Vacationing In Maui Can Be A Healthy Experience!

Sure you’re excited about your Maui vacation; after all, who doesn’t look forward to fun in the sun on a beautiful island surrounded by beaches and gorgeous water? If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our Maui condo rentals so you’ll have comfortable surroundings with all of the amenities you could dream of for your “downtime.” If you’re into fitness or working toward being a healthier you, your Maui vacation is a great time for that as well!

How can you become healthier while vacationing? Everything about Maui promotes wellness, from the climate and clean air to the relaxed pace and natural beauty that surrounds. In addition, there are plenty of spas where you can get pampered, acupuncture specialists, massage and nutritional therapy clinics, and of course all of those water activities to keep you fit physically – from surfing and snorkeling to paddleboarding, or just taking a walk or jog along one of our many beaches or hiking trails.

You don’t have to be a surfer or engage in scuba diving or snorkeling to get a workout on Maui. From Zumba classes to yoga classes on the beach, there’s plenty to keep you moving while having fun. Many vacation rental facilities (including our condo rentals in Maui) have fitness or workout rooms as well.

A great massage can be extremely relaxing, therapeutic, even invigorating. Whether alone, with your significant other, or with a group of friends, you can experience lomi lomi massages, deep tissue massages, and relief from stress and all those knots tied up in your body – true deep relaxation, and it’s healthy.

Nutritional therapy is offered on the island, as food has the power to strengthen and heal. Diet plays a huge role in health and the body’s ability to heal itself; it also works to improve mental well-being. Whether you already practice healthy eating or need a little nutritional therapy, you can find it while vacationing in Maui.

From fabulous spas (where you can have your face or entire body pampered, using ingredients that are locally sourced such as papaya enzyme facials or seaweed wraps), or acupuncture therapy to help unblock the meridians (energy pathways) in the body and balance Qi, there’s a huge focus on health on our wonderful island.

Vacationing is at its best when you mix it all up and enjoy some fun and sun, downtime with family or friends having a relaxing dinner or enjoying a mai tai on a sunset cruise, and indulging yourself in activities that contribute to better health. It’s all about balance!

Whether you’re traveling to Maui in October or later in the year, be sure to check out our luxurious Maui condo rentals! Tour them online so you can see how truly spectacular our accommodations are. Mahalo from the staff at Honua Kai’s Finest!

Kayaking In Maui For Those Who Love Water Activities

kayaking in maui

We talk a lot on our blog about all of the cool things there are to do on our beautiful island, but this article is geared toward those who are looking forward to kayaking in Maui and enjoying the Pacific Ocean. Maybe you’ve already booked your Maui vacation rental, and now you’re ready to learn about some of the great kayaking opportunities you can enjoy once you get here.

Since we’re located in West Maui, we’ll start there. West Maui Kayak Tours is just minutes away from our facility, and is one of the highest-rated of all businesses offering kayak tours. A guided tour that also offers snorkeling if you want to participate, you’ll paddle for about an hour and enjoy the most beautiful surroundings you’ve ever seen. Be sure to bring along a towel, waterproof camera, and sunglasses!

Maui Kayaks has a package for those who prefer not to snorkel, but to enjoy an easy paddle beginning near downtown Lahaina and traveling through Shark Pit reef. With about two hours of paddling time, this is ideal for groups of six or less, and includes the gear you’ll need, water, a snack, personal guide, and more. You may even experience the sea turtles, or come across spinner dolphins, eagle rays, or a monk seal!

Maui Ocean Sports is another great option, whether you want a guided kayaking and snorkeling eco-adventure or prefer to rent a kayak and go out on your own. If you choose the Lahaina Excursion, expect to spend 2 1/2 to 3 hours paddling, snorkeling, and taking in the beautiful scenery and ocean life. If you’re experienced and just want to rent a kayak, the daily rate for a single is $35, and a double is $60. You can also rent a kayak for a couple of hours, or by the week.

As you can see, there are plenty of opportunities for those who want to go kayaking as part of their Maui vacation experience – and these are just a few examples, there are dozens of kayaking opportunities across the island.

Have you secured your Maui condo rental yet? If not, do it now! Condos go fast, and it’s a good idea to secure your accommodations well before your scheduled trip. For the best in comfort, amenities, and spectacular beach and ocean views, choose Honua Kai Resort & Spa!

Life Is A Beach In Maui, Whether You Prefer Lively Activity Or Calm And Peaceful

At Honua Kai’s Finest, our Maui condo rentals are located in a prime location, whether you prefer the lively activity going on at Kaanapali Beach, or prefer a calmer, less busy beach where you’ll find mostly locals – Hanakao’o Beach. For most people, vacationing in Maui is (almost) all about the beach!

Once named America’s Best Beach, Kaanapali Beach offers three miles of beautiful, clear water and white sand. However, you’ll typically find lots of tourists on the beach, which means crowds. This may be right up your alley if you are visiting the island with friends or your significant other, as many people enjoy mingling with other tourists who are as excited as they are.

From scuba diving adventures to snorkeling, sailing, diving, and jet skiing to cruising on a Catamaran, you’ll find just about any activity you could imagine on Kaanapali Beach. Never a dull moment on Maui’s most popular beach!

What if you prefer a calmer, more peaceful beach experience? You may want to consider Hanakao’o Beach, also known as “canoe beach” because of the fact that it’s home to a canoe club. With a lifeguard on duty part of the time, bathrooms, showers, and lots of sea turtles, Hanakao’o Beach is where you can BBQ, go for a swim, or just relax and soak up some sun. You’ll find some locals and perhaps a few tourists, but nothing compared to the crowds at Kaanapali Beach. It’s also a great beach if you have small children, considering it’s less crowded and a smaller beach.

Hanakao’o Beach is located at the south end of Kaanapali Beach, and it isn’t far away if you’re staying in one of our Maui condo rentals. Just under 2 1/2 miles away, you can drive the distance in about four minutes. For those who are active and enjoy a good walk, you could walk to the beach in about 45 minutes to an hour.

Whatever your preference, life is a beach in Maui! Many of our luxurious condo rentals offer spectacular views of the beach and ocean, and you’ll enjoy not only supremely comfortable accommodations, but the fact that you can be at the beach in just seconds or minutes, depending on which beach you prefer. No matter what adventures you have planned, be sure to book one of our Maui vacation rentals today!
