We rented the Grand Villa for a week long stay for a family of 7 (ranging from ages 4 to 80) and can't even begin to say how AMAZING it was. The views and locations were like none other on Maui - we could see both coasts, and the sunset every night was fantastic. Likes any home, there were some... More

We stayed at the "cottage" the middle house of the three options of varying sizes available. Four people in our party, two adults, and two children (8 and 9). The cottage was amazingly comfortable with everything you would need for an extended or short stay. Everyone was super relaxed and friendly. Waking up to the view and the birds singing... More

Beautiful view, furnishings,comfortable sleeping, on site spa was wonderful. The lessons on Aromatherapy were great and the availability of diffusers and oils very special. Love the upcountry area of Maui and all it has to offer! We feel blessed to have found and stayed at this location .

We stayed in the Octogon lodge. The grounds are amazing and it is fun walking around smelling all of the plants which you are encouraged to do. We just went for the location and the views and were not interested in the aromatherapy and I get a feeling like half of the people are the same. Not only do you... More

This place probably had one of the most spectacular views we have ever seen. We stayed at the octagon studio and we could see the mountains,trees,oceans, sun..all at the same time!! Sunset was so pretty as well! PROS: (1) view (2) peaceful environment (3) star gazing at night since it gets really dark! (4) Private pool/hot tub (5) sometimes you... More

My partner and I chose the Romantic Cottage for our stay in Maui and unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations at all. Things didn't start off particularly well when we arrived to find no one waiting for us. We'd followed the instructions to call once leaving the airport but received no answer after several tries and SMS messages. After... More

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
