Luana Spa Retreat
Ranked #4 of 10 Specialty Lodging in Hana
Reviewed November 29, 2012

This stay and experience in Hana was unforgettable. I highly recommend staying 2 nights or more. There is so much you have to see on the road to Hana, then you need to go over to the 7 pools and the huge waterfall and bamboo rainbow hike. You must stay at least 2 nights. The place was fantastic, the shower was perfect and her products were awesome! You get your own private oceanfront view, nobody around, private yet close to neighbors if needed. Sit at night and listen to the water sipping some refreshments with the tiki torches going.
Stay here!

Room Tip: Only one room to choose

Hey, if you want to mix it up and talk story with real Hawaiians forget the Hana Maui hotel and their 5 figure rooms and head across the street to Luana Spa Retreat. You'll stay in a yurt perched atop of the cinder cone that is the top of Red Beach with a fantastic ocean view, all the massages you can take and good food all over. Baseball season is a big deal at the little ballpark across the street and the locals turn out with all their homemade foodstuffs like lau lau pork and spam musubi! Beats the heck out of the phony Hawaii experience.

Room Tip: There is only one!

Thanks to the TripAdvisor reviews, we booked the Luana Retreat yurt for three nights this October. What a find! Hana is an expensive place to stay, and Luana Retreat is a great value here. The yurt is on Red Hill overlooking Hana Bay; such a gorgeous location and easy walking distance to the Red Sand Beach. The yurt is well equipped, with a kitchenette and an outdoor propane BBQ. The shower and toilet are in a separate adjacent building, but we did not find that to be a problem (we loved the outdoor shower). It is such a peaceful setting, and a great way to experience Hana. And be sure to have some Nutcharee's Thai food, which is at the bottom of the driveway. I highly recommend Luana Spa Retreat.

This was the perfect place to stay overnight in Hana. It truly felt like an island vacation. This side of the island is truly amazing. The view of the yurt was postcard worthy. We were surrounded by a lush green hill. This was the most peaceful setting. I wish I would have stayed here for a couple more days. Since it is a single yurt, you have privacy. Showering outside was a memorable experience on its own.
We stayed over on a Friday and the locals were having movie night across the way at the ball park. This event was a good way to interact with the locals, which by the way, were very welcoming.
There was a lot of places to see that we're walking distance like the hasegawa store, Hana bay beach, and the red sand beach.

I would recommend this place in a heart beat!

All the comfort you want and need in the most exotic setting with a view you can't beat of Hana's bay.The open air ,although very private shower, is made of natural stones and surrounded by ferns and orchids.You'll feel invigorated after using the bamboo and lemongrass scrub (one of many spa products they provide)There is only one yurt so no neighbours!A private hale,a bbq, lawn chairs at your disposal.Huge bouquet of fresh cut tropical flowers,very well equipped kitchenette.

No breakfast but simply go stock up at Hana's fresh ( the farmer's market at the town's entrance)

Room Tip: although there is hot water for shower and bathroom sink there's only cold water in kitchenette

My wife and I stayed at the Spa Retreat for a night toward the end of our honeymoon. After a year and a half of planning a wedding, this was exactly the relaxation we needed. The yurt is enjoyable and surprisingly roomy, with a a nice little table inside for dinner. The outdoor bathroom is clean and private though it did get somewhat buggy at night (fine during the daytime hours). The view from outside the yurt is beautiful and there is a grill to make dinner with. Alternatively, there is a microwave and a surprising amount of creature comforts in the yurt. We each had a massage, cooked a big dinner (supermarket nearby), and relaxed looking out on the water. While allowing us considerable privacy, the staff also made themselves very available to help in any way. This is true even after 6pm when they are offsite and you have the retreat to yourself.

Our only regret is that we were not able to stay longer, but we will make a point of returning in the future.

We stayed for one night in the Yurt this month and it wasn't enough time. It was very relagreat xing and peaceful, a feeling of seclusion yet right in town, and what a great view. This was a place to stay for the night before heading out to hike the Pipiwai Trail to Waimoku Falls.

It did rain off and on as expected, just a bit of warning when we were there the canvas awning was sagging a bit from the rain and when you open the front door it raises the canvas which in turn dumped some water on us. Which made for a very memorable experience. Overall the stay was great and well diffidently come back and next time stay more than one night.
