Unplugging mindfully helps reclaim those qualities of ease that can become diluted in the hectic whirl of our over-scheduled lives. Our handpicked team of experienced guides offers practical, real-life skills to revive moment-to-moment awareness. We weave a calming balance of scheduled activities into stretches of unstructured time for you to settle into your natural rhythm. The intimate and uncrowded ranch retreat venue — we host only one program at a time each week — offers as much opportunity for the community as it does for solitude and personal space.
Coming from California I love long coastal drives and the idea of one through some of the most beautiful parts of Hawaii was on the top of my list. Take a day or two on your itinerary to Maui and plan a journey along the Road to Hana. Use my tips for the Road to Hana to get the most out of your journey.
That is part of the beauty of the trip but why you might not want to do it on a whim. I hope this article is useful. Consider staying the night before in Paiaright at the start of the drive. Also, if you want to take your time remember to book a room along the road.
There are a few places to spend the night in Hana. You can still do the drive in a day from Lahaina where I stayed or Kihei. This allows you to get ahead of many of the crowds. Gas along the road is far more expensive than the other parts of the island. Even starting early you will take the full day to do the trip.
Make sure to pack some simple snacks to keep you over until lunch and then until dinner. Bring a few water bottles. So make sure to write it down and the GyPSy Guide will help you find it on the road. Plan a couple spots you know you want to see and then pick a couple that catches your eye along the way.
Most of the bridges along the way are single lanes, be sure to know basic etiquette. There are also over bends along this road. Make sure to take them slow enough that you stay on your side of the road.
No reason to waste money on an upgrade. I did find that everywhere we stopped was worth it and know there are more that would have been as well.
You can take in the view of the falls and back out to the ocean the other way. The best spots to eat along the Road to Hana are the food trucks. You can enjoy their fish tacos or their BBQ meats. Their potato salad was also spectacular and a huge side for just an extra dollar.
It was just past the general store and worth the wait! But what they do bring are some beautiful falls. If the weather is right, you can also take a swim in some of these beautiful pools.
You can also keep going for more falls worth the view. Remember that it is about the journey, what you experience between places, that is just as important. The Road to Hana was one of my favorite activities on the island of Maui, but there is so much more to enjoy on the island.
For a few more ideas take a look at my favorite outdoor activities I had a chance to try. Have you taken the drive before? If so what tips for the Road to Hana would you pass along?May 20, · Maui trip review - Maui Forum.

Reading some of the bad reviews on here has made me want to write a review praising this hotel as i feel its not getting enough credit.
Anyone who gives a whole list of 'cons' and 'worst hotel ever' are either people who want to go for a holiday and stay indoors all day or snobs.
