This is my happy place. We traveled around Maui but nothing connected to my heart quite like Lumeria in Makawao. Spacious rooms feel like your own beach hut. Free yoga and breathe work classes included and recommended! Free breakfast, amazing bacon and perfect coffee. You feel at peace, like you have the place to yourself, yet there are others around, including charming wild hen with ten baby chicks! This is not a touristy place. The rooms have real keys, more charm. The grounds are landscaped beautifully. Comfy beds, clean spacious bathrooms. It’s all a ten out of ten. <3

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights for his birthday and everything was perfect! The grounds are gorgeous in every way, the plants, the cool places to relax, the views. Our room was simply lovely-from a comfortable bed, lush towels and the best bath products. We did not want to leave for the day on Saturday, but loved hanging out by the pool. We joined an amazing yoga class in the morning and loved the food we had. We had breakfast both mornings and we had dinner Saturday night. My husband loved the steak and they had a delicious tempe main for me as I am vegetarian. We felt like we had gone to heaven for the weekend. I loved this place, it is nothing like the huge resorts on the south and west sides. This feels like the real Hawaii-we can not wait to come back!

I stayed here on a meditation retreat. Overall the experience as good. However, for the price there were a few things I was disappointed with. My bathroom shower had an ant problem for the duration of my stay and it was not addressed when my room was cleaned like requested. The pool area was cleaned due to our requests, not on a regular basis as needed. Items around the resort need updating, like outdoor cushions and some chairs. Breakfast daily was included in our stay, but it again did not meet expectations. It was the same food 6 days in a row. Overall, still a great stay, just didn't meet my expectations for the price I paid to stay there.

This place is special. The classes they offer are outstanding. The caliber of teachers was top notch. They explained their classes very well, they were suited from novice to advance. The grounds were beautiful and the building is a 1920s wooden building with a rich history. Each morning I would do the 8 am yoga class. Then my husband and I would head over to the dining area to order breakfast and enjoy alfresco dining. The food was good, eggs, bacon, steel cut oats, toast and fresh fruit. Also, the coffee was great. It was nice to sit in the jaccuzzi, or hammocks or in the beautiful lobby. This a great place to come to heal and be nurtured.

Loved our stay at Lumeria! Perfect blend of lush gardens, beautifully furnished rooms and very comfortable beds…great sleep. We especially enjoyed the garden facing wrap-around veranda, featuring comfortable day beds, an opportunity to plug in while surrounded by the breathtaking greenery. The daily breakfast was another great welcome, as was the excellent qi gong class taught by Courtney Alex, a highly knowledgeable instructor. Lumeria is a serene blend of beauty and calm. Highly recommend.

Lumeria, at first, looks like a beautiful property. The landscape around the property is lovely, lush, and well maintained. However, after staying at Lumeria for 4-days, this was my experience. The walls are paper-thin, and you can hear everything, so much so it sounds like your neighbors are in your room. Lumeria promotes itself as a wellness space, and the breakfast was everything but that. Each day, it was eggs and bacon, creamer for coffee, no substitutes, and nothing remotely healthy. The staff, while nice, did not appear to have a clue about any of the classes offered, massages and so on. The property has so much potential with its beautiful grounds and location, but everything else was 1 star. Especially how the property sells the experience of Lumeria.

In Makawao Maui, Lumeria is a hidden gem for travelers seeking a clean relaxing place to stay. Driving up a simple country road, my husband and I pulled up to large steel gates that opened dramatically into an sleek, blossoming estate with gorgeous blooming plants and fountains with running water. Everything and everyone there suddenly found themselves taking their stress levels down a few notches and gel with the powerful serenity that seemed to infuse all of us there. I loved the exquisite aesthetics fused with the natural surroundings. Simplistic yet exquisite objects were artfully placed around the property giving the guest the feeling that less was truly more. For years I have not slept as well as I have when I shut my eyes that night at Lumeria. In the morning, we woke up to a delicious breakfast of fresh fruits, wholesome oatmeal; also, yoga was included to rejuvenate and reinvigorate us. Coming to Lumeria was like discovering a priceless pearl in an unopened oyster shell found in the uncharted waters of the ocean. If I ever get the chance, I’d love to come here again.

Room was BEAUTIFUL, but not quite as practical as we would have liked. We were getting ready to do a lot of hiking, esp up on Haleakala, and there was not enough "table" space to sort and reorganize our luggage items. Also, the bathroom door, 2 sliding slated sides, did not allow any privacy from noise or light, and the doors did not slide very silently, either! Please consider another trash can in the main room. HOWEVER, your breakfast is PHENOMENAL (though we could only get one the second day of our stay).

The service was impeccable- everyone went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. The room was gorgeous and clean, lovely wooden floors and hand-carved furniture with a real Hawaiian touch. We will definitely be returning!

This is a review of the lodging side of this property. The Lumeria does offer classes in yoga, meditation, etc. which we did not participate in. When we were there, the Lumeria offered roughly 2 classes per day — one in the early morning and the other in late afternoon. Highlights: -- Beautiful, extremely well-maintained grounds. A serene setting with views of the ocean in the distance. -- Gorgeous pool and hot tub. -- Nice location in upcountry Maui, with good access to Haleakala, Makawao, and Pa'ia. -- Lovely rooms -- a bit spare, but with the nice aesthetic. It looks as if they been recently renovated. Cautions: -- There was no soundproofing in the room, so we could hear everything that our neighbors were doing. Fortunately, our neighbors were fairly considerate, but they still got up at 6:15 AM. Also fortunately, the room on the other side was empty. Given the recent renovation of the room, it's very odd that they didn't include more soundproofing. -- While the rooms were nice, they weren't that comfortable. For instance, there were lots of outlets in the room, but none of them seemed to be convenient for charging devices. -- Wi-Fi was inconsistent. -- Restaurant is only open four nights a week for dinner. -- No air conditioning. It's not really needed in this climate, but it would be a way to offset noise. -- They serve the same breakfast every day. While scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, English muffin, and fruit was nice on day one, we were tired of the selection by day three. And, for a hotel located in the Maui farm country, it seemed very odd that the breakfast selection didn't include any local products. For example, they served supermarket jam in single serving plastic tubs. Also weird — breakfast was served in paper take-out containers with compostable utensils, but everything went into the trash at the end. Very strange for a hotel that touts its organic linens and toiletries. Overall, we didn't understand this place, and it was the only hotel on our Hawaii trip that we are not anxious to revisit. We wondered if that might have something to do with the hotel's recent acquisition by a private equity firm.
