Two towers make up this hotel—the Malia Tower and the original nine-story Luana Wing that has the 1/1 units (with kitchenettes). The Hawaiian-accented rooms are clean but have ultra tiny lanais—big enough for one, and that’s about it in the main tower. Luana lanais are larger. Unlike most Ohana resorts, the showers/tubs are normal-sized (Luana tubs are smaller). There’s a tiny pool and spa sandwiched between buildings. You could never sit and relax there. The staff is very warm and welcoming.
Avoid 1/1 units that end in -01—they’re right over a busy corner. Lots of connecting rooms available. Though there are no ocean view categories, you may be able to catch a glimpse from upper floor, odd-numbered rooms in the tower. Overall, it’s an adequate choice. Rooms (286–331 sq. ft.) are $279–$329, 1/1s (510 sq. ft.) are $329–$349. Discounts available.
