Name:Maui Beach Hotel
Street:170 Kaahumanu Avenue
La Verandah and her consort stayed here for three nights recently, as part of an Exploritas program on the history and culture of Hawaii. The town of Kahului is, basically, a smallish suburban town right on the beach with a community college and proximity to the Maui Ocean Center, the former whaling village of Lahaina, and the little hippie burg of Paia.
This is a moderately priced (for Hawaii) full-service, medium-sized hotel overlooking the ocean, with a pool, terrace restaurant and full bar. The place is moderately new-looking, very clean and well-maintained. The web site says it was recently renovated but doesn't say when, or when it was first built. The only style remaining of a vaguely tiki past are the main building's very high-peaked roof (which can be seen on the web site) and a nice full-length black tiki figure often draped with leis on the patio (not pictured). If possible, La Verandah will post her own pics.
