Discover nanea (relaxation and repose) at The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas, which will become Maui’s newest resort when it opens in summer 2017.   The highly anticipated 390-villa resort situated on 16 oceanfront acres of North Kaanapali Beach announced that it has begun confirming reservations.

“The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas will offer guests a luxurious experience that is steeped in rich Hawaiian culture and tradition,” said Angela Nolan, area managing director, Hawaii Villas, VistanaTM Signature Experiences. “Upon its completion, a hinai (fish basket) will be featured at the center of the lobby. The hinai symbolizes both the stories of old Hawaii and the unwritten stories of our guests. We are thrilled to begin taking reservations, which kicks off the memory-making and story-writing of our guests’ Kaanapali vacations.”


To celebrate the start of bookings, The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas will offer a limited-time rate during its Cyber Sale. When booked from Nov. 18, 2016 through Dec. 4, 2016, rates will start at $625 per night (plus taxes and fees) for a two-bedroom resort-view villa for stays between July 1, 2017 and Sept. 4, 2017. This is up to a 20% discount. The reservations for this exclusive offer must be prepaid at the time of booking, are non-refundable and cannot be cancelled.

Comprised of one-, two- and three-bedroom villas, The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas is designed to be a relaxing haven replete with culturally inspired programs and distinctive Hawaiian experiences. Under the careful guidance of the resort’s director of culture, Makalapua Kanuha, Hawaiian culture has been carefully woven into design elements throughout the property. Additionally, the Puuhonua o Nanea Cultural Center will be at the resort’s heart. Its innovative and educational cultural offerings will honor local history, language, art, crafts, music and dance.

The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas’ world-class amenities will include an expansive lagoon-style swimming pool, children’s beach pool and play area, oceanfront cabanas and a WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio. Mauka Makai Restaurant (mauka: toward the mountains; makai: toward the ocean), the resort’s full-service restaurant, will pay tribute to the farming and fishing cultures of ancient Hawaii. With an emphasis on farm-to-table, Mauka Makai will utilize indigenous plants and vegetables grown on-site and from local farms to complement popular local dishes. It will also feature the Westin® brand’s signature SuperFoodsRXTM menu with nutrient-rich and delicious options to tempt every palate. Additionally, the Inu (Drink) Pool Bar will provide a relaxing setting to enjoy oceanfront views, cocktails and lighter fare. Guests will also enjoy access to resort amenities at The Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas located next door, including Spa Helani, a Heavenly Spa by Westin®.

Each of the villas at The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas will offer many of the key amenities of home, combined with signature Westin touches. The master bedrooms will include king-size signature Westin Heavenly® Beds and Westin Heavenly® Baths with showers, bathtubs and vanities. The living areas will offer armoires, queen-size sofa sleepers and private furnished lanais. Villas will also come with fully equipped kitchens and washers and dryers.
