Lumeria Maui in Makawao, Maui, Hawaii
Originally housing for sugar cane workers, the restored Lumeria Maui property now serves as an international mecca for restoration of a spiritual, physical and emotional kind. The edible, indigenous gardens are consistent with owner Xorin Balbes’ SoulSpace Process through which he focused on honoring the area’s flora and ancestors. This is a place for thriving, for adventuring and for discovering yourself in virgin nature.
After rising with the sun for guided meditation, take an Anusara Yoga class. Learn windsurfing in the Pacific with the resort’s acclaimed instructors, and break for an organic, soul-healing lunch of fruits indigenous to Maui. Take a deep-sea fishing excursion, catch some mahi-mahi and delight in a version of that same fish encrusted with Macadamia nuts for dinner at Lumeria’s farm-to-table restaurant as the sun sets over the West Maui Mountains. End your invigorating day at a SlowFlow Dance class.

Reviews for Lumeria Maui
The Lumeria is such a beautiful location away from the tourist bustle in other parts of Maui. Close to Baldwin Park beach with great waves and shopping in Paia. Such a healing peaceful retreat! I'll be returning!
Lumeria is a beautiful boutique resort in Maui. The rooms are well appointed and the grounds are well maintained and serene. The open fires are a great addition and the furnishings are lovely. What could have made this stay so much better is the service, while it's a quiet, peaceful and restful place, pool service and room service would be a welcome addition. The onsite restaurant is easily accessible but has restricted hours and without a car, it's difficult to get to Paia for food. Our style of travel is relaxing by the pool or on the lanai so these additions would suit our travel style. I would also suggest bottled water in the rooms as it's inconvenient to walk to reception to fill cups of water to carry back to your room for teeth brushing, etc. or just to stay hydrated. We were looking forward to trying one of the wellness treatments but after requesting a treatment, we never heard back from the practitioner, even after following up. Breakfast is included in the rate and consists of a simple buffet style spread. Overall our stay was good but it could have been so much more as this resort has the potential to be amazing.
Everything was very good. I had a few problem with sheets cleanness. As airlines getting harsh on bringing a big bag. I did not bring any shower stuff. It seems to me staff were very stingy about the amenities.

This is in upcountry Maui on the northshore. Which means it can be very windy and no beach nearby. But if youâ€™re looking for a place to relax and experience â€śslow Hawaiian styleâ€ť this is the place to do it. Itâ€™s between Paâ€™ia and Makawao towns (both are quaint little towns to walk around), only 30-40 mins from the airport and you will feel like youâ€™re in a very different Maui than the very developed south shore. We were here as part a group for 7 day yoga retreat. It was our first time here but we really enjoyed our stay but I would recommend booking directly with the hotel so you can select the room. Rooms: The Hotel has 4 buildings where the rooms are located and forms a horseshoe around the the inner courtyard and garden. They only have 24 rooms and only a few are suites. The suites are the only rooms the have doorways that face interior courtyard and exterior (In building 1: 1A and 1D). We were in 1D and itâ€™s huge and worth the extra price. Main room has a four poster king bed. The daybed can comfortably sleep two children or one adult. In each building, rooms either face interior courtyard or exterior. Building 1: furthest from the lobby on the right. I think this is the quietest building, particularly the ones the face the exterior whispering pines forest. Each room has a sitting area outside with a Balinese Lounge bed. But there is no privacy guards between room. The rooms facing the whispering pines also have partial ocean views and gets a nice breeze and afternoon sun. The interior facing rooms have a covered porch, so itâ€™s shaded all day. Building 2: adjacent to the lobby on the right and exterior rooms face the back gardens. The interior rooms have the fire-pit sitting area right in front, so can be noisy at night if guests hang out to chat and toast marshmallows around the fire pit. Building 3: adjacent to the lobby on the left and next to the hotel restaurant. Exterior rooms face the front garden, reception building and temporary parking for Check-in. So this can be noisy in the morning. Interior rooms have covered patio and lack privacy, being between lobby and restaurant. Room here likely have the least privacy and most noise. Building 4: furthest from the lobby on the left. Interior rooms are closest to the pool and hot tub, so maybe a little noisy. But good privacy. Exterior rooms face the walkway between pool, parking lot and hotel restaurant and really lack privacy. The exterior room porch lights are also super bright since it needs to light the walking path. Itâ€™s also right next to the restaurant, so you really canâ€™t sit outside to enjoy your private outdoor space. Furniture/Decor: Balinese/Hawaiian plantation style. There are ceiling fans but no air conditioner and no TV. The room does get hot in the middle of the day. Most nights it cools down but some nights it was hot. Bath: large shower, sink and toilet, comfortably fit two adults. Food: Our group includes all food. Breakfast is pretty standard fare (scrambled eggs, fruit, sausage and potatoes) and the same daily. Tea and coffee included. But we enjoyed both the lunches and dinners. Local, healthy food. We had a different menu daily for the 7 days. The salads were super tasty and fresh, entrees were fish, beef or chicken. The burger is one of my favorite. Pool: the pool is average size and saline which is very nice. The water is lightly heated which feels very nice on a hot day. We swam every day. Yoga: we were with our own group for yoga but hotel offers free daily exercise or activities as well. The staff was so nice and we enjoyed our room and all the outdoor nooks to relax in. I loved our outdoor patio with ocean view. Perfect to enjoy a cup of tea while reading a book. Really enjoyed our stay here. Mahalo!

Great place to get away from daily hustle and bustle and disconnect. Nice change from crowded touristy beaches. Instead of ocean you get hammock and the breeze through the pine trees. Nice break in the schedule to sightsee during the day.
