The Whaler is an Aston resort located on the beachfront in Lahaina. Spacious rooms and suites feature private, furnished lanais and plenty of room to stretch out. One- and two-bedroom suites provide living areas with sofa beds. Usually, guests are greeted with fresh pineapple in the room. With Whaler’s Village next door, families can choose from plenty of dining options just steps away from the resort. Cane and Taro, Hula Grill and Leilani’s On The Beach are some great family-friendly eateries. Also nearby, guests can play golf at the 36-hole courses. At the resort, a beachfront swimming pool will attract children. Children receive a sand bucket and shovel as welcome gifts at check-in. Camp Kaanapali is a children’s program that runs year-round activities geared towards younger guests.

This condo hotel is wonderful. It was just made for us. It is not crowded, not noisy, mostly couples, in a good location, with easy parking. We booked just before we fly there and we had a wonderful condo. Reception has Aloha sprit staff with smiley faces. We enjoyed the peace and wonderful views from the condo, we even watch the whales many times which was wonderful. The condo was very clean, we had everything we need in the kitchen, housekeepers was cleaning well everyday. Just next the hotel, there is a shopping center and restaurant. You won’t even need a car. Mahalo from Italy Whalers :-) Aloha!
Spent five nights in Oceanfront unit 402 North and everything was wonderful. Gigantic balcony gives sweeping views to Lanai and Molokai/Black Rock with fabulous sunsets. Underground parking below building was tight but super convenient. All staff was helpful and friendly with our special needs as my 85 yr old mother needed help with scooter, washroom aids, etc. Beds were comfy and furniture good, TV controls a bit finicky and hard to work though. Overall a great and memorable experience, easy stroll to Whalers Village shops and restaurants. Pricey but worth it.
