Travaasa Hana is "Maui's ultimate escape", says Lonely Planet. The location is truly secluded, perched on a cliff at the end of the twisting Hana Highway. There are no electronic gadgets in the rooms, but guests are well looked after, with free leis and a glass of Pog on arrival (a traditional juice made from guava, passion fruit and orange). Better still, there is no resort fee.
Most on-site activities are free -- guests can learn how to hula and mix cocktails, go for guided coastal walks or try paddle boarding and snorkelling. The spa was voted the best in Hawaii by Condé Nast Traveler readers in 2012 and offers hot-stone treatments and an outdoor lava-rock whirlpool with stunning bay views.
While there's no beach at the resort, there is a free shuttle bus to Hamoa Beach (10 minutes away), where the east-coast waters are ideal for surfing. Back at the hotel, the restaurant uses local ingredients in a menu that showcases healthy Asian fusion dishes, like grilled salmon and raw vegetable salad.
Rooms are simply laid out, with hardwood floors and modern furniture, but do not have TVs or other gadgets. There are ceilings fans instead of air conditioning, and screened French doors, which help to keep rooms cool. Sea Ranch Cottages (available to all-inclusive guests) are for adults only and have large balconies facing the ocean (some also have private hot tubs). Wi-Fi, local calls, in-room bottled water and coffee, welcome snack and refreshments, self-parking and gratuities are all included.
