Anyone who thinks that Aloha wear has to be cheesy should stop by this store for an outlook adjustment. Beautiful batik prints and striking silver jewelry adorn the mannequins and the shelves. The clothes are made in Bali for the most part, out of natural rayon made from tree fiber. The clothes are perfect for the tropics: the bright colors go along with the sunny atmosphere, while the unique fabric allows the air to circulate and cool off the wearer. Two seven-foot-tall wooden cats guard the store from one side, while two equally tall giraffes man the door on the other side. These interesting carved creatures also hail from Bali; yes, they are for sale, and yes, they are expensive.
If you visit Maui - go into Serendipity. You won't be disappointed - at least we weren't! I bought my husband a fabulous shirt there the first time I went in. Then, when I had more time, I went back and got myself a couple of outfits. The clothes are AWESOME!! Very wearable where ever you live. The sales associates were wonderful too - full of aloha and very approachable. You really shouldn't miss this store if you intend to do any shopping at all on Maui because this really isn't any run of the mill boutique! :)
I frequent this store whenever I am on Maui at least once a year for the Past 11yrs, I always have to rush in and see whats new there are always new fabrics and designs to choose from if you want something unique and classy to take home with you, you owe it to yourself to shop here. Customer service is the best the gals who work here are terrific. Thanks Ladies! I always come in looking for the julie vest.

My family and I have been shopping at all the Serendipity stores for many many years. We have always found the staff and merchandise to be exemplary. We have NO hesitation in recommending the Serendipity stores to all island visitors. Kudos to Serendipity for making Maui a more interesting place to shop :)
\"Washable\" Clothes Shrink - Merchant Denies Problem
By A Yahoo Contributor, 10/25/07
I spent at least $1500 in the Lahaina shop in 2 trips to Maui, and a friend bought an $800 necklace. We own timeshare on Maui, so they know I'm a repeat customer. The first time I washed their "washable" items, I did it on gentle cycle, cold/cold, line dry. All 5 items shrank so much they are unwearable. The manager was initially very responsive and voluteered the information that some lots of fabric had not been pre-shrunk. She also admitted that the despite the care label, the clothes really do need to be dry cleaned. She told me to return everything and she would replace or refund. I did, and now this same manager denies that the clothese have shrunk. I suppose I imagined losing 6 or 8 inches in length off the dress, tops that hit my waist instead of my hips, a tunic that I can't even wriggle into, and a skirt that looks like someone cut it apart and took out 1/3 of the fabric. All 5 items total less than $400. All I want is replacements, not even refund, and I have said I will be happy to dry clean all their clothes going forward. I just want to be made whole on these items that I got surprised on, and she is denying that there is a problem, and is willing to lose a customer that has already spent quite a bit of money there and is a guaranteed source or repeat and referral business. I have seldom encountered a more irresponsible merchant. Buyer beware!!!
When my husband and I went to Maui to be married we went without wedding attire hoping to find just the perfect wardrobe once we were there. I found the most beautiful outfit at Serendipity. The people were wonderful and I've never forgotten that place. It was four years ago and I'm searching the net now just to find something fun to buy!
Our daughter is getting married in Figi and I want to be shopping at Serendipty in Kihei. Just beautiful clothes made with quality at a fair value. Lots of flowey beach attire that you feel pretty in.
Among a line-up of typical Hawaiian clothing, this store was a respite. I found a gorgeous, long black dress that seemed to have been made just for me. Serendipity has personable staff,unique offerings and very reasonable prices. I wish that the store would restore its web site.
Walking into Serendipity is finding a place where the feeling of Maui is eloquently epressed in the textiles and designs of the clothing. The fabrics are cool and flowing, the lines are graceful and unrestricting and the colors and patterns are reflectons of all the beautiful and exotic colors and contrasts to be found in the many different moods of Maui. As a retired dressmaker I appreciated the fine quality of the workmanship and careful finishing details. Most importently the full line of sizes meant finding everything did come in my size.I enjoyed courteous and helpful assisstance-Audrey's very expert advice was most welcome. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
