“As an art collector, who likes to buy from KIND people, H.C.G. is TOPS!”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

From the manager, Alesiamae Chow- a warm, inviting, and knowledgeable art curator, who utterly exudes the "Aloha" spirit to the truly remarkable, serious art collector level art, the Hana Coast Gallery is TOPS!!!

Additionally, they sell diversified categories of art, from paintings to jewelry to handmade and stunning furniture. Our stay there could have lasted for hours; had we the time that glorious day.

Though we stayed for some time, we wish it could have gone on for much longer, due, again, to Alesiamae and the art, itself. The piece that we bought is a stunner; a water color created on gold leaf paper and framed in gorgeously treated bamboo.

Also, Hana is a naturally beautiful locale, with black (and red, i believe) beaches; has a great adjacent hotel with a wonderful open air restaurant overlooking the ocean as I recall, and though the drive TO Hana from Kahului, which contains the 617 curves, the amazing and unique natural beauty throughout the drive is incredibly stunning; then, voila!, you are in Hana, which is a really pretty small town.

Such beauty from all dimensions. Do not mis this paradise on your trip to Maui.

“Outstanding collection of art”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

We happened to visit this art gallery while driving to and around Hana. What a find. The Koa wood bowls and other carvings; the fabric art; the numerous paintings and ceramics were as fine a collection as I have seen anywhere. We frequent Sedona and Scottsdale galleries and we believe this collection was far superior. The staff person had worked at the gallery for years and was very knowledgeable. Definitely a must-see when you go to Hana

“Beautiful Gallery in a unique location”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

Hana Coast Gallery contains an eclectic collection of many different types of Hawaiian arts and crafts. There is beautiful handcrafted furniture that looks so smooth that one feels compelled to touch the surface. There are beautiful as well as whimsicle paintings of Hawaiian scenes. We picked up a set of hand painted coasters. The gallery director, Alesia Chow is a warm, welcoming and friendly woman who made us feel right at home. This is a gallery that we will visit each time we return to Hana. It is located in the Transvaa Hana Hotel (formerly Hotel Hana Maui).

“Another fantastic gallery in Paia”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

We stopped in Paia after our helicopter tour of Maui. I was overwhelmed by the great galleries in this small town. This is another one of them. The selection of Hawaiian art was incredible. Recommended.

“Authentic Artistic Expressions of Hawaiian Spirit and Beauty ..no ka'oi”
Reviewed April 17, 2011

This attractive gallery located in Hana is an unexpected treat. The quality and variety of Hawaiian Koa Bowls, furniture, ceramics, paintings, rugs, and prints is the best on Maui. The Gallery Director, Alesia Ku'ulei Chow is engaging and knowledgeable. There is no pretense here ...no pressure to purchase. The atmosphere is warm and welcomes the visitor to explore the beauty of Hawaii thru the talent and love the artists have for their craft and land.
My husband and I have visited the gallery over the course of 15 years .We always enjoy our experience. If you are lucky enough to be in Heavenly Hana, spend some time at the Hana Coast Gallery......ALOHA...Mary Ellen and Harry
