Project Description

The new Westin Nanea Ocean Villas in Ka’anapali was constructed with mindful honor of the island’s heritage and culture. The name Nanea (na-neh-ah) was chosen from the Hawaiian language; a term that translates to relaxation, leisure, and tranquility. The architectural details on the property communicate the fulness of Nanea while capturing the deep, meaningful spirit of aloha. Hina’i, a basket of stories, is a theme that can be seen throughout the resort, used to inspire and spark the sharing of experience.
