Travaasa Hana, Maui
What We Love
- Hamoa Beach, one of the most beautiful on Maui
- Elegant dining on fresh local fish, fruit, vegetables and beef
- Chef Barry Villiarimo, who was born and raised in Hana, incorporates taro, breadfruit, sweet potato, coconut milk and fern shoots in his preparations
- Understated spa with skilled therapists
- Laundry facilities; if you love the outdoors, you also want the ability to wash your workout gear
- Inquire about activities; even if they don’t advertise one you like, they can probably help you anyway

How to Get There
We spent 2 nights here, and took full advantage of their activities. We did yoga and guided meditation in the morning, slack-lining, horseback riding, and smoothie time. Due to a scheduling conflict with the instructor for the hula lesson, the activities person offered us our very own ukulele lesson. He was flexible with us and a great teacher. We also took advantage of the pool (of course!), and the 3-hole putt-putt golf course. Our view of the ocean was amazing. There's a firepit that's lit up at night. We got a s'mores kit from the gift shop, and it lasted us both nights. There's no tv, but we didn't notice. This was a place for us to relax, unwind, and unplug. There's nothing to do in Hana at night, and that's the beauty of it. The sky was full of stars, and simply gazing up at them was our activity. This is walking distance to food trucks and a couple of other restaurants.
I don't think this hotel has a/c, but it was cool when we were there. There are 2 ceiling fans, and large screen doors for air flow.
The staff was absolutely wonderful. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat, and was sad to leave.
The staff was great. Selma, Jordan, Kai, The girls from housekeeping and Rory were awesome. The room was great. We had our own waterfall. Easy 5 minute walk to the beach. Located in the perfect spot. 24 hour pool absolutely fabulous.
While there may be other B&Bs in Hana, this is the ONLY resort-type accommodation you'll find there. It's a former ranch turned resort, so it's very spacious and peaceful. It's a non-tipping resort, so no one is constantly nickel-and-diming you for extra payment. The service is outstanding! The parking is complimentary and valet. There are plenty of dining options in walking distance; don't bother with the shuttle when they tell you something is only a five-minute walk away. Rooms are a bit dated - there's no AC, there's an ant problem, drains clog easily - but they're spacious and otherwise comfortable with a kitchenette and plenty of bottled water and delicious banana bread upon arrival. There are two pools, one overlooking the ocean, and a hot tub. The grounds has a PT circuit and tennis court and offers other activities (at extra cost) such as SUP, yoga, etc. Great stay after the long drive to Hana before making the return trip.
We stayed at Travaasa for 2 nights to have more time in Hana. The room was spacious and comfortable. The grounds were immaculate. We had the pool, the hot tub ( with amazing views) and the well equipped game room ( ping pong, pool, giant connect four, foosball, lawn croquet) all too ourselves, and enjoyed each immensely. It was a short walk to an array of food trucks and the only small markets in town. We’re now staying in Kaanapali, and missing the peace and tranquillity we had at Travaasa. We’d definitely stay here again!
We just spent two magical nights at the Travaasa Hana. The resort is situated on an incredible piece of property with vistas of green grass, lush vegetation and the blue Pacific. At check in, we opted to upgrade from our garden view room - spacious, but backing up to the road, thus no sound of ocean - to ocean view bungalow, well worth the additional cost. Our room offered great water and lawn views accompanied by the rhythmic sound of the waves.
We ate dinner both nights at the hotel. Food was good enough. Spa is very nice. If you book a treatment, you have use of the steam room, cold plunge pool and outdoor jacuzzi.
