Overview

Blissed-out educational retreat on a restored 1909 estate overlooking Maui's North Shore, with a saltwater pool and organic gardens

The Lowdown

For serenity amid tropical splendor, it’s difficult to beat Maui’s north shore. And set above the Pacific in a lovingly restored 1909 estate on six manicured acres, the 24-room Lumeria Maui, an educational adventure retreat, is focused on bringing that tranquility to its guests at every turn with classes, programs and elegant accommodations. In sync with Mother Nature, you’ll find natural wood, stone and metals with decor from around the world under soaring 12-foot ceilings. Get your blood pumping on a surf outing, and then recover with a meditation session, a dip in the saltwater pool or a massage in your suite. These luxe digs are surrounded by beautiful—and edible—gardens (used in the onsite gourmet farm-to-table MuBu Restaurant), yet they’re just minutes from the historic town of Paia and Maui’s legendary north shore surfing spots.

In the Area

Tour nearby Ali‘i Kula Lavender Farm, where the calming purple flowers are grown and turned into a variety of culinary items and toiletries. Head to Ulupalakua, where Tedeschi Vineyards produces wine from both grapes and Maui-grown pineapples. Hike an evergreen forest more reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest than a tropical island, at Polipoli Springs State Recreation Area. The artsy town of Paia is home to art galleries and plenty of dining options. Start your day with pastries from Anthony’s Coffee Company, head to the Flatbread Company for some awesome pizza (with excellent gluten-free options), or grab dessert at the Ono Gelato Company. Stop at the Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center to check out the latest exhibit and see inside the historic estate of Kaluanui.

Serene Upcountry Stay

This property is so serene and beautiful. The energy here is so calm, clean and inviting. I loved all the crystals and statues around the property. It is well maintained and furnished. The staff is exceptional. I will definitely be returning and recommending to friends and family.

Lumeria review

Reviewed above. The service was impeccable. Everyone had the mahalo attitude and each worker had a very welcoming demeanor. Even the geckos appeared to enjoy themselves! The guests were all pleasant and the facilities were beautiful and the setting most tranquil.

Nice relaxing spot; a little overpriced for what it is

Beautiful property with sweeping views of the island and a nice escape from the hubbub of Paia. It's only a short drive to various beaches and a great jumping-off point to explore the uplands. We enjoyed the peaceful grounds, saline pool, yoga classes, and dinner. However, there were a few shortcomings, including small rooms that don't get very dark at night, thin walls through which you can hear everything, and a disappointingly bland breakfast.
