Whether you’re looking to retreat to Maui on a relaxing getaway or plan on getting amongst the fun, we’ve got a slew of accommodation options for every type of traveler. Here are the best places to stay on Maui this July.

This upscale community is surrounded by golf courses, high-end resorts, upmarket shopping centers, and fine dining. Learn more about South Maui in our 8 Reasons Why You Should Stay in Kihei post.
