“Expectations Exceeded”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

The property is exactly as advertised. The staff are warm and helpful. Our room was truly wonderful, beautifully decorated and clean. My boyfriend loved the AppleTV! Breakfast was amazing. The beach was steps away from our room, down a little pathway. The ocean itself is a bit cold and wavy, so we didn't really get in (we waited until we arrive at the beaches in Kihei and Wailea for some real water time). A great base to do the road to Hana and beat the crowds. An abundance of great shops, terrific restaurants (don't miss Milagros, Cafe Mambo, Paia Fish Market and Flatbread Co.), excellent coffee shops (Paia Coffee Co. just West of PI had the best in town, and we tried all of them) and one of the best health food grocery stores I've ever been too (rivaling those in L.A.), Mana Foods. Paia is a charming Bohemian town and I highly recommend it. Would definitely split my time between here and one of the resorts in West our South Maui to get the best of both worlds.

Room Tip: Splurge for one of the suites, the space is worth it

The Paia Inn is a small location with a lot of personality and a personable staff. The rooms are quiet, comfortable, and have a personality of their own. We've been to Hawaii several times and were looking for a night away from the resort crowds. The Paia Inn was an experience above and beyond what we would have expected. We have stayed in a lot of nice places but this was by far our best. If you are looking for comfort and individualized attention, this is the place to stay. We will be staying at the Paia Inn on all future trips.

Room was very clean, good size and nicely furnished. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Beach out the back was beautiful and town is very cool. A short drive to Mama's Fish House, a great place for dinner.

Room Tip: Had a Jr suite (Rm 6)

I was trepidatious initially, coming from the 4 seasons, to this little inn. However, once I arrived in the town of Paia, I was instantly set at ease! This place was amazing. So the downsides first: on a busy street (Hana Hwy), and next to a gas station, which inconveniently a gas odor will occasionally waft over to the hotel. The pros: adorable rooms, GREAT value, FREE/fast Internet (unlike the 4 Seasons I might add), a gorgeous beach with access to a long2-3 mile stretch of beach-- including the most beautiful turqouise waters and really fun/big waves for surfing/swimming etc. I'd say that Paia is more for the adventurous traveller.

The town is a little hippy-ish meets wealth-- there is "lululemon" store just a few feet from perhaps the best organic/co-op grocery store I've been to. The restaurants have great fare-- lots of locally grown, organic health options at a good price. The breakfast at the hotel is delicious.

In general, this is a great inn in a great town! Definitely would come back here, especially if traveling with people that like to hike/swim/surf. This is not the place for you if you want to lay on a beach chair and snap your fingers for a waiter to bring you chair-side cocktails, but if you love beautiful beaches, not too crowded or very developed town in a great-value cozy inn, this is your place.

We have, once again, booked at the Paia Inn in Maui...our little slice of paradise! My hubby and I were often on our own whiling away the hours basking in the sun and surf and reading our favourite books on the Inn's pristine private beach. The breakfast area is cute and cozy and the service extraordinary! The lovely energetic young ladies are a pleasure to deal with and the place is kept in immaculate condition. We honestly could not have asked for more! This will be our fourth visit with hopefully, many more to follow! If you are in season (the end of December was lucky for us) book the whale watching tour as it was absolutely spectacular...several humpbacks breached next to our boat and we saw calves and dolphins as well! Also, try Charley's (across from the hotel) great burgers and entertainment by local bands...we were extremely fortunate in spending New Year's Eve 2009 with Willie Nelson and his son Lukas...spent several hours grooving to the music...hardly able to believe how fortunate we were! We can hardly wait to return and this year, we are planning to learn how to surf!

Room Tip: We were fine with a standard room...not noisy at all!

This is a fantastic property in a fantastic town.
If you don't mind small rooms the real value is in the petite room. It's tiny but all you'll be doing in there is sleeping and showering.

We stayed here last year for 5 days during Christmas vacation and loved it! We stayed in the junior suite. It was a little small, but cozy and comfortable as ever. Really felt like we were at home. The breakfast spread was delicious. The staff was wonderful. I went with my boyfriend and his family, we shared the junior suite and the family had the larger suite. Really enjoyed all the amenities, everything was provided, from iHome station in rooms, to shampoo, conitioner, and body wash, in the bathroom, which smells delicious (wish I could find it again)!!! The beach is a 5 minute walk away. Very convenient. You can walk around the small city in about 15 minutes. Very cool restaurants nearby, boutiques are very fun and none of them too expensive, so that made shopping fun since it was affordable. Very quiet city-no hustle and bustle, no traffic, very safe, very relaxing. When we go back to Hawaii I will definitely stay here again! Great job team keep up the good work!

Room Tip: Choose a large room if youre more than one person, the smaller suites are basically a room and bathr...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The postcard perfection of Maui’s North Shore (white sand beaches, raging waterfalls, stylish cafes, and world-class surfers) just got even better with the opening of the Paia Inn. This beach town boutique hotel seamlessly blends modern amenities with the historic character of its building. In a nod to the town’s plantation trade days, the building’s exterior has retained its charm with tin rooftops and rustic hues; yet, the interior mixes contemporary island furnishings with the chic lushness of the W Hotel. ... more   less
