The grounds of the Hotel Travaasa offer a secluded, breathtaking escape in sleepy Hana. Formerly the Hotel Hana Maui (until June 2011), the Travaasa offers a bevy of activities and natural beauty.
Thanks to jet lag, I found myself awake pre-sunrise. This afforded me the opportunity to wander across the grounds and watch the sunrise.
The rooms are no-frills, simple, and clean.
Though there’s plenty to keep you busy on the grounds, if you’re looking for a nearby hike, I’d encourage you to check out my favorite: The Pipiwai Trail.
