Where is it? Located on Maui’s secluded eastern shore at the end of the famous Road to Hana, the resort is surrounded by lush, rolling grass fields, palm tree groves and the shores of Kaihalulu Bay. With nearby access to Hamoa Beach, the bamboo forest and the Seven Sacred Pools, the legendary location has long been a retreat for generations of travelers looking to experience a Hawaiian sense of place. 

The Hotel? The experience of Hana embraces the low-key vibe of this enchanted Hawaiian destination. Travaasa delivers an unplugged atmosphere with days that are filled with coconut husking, stand-up paddleboarding, coastal trail rides and traditional throw-net fishing. Between adventures, enjoy local entertainment, coastal cuisine, award-winning spa treatments and island hospitality that is unparalleled.

The Suite? The resort’s peaceful Ocean Bungalows are set on an expansive, grassy lawn overlooking the Hana coastline, and are the first on the island to be greeted by the sun each morning. Each structure features high wood-beamed ceilings, a private lanai and an undisturbed view. The structures were originally designed to reflect plantation bungalows once common in Hana, and recently underwent a $12M restoration to incorporate custom furnishings, new local artwork and redesigned bathroom areas.

The Selling Point? Travaasa Hana, Maui offers travelers one of the last, truly-Hawaiian encounters. From the journey down the infamous Road to Hana, to the activities and accommodations, the experience brings to life the local Spirit of Aloha. 

By the Numbers: Located on 69 acres with views from each direction, the Ocean Bungalows offer an experience of having the entire island to yourself, with adventures and indulgences just outside your door.

Inside you will find 986 sq. ft. comprised of two bedrooms, two spacious travertine marble bathrooms with double sinks, walk-in rain showers and porcelain footbaths. A large seating area with oversized desk and a kitchenette complete the haven you will happily call home while staying in New York City.
