Take a short drive from Maui's Kahului airport to find yourself in one of the most relaxing places on the North Shore. Between the historic towns of Paia and Makawao is Lumeria, a retreat that promotes wellness and encourages you to completely disconnect during your stay.
This boutique getaway has 24 individually designed guest rooms, in which you can choose between the courtyard or ocean view. Complimentary organic continental breakfast, free parking, and wifi (for those who have to be online) is offered, along with access to free daily classes and activities. Not to mention the friendly and most adorable property cat, Luy, who I secretly wanted to take back with me to LA.
KSOLE and I stayed at Lumeria for two nights, but we didn't have the chance to take advantage of the classes and spa services options as we were often out exploring Maui. We did, however, attend the sunrise mediation right before we checked out on Sunday. We left the class feeling refreshed and relaxed, embodied in positivity.
Speaking of positivity, every time we mentioned Lumeria to other folks on the island, they gleamed with excitement. It's a secret gem according to many and those who have visited, had an amazing time as we did.
Please note that Lumeria is not your regular hotel, it is a wellness retreat aimed to provide you an intimate and inspiring experience. Therefore, you will notice that people sleep early and the property gets extremely quiet after 8PM. Just remember to be mindful of your neighbors when entering and exiting the property. Also, be on the lookout for Luy, who loves to cuddle and will walk you to and from your room.
