Empress at Kaanapali

Extraordinary 11,000-Square-Foot Luxury Estate on Kaanapali Beach

The Empress at Kaanapali is an extraordinary private estate with 8 bedrooms (up to 16 guests) in a palatial retreat-like residence on famed Kaanapali Beach. The Empress encompasses more than 11,000 square feet of living space on a full acre of beachfront property, boasting a tasteful exotic Asian decor that creates a serene and calm living environment.

There are abundant amenities provided within The Empress at Kaanapali including a heated lap pool, outdoor spa, children’s pool,  central air conditioning, garden courtyard with a koi fish pond, private gym, billiard table, expansive library/study room with gas fireplace, wide screen media room, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, yoga pavilion for stretching and meditating, and outdoor dining for 16.

The Empress at Kaanapali is comprised of natural stone floors, handsome mahogany tone cabinetry, flowing streams and ponds, tropical watercolor artwork, marble floors and counters, sweeping floor to ceiling glass pocket and screen doors, and plentiful fine quality bed and bath linens. Within each bedroom is a private bath with either marble shower or large deep soaking tub and a sunning lanai or direct access outdoors to the courtyard. Each of the eight bedrooms, media room and office room are individually equipped with HD digital cable service, Blu-ray players, and large flat panel televisions with complimentary Netflix. 

The designers of The Empress at Kaanapali were inspired by its perfect orientation to the sandy beach and blue Pacific in front and graceful green mountains behind. The house was designed to highlight Maui’s beauty rather than make a statement of its own. The trade winds are welcomed through the 30-foot doors which open at both ends of the great hall. The living space is not circumscribed by walls; the living space extends naturally out towards the tropical courtyard reaching to the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. On the summer solstice the sun sets on the horizon in perfect alignment with the center axis of the villa.

Enter The Empress through its teak double doors and find your own private retreat awaiting you. Announce your arrival on the antique Chinese court gong. Enjoy a nap on the elaborately hand carved Balinese day bed. Light the abundant tropical tiki torches placed throughout the property and dine under the moonlight Hawaiian style. One of the bedroom suites has a kitchenette and private outside entrance which is perfect for a nanny, personal assistant or security staff. Empress at Kaanapali is truly a rare gem and is the perfect estate home for large families, executive board retreats, princes and princesses, or public persons seeking privacy with full hotel-style amenities.

Empress at Kaanapali is a legal hotel-zoned luxury vacation home.
