08 Feb Shopper’s Paradise
Mix world class shopping with beautiful white sand beaches, add a dash of fun and you have the ingredients for a premier ocean front shopping destination, day or night, at Whaler’s Village, located in the heart of Kaanapali Beach Resort.
If Whaler’s Village could be given a rating, it would have to be five ginger leis. A plethora of fine shops and great dining coax you to step across their thresholds at this stellar complex that even features a whale museum (a nod to Lahaina’s storied past).
With over 90 temptations in one open air mall, you are bound to find everything from a little trinket to fine art to remember your warm, sun-drenched days on Maui. Visit shops offering cool, casual and original clothing designs that can take you from sun up to sun down. But don’t stop there, gracious island living can be found from purveyors of fine koa gifts and furnishings to the many island-style prints and other artwork waiting to be matted and framed to your specifications.
A short shuttle ride takes you to Fairway Shops, a unique retail complex where you can chat with experts about real estate opportunities on Maui, including a discussion about owning your dream Kaanapali resort condo. This is also where you will find a popular deli that’s known for its comfort food and great prices plus a zipline outfitter that can set you up for what could easily be the high point of your visit. Fairway Shops’ eclectic tenant mix of nearly 20 shops, services and eateries definitely enhance your Kaanapali shopping adventure.
Just another day in Paradise? Not if you’re in sun-drenched Kaanapali, a three mile stretch of sand and surf touted as one of America’s best beaches and a former retreat for Hawaiian royalty. Upscale hotels like Westin, Hyatt and Sheraton plus condo resorts such as The Whaler and Kaanapali Alii sit on prime real estate and, alongside them, local favorites the Royal Lahaina and Kaanapali Beach Hotel. Conveniently, all Kaanapali hotels provide ample shopping diversions.
These many shopping experiences are all connected through a shuttle service that can take you throughout the resort and into historic Lahaina Town. Front Street, the main thoroughfare in Lahaina, boasts many fine shops, restaurants and galleries.
As the world of shopping goes, Kaanapali Beach Resort, is definitely your oyster.
