Fodor's Expert Review Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa

2605 Kaanapali Pkwy., Kaanapali, Hawaii, 96761, USA Fodor's Choice

Set among dense gardens on Kaanapali's best stretch of beach, the Sheraton offers a quieter, more low-key atmosphere than its neighboring resorts, and sits next to and on top of Puu Kekaa, the site of a nightly torch-lighting and cliff-diving ritual. All rooms have plenty of amenities, including 50-inch flat-screen TVs, and the massive swimming pool resembles a natural lagoon, with rock waterways and wooden bridges; the Spa at Black Rock offers oceanfront services. Dining options range from casual poolside drinks and light fare to upscale Japanese and farm-to-table cuisine, along with a newly renovated lobby lounge bar with incredible property and ocean views. The newly added resort within a resort, the Moana Oceanfront Wing sits atop Puu Kekaa and offers a more exclusive, adults-preferred resort experience.
