Travaasa Hotel Hana

+ Project Info

Originally opened in 1947, this legendary destination property is located on the lush eastern shores of Maui near the end of the famous Hana Highway. Enjoying picturesque panoramic views of Hana Bay and the Pacific Ocean, the Hotel together with its gardens embraces and features an authentically Hawaiian Sense of Place. Although in a setting of unspoiled natural and serene beauty the property experienced a decline for several years before new owners, Rosewood Hotel Company launched multi-faceted and comprehensive initiatives to reestablish the Legend. During a period of over two years, Mr. Bennitt, worked closely with the Rosewood Management Team and a Honolulu based architectural team to completely re-vision and to holistically upgrade all aspects of the guest experience, including the expansive grounds and gardens. This effort involved the development of an environmentally appropriate site plan and landscape theme for the addition of 47 plantation style Sea Ranch Cottages together with a new spectacular resort pool and outdoor function venue. Today, the property’s new operators, Travaasa, have enthusiastically embraced the original tenets of our holistic design approach with a business philosophy of providing an exceptional escape for those seeking serene natural beauty, enriching their lives and immersing themselves in the authentic local traditions of their destination, “Maui’s last truly Hawaiian Place”. The revitalized Hotel recently received the highly acclaimed 2011 Conde Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Award as the “Number 1 Resort in Hawaii”.
