KAANAPALI, HI (Nov. 14, 2016) — Discover nanea (relaxation and repose) at The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas, which will become Maui’s newest resort when it opens in summer 2017. The highly anticipated 390-villa resort situated on 16 oceanfront acres of North Kaanapali Beach announced that it has begun confirming reservations.
“The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas will offer guests a luxurious experience that is steeped in rich Hawaiian culture and tradition,” said Angela Nolan, area managing director, Hawaii Villas, VistanaTM Signature Experiences. “Upon its completion, a hinai (fish basket) will be featured at the center of the lobby. The hinai symbolizes both the stories of old Hawaii and the unwritten stories of our guests. We are thrilled to begin taking reservations, which kicks off the memory-making and story-writing of our guests’ Kaanapali vacations.”
