The drive is harrowing, the views spectacular, the local shops a throw-back and the destination paradise. A quick visit to see friends in Lahaina allowed for a drive to Hana on the East coast of Maui. It was heaven, despite the motion sickness! Check-in was delightful, with fresh fruit juice and a warm towel waiting. Golf carts deliver you and your bags to (in our case) a charming Sea Ranch Cottage. I never wanted to leave. The cottage was airy, open, large, with small kitchen, very large bath, deck with ocean view and horses grazing on the other side of the fence. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent, although service a bit slow. Lounge entertainment was authentic Hawa'iian music performed by two gifted musicians and lovely, graceful dancers. This place puts a spell over you that's hard to shake. Our second day had us lounging as if in a coma, walking the lovely grounds, visiting the excellent art gallery and enjoying another wonderful meal. This is one of those places that takes a hold of you and you know you'll return again for a much longer visit the next time. Can't recommend it highly enough. Aloha!
