Experience Hana, Maui in the Summertime

Along with the many experiential activities and classes that take place at Travaasa® Experiential Resorts year round, Travaasa® Hana, Maui offers guests an opportunity to embrace the best of what the island has to offer in the summertime. Two of the resort’s most popular activities have strong ties to the Hawai’i culture and traditions and are prime in the summer season.

For those interested in embracing the island’s natural beauty, lei-making is the best way to spend the afternoon. The tradition of presenting a lei is based around the symbol of affection to someone upon arriving or leaving. The beautiful flowers that cover the islands of Hawai’i are perfectly crafted to make one of a kind Leis. Guests can take advantage of the variety of classes where you can learn the different techniques of Lei making such as lei wili, lei hili and lei kui pololei.

For guests looking to cool down with Travaasa® Hana, Maui’s water activities, Hoe he’e nalu – or stand up paddling – has a rich Hawaiian heritage. The full-body workout is one of the best ways to view Hana Bay. Guests can sign up for SUP or any of the daily programming available during their stay, and learn from an expert guide.

PlumpJack Wine Dinner at Travaasa® Hana, Maui – June 12th

Travaasa® Hana, Maui is partnering with Napa Valley’s PlumpJack Winery to provide guests a complete four-course wine pairing experience. With any dinner reservation, Travaasa® Hana, Maui is offering guests a special discount of 25 percent off accommodations.

PlumpJack Wine Dinner
Tuesday, June 12
6:00 p.m.
Travaasa® Hana, Maui’s Kauiki Restaurant
Cost: $125 per person, inclusive of tax and gratuities
Enjoy the intriguing complexity of PlumpJack wines paired with
the culinary creations of Travaasa Hana’s executive chef Barry Villiarimo.

PlumpJack Winery was founded in 1995 by current Lt. Gov. of California Gavin Newsom and philanthropist Gordon Getty. Inspired by one of Shakespeare’s fun-loving characters, Sir John “PlumpJack” Falstaff, the winery was founded on the premise that wine is one of life’s great pleasures and should be enjoyed as often as possible. Based in Napa Valley’s renowned Oakville region, the winery specializes in the limited production of estate Cabernet Sauvignon and was the first Napa Valley winery to use screwcaps as a wine closure on super premium wines, a bold move representing PlumpJack’s spirit of approachability.
Seating is limited. Reservations required. For dinner and room reservations, please call (808) 248-8211.
