The ultimate escapist resort, this place combines classic elegance with utter seclusion. The result is a lovely, peaceful hotel that seems to be (and in fact, nearly is) in a class by itself. The hotel is set in the tiny settlement of Hana Town, a few minutes' drive from waterfalls, sacred sites and legendary beaches. While the town itself offers almost nothing in the way of shopping or dining, the hotel's restaurant and gallery are among the finest on the entire island of Maui. The units are all either suites or cottages, and are spread over 66 acres of lush tropical gardens.
Everything there was so awesome anytime I wake from fresh night sleep I think Im back at Hana and have an awesome day and great evening music at Cafe....Wish I could find work in Telecommunications (IT), cos I would most definate move there if I could find work... Even if I had to travel the whole island every day for IT as long as my home be in Hana.... Life could not be any better.
My husband and I always stay at Hotel Hana Maui when in Hana. No mystery there, they're the only game in town when it comes to a high end hotel in the East Side.
I recommend their Oceanfront Cottages, the ones with the jaccuzzi on the lanai. All day, you can hear the surf break. Rockin'!
You can also dispense with the whole valet thing since you can just drive up to your cottage when coming in from the beach or fresh from your loco moco scouting trip. (across the street).
Anyhoo, not bad. Not great, but not bad.
I abs. loved the hana hotel when I visited last summer, it was very very nice the only thing that i didnt like was there is no air condioning and there arent any fans avaliable(atlest when I went) ONLY EAT ROOM SERVICE, or from the RESTURANT ON THE PROPERTY and DEFINETLY BRING SNACKS! unbelivable cottages and wonderful staff. The beds where so very comfortable and it rained very late when I visted and the way the cottage is built makes you feel as if you are outside caught in it, extremly cool. Hana is very buggy though so if you dont like bugs dont leave your doors open. i dont really think its a great family place if your children are loud.
me and my boyfriend went there a couple of weeks ago...its perfect for couples who want to relax, get cozy, and enjoy the beauty of nature...our cottage has a ranch and ocean view...so every morning you see a spectacular and breathtaking view of the ocean and the mountains....next to its location...we also enjoy and love the food, fantastic & excellent....daily they served freshly squeezed juice and the staff are very friendly and curteous....Hana hotel is indeed a place to relax and enjoy...Heaven can't be better than this....
The Hana Maui Hotel and Spa is an amazing place to relax and pamper yourself. The staff is extremely friendly, the grounds are manicured daily and the cottages are breath taking. We stayed in an ocean front cottage which made you think you were sleeping on the ocean. The daily housekeeping was impectable (not to mention the unlimited complimentary water, hawaiian juice and sodas). The Spa really makes this place. My husband and I had several treatments and they were all fabulous! The food was great at both the hotel restaurant and the ranch but we also enjoyed the food sold by local vendors near the ball park. I highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to get away and enjoy peace. And what's all the hype with the hana highway anyways? It was a breeze, we even drove to the other side of the island one day.
Everything was just wonderful except the food. I was here on my honeymoon and my husband and I called twice to make sure our veggie requirements would not be a problem. We were assured it would not be an issue and that they would love to have us. However someone forgot to tell the chef who refused to accomodate us. My husband ended up caving and tried some fish hoping for an improvement only to be dissapointed. The fish was always overcooked and the flavor combinations were that of a chef trying way too hard. Also, you had better love beets and goat cheese or you are in trouble. As for myself, I was asked every night to order a fish dish that looked good to me and they would serve it without the fish. I wasn't even given a larger portion to make up for the missing protein. After 5 days, I was ready to go. Not worth the 1,000 a day to be treated like the plague.
It was not the same as it was the last time I visited as I learned it has changed ownership a number of times. The facilities are a bit worn though. Disappointing. But the staff is superb and the location is spectacular and the new chef in the restaurant is superb using only local organic ingredients and fish (is fish organic?) 100 lb local ahi sashimi to die for caught that very day, Wow!
We got married at the 7 pools in the national park and stayed in this hotel for a couple of days to celebrate. The lack of TV really did it's job for out honeymoon;)... It's cool they don't have nothing in the room that has a remote controll. Well, I wouldn't mind an airconditioning though. Really recommend their spa. Everything you hear about their food is true! Don't try to eat there.
The other downfall is the price tag. We had to pay 900 a day, but it certainly was worthy of it for our honey moon, although I don't plan on spending that much money for a hotel for a looong time;)
If possible, this place seems to attract more tourists than the Hasegawa General Store. It draws them in with an
assortment of souvenirs such as T shirts, hats and the like. Of course, plenty of necessities and sundries are ...
