Reviewed April 5, 2014

Stayed here with my wife for 7 nights, booked through Expedia. After a 3 hours drive through Hana Hwy (360) at night, we were the last ones to check in, apparently things closes after 8pm in Hana. We stayed at the garden suite, beautiful open space, very quiet, private porch, exactly the quietness we were looking for this trip. We didn't plan to do any crazy excursion for this trip, and this place is perfect either you want active, or relaxation. Staff are very friendly and kind. We sign out a Ukulele for fun, and ended up getting a private lesson (thanks Mapuana). Next morning we got a fruit basket from local farm from the concierge (thanks Dawn). Archery lesson with Doug was super fun, and thanks for a flavor of Maui history. You can tell they love their job, and love Hana, and they definitely showed they truly want your stay to be enjoyable. Thank you Mapuana, Andrew, Doug, Ruth, and Dawn! This is a memorable trip especially with your hospitality.

Aloha Ken and Sam,

I’m very pleased you had a very enjoyable time and team member’s you mentioned provided that exceptional service to help make your trip a memorable one. I’m glad you enjoyed the fruit basket from Dawn who does a fabulous job in creating memorable experiences for all our guests. Mapuana is a very good ukulele instructor who also comes with a tremendous knowledge of our Hawaiian culture. Doug’s archery class is really fun, he also does an incredible stand up paddling class as well.

Thank you for sharing your Travaasa experience on Tripadvisor and we look forward to welcoming you back to Hana.

Mahalo,

We just stayed at the Travaasa Hotel Hana, for three nights, in one of the Sea Cottages (room 512 - great view). No TV, no Internet, no newspaper - how wonderful is that? Every morning was started early on the rear deck, drinking Hana coffee, watching the sun come up out of the Pacific Ocean, less than a football field away.

No air conditioning meant sleeping with all the windows open - that took a little getting used to, but the sound of the ocean became very relaxing.

This place is NOT inexpensive - you are paying for location, not the marble of a Ritz-Carlton. Other reviews mentioned how friendly everyone is here - that is mostly true (we especially enjoyed the golf cart drivers and housekeeping staff!), however, the wait staff in both the restaurant and lounge did match the positive attitude of the hotel staff. They were simply going through the motions.

The food is expensive, but I understand how difficult it is to transport it there. However, the quality was very good.

Aloha MikelMizzou,

Let me start by apologizing for your less than satisfactory dining experience. I have shared your comments with our restaurant operator to ensure proper training is conducted to ensure this type of negative guest experience is eliminated.

I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay in room 512, what a beautiful room with views of the Pacific Ocean and horses in the pasture just across the way.

We try to keep our dining prices competitive with similar caliber restaurants on Maui, but as you pointed out, there is a price of doing business in a remote area.

Thank you for your comments and for choosing Travaasa Hotel Hana. We look forward to hosting you again.

Mahalo,

This picturesque resort is the perfect place for anyone who wishes to get away from the touristy atmosphere found on the west side of Maui. With that said, it should be noted that this is a secluded area, with limited selections in terms of restaurants and shopping. To compensate, however, the resort offers a wide variety of complimentary activities that keep you occupied on a rainy day.

Aloha Ice P,

Thank you for sharing your comments with our Tripadvisor readers! You are absolutely correct, Travaasa Hana is the perfect place to get away from it all. The town of Hana does not offer a lot of restaurants and shopping options like the other resorts towns on Maui do, but what Travaasa Hotel Hana does offer is peace, tranquility, rejuvenation and the perfect opportunity to connect with loved ones.

Thank you for choosing Travaasa Hotel Hana.

Stayed 3 nights, which included the short flight on a tiny plane. Everything was arranged perfectly. Relaxing spa, yummy drinks and great pools. We took the all inclusive food plan so food prices weren't an issue. All of the staff were super friendly and their love of Hana is evident. As others have said, dining can get boring, especially since the lunch menu is the same every day. But food isn't the draw here. It's the people. It's paradise.

Aloha RSIERRA,

Mokulele Airlines is a short 15 minute flight from Kahului Airport to Hana filled with unbelievable views of the East Maui coastline along the way. Thank you for mentioning the Travaasa team and the super job they did during your stay! Most of the team members, including myself are born and raised here in Hana and the love for the property and Hana is evident through our quality of work and those memorable experiences we provide all our guests.

Thank you for choosing Travaasa Hotel Hana!

The Travaasa Hana is a retreat where you truly relax. The entire staff is amazing and made us feel like we were at home. We are still raving about Hubert! He did an outstanding job coordinating our dream wedding. We commend his efforts and professionalism. We already booked another stay in the same Sea Ranch Cottage for our one year anniversary!

So quiet and relaxing. I have never been more relaxed! We're here on our anniversary and we're staying in a sea cottage, and it is great, so private! It's like your own condo, very nice place, huge patio with a nice Hawaiian breeze. Highly recommend this place if your looking for a romantic getaway. They have in room dining and a beach close by, they offer lots of activities and have a restaurant. Let's see what else can I say beautiful ocean view, beautiful pool. No tv but who needs one here. At first we were a little worried about that but a few days in we're not missing it. Lots to do here a great experience all around.

Aloha Trese72,

Congratulations again on your anniversary and thank you for spending such a special occasion with us. The layout of Travaasa Hana allows our guests to experience an almost private resort feel, which is almost unheard of at most Maui resorts. We offer a variety (complimentary and paid) of activities to our guests on a daily basis or if you want to lay around and spend quality time with that special someone, this is the perfect place.

Thank you for choosing Travaasa Hotel Hana and we look forward to hosting you again.

My wife found Travaasa through Conde Naste and we stayed there last week for four nights with our two young daughters. The best way to sum up our experience is to tell you we booked seven nights for next March (2015) before we departed.

Travaasa Hana is in all respects an exceptional place - in a truly beautiful part of the world, east Maui, Hana. We have experienced helpful staff before but the Travaasa staff members are different in that they exude happiness and positivity. They almost reflect back the relaxed, happy, sunny vibe of the region. I realize the food and beverage staff are technically employed separately from the resort staff. While I think this could present a potential wrinkle in service consistency our experience was that both teams worked very well together as an integrated whole. Ryan will forever remain our favorite bartender, Hana dad of three, and Hana raconteur.

If you don't have younger children I would recommend a sea cottage. If you like seafood I would stick with the fresh catch. All the dinners are pricey but on par with luxury hotels in Wailea - in other words, very expensive. Breakfast was exceptional and 100 times nicer than eating in a crowded resort dining room.

The Makana pool house staff is wonderful. We loved learning about the culture of the islands in between swims and relaxing poolside. Our girls spend hours coloring and crafting out of the sun.

I met with Danny the night before we left and we chatted about the resort and our memorable experience. We are grateful that places like Traavasa Hana exist... We will be dreaming about our return next March.

Travaasa Hana has what really appeals to us - great people, interesting culture, emphasis on fitness, locally inspired cuisine, and above all, real heart.

Travaasa Hana is a very unique experience and it was a pleasure to have shared that experience with you and your ohana.
