Our Gifts To You
As remote-work options are becoming more common, we welcome you to work from paradise here in Maui. We offer state-of-the-art, high-speed fiber-optic internet access in all of our accommodations. For those who prefer an electromagnetic-free environment, access can be turned off and you can rest peacefully.
The new luxury is space, and we are blessed to be immersed in nature. We are located in the majestic and lush Valley of the White Owl on the North Shore. Our secluded location creates a magical refuge that is centrally located, while also offering easy access to Haiku, Paia, Hana, and Haleakala. Here, you can experience authentic Hawaii, and immerse yourself in the rich culture and land. If you find us, then you are meant to stay with us in our hidden Shangri-la.
Powered By Clean Energy
Since 1985, our entire land has been developed sustainably and ecologically. We are off the grid and powered by the sun. Your body rests deeply and recharges in an environment free from electromagnetic waves. Feel rejuvenated as your dreams become more vivid and meditations reach new depths.
Trip Advisor Platinum Green
The Maui Eco Retreat was one of the first places to be bestowed with the honor of Tripadvisor Platinum Green Leader, which represents the highest commitment to sustainable living and ecotourism. Our Aina—the Spirit of the land—welcomes you to learn about being a socially responsible traveler.
Your experiences watching the sunrise over the ocean, smelling fresh air after it rains, and listening to the birdsongs will imprint in your DNA. Nature downloads are abundant and free, as long as you tune your reception station and are ready to receive. Become attuned to the interconnectedness of all beings.
Communal Food Forest
Our innovative agroforestry garden revitalizes the soil and provides us with an abundance of native staple foods. Biologically sustainable and diverse, it contributes to our island’s mission for food security. In addition to the bounty from the agroforestry garden, you can also enjoy fresh, organic food that we grow in our vegetable garden and fruit orchards around the property. Boost your immune system to keep COVID-19 at bay with healthy, organic greens!
Volcanic Aquifer Well Water
Our water is rainwater that comes from the slopes of the Haleakala, filtered through underground porous rock for about 25 years to naturally enhance it with life-giving minerals. Our 450-foot well then pumps our delicious, pure, and alkaline water from the volcanic aquifer for you to enjoy.
The spirit of our land and energy of our community create a healing sanctuary and restorative retreat experience. Here, you can connect with your Eco-Soul and benefit from the teachings of nature, our local community, and offerings, such as yoga, meditation, and other classes. Come home to yourself.
