Hawaiian History

Authentic Experiences

There are endless ways to discover the magic of Maui. And while we encourage you to explore all of them, we also invite guests to join our immersive cultural activities located on-site for travelers of all ages. Discover traditions that weave together the fabric of Hawaiian heritage while creating memories to last a lifetime.

Get Cultured

Honor Pacific Island heritage by learning the art of hula or how to play the ukulele. Tradition that transcends time, these enriching experiences will remain with you beyond your stay in the islands.

Tuesdays: keiki (kids) ukulele at 9 a.m., advanced ukulele at 9:30 a.m., hula at 10 a.m.
Register in advance at the front desk.

Craft Fair

Every Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., guests of Aston Kaanapali Shores can shop our cultural arts and crafts fair, featuring handmade goods by local crafters, artisans and purveyors. Discover treasured gems and bring back a piece of Hawaii home with you for your own personal collection of keepsakes. Or gift an artisanal find to your friends and family and show them they were here with you in spirit.

Hawaiian Weaving
