Travaasa® Hana, Maui Scores a Bull’s Eye With New Archery Experience

HANA, MAUI, HAWAII – As part of its new resort offerings, Travaasa® Hana, Maui (formerly Hotel Hana-Maui) on Maui’s eastern shore recently debuted the island’s only hotel archery experience. Certified archery instructors who are longtime hotel employees and Hana residents lead the two-hour activity, which takes place twice a week near the hotel’s turn-of-the-century Plantation Guest House in Hana and is available exclusively to resort guests.

 

“We’re pleased to be the only hotel on Maui to offer archery,” said Karyn Johnson, program manager at Travaasa® Hana, Maui. “Our expansive lawn area, quietly swaying palm trees, and Hana’s breathtaking natural beauty create the perfect backdrop for this unique and enriching experience.”

By participating in this activity, resort guests can learn and practice the foundation of archery while boosting mental attention and physical performance in a fun way. The resort’s archery instructors were trained in the Junior Olympic Archery Development program and certified by USA Archery. They teach techniques to develop focus, patience, flexibility, concentration, and attention skills to help understand why great archers develop these simple concepts to heighten all aspects of their lives.

Archery complements Travaasa® Hana, Maui’s existing adventure programming, which includes throw net fishing, coastal horseback rides, bicycle tours, and more. Travaasa® Hana, Maui also incorporates culinary, culture, fitness, and spa/wellness activities into its extensive programming lineup. All activities reflect the local traditions and small town flavor of Hana.

The archery experience is offered at no additional charge to all guests staying at Travaasa® Hana, Maui. Sign-ups are first come, first serve, and are limited to six guests per class.

Located at the end of the famous Road to Hana, the original property opened in 1947 and became a favorite retreat for generations of travelers seeking barefoot elegance, unspoiled natural beauty and a Hawaiian sense of place. Travaasa® Experiential Resorts’ philosophy is to provide an escape for those looking to experience something new, enrich their lives and immerse themselves in local traditions, which pays tribute to the hotel’s original intention.

The AAA Four Diamond Hotel was recently rated the No. 1 Hawaii Hotel and No. 58 in the world in the 2011 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards Poll. The Spa at Travaasa® Hana, Maui was named the No. 1 Resort Spa in Hawaii by Condé Nast Traveler in 2011.
