We “discovered” Pali Uli 10 years ago and have visited 4 times since then, staying twice in the Cliff House and twice in the Waterfall House. For us, it is absolute paradise! We love to stay at unusual accommodations in beautiful locations. We got hooked on small inns and B&B’s when traveling in the UK almost 20 years ago and we’ve spent a lot of time searching the internet for special places when we plan vacations. We’ve stayed at some very lovely and memorable spots in Ireland, Australia, Canada, and all over the US, but Pali Uli is the best we’ve ever found.
As you turn off the road to Hana onto Door of Faith Rd heading down toward the coast and Pali Uli, you’ll wonder if you made the right turn and the further you go the more you question your directions. It’s a rural single lane road that is paved for the first quarter mile or so, but then becomes a rutted, bumpy gravel road. However, you soon come to the Pali Uli Estate and when those gates swing open, it’s like St. Peter just opened the gates of heaven to you.
There’s a great description of the Waterfall House and it’s amenities on Pali Uli website, but that and the photographs aren’t really able to convey the feeling of the place. As you walk around out by the pool or on any to the three lanais on the ocean side, you can’t see any neighbors, not even the Cliff House right next door. It is unbelievably private and so beautiful! It’s your personal piece of paradise. You will find that even though you’re in Hawaii, on Maui, with so many great things to see and do, you will not want to leave this place, even for a few hours.
A word of warning…Pali Uli is on the north shore of Maui in an undeveloped area. If you’re the type of person that enjoys staying at mega-resorts, sitting on the beach, and being served drinks by cabana boys, Pali Uli is probably not for you. However, if you enjoy privacy and natural beauty in upscale accommodations, and don’t mind mixing your own drinks, you may just fall in love with it like we did.
