maui and Ka’anapali from a Hawaiian persepctive. Guests can choose from a group tour or private charter, with a chance to sightsee and snorkel.
At the end of their stay at the hotel, guests are given a Kukui lei, to symbolise that they have now become part of the Ka’anapali “ohana” (family). Repeat visitors are given a special white nut to add to their lei, making it an ongoing reminder of their holiday.
Of course, being so Hawaiian means the Ka’anapali has a fabulous laid-back vibe, with the hotel ideal for families and groups, with plenty of connecting rooms, an open-air bar and family-friendly eateries. There’s lots to do, with a wide array of water sports and beach action, while the Ka’anapali also provides the perfect base for a wider exploration of Maui which offers a variety of experiences such as golfing, dining, shopping and adventure activities.
