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
I was looking for a place to relax, decompress from work stress and to connect with my spirit again. I found it at Lumeria Maui. The entire atmosphere is relaxing and nurturing. The food is excellent and the massages are fantastic. The customer service of everyone I came in contact with was exemplary. I give this place five stars.
The Lumeria is a beautiful retreat with lovely grounds. Yoga and meditation classes are available and are inclusive in room cost. Breakfast is also included. This facility is on the Maui Historical Registry.
They did not clean our room!
Service at the restaurant was terrible.
The location it’s amazing even if they should put a pool in the courtyard.
The pool was full of kids crushing the place not staying in the resort.
