The grand villa was beautiful.. We had a large group ranging from 17-90 years old and everyone enjoyed themselves.. The grounds were beautiful, wonderful aroma coming from all the beautiful plants and flowers.. We had great views from every room in the house.. Tom and the rest of the staff were just great and welcoming.. If you get a chance... More

My wife and I spent a fantastic 3 nights in the Octagon suite. I am sure most other reviews have captured much of what there is to say so I will be somewhat brief: - Octagon Suite is small, full of character and private. We loved it. - small kitchenette inside (nicely divided from bedroom) with BBQ outside - I... More

Some friends and I traveled to Maui from the East Coast and spent four nights in the Grand Villa. Doreena, the rest of the staff, and the accommodations made this a trip of a lifetime! Everything was perfect from the gorgeous views to the luxurious linens on the beds. We spent every evening in the hot tub and enjoyed the... More

We rented the main house with another couple. My goodness what an amazing experience! The living space and views were spectacular. The kitchen was well equipped. The swimming pool and outdoor deck and patio were all put to good use. If ever we return to Maui the Aromatherapy Foundation will be our first choice -- especially if we are vacationing... More

The foundation offers a setting of such grand beauty that I felt open for renewal. I returned home feeling like I had been filled with beauty and serenity. The view was one of the best I've ever seen, it had everything--the foliage on the property of the Foundation, the pool, the bucolic scene of the pasture, the other side of... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Romantic Cottage, the grounds and view are beautiful. Everyone was extremely accommodating and professional. The drive to the beach isn't that far and returning here after exploring Maui is so relaxing. The spa treatment was one of the best I have had. I would definitely make a return trip!

I recently returned from a 5 day women's retreat at this truly beautiful and peaceful place. I and 9 others stayed in the Grand Villa which was a lovely facility with incredible views and truly beautiful grounds. The view was wonderful during the day, but also awesome at night. The number of stars you could see was amazing! I also... More

Just returned from 5 magical days at the aromatherapy foundation. I stayed in the grand villa with 10 other women. More like a VBRO than a hotel. Lots of privacy and I almost felt like it was my home. Doreen and Tom were great. The spa was wonderful. The views unbelievable. We had a cook come in for dinners and... More

We stayed for a week in November and had a wonderful stay in the cottage. The cottage was nicely furnished, clean, and has spectacular mountain views on both floors with deck areas also. Access to the outdoor pool and hot tub is also a huge plus after a long day of exploration. We awoke each morning to birds singing and... More

This place is amazing! My husband and I stayed in the octagon house for our anniversary trip. The original drive up at night was a bit unnerving but once we got there we were super excited. The smell of the place is fantastic! All of those fresh sents were wonderful. The view from the cottage was absolutely breathe taking! I... More
