Paia Inn is located in a beach town on the stunning north shore. This Small Sensitively-Designed Inn integrates modern amenities with historic Hawaiian character. In a nod to the town’s plantation days, the building’s exterior has retained its rustic charm with tin rooftops and understated hues, yet the interior mixes contemporary island furnishings with a chic lushness begging you to unwind and unplug. Matte charcoal concrete floors highlight designer furniture collected from Asia, while rooms feature organic botanical amenities and luxe furnishings.

I stayed at the Paia Inn two nights at either end of a nearby yoga retreat. As a solo traveler I found it welcoming and felt safe. Upgraded my room to a king garden suite and glad I did. It was quiet and roomy with a full kitchen that included an expresso machine. Up early to watch the sunrise at both overnight stays with my expresso and in my PJ’s- no one at the end of the path to the beach. Appreciated onsite parking as well. Beach access to Baldwin beach was over a few rocks. The area under the banyan tree was relaxing. I parked and did not move it until I departed the next day. Two fabulous sushi dinners at Vana Paia too.
The Inn is every positive thing that others have written in their reviews. I will not repeat that. Extra Charges - We stayed there two nights early in May. We made our reservation through Booking.com because we were on a last minute trip. After we got home we received our email receipt and noticed it cost about $60 more per night than we were quoted on Booking. Not a big deal, but it already is expensive. The extra charges were for "amenities", not sure what those were, maybe the coffee and tea in the common room or towels on the beach chairs. The second charge were described, when we asked by email, as something charged in addition to the Booking rates. No other explanation. Just so you know. We regret we did not book direct, but had a flight cancellation and had to come up with a place to stay in two hours. Other minor issues were that I went out of the building to the beach area at 7:00 AM and could not get back into the building at 7:30 AM because the second exterior door was locked and our exterior door key did not open it. There is a building door and an outer fence door. I had to call my wife to come down to get back in. We were not given a tour of building to explain access. As others have said, the water temperature in the shower is erratic at best and there is one, small garbage can in the room, in the bathroom and it was small. Minor issues, but annoying. Have a great vacation.…
Friendly staff. Cute boutique hotel but smallest and most expensive place we stayed in our 15 days in Hawaii, including stays at Hilton's Hawaiian Village on Waikiki Beach, Sheraton Kauai Resort, and a beautifully appointed full condo in Kihei. Inside of hotel and room was very clean, but grounds were messy. Needed some sweeping, raking. 5 gallon buckets maybe could be stored in a shed rather than in the corner of the outdoor eating/sitting area. Nice beach and we appreciated the beach chairs being available. Lots of little outdoor spaces to relax. Rooftop could be adorable, but many lights were out, scattered seating with one small bar in the corner and one worn table. Nice flower pots though nothing planted in them with the exception of the one with a beer can stuffed into the dirt! Not the best value for our money but we got a lot of laughs out of the idea of my husband sleeping with his toes in the sink!…
Pizza is excellent. Good variety and selection of toppings. We chose take out service. It was ready on pick-up time, hot, and delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant for good food and nice atmosphere.
Quiet, peaceful unit near the shoreline. The beach had huge waves with lots of surfers on the day I arrived. Otherwise, fairly swimmable. Restaurants and cafes to recommend - Paia Bay Coffee for breakfast, Mambo Cafe for crispy duck fajitas at lunch, Cafe des Amis for dinner. The Vana restaurant on the premises is pretty good.
One night stay after flight in and before settling into a condo. Very fun small place in the coolest town in Maui. Best part was open workspace upstairs you could get up early and work or relax while not disturbing your roommate. Will certainly be back at least 2 nights next time.
After accommodating our family with last minute reservations, we had a very enjoyable experience staying at the Paia Inn. It was spectacularly clean with very pleasant and welcoming staff. Highly recommended!
Pros- beach access Cons- private stamp sized access with rocks and rough surf, swim at your risk Pros- in town Cons- loud street, loud restaurant, paper thin walls Pros- on-site parking Cons- 3 spaces, tight fit, and never open Pros- restaurent Cons- closed Pros-suite with kitchen Cons- leftover food, share your time with ants Pros- staff on-site Cons- unhelpful, spend their time in front of mirror or computer
The bed was superb. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Five minutes' walk from our room brought us to a beach patio and then to a great beach itself, with surfers, sand and sea turtles sleeping. A number of places to eat and shops were just feet away from the hotel, and it rests on the entrance to the road to Hana. We were more than comfortable here and highly recommend it.
Talk about a wonderful boutique hotel in Paia! We stayed in the Garden View Suite - it was absolutely gorgeous & relaxing! Beautiful ocean/beach access. Paia was our last stop in Maui after the Road to Hana. We were so sad as we realized 1 day wasn't enough at the Paia Inn. We wish we could of stayed longer! The fire pits were great during the night hours if you wanted to relax with a glass of wine with your hubby! The rooms had everything for a travelers need - including beach towels! The staff every took you to your room & showed you around -- Bonus Points!
