Staying in a Hotel vs a Condo Post Pandemic

Kihei Beach ResortSome interesting trends are surfacing regarding how travel may change post-COVID-19. Studies indicate people are anxious to travel this summer, but likely will start slowly and stay closer to home. As much as Hawaii looks forward to tourism rebounding in the state, officials are still putting in place safe travel measures. Once travel does start taking off to the islands, it is also predicted Maui, and other Hawaiian islands will be more popular than foreign destinations.

Another thing that may shift is the type of accommodations people choose. Turns out condominiums have distinct advantages over hotels for post-pandemic travel. Here’s why:

Social Distancing

Condominiums have fewer common spaces and interior living spaces are larger than hotel rooms, meaning people have more space to themselves.


Since condominiums are individually owned, they or their management companies can direct customized cleaning and sanitation. Check ins can be done electronically. Keys are typically delivered without human interaction, with many door locks going keyless.


Since all Destination Maui condos have full kitchens, you can not only save money by cooking meals in the condo, it’s also safer. Many people still want to avoid crowds for a while, including limiting dining out. Plus there is nothing nicer than eating al fresco on your lanai overlooking the ocean.

Space and Value

In a condo, you get more space for a lower price. If you were to get a two-bedroom condo, you could split the costs with others while having the space to live independently. That includes private bathrooms and bedrooms, plus a larger living area than a hotel room.


Condos each have their own design style reflecting the island.  Rather than a couple of stock photos on a hotel room site, we show you detailed photos of each room in the condo so you can pick one that matches your taste, with no surprises.

Longer Stays

With the space and comforts of home, as well as fun amenities such as outdoor grills, pools and more, a 10-day stay or longer is quite a treat. And, you will spend a pile less than the same length of stay in a hotel, while being safer in our new COVID reality.
