Formerly Hotel Hana-Maui & Honua Spa
From its beginnings as a six-room inn opened in 1946, this secluded property has been completely transformed into an elegantly luxe resort, with 69 rooms in sprawling plantation-style bungalows (697 to 1,475 square feet) perched on a bluff overlooking the ocean. It’s a special place that emphasizes the culture and tradition of Hawaii, from the indigenous patterns used in textiles to ukulele and hula lessons to staff who have been with the hotel for four generations. The spa, with an aquatic therapy pool and lava-rock whirlpool, takes advantage of views of tranquil Hana Bay.
