Hotel Hana-Maui

Beachside Bliss: The undisturbed calm of the coast-side Hotel Hana-Maui

Steal away to Hana. The little eastern hub of Maui, a former stronghold of ancient Hawaiian chiefs, or ali'i, abounds with volcanic seaside cliffs, lush tropical forests, and remote beaches. THE LOVE NEST: The most romantic hideaway in the small town is Hotel Hana-Maui, an elegant plantation-style ranch by the sea. The Romantic Paradise package—including four nights' lodging in the junior garden suite, breakfast, two massages, and a dinner by candlelight—starts at $1,806 (800-321-4262, www.hotelhanamaui.com). DOUBLES PLAY: The resort offers coast or trail rides on horseback (one-hour ride, $50). Or book a hotel guide and hike to the Seven Sacred Pools of Ohe‘o Gulch, a series of 24 lava-rock pools emptying into the Pacific, or to Pa‘iloa, a spectacular black-sand beach in Wai'anapanapa State Park.
