Maui, Hawaii is a tropical paradise best enjoyed when with family and friends. What better way to build beautiful memories on this luxurious island than to be with the people you love the most.
Traveling with a large party to Maui can be quite a challenge, but on the bright side, there are many advantages to it too. For instance, the biggest perk is the savings! You may think that traveling in groups can be very expensive, but you can cut the overall cost if you take advantage of group rates both in airfare and accommodations.
We know you’re excited to book a trip, so to help make things smoother for you, here are some great travel tips when going to Maui with a large group.
Choose a Maui Vacation Rental Home
If you’re a group of more than four people, you’ll definitely find savings in renting vacation homes rather than paying for multiple hotel rooms with limited amenities. Maui vacation home rentals give you and your group of companions more freedom to do activities together and wide-open living space to move around so you are given the option to find a separate area for some downtime.
If you’re browsing for a beachfront and fully furnished rental home in Maui, you don’t need to search further. Kahana Village luxury beachfront condos have a 1,200 square feet space for the 2-bedroom unit and about 1,700 square feet space for the 3-bedroom unit. You can cook, watch late-night movies, or have barbecue dinners and drinks in the lanai.
Here are some of the advantages of booking a Maui beachfront vacation home in Kahana Village:
- Fully furnished kitchen so you can cook and bring your own food
- Dining area so guests can eat together
- Separate bedrooms
- Two bathrooms

- Wide-screen television and high-speed internet
- Indoor activity areas such as the living room and lanai
- Beachfront view and quick access to the beach
- Air conditioning for indoor comfort after a fun-filled day out in the sun
- Resort amenities such as a spa, jacuzzi, and heated swimming pools
How many people can you fit in one unit? A 2-bedroom Maui vacation rental Kahana Village luxury beachfront condo unit can comfortably fit up to 6 people, while the 3-bedroom Maui vacation rental unit can fit up to 8 people. The 2-bedroom condos are located on the second floor while the larger 3-bedroom condominiums are located on the ground floor.

Join Maui Group Tours and Activities

One of the most exciting tours you can ever experience in Hawaii is the Maui Tour. You can book this tour and have a Haleakala skyline adventure in the middle of the mountains, where you can experience zip lining and crossing a hanging bridge.
If you love exploring underwater life, you can experience being inside a submarine with the Atlantis Submarine Tour. This is a 45-minute adventure underwater where you can experience being taken 100-feet below the water surface and see various schools of fish.

If you don’t feel like traveling away from your condo, there are still many things to explore and do. Every Wednesday, you’ll be treated to a free weekly Mai Tai Party at the Kahana Village compound alone. Enjoy seaside drinks, dancing, live music, hula dancing, and Mai Tais.
During the day, you can bring everyone and the kids and sign up for the special Lei Making Class held every Saturday morning, exclusively provided for Kahana Villages guests. You will learn how to make a traditional orchid flower lei in this class. Guests will be served cold drinks or coffee while enjoying the beautiful seaside view.
Within the Kahana Village compound are other resort amenities such as heated swimming pools and jacuzzis that guests can enjoy. You don’t need to sweat the small stuff because, along with the rental, you are provided with beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, and a barbecue grill.
Take Advantage of Group Travel Airfare Rates
When you pre-book your group travel to Hawaii, many airlines will provide competitive rates and help make everyone’s travel experience smoother. If you book your group flight during the off-peak season (which is usually around January to February in Maui), you may be able to enjoy an additional airfare discount.
Hawaiian Airlines, for instance, offer group travel packages for a minimum of 10 people. You can also inquire with Delta Air Lines, Alaska Airlines, Sun Country, United Airlines, and American Airlines.
When you book group tickets months before your travel, you can be given priority or guaranteed seats, earn more miles, and other perks and promos that the airline can provide.
Maui is best enjoyed when traveling with a group. Some of the many advantages of group travel include shared accommodations in rental homes, discounted airfare, shared cost on group tours, and lesser food expenses when using the kitchen amenities in the vacation home.
