Fodor's Expert Review Westin Nanea Ocean Villas

45 Kai Malina Pkwy., Kahana, Hawaii, 96751, USA

It's rare to find a resort that so thoroughly incorporates authentic Hawaiian cultural symbols and traditions into its design, but this deluxe beachfront property in North Kaanapali, opened in 2017, carries this commitment into its native landscaping and Puuhonua O Nanea cultural center that hosts artifacts, displays, activities, and talks. More home than hotel, the one- to three-bedroom "villas" have full kitchens, washer/dryers and master bathroom perks such as free-standing soaking tubs and double-sink vanities.

  • great location for snorkeling and water sports
