Airports - OGG
The main airport on Maui, and the ONLY AIRPORT YOU SHOULD USE FROM THE MAINLAND, “Kahului Airport - OGG”. This airport handles all mainland arrivals and most inter-island flights.
Do NOT fly through the “Kapalua/West Maui Airport - JHM”. This is a small regional/executive airport, mostly serving private jets, chartered flights and local sight-seeing flights. This might be a good airport to use if you want to tour the signs by air in a fixed wing aircraft, but not for mainland flights. Flights into this airport may be twice the rate or more, than OGG.
Taxi service, private transportation and shared airport shuttle service are all available from the Kahului Airport (OGG). To make a transportation request via the hotel concierge, click here.

Enterprise car rental services are available on-site. Consider using this to either rent a car to shuttle one direction, drop at th ehotel, then rent it for the day back. OR consider using this for a day or two rental to tour around. Either way you’ll avoid the parking fees nightly. To reach the onsite Enterprise rental desk, please call (808) 669-1901 ext 7577.

Driving instructions from the Kahului Airport
**Please note that while certain GPS and mapping devices show a faster route is available by driving around Kahakaloa side of the island, the route around the north, Kahakaloa side of the island is not recommended; it is dirt and one lane at times.
For your safety, please follow the route outlined below.
Directions from Kahului Airport - OGG (all flights from the US mainland)
Please allow 45 to 60 minutes drive time (depending on the time of day)
Drive straight through the next few sets of lights crossing Pu'unene Avenue and continue to the junction of H-380 and H-30. Follow the signs to Lahaina, turning left from H-380 to H-30.
Continue driving along the winding coastline towards Lahaina and the highway will merge into the new Lahaina Bypass Road.
Continue along the bypass which turns into Keawe Street. At the stoplight, turn right onto H-30 and follow it through Ka'anapali, Napili and then Kapalua (highway signs will indicate towns).
A green road sign on the right-hand side of the highway will indicate 'Office Road, The Village Course'. Take this left-hand turn (there is no traffic light).
After turning left at the intersection you will be on ‘Office Road’. Take the first right after the Honolua Store (entrance to the hotel) onto Ritz-Carlton Drive.
Don’t forget that you’ll have three beaches, a couple snorkel shacks, pools, tennis and basket ball courts, several restaurants, and a sundries store (Honolua Store; 3 minute walk) all available nearby. The latter includes a coffee shop/bar, grab and go sandwiches, wraps, salads, gifts and even a full liquor shop. You could easily enjoy the resort area and not need transportation!
Uber/Lyft is a $20 ride to Lahaina from our resort and is a great way to get back and forth quickly. Even closer would be the Kaanapali Beach area for shopping, dinners, great beach and rock diving.
The city bus is pretty clean and reliable and has routes to both the Kaanapali and Lahaina areas for a couple dollars.
The resort has a complimentary shuttle to locations within the resort area. This is a complimentary bonus and does not run on a tight schedule. So if you’re running on ‘island time’, you’ll be great! Otherwise you may need to drive over and park if staying off property.
An Enterprise car rental desk is available onsite and is open daily. To reach our onsite Enterprise rental desk, please call (808) 669-1901 ext 7577. Enterprise rent a car is on property for those who would like to rent two, one way car rentals and drop at the property. Avoid the parking fee.
Please note that the hotel now only provides valet parking for $30 (plus tax) per day/night, with in and out privileges. This would apply to both the guests staying at the hotel and those who are staying offsite.
