We stayed at the Paia Inn after reading Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed! The staff members are all extremely friendly and helpful and Paia Inn was completely charming, in an off-beat and quirky way. I really cannot say enough about the fabulous staff. We stayed in the two bedroom ground floor suite with our two young adult sons. It was modern and clean, with super comfortable beds and nice linens and towels. The kitchen was well equipped and very clean.
We spent half of our week in Paia and half on the more dry west coast. We loved Paia for its hippy, comfortable, relaxed air with restaurants, coffee shops and Mama's Fish House. Paia Inn is in a fabulous location: It is RIGHT in the heart of Paia, but quiet and with private beach access. One of the great advantages about staying at the Paia Inn is that you can do the "must do" bike trip to the Haleakala Crater through the Maui Sunriders on Baldwin Avenue, just five minutes on foot from Paia Inn. Waking up at 3:00 a.m. and walking over to the Sunrider's store in the dark was a wonderful experience, as was the unguided bike ride down, neither of which we would have had through a pick-up/drop off tour starting from the large west coast hotels. It is also a perfect place to start from when you do the de rigueur Hana Highway trip: Also a "must do" when you are in Maui.
We ate breakfast at the Paia Inn on our last day, and wished that we had eaten there every morning, although there is a coffee house two minutes down the road by foot, on the Hana Highway just past the lights, that has breakfast burritos, great coffee and super nice hosts. Everyone seems to be happy and friendly in Paia.
- 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
