I’m most likely going to look for a week in Kaanapali and wondering between the Westin resorts (North, south and Nanea) and the Marriott resort there which one has the best studio unit if anyone knows

Unquestionably, the WKORV ocean front center studios.

Each has a two burner stove (Marriott studios have none), a 100 sq ft lanai, and a direct ocean front view.

Vistana resorts lockout bedroom are generally an actual studio or one bedroom unit on its own. Usually with cooking capabilities. I have found that the lockout portions in MVC resorts are efficiencies or no better than a hotel room. If I were to ever book a lockout only it would be in a vistana property.

Outside of views, are the Westin studios at south north and nanea all generally comparable?

Not really. The studios at WKORVN have lanais; those at WKORV do not -- except the ocean front center and deluxe studio units.

There are no studios at Nanea.

I don’t see studios at nanea I think they just have one bedroom premium, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom units

Just to clarify: you can't buy a studio at the Westins - you can buy a 1 bdm. or a 2 bdm. The MF is disproportionately high on the 1 bdm, so the 2 bdm is a better value.

I just checked out of the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Villas Monday. Although I stayed in a 1br, I would have to go with the Westin studio. The studios had full kitchens and excellent views.

The Westin North Studios also have an in-unit washer and dryer. Very complete unit.
