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.

A nice hotel well renovated and located in the heart of Paia. The hotel has a private way that will take you straight to the beach however watch out to the end of the path (no staris, a bit difficult to climb back). Staff is very helpfulf and smiling. The room itself was nice but nothing extraordinary and a bit small if you have large luggage.
On a recent trip to Maui my wife and I decided to explore Paia by spending a couple nights there vs. our typical "drive through" visit for lunch or on en-route to OGG. We could not have been happier with our decision to stay at the Paia Inn. Throughout our entire stay the hotel staff were lovely and accommodating. Upon arrival we were escorted to our room and then provided with a tour of the property. We had reserved the 1 bedroom garden view king suite which was ground level, and easily accessible. The Inn has maintained it's original colonial charm and we found the room decor and furnishings consistent with that style. It was also clean, spacious and fully appointed. There was a small semi private outdoor sitting area that came with a friendly cat who very badly wanted to visit us!. For guests of the Inn there's a gated, private walkway to the beach and given the the very few access points, the beach was nearly private and likely unknown to most tourists. Although we didn't dine there we were able to visit the on-site restaurant, Vana, for cocktails. The restaurant was bustling and the food looked outstanding. (Sushi and tapas.) We definitely will be dining there during our next visit in February. For those first timer's to Paia, the town itself is definitely worth a 2 day visit and there's no better place to stay than the Paia Inn. It's centrally located amidst art galleries, funky apparel shops, coffee shops and restaurants that should satisfy anyone. (And for sports fans there's even a new sports bar in town, a rarity on the island.) We regret not having stayed on previous trips and will be returning in 2023. And for those who arrive in Maui mid-day, I'd recommend staying in Paia your first night upon arrival. Relax, unwind, shop and dine before venturing off to Ka'anapali or Wailea with the tourist hordes.…
Stayed at the Paia Inn for the first half of our Maui Trip. We could not be happier! The Paia Inn as a first-class boutique hotel. It has a warm, welcoming staff and cottage type rooms with full amenities. It just a hop, skip and a jump to your own private beach. Chairs, towels, boogey boards are all included. It was a great from the moment we arrived. Their restaurant was within the Paia Inn and was AMAZING!
Overall we enjoyed our stay here. We wanted to be central to everything we did on the island and get more of a cultural immersive experience as opposed to a large resort and we were happy with our decision. The town is great with some easy shopping and decent food options. Make sure you try Vana which is attached to the hotel (awesome bar and sushi), Paia Bay coffee for breakfast or lunch, surf club for breakfast and coffee and of course Paia Fish Market and Mamas Fish House. If you don’t have a reservation call at 9:30 in the morning and ask if they have had cancellations. They can usually sneak you in if your not picky on the time. Hotel location is great for the Road to Hana, Haleakalā national Park and any snorkel tours over to Molokini. There’s a cute little market (Mana foods) about 3 blocks from the hotel if you need a few snacks or beverages for your room. Be sure to check it out. While the beach is not the most picturesque we also understand we’re not staying at the Four seasons. We went to other beach’s a few days but this always did the trick for a hassle free trip from our room which takes you down a cute little walkway outfitted with a ice machine, seating with fire pits, Loungers, and outdoor showers. Just be mindful of the neighbors and respect the beach. Every evening turtles would crawl up the beach right in front of the hotel. If you do plan on on swimming at this beach walk down to your left a couple hundred yards where the surf is less rough and rocks are not present. cons: our room was great, we had kitchenette and two patios but we met with 4 other guests who all complained about their room being terribly small. I would confirm with the hotel before booking. Parking is limited and they have reserved spots but that doesn’t necessarily deter the other tourists front parking there. We had a few things go missing from our room while we were out (not a huge deal) just a phone charger and some food. I’ll give the hotel the benefit of the doubt. If your wanting a beachfront view. This isn’t your place. It’s only a 100 yards from your room but it is not beachfront. Lastly, we happened to pop on the local real estate office in Paia and it appears most of some of this hotel is for sale. So if your been wanting visit and have been on the fence about this place. I would definitely say book it.…
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.
