The Maalaea Banyans are conveniently located and quietly tucked away from the crowds, noise, and traffic that plague most of Maui these days. It's also right on the water, providing excellent views. The trade winds keep it consistently cool compared to other spots. We stayed in Kihei for years until we discovered the Banyans, and we have been staying there ever since. It's the Maui experience we always wanted.
