We selected the Kula Lodge due to its proximity to the Haleakala NP in order to see the sunrise. Lodge is a good description of the accomodation with no fridge or TV in the room but the spectacular view over central and western Maui more than made up for it. We stayed two nights with the middle day spent at... More

The view from the restaurant is stunning, the cottage was comfortable and very well heated - it does get very cold here. The manager was very helpful, sweet and professional. This is the best place to stay to visit the park and do the summit trip early - or late- for sunrise or sunset. The restaurant is also very good.... More

The pluses: food was generally cooked well, good drinks and quinoa beet salad was really nice The challenges: We asked for soup that never came, and when although I could have added fish with my salad, no sauce. So that was about $30 that a better server could have added to the bill. She was friendly but in a hurry... More

We picked this location with the closeness to the Haleakala National Park and descriptions on their website. We stayed one evening in one of their chalets and ate in the restaurant. The views from the restaurant are fantastic. We ordered a pizza and a couple cocktails and sat by the windows to see the views.Chalets have plenty of windows for... More

I'm not sure why we've missed this restaurant on previous trips, because the views are fabulous and the food & service were excellent. We were exploring upcountry when we happened upon the Kula Lodge and decided to try their restaurant for dinner. We enjoyed one of the best sunsets we've ever experienced on Maui, and enjoyed a delicious dinner.

The Kula Lodge is very rustic, quaint, comfortable, and roomy. There are no televisions, phones, refrigerators, or even central heating...they do supply an electric heating unit though. It's proximity to Haleakala makes it a great place to stay if you want to drive up and see the sunrise from the summit. We spent our first two nights here and found... More

I just spent 4 nights in the infamous room number 5. From the moment I arrived, things got of to a bad start. I was treated like a terrorist. This place is a restaurant which happens to offer lodging. At 170 dollars a night tax included this place is terrible. It is basically a tiny hunter's cabin right next to... More

We went up to the Kula Lodge for breakfast on Sunday. Very busy and said wait was going to be 10 to 15 minutes. Turned out longer. Food is fair but the view is fabulous. Their kitchen set up needs help. Wait staff order takers and serve and bus their own tables, so things get slowed down. If you are... More

LOVE this place! After watching the sunrise over Haleakala crater and a long bike ride down the mountain.... We always stop at Kula lodge for breakfast! Hot chocolate in Maui is the best! Great breakfast -and view!
