Description

In the shadow of the huge volcano Haleakala, and set among a wonderland of rainforest, moss and bright orange lilima blossoms, Travaasa Hana (formerly Hana Maui) more than most resorts in Hawaii has managed to retain a feeling of unspoiled paradise. The moment you arrive, you will be given a cool scented towel and a glass of fresh fruit juice to welcome you.

The accommodation comprises 47 oceanfront Sea Ranch and Bay View cottages, with sliding glass doors to your own private sit-out lanai where you can contemplate the breathtaking Pacific Ocean views. These vaulted wooden houses are restricted to adults, and are decorated in vintage Hawaiian plantation style, with plush feather beds, authentic kapa-print fabric furnishings, Hawaiian artwork and bamboo floors. A hot soaking tub and an enclosed garden off the modern bathroom, along with complimentary mini-bar, further add to the opportunities for relaxation. Ceiling fans rather than air conditioning waft the trade winds through to keep you cool, and there are no TVs to interfere with the sounds of the surf – a signal to slow down and forget your worldly cares.

There are also 23 Garden View cottages, set back among the lush palm-filled gardens, and more suitable for families. These are similar in size, and have an indoor seating area, one or two beds and a shared outdoor patio. For complete privacy, a turn-of-the-century Plantation House has two bedrooms and is a ten-minute walk from the hotel's main building, and provides the consummate Hawaiian experience.

The menu at Travaasa Hana’s Ka'uiki restaurant changes daily and features organic, locally sourced fruits, vegetables, seafood and meat, serving traditional Hawaiian specialties such as fern shoot salad, and fish smoked with guava and mango wood or served with sweet potato and a ginger lime coconut sauce. In the evenings, the Paniolo bar plays host to local musicians, overlooking the bay.

Spend your days relaxing by one of three pools, a heated wellness pool (with hot tub) on the Sea View Cottage side of the property, a garden pool and the lava rock whirlpool at the wonderful spa, where you can pamper yourself with a range of healing treatments, or take the shuttle to Hamoa Beach, a perfect crescent of sand regularly featured among the world’s best.

Activities range from yoga classes, snorkeling, throw net fishing, archery, authentic Hawaiian pursuits such as lei making, learning to play the ukulele, and some fantastic coastal walks. And if you like horse riding, taking a trail ride with the local Hawaiian cowboys is an experience you are unlikely to forget.
