Honua Kai charges a $25 resort fee per day per villa – period!
No matter what you read or whoever tells you, the Honua Kai resort fee is just $25/day per villa. I know you will read otherwise but that’s the current policy. Originally it was way more complex and Honua Kai just made it very simple – $25/day/villa.
Here’s what you get for $25/day/villa:
- Underground parking which costs $10/day/car for renters
- Daily Tidy-maid service
- Wi-Fi around the resort – even at the pool
- Pool towels
EVERY resort in Maui charges a resort fee now – everyone of them; they are ALL $25/day.
Who likes to pay additional fees? Not me; but someone has to and the resorts, around the country, have decided to break out the hidden fees, from the daily rental rates, and make it just one fee – the daily Resort Fee.
You have to be VERY careful when you compare and compute rental rates to include this into the daily rate – many rental agencies never bring up the topic and add it secretly at the end.
I can tell you that lots of folks get this wrong, so I wanted you to know the truth.
Tidy Maid Service
Included in the Resort Fee is a daily tidy maid service – just what is it? Well, the maids come in your villa once a day, for about 5-minutes, and do the following:
- Exchange towels that you leave on the bathroom floor or in the tub for new ones
- Empty the trash
- Make the bed(s) – no new linens just make the bed
That’s it folks – nothing more or less – takes them just 5 minutes.
They don’t vacuum the rugs or load the dishwasher or do the laundry or change the bedsheets or sweep the lanai or clean the mirrors or clean the stove – just the items listed above.
If you want more maid service you can call the front desk and they will quote you rates for more service.
Honua Kai is a condo-hotel and most of them don’t have heavy duty daily maid service – the villa is just too large to do any kind of cleaning in 5 minutes.
