Lanikeha: An Artfully Designed New Community in Ka’anapali, Maui

Lanikeha is a thoughtfully designed new residential neighborhood in West Maui spread over 110 acres in the Ahupua’a (neighborhood) of Hanakao’o in the Moku (division) of Ka’anapali, Maui.

Although this community is new, Ka’anapali has been a gathering place for centuries due to the excellent climate for farming (sunny with frequent misty rain showers) while being close to sandy beaches and coves excellent for surf, canoe paddling, and fishing. This exclusive gated community of 136 home sites is laid out over 110 acres with a clubhouse and swimming pool.

Lanikeha… Lani means “heaven” and Keha means “lofty or mighty”… apparently, Lanikeha was a name King Kahmehameha III used for one of his favorite homes in the area…

The Lanikeha Clubhouse complex is the natural gathering place in the neighborhood, with a fitness area, a game room, meeting rooms, an outdoor kitchen, and entertainment pavilion. The infinity pool and spa next to the clubhouse provide amazing views to Kaanapali Beach Resort.

Mailboxes are located at the clubhouse which creates a fun outing with the kids…

Lanikeha offers sweeping ocean vistas from old Lahaina town, across to Lana’i and over to Moloka’i. Views are such an important element at Lanikeha that roof heights and view corridors are planned in advance to ensure the lasting views.

Lanikeha is a showcase for contemporary architectural design, mixing plantation styles with updated detailing and Hawaiian modern style living. Some highlights are the indoor/outdoor showers and crafted rock work. There is a sense of design and planning in this new community that gives it that high-end, exclusive feel while still being a totally inviting neighborhood where you can imagine creating an island lifestyle for your Ohana. I love the modern wall waterfalls mixed with lush tropical gardens that can be seen throughout the neighborhood…

On this aerial map where you can see how close to the iconic Kaanapali Beach Lanikeha is…Lanikeha is actually part of Kaanapali Golf estates… owners pay a monthly fee to upkeep the Lanikeha grounds and use of the amenities as well as a fee to be a part of the Golf Estates, totaling approximately $600 a month.
