I was right where I needed to be. I connected with amazing volunteers that were truly gifted, kind, big hearted and fun. I trulely enjoyed everything about my stay, the land, the people and the home. I will have a piece of Maui always in my heart because of the amazing people that touched it at Maui Eco Retreat. This...

Raphael and Kutira's place is in a lovely secluded location, 20 mins away from some excellent restaurants and perched on cliffs over the ocean. The property is large and beautiful, but really needs care. Many of the plants need trimming and the property looks like it needs some love. For $200 a night, I had higher expectations of what the...

Amazing retreat, with a private waterfall and all of the amenities one could wish for. It is imperative to attend the shamanic nights and experience vulnerability and higher level communication. This spot did wonders for removing my attachment to technology and taught that there are more interesting ways to communicate. The rooms are amazing, depending on where you stay, we...

Thank you for your wonderful review. Having the luxury of sleeping in an electro-magnetic-free field can be the first step of exploring our attachment of technology. We hope to host you again at our magical green spot. A warm aloha from all of us.

We just had a fantastic stay at the Maui Eco Retreat. The beautiful setting is just remote enough to feel you are away from the mainstream, but not difficult to get to or to take an easy 15 minute drive to get supplies. There is a spiritual, eco, alternative vibe which you can participate in, or just do your own...

I loved this place, but not everyone would... It was pretty far-out in more ways than one, but some people like that, including me, not so much my partner... I loved the magic here and that we had a corner of the jungle almost to ourselves. We were lucky to have mostly dry weather, so we were able to hike/scale...

This is a very special place. Know what you're looking for when you choose it. If you want a "resort" experience with room service and luau's, this retreat is NOT for you. If you want to truly unplug, breathe jungle floral air, meet others in a shared living/dining space, hike to a secluded and private waterfall, shower in a rustic...

Never seen such a green place which at the same time provides every comfort you need! Everything is recycled as properly as possible and the power supply is 100% roof-top solar. There's a battery, so you'll never be in the dark. Still, they ask you to use energy responsibly (as you should anywhere else, but here you can experience why...

I've allowed myself some time to reflect on our experience, hoping to find something positive to say. This is it, view from front porch of Thai hale cottage was pretty, if a bit boring. That said, I regretted my choice as soon as we turned off the Hana highway and began the bone jarring journey downhill, literally and figuratively. After...

We are completely off-grid and you'll enjoy: solar power, delicious well water, temples to meditate, create or relax in. It is simply a very romantic setting. We offer luxurious and unique accommodations. Organic coconuts on-site and tropical fruits are available when in season. Choosing our place means you automatically lower your carbon footprint. When staying with us you are contributing to the sustainable green living movement that is expanding daily. Escape the tourist-filled places.
