Floor Layout:

Rent as Oceanfront 1 Bedroom, or Hotel Room, or 2 Bedroom

215 Mana Kai can be rented as a one bedroom condominium or two bedroom condominium, or as a hotel room. Each unit has color cable TV, ceiling fans and private telephone number, with remote access answering machines. The one or two bedroom condominium has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and private ocean front lanai. The hotel room is garden view, without lanai and kitchen. Hotel room 215B has greater privacy than most other hotel rooms in the building because it is an end unit without a walkway in front. In addition, it is sound-proofed.

Each unit has its own private, secure, keyed entrance.


The Maui Mana Kai is located at 2960 S. Kihei Road on the border between Kihei and Wailea. Click here for map.

It is on Keawakapu Beach, which many locals call the finest beach on the Island of Maui. Most days, especially in the morning, the water is flat and perfect for snorkeling just 150 feet from your room. Later in the afternoon, if the wind picks up a bit, small waves form which are perfect for boogie or body boarding. Just head down to the beach. Forget something? In one minute you are back home to pick it up!

Golf at nearby Wailea, Makena and Silverwood courses.


Sheltered from the prevailing northeast trade winds, Kihei averages about 4 inches of rain per year. The "rainy" season is December through March. A long period of rain might be five minutes.

Normally skies are bright, clear and sunny in the morning with occasional clouds sheltering beach goers in the afternoon. Winds are light or non existent in the morning and pick up to light winds in the late afternoon as the uneven heating of the water and land occurs. Near sunset the wind dies down again. Kihei is sheltered from the trade winds by the extinct volcano Haleakala. Temperatures range from approximately 70 to 85 degrees in the day, and 65 to 75 at night depending on the season.

Building Facilities

The ground level floor contains a swimming pool, restaurant, beauty shop, clothing store, gift shop and a small grocery store. There is also an activity desk to make your reservations for such things as whale watching, dinner cruises, luau, riding a bike down Haleakala, golf and much more. Washer/Dryers are on each floor. Meeting and conference facilities are available on-site.


Within the first mile or so south of the Maui Mana Kai are five luxury resort hotels, including five star restaurants and spas. You can walk to them just down the beach and smile, as you know you are staying at a better equipped facility. You can cook something if you want for a lot less money and it is quieter. If not, you can eat at the hotel facilities.


The Maui Mana Kai has the fine dining Five Palms Restaurant downstairs and right on the beach. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the 5 Palms has an outside and inside dining area as well, as a full bar.

Next door and also on the beach is the new Sorentos owned and managed by Tri-Star Restaurants. Sorentos, fine Italian dining, has the same name as its sister restaurant located in Honolulu. Tri-Star also runs the world famous Nick's Fish Market at the Kai Lanai Resort about 1.5 miles south of the Mana Kai. These restaurants employ team serving, whereby a group of waiters and bus people all combine to satisfy your every need.

Within a 20 minute drive there are over 25 exceptional restaurants.

Ruth Chris Steakhouse, Tommy Bahamas, Cheeseburgers in Paradise and Lahaina's famous Longhi's just opened at the new upscale "Shops at Wailea". In mid-town Kihei there is Bada Bings italian restaurant and the new LuLu's overlooking the ocean.


Within a mile of the Mana Kai is the new Shops at Wailea. Several grocery stores including a health food store are within one mile. There is a general store right downstairs at the Maui Mana Kai.

Meeting Rooms

Are available in the building.

Cell Phones

Cell phones work in the unit and on the beach. My Verizon works fine and others have used ATT.
