Get upcountry at Ho'omani
We loved our generous space in the Makena room at the Ho'omani Spa & Inn. It is worth the drive to go upcountry and be surrounded by bird songs every evening and morning. Justin is a wonderful host, and I think we met everyone in his family, including the dog! We never had time for the spa, but the Inn is perfect for those who like to explore, and are willing to drive to the beach. Makawao shopping is just right: a very good grocer, just a few shops and restaurants. Thanks so much.
A lovely and restful retreat.
the space was wonderful, peaceful and restorative. I would return in a heartbeat.
Much nicer than it looks in the pictures!
I am a local from Honolulu and just loved the peace and quiet in this serene setting. Everything was beautiful--the room, the grounds, the spa. The lomilomi massage was wonderful. I love the location in Makawao, just a few minutes from the town. Highly recommended.
Just as we had hoped
The Makena studio was everything we hoped for. Our family of four, boys 3 and 4, had an amazing time exploring upcountry form our mountain getaway. We loved how remote it felt yet still being easily accessible. The lawn was great for our boys to run around in. We would definitely stay again! Thank you for your hospitality!
Peaceful and comfy!
Makena cottage is the perfect place for staying in upcountry Maui. We loved being away from the hustle and bustle and experiencing Maui from a local's point of view! A couple's perfect place for a relaxing getaway! Be sure to indulge in the spa amenities! They do a very good job! Professional, clean and pampering!
Wonderful for quiet, peace, seclusion, beauty, upcountry location
We absolutely loved our stay here. Beautiful seclusion in the upcountry tropical foothills. Closer to the Road to Hana, Haleakala Park Entrance, Lavender Farm, etc. It does take a few extra minutes to drive up to the location from Makawao on a twisty narrow road, but we actually enjoyed the seclusion. We appreciated the fresh fruit and refrigerated juices, snack bars, and treats. Note that the office is closed after 5, but they do respond to the after hours phone number. Checking in and out is simple. Wonderful place. It was great to be away from the hustle and bustle of.....everything!
Located Close to Makawao Forest Reserve, Pi'iholo Ranch and Pi'iholo Zipline.
