Upcountry Maui - No Snorkel Shops & Tourist Traps

November 21, 2009

Kula lodge mapLast week I shut down my computer, turned off the office lights and joined my friend from the mainland in exploring Maui - my island home.

I am “lucky I live Hawaii” and need to take advantage of all the sights and beauty the island has to offer. I have lived here 20 years and still have not seen/done everything.

We began our adventure by heading “upcountry” - up Haleakala Crater to enjoy the beauty of the rolling hills, cows & horses as well as the small towns of Makawao and Paia.

After cruising around - (I tell people just drive up the hill and try to get lost - its an island, the road goes in a circle! ) we planned our trip to dine at the Kula Lodge Restaurant. On the weekends the Kula Lodge Garden Terrace features a wood fired oven baking some of the best pizza on the island. Be sure to sit outside in the garden where the views of the entire west side of Maui are spectacular!

Kula Lodge is a small, rustic & romantic hideaway that was built in the 1940’s as a private residence. Kula Lodge and Restaurant hugs the mountainside and blends with the astonishing ambience of Upcountry Maui.

The area on Maui known as Kula is the undiscovered Maui, like an unexpected gift that is a joy toProtea Flowers open for the adventurous traveler willing to get off the beach and explore the island. You won’t find tourist traps or snorkel shops. Instead you will find a peaceful and relaxing area of Maui where the Protea flowers are absolutely huge, there is virtually no traffic and life moves at a slow pace.

Kula Lodge also features the Curtis Wilson Cost Art Gallery as well as Kula Marketplace which is filled with local crafts, locally grown vegetables and home made gifts. Plan on spending a few relaxing hours meandering around the destination known as Kula Lodge. The ultimate treat would be to stay overnight at Kula Lodge. Five rustic chalets are available for rent and are a great starting point to begin your journey to the sunrise at Haleakala National Park or end your roadtrip after visiting Hana or Maui’s Ulupalakua Winery.

Vaulted ceilings add a spacious feel and the large lanai, accessible from both the great room and the master bedroom, faces the magnificent Pacific Ocean.
