Just got off the plane from Maui last night and couldn't wait to tell everyone about Travaasa. After the amazingly treacherous but beautiful road to Hana, we entered the lush vista of Travaasa Hana. We stayed in a sea ranch cottage overlooking the ocean with no ac and it was sheer heaven. The tradewinds blew through the cottage and you could smell the fragrant hawaiian flowers and hear all the exotic birds around the grounds. Both nights a powerful rain came in over the ocean and it was so cool to lay there in bed and listen to the rain and the wind. I don't know how, but everytime you gaze to the sky, there seems to be a rainbow somewhere in your line of sight. I think the Hana staff have pull with the man upstairs.
Here was our day....Get up, grind our own coffee they leave for you, enjoy on your own patio looking at the waves crash into the shore, get ready for the 7:00 yoga class, but decide to go for coffee number two and skip the yoga. Lay by the beautiful infinity pool, do a couple laps to not feel guilty about missing the yoga, have lunch in their beautiful open air restaurant overlooking Hana bay, sit at the beach bar and attend a juicing class with (I forgot her name) but the little cute redhead who inspired me to drag out my Breville when I finish this review, had couples massages that were heavenly, dressed for dinner and had complimentary (strong) mai tais at the manager's cocktail party by the art gallery and then watched Auntie Carol and the lovely ladies of the resort dance the traditional dances of Hawaii backed by a trio of talented musicians while enjoying dinner. Then back to the cottage through the sliding screen doors on the patio, to gaze at the stars and moon. So decadent, so romantic, so bucolic.
Thank you everyone at Travaasa. You are all so friendly and I wish everyone back here at home were as nice and special as you are.
