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
Lumeria isn't like any other place I've stayed. It is such a beautiful property and it's just the right size. You can find solitude and beauty on every corner. I enjoyed the yoga classes and the 3 course prix fixe dinners at The Wooden Crate (not included in stay). It was an oasis within an oasis. Pa'ia is a wonderful little town and also a great area to explore. Everything was very close by including beaches and the airport. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet getaway and focused on wellness.
My daughter and I stayed for 2 nights post our 4 day backpacking trip up Haleakala. It was the perfection location for our needs. The retreat far excelled our expectations. We much preferred this to the highly populated tourist areas. We are from the Big Island.
From the second that I arrived at Lumeria, I felt an immediate peace and sense of well-being. Although I was there for a very short period of time, I feel like I had a connection with the property.
Mahalo for a lovely stay-cation!
The perfect small wellness get-a-way for anyone needing to re-charge and refresh. The treatments are the perfect balance of energy and body work. The beds are comfy and the food is excellent. I would recommend spending a at least a few nights here on the front or back end of your Hawaiian trip, if not the entire stay. It's easy to get to from the airport. If you don't rent a car Uber is accessible, although you might wait up to 20 minutes for them to arrive. Lumeria is also near the cute town of Paia, for shopping and meals. It is also really close to some great beaches. Super location nestled up in the hills, with a view of the ocean and lots of quiet spots to sit and reflect.
You will simply love Lumeria Maui! The property is a beautiful historic restoration that is exactly the right size for creating the very personal feel that Lumeria brings to every visitor. Whether you are interested in a quiet personal retreat, a homey setting for a multi-generational family vacation, or a setting where you can actively engage in a restorative retreat with meditation, yoga, massage, and many other skillful alternative practitioners. Make a reservation now and have a wonderful time!
