One of the highlights of our holiday in Maui was staying at Nalu Kai Lodge. It was tucked away down a lane, and such a great discovery. From the moment we entered the timber gate we felt that great, chilled holiday feeling. Every moment there after was just as good as the next. Room was spotless, with perfect, simple authentic...

I brought my husband back to island (he had never been). So, in effort to give him the complete maui experience, we stayed in several spots around island ranging from Air B&B, resorts, friends' places, camping and here. Nalu Kai was the perfect place. It was very convenient to walking around paia town, they offered free self laundry service, and...

We stayed in room #5 upstairs. Room was cramped, but perfect if you just need it for sleeping. No a/c, so it felt stuffy at times, but there's a ceiling fan and island breeze if the windows are open. Our room had a window facing Nalu Pl, so it sometimes got noisy when cars were parking or leaving. Parking is...

Our room (room 100) and beds were cramped and uncomfortable. Looked nothing like the picture on Trip Advisor. There was no air conditioning, no TV. No other furniture in the room besides the small beds. There are hotels in Kahului with much nicer rooms at the same price.

This place is perfect if u r looking for a no frills spot that is very clean. The location was perfect - right in the middle of Paia. I liked the no fuss check-in/out. The staff, though not visibly present were super helpful when emailed. I was traveling on my own & needed help with a few things & Darcy...

We stayed here and loved it, so happy to have gotten the 1 bedroom apartment with kitchen. Lately when traveling we prefer the option to make our own food. This place is walking distance to everything, beach, bar, store, coffee, yoga, kombucha - you get it. There is a super nice grill to use, with seasonings, cutting board and sink...

Cheap and within very short walking distance to shops, restaurants and beaches. The room was small but comfortable with a very good bed, also had a small fridge that came in handy. There is small but nice common area where you can relax with drinks. Would stay here again if in Paia.

I decided to book this lodge because of the cute looking rooms and the location it is. The price was also great. We stayed for only 2 nights, but it was totally worth it. The lodge is located in the middle of Paia, lots of shops and restaurants around. The beach is only a short drive away, a lovely beach...

We stayed 7 days in March of 2015. This was the perfect place for our relaxing vacation in Paia. We were in walking distance to the beaches and local restaurants. The rooms were quaint and quiet, exactly what we like. We sat out on the deck and the courtyard to read and chill with cocktails. Best of all, the price...
