Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 January 2014

This was our first-ever stay in Hawaii - and all I can say is that Travaasa Hana is a very very hard act to follow. Yes, the Sea Ranch cottages ARE unbelievable. The adults-only environment absolutely unbeatable. The experience of absorbing the staggering panorama of natural magnificence in this place is indelibly marked upon is forever. Add the deeply welcoming and sincerely helpful and generously warm- spirited staff and you have perfection! Mahalo to them all! We will surely return!

Room Tip: Sea Ranch Cottages are worth the splurge- cannot imagine anything better!

I had a great time and would love to go back. The staff are all friendly and exude aloha. The amenities were extensive and kept us entertained all day. Absoutely loved the live evening music! The restaurant options were limited and expensive. I wanted the option to snack rather than dine. You do a lot of walking since the grounds are so large. I didn't mind and just planned ahead an extra 5 min. Since so many of the fun activities require a precise start time I think there should be clocks in the room. The location is remote but the isolation is protecting it from the crowds that come with easy access. The charter flight down was amazing. Hana is truly Hawaiian and I can't wait to go back.

Aloha drivin_n_cryin,

Mahalo for recognizing the Travaasa Hana team for their aloha spirit and their eagerness to provide a memorable Hawaiian experience to all our guests. Our isolation from the craziness of the resort filled areas of Maui is what makes Hana a very special and unique location left untouched by major development. If you want peace, quiet and reconnecting with loved ones, this is the place. Mokulele Airlines is one of the amazing choices of reaching Hana, with breathtaking views of East Maui. Mahalo for choosing Travaasa Hotel Hana!

Incredible Sea Ranch cottages with private hot tub on the deck...what more could one ask for? The Hawaiian style cottages are exactly what one dreams of when visiting the islands. We especially appreciated the adults only area and pool since we were there to relax and celebrate our 30th anniversary. The service was outstanding and warm; the grounds calming and beautiful. I could live in one of those cottages for the rest of my life.

Room Tip: Some Sea Ranch cottages have a more secluded on deck hot tub than others.

We stayed here for 3nights in mid December and had an incredible stay. The manager, Danny, made sure we had an awesome room and even left us a special welcome card and macadamia nut banana bread that was out of this world, for our arrival. He also went the extra mile and provided complimentary champagne for our anniversary! This along with the wonderful arrival greeting made us feel very welcome after the long drive.

This property is nothing short of spectacular. Yes the rooms could desperately use updating, (in fact the corporate brigade was there inspecting during our visit) and they claim to be starting renovations in 2014. Don't let that stop you from staying now. We had an ocean view sea ranch cottage with a spa and it was expensive...the most we've ever paid for a hotel room...but it was worth every penny!

The views, privacy (could use do not disturb signs tho) grounds and staff are all top notch. Even the restaurant was good and the views from there are also to die for. It's all pricey here but there's few options otherwise, so
You hafta just bite the bullet & go for it.

This part of our trip was somewhat of a dream/fantasy come true and a perfect way to finish our Hawaiian vacation...& it did not disappoint!! I'd book again in a minute if I could afford it again!

I'm writing this review from the Airport lounge of Air New Zealand, as I await my flight to Auckland.

After spending 8 days in the hustling, bustling Waikiki, Travaasa Hotel Hana was exactly the anecdote to recovery. It took only 1 day to settle and feel, home away from home! The front office, activities and housekeeping staff are definitely trained at 5 star levels! There was never a task too large/small for them to undertake - no queries were left unattended! Totally remarkable!
The rooms were very spacious, and items such as coffee beans, grinder, daily water and coffee milk supply were meticulously thought of - what an unexpected pleaser! The highlight of the room was the spectacular sea views and the refreshing sound of the ocean. There's nothing quite better than being awaken by the daily sunrise and ocean breeze - heaven on earth!

The only downside was the restaurant - whose menu and food are a lot to be desired! Food is only mediocre, to say the least, with little or no flavours and presentation. Maybe because my husband and I are both foodies, the scrutiny is more resounding. The chef needs more guidance and/or training. The pricing for meals was on point but the level of quality of food did not measure up. The risotto was more like twice with just some garlic butter and the French fries which I ordered to substitute this, which I was still charged for, was fried in very vintage oils- a big no, NO!

Back to the positives, I rate this resort a 5 Star+++++ and will highly recommend this to our circle of friends who are avid travellers! Love, love love this Boutique resort and will definitely return in the years to come.

Btw- Patrick, the driver is a great asset to the business - his kindness, along with a few others like Dawn in activities and of course Mapuana in the Makana Centre, will linger on in our memory, for days/weeks to come! Thanks Travaasa!

Room Tip: Ensure that you book the Ocean view Villas - for a little taste of paradise!

Fantastic and very special place and staff. We have come over the years and very much appreciate this wonderful resort. It is one of so very few places left that represent the old Hawaii and combines that with current activities including an excellent restaurant, spa, and gracious staff that provides very warm and personal service.

Many travelers had discouraged us from heading to Hana --- too long, too windy, too motion sickness - glad we made the trek. The smartest decision was made by the wife when she booked Travaasa after doing the road to Hana. An absolute gem. Clean, spacious, and well furnished. Decked out with a jacuzzi! We had booked only for one night. The impression was so positive - we immediately called the front desk to extend our stay. Stay at the ocean view --- the grounds are well manicured - the pool is pristine - the activities are worthwhile. Uncle Andrew taught my son how to fish net....Jerry led a powerful boot camp to the beach -- An ExPat led a Yoga Class + Smoothie class --- absolute heaven! A former Floridian taught us all about coconut husking. Service is impeccable. When we called front desk regarding some noise at 11PM, we received a personal apology front desk and a suite visit from the chief engineer. Enjoy every second of your time at Hana --- you won't want to leave!

Room Tip: Tips: Do the Activities offered and head to the Thai restaurant next door for lunch before 1130AM...

Aloha HenryChicago_IL,

Thank you for your review! The road to Hana is a must see for any traveler visiting Maui. Yes, it’s windy, but this ride is a one of a kind experience with 52 bridges over the 50 mile drive from central Maui, which means lots of waterfalls to see along the way.

Thank you for pointing out Andrew, who embodies the spirit of aloha and the Hawaiian culture. He very much enjoys sharing his mana’o about the ocean and land and how they play a vital role in our Hawaiian culture. Jerry, what can I say, the man is a beast, love’s providing our guests with the best quality workout experience. And Doug, he’s a very good stand-up paddle instructor and very exceptional at providing an authentic Hawaiian style coconut husking class.

Thank you for choosing Travaasa Hotel Hana!
