The Road To Hana leads you directly to your own piece of paradise, Travaasa Hana. I almost wonder if the drive along the coastline of Maui prepares you for a stay at Travassa. The beautiful waterfalls and scenery immerse you in natural beauty while the 15 mph drive prepares you for a slower pace of life. Travaasa Hana is the place to drop your bags along with all your cares and worry. You are in paradise, and there are no TV’s or other distractions to interrupt your bliss. I’m here for two nights; I can’t wait to experience all the magic and tranquility this iconic retreat has to offer me.

Welcome to Travaasa Hana

We pull into Travaasa, unload our luggage into a golf cart and hand over the car keys to the Valet. That is the first thing we do when we arrive, and I like it. Reception is right there and after the usual exchange our Porter invites us into the golf cart for a tour of the property and then he’ll take us to our room. Ok, I really like this.

I’ll give you the tour in a bit but first let me show you our room. We are located in the bungalows on the main part of the property. The ocean side half of the property has Villas. Apparently we are the first to stay in these bungalows since their renovation. From the outside, I’m impressed. It appears to be quite big with a large thatched porch and sliding screen doors as our way to enter.

Inside my suspicion is confirmed; it is huge inside. Two queen sized beds, couch and chairs plus a small work table, and a bar kitchen complete with a dining table for two. If you are sharing this bungalow with a friend or loved one you don’t need to worry about tripping over each other as there is plenty of room for each of you to stretch out.

The bathroom is also massive and comes complete with a soaker tub, a separate shower, a large closet, and vanity area for getting ready. I’m not sure if the bathrooms were updated in the renovation as it has a more rustic feel, but the space is perfectly adequate for my needs.

Ok now that I’ve shown you where I will sleep for two nights let me show you the real reason you come to Travaasa Hana. A short walk from my bungalow over to the oceanside half of the property are the Villas, Yoga Studio and the Infinity Pool and hot tub. This is where I will spend almost all my time at Travaasa. Lounging and floating the pool while all my cares and concerns are forgotten.

Of course, Travaasa has all the amenities you may need during your stay. There is a fine dining restaurant and a more casual lounge for eating and drinking. There is an art gallery on property showcasing local artists and of course, there is another pool, Spa, and tennis courts if you are feeling the need for more activity.

Like I said though, I am spending all my time in the infinity pool. Well, maybe I spent a few hours napping in this hammock as well.

This was two days of bliss. I can only imagine what a week or a month here would be like. Almost cut off from the rest of the world a stay at Travaasa Hana is a pure Hawaiian slice of paradise.
