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.
How to Get There
The property is beautiful, understand there are no extras for your money. This is not a place to stay if your interested in a great food experience because there are no choices on the menu its one set meal.
The property has. o transportation for guest to and from the airport and for the price for a room you would a least expect a shuttle.
Beautiful property, gorgeous historic house. Loved to be surrounded by untouched nature. Loved the sound of the wind in the big trees. Very nice yoga teachers, relaxing vibe, relaxing classes. Overall service could improve, phone in room not working. Complimentary teas and coffee could find a better spot ( somewhere in the restaurant...) Management staff could be more pleasant. Housekeeping service was really bad,didn’t clean our room .
An amazing get away. Quite. Grounds were beautiful. Very peaceful. I didn't get to enjoy the yoga offered as much as I would have liked to. I do wish there was drinking water offered in the room. Other then that it was amazing.
the grounds, the programs, the staff...all excellent. i felt like i was leaving family when i went home :) the food is also really good and the location allows you to visit a lot of cool beaches and shops and hiking places
Nice rooms, nice and tidy property, location a bit hidden behind trees/hedges which helps to calm down and get away from everyday hustle and bustle, extensive and balanced weekly program (yoga classes, meditation, etc.), tasty food, daily changing dinner menu with 3 courses (healthy, local ingredients, often fish), breakfast buffet was good but unfortunately the same every day, lots of space to relax (e.g. pool, hammocks), but there is a lack of shadow places (no trees or umbrellas at the pool or the lawn), for the rather high room rates the service level could be a bit better
