The drive to Hana is spectacular but tiring to do as a round trip in a single day. So we decided to stay at the Travaasa Hotel Hana overnight to relax and enjoy Hana as a destination. We knew of the great reputation that the Hana Hotel has always had as an exclusive getaway, but now we know why so many people recommend it. We booked a Sea Ranch Cottage room on the adults-only side of the resort property. We were so happy with our decision. The ambience was of total relaxing elegance. The room was large and comfortable, and the bed was very comfy. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful when you needed them, but they seemed to go out of their way to leave you alone which was wonderful. It added to the total feeling of exclusivity - and it gave us privacy to enjoy the stay the way we wanted to enjoy it. The views from the room's large lanai and the pool were wonderful. The breezes were soothing day and night in the open-air rooms. Because there are no air conditioners here, it was quiet. Very quiet. Birds singing, breezes and the sounds of the waves crashing on the dramatic shoreline was the sound track for our stay. This resort is on a large chunk of tropical property and has large views, but it's not large in guest count - I think I heard the total guest count max would be 160 people. But everyone was in their own little private exclusive world, so it just felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. It was pure R&R...and doing nothing but relaxing was bliss. And romantic...very romantic.
Dinner was also great on the veranda of their hotel restaurant. We had the Super Moon to light up our night when we dined, which added to the ambiance of our dinner. The local Hana chef created an amazingly tasty set of choices. My Mahi-Mahi dish was just fantastic. The service was super friendly and attentive. Dining here was another special time to connect....and it was romantic. Very romantic.
We also enjoyed massages at the spa which were well worth the splurge. The outdoor showers were like waterfalls which were refreshing and invigorating.
If you want to get away from the world for a relaxing private experience, this is the place. You will absolutely get a lot of R&R&R here at the Hotel Hana.
