Where to Find the Best Budget Hotels in Kihei

It’s all about location when looking for the best budget Kihei lodging. While Kihei is a sprawling place, most of the shops, restaurants, beaches, and hotels (such as the Aston Maui Lu Hotel) are situated along South Kihei Road, and walking is the best way to get around. For day trips, rent a car and take advantage of free parking at the strip malls. Those looking for budget hotels in Kihei for work trips should check out the condos in the area, such as the Kihei Surfside Resort - Maui, which offers cheap accommodation and is close to several championship golf courses.

Affordable Airport Transfers in Kihei

Kahului Airport is the area’s main airport and is accessible by car, shuttle, bus, or taxi. For an affordable way to reach Kihei, consider booking a shuttle service in advance online. There are also hop-on shuttle services at the airport that don’t require pre-booking, but these may cost you more. Airport hotels tend to be pricier than other budget accommodations in Kihei, although there are hostels in Wailuku, such as Hostel City Maui, where you can book cheap beds.

Cheap Things to See and Do in Kihei

Enjoying an affordable family holiday in Kihei is easy, and the area offers plenty to see and do. For a cheap day out, head for the beach; read a bestseller on Makena Beach, known locally as 'Big Beach,' or try your hand at snorkeling or watersports on Kamaole Beach. Spend a morning at Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, where you can see a variety of endangered birds, head for a resort luau with traditional Polynesian music and dancing, or take a whale-watching trip. There are plenty of resources online, including the Visit Maui website, where you can find inspiration for your break.

A Little Luxury for Less in Kihei

If the idea of a luxury stay at a budget price in Kihei floats your boat, it's well worth checking out last-minute deals or booking off-season to get more for your money. Resorts such as the Maui Kamaole - with its spa tubs, tennis courts, and lush tropical grounds - or the Aston at the Maui Banyan often have last-minute availability and let you enjoy a luxurious stay for a lot less.

Timing Your Trip to Kihei, Hawaii

When booking your trip to Kihei, try to travel outside peak season for the best deals. It’s often cheaper to book less popular resorts and hotels last minute, and prices are lowest from mid-August to early December. The weather during the winter averages around 82 degrees Fahrenheit, and Kihei is the hottest part of Maui, with relatively little rainfall compared to other parts of the island. You can enjoy greatly reduced rates at hotels such as the Maui Banyan Vacation Club and CRH Sugar Beach Resort by booking just a few weeks before travel.
