I've allowed myself some time to reflect on our experience, hoping to find something positive to say. This is it, view from front porch of Thai hale cottage was pretty, if a bit boring. That said, I regretted my choice as soon as we turned off the Hana highway and began the bone jarring journey downhill, literally and figuratively. After... More

Highly recommended if you are looking for a green, quiet, and awesome place to spend quality time. We came back for a second time and still loved it. Although staying in the middle of a green oasis the location offers a great ocean view and every thing you need to look after your self, such as by attending yoga classes... More

What a gem on Maui. If you truly believe in sustainability, eco-friendly, and want to really immerse yourself in nature away from any noise or stress this is the place to do just that. Coming from New York City to the Maui Eco Retreat was an extreme environment shift and it was so beneficial mentally and physically. I also learned... More

We stayed here for almost a week and we love this beautiful place. It's like staying in paradise. The nature; rainforest, steep cliffs, beach is fantastic. There are nice trails for hiking in front of your door. The quietness is perfect for relaxing. The Bamboo-Temple with its panoramic window is great, you can enjoy the sunrise out of your bed....

Stayed here and it was heaven. Maui at it's best. Amazing trails, hike down to the lagoon, 20-30 minutes from great dining and beaches. Awesome ocean views. The outdoor shower was the best. We could cook in our room and relax on our deck with our morning coffee- peace and quiet and Maui beauty. Wifi at the main house worked... More

This is our 3rd night at the Maui Eco Retreat. After 2 days of hustling and bustling, we stayed put at the retreat today with 2 friends who live in Maui but had never been here. We hiked down to the ocean and experienced the North Shore surf in complete isolation. It felt like we were the only ones who... More

Very unique property with clean accommodation and well kept grounds & buildings. Spectacular views and breathtaking private waterfall, suitable for adventurous spirits. We had the good fortune of meeting several other guests and volunteers who shared our fondness for socializing around a campfire at night. Will definitely be back at the earliest opportunity.

There we stayed for a whole week and enjoyed the silence, the nature, the view to the sea - it's a location nearby - or in - the rainforest of Maui - not a hotel with liveried attendants but a amazing location to sort oneself out.

Thai Hale cottage, where we spent five days, is as lovely as it gets. The web site description and photos are spot on and sum it up very well. Isolated at the end of a dirt road, set on a cliff overlooking the ocean, jungle surroundings, tropical rain showers, trade winds, waterfalls, and bird song. The cottage is made entirely... More

Our stay at Maui Eco Retreat was by far the best place we have ever stayed at! Everyone was so kind and the surrounding energy was welcoming, love, and peace. Our favorite was how quite and peaceful it was, at night gazing at the stars from bed in the bamboo temple was so romantic, and every morning seeing the sunrise... More
