Stunning retreat in upland Maui. Absolutely great retreat but I can imagine it won't be for everyone. On the plus side it is a fantastic cottage, very romantic tucked away in the rainforest, in the middle of nowhere it is perfect for a couple of romantic days away from everything. The hot tub outside with the rainforest all around is something special. We spent our first few nights here on our honeymoon and I can't imagine anywhere better after a long flight. The personal touches around the place made it feel very special.
However it is a car ride down to the beach as well as a car ride to go out for food.
Overall I would highly recommend staying here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We offer two distinctly different cottage rentals; The Thai Tree House and The Aloha Cottage. Both of these romantic maui vacation cottages, along with the main house, are situated on five pristine acres of a pastoral private upcountry, Maui estate. We strive to provide each of our guests with the finest vacation experience within Upcountry Maui and beyond. The Aloha Cottage is adorned with unique Balinese treasures and The Thai Tree House is uniquely decorated with marvelous items from Thailand. Each cottage was custom-built and designed around these two exotic themes while also maintaining an authentic Hawaiian feel to their settings. There's really nothing else like it on Maui. Privacy abounds with each cottage! The design and placement of these two cottages on the property were carefully planned so that would be ample distance away from each other and also that both cottages remain a good distance away from the main house. In fact each cottage is well over 120 yards away from any dwelling in an effort to provide you with an air of seclusion and independence. ... more less
