Guests arriving early or departing late in the day will not be left in limbo anymore at the Honua Kai, which has introduced the Aloha Lounge.

The lounge at the resort on Maui's Kaanapali Beach offers guests a place to store their bags while they enjoy the beach, pool and other property amenities.

Located in the resort's Hokulani Building, the new lounge boasts indoor and outdoor seating areas, a children's play area and complimentary snacks, towels and chairs. The Aloha Lounge is open daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

"From the moment guests arrive on property to the minute they depart, we want them to feel surrounded by true Aloha spirit," Claudio Andrade, general manager for Honua Kai Resort an Spa, said in a release. "Our new Aloha Lounge was created to allow guests to soak in as much island time as possible. Whether they arrive prior to check-in or wish to extend their final day a few extra hours, the lounge welcomes guests to sit, stay and play."

The Aloha Lounge is exclusively offered to guests with reservations booked directly through the resort. For more information visit
