Getting to your Roamori Aloha Soul Retreat in Hana, Island of Maui, Hawaii

Getting to Hāna, Island of Maui, Hawai'i

Where is Hāna? Hāna is on the southeastern "backside" of Maui, in the shadow of Haleakalā. Nestled into a lush, tropical rain forrest and dotted along rugged lava shores, Hāna is one of the most isolated communities in the state of Hawai'i.

View Hāna on the map HERE

    There are 3 WAYS to get to Hāna:

    The Road to Hna is one of the most beautiful and exciting roads in the world. With 59 bridges, 620 curves, countless roadside waterfalls, and breath-taking views, getting to Hna is an adventure of its own!

      1. Take the Rôamori Shuttle: Fly into Kahului Airport (OGG) on Maui and join the Rôamori group for the drive along the Road to Hāna.  The shuttle departs Sunday at 2:45 PM from the Commuter Terminal at Kahului Airport (OGG). The drive is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes.  The Rôamori shuttle is included in your trip free of charge.  Contact us to RSVP for the shuttle.
      2. Drive Yourself: Experience the adventure of the Road to Hāna at your own pace! Fly into Kahului Airport (OGG) on Maui and rent a car. Start bright and early Sunday morning to spend the day observing waterfalls and enjoying quaint roadside stands as you make your way to Hāna.  Contact us for a recommended itinerary. Please arrive at the retreat on Sunday at 6:15 PM for the welcome ceremony. Note, there is no rental car facility in Hāna; you will need to rent a car for the duration of your stay and return it to Kahului.
      3. Enjoy the View from the Air: Fly into Kahului Airport (OGG) on Maui and book a connecting flight on Mokulele Airlines directly to Hāna Airport (HNM). This flight departs the Kahului Airport (OGG) Commuter Terminal Sunday at approximately 5:15 PM, and arrives in Hāna around 5:36 PM. Check www.mokuleleairlines.com for availability and schedules, which vary seasonally. Mokulele requires check-in 30 minutes before departure; We recommend a 1 hour and 30 minute layover to collect checked bags, transfer terminals and check into Mokulele. We'll pick you up at the Hāna airport by 6:15 PM.

    Returning Home From Hāna

    The Rôamori shuttle offers return service on Saturday at the conclusion of the Experience Aloha women's retreat:

    • Flights departing from Hāna Airport (HNM):  We will drop off at the Hāna Airport (HNM) at 7:30 AM on Saturday.  Please note, if you choose to depart from Hāna on the morning flight you may miss the closing circle activity. We do not offer shuttle service for the evening flight.
    • Flights departing from Kahului Airport (OGG): We will drop off at the Kahului Airport (OGG) at 4:00 PM on Saturday. If you'd like to take the shuttle back to Kahului, schedule your departure flight on Saturday to depart from Kahului Airport (OGG) after 6:00 PM.

    Travel Arrangements

    If you need help making your travel arrangements, we can recommend a travel agent who is well-versed in the Rôamori experience to book your flights and even offer assistance with add-on excursions before or after your Experience Aloha Retreat. Contact us for a travel agent recommendation.

    Hāna is a Rain Forest

    Each area of Hawai'i has its own distinct rainfall. Hāna's unique rain is called Noe Noe - a light, misty rainfall that softly nourishes the lush landscape and fills the countless waterfalls. 

    Since it's a tropical location, Hāna receives rain daily. Most often, it is a beautiful, light rain that waters the plants and landscape; occasionally, it's a powerful storm with big personality. Either way, you'll be happy that you packed a light rain jacket, waterproof bag for electronics during outings and a light layer for the evening when the high humidity can cool the air. 

    The lodge is stocked with umbrellas if we need them. 

    You can expect a combination of sun and clouds. The changing mood of the sky is one of the many, beautiful mysteries of Hāna. 

    Heavy rainfall brings mosquitoes. If you are favored by these pests, consider packing DEET-free mosquito repellant and lightweight, long layers for evening dinners, which will be enjoyed outside. 

    How to Pack

    Average temperatures in Hāna are 68-88 F, with regular light rain and an occasional storm. Hāna is, after all, nestled into a rain forest! We suggest the following items in your suitcase:

    • Lounge wear for seated classroom activities, exploring the grounds and relaxing at the retreat house with light, long layers for cool evening breezes.
    • Hiking clothes including boots or sturdy athletic shoes for leisurely trail hiking on uneven surfaces.
    • One outfit to get muddy: shorts and tank top — if we are able to tour and volunteer at a local taro patch during your visit, we will be knee high in muddy water.
    • Beachwear, plus a bathing suit if you care to swim at the beach
    • Sun protection – reef friendly sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat
    • Light backpack to carry your hiking essentials – water, snack, light layer, reef friendly sunscreen, etc. based on your personal preferences.
    • Waterproof pouch for phone or camera for rainy days or water oriented outings.
    • Light rain jacket
    • A reusable water bottle. As part of our commitment to the environment, we do not offer plastic, bottled water.
    • DEET-free mosquito repellant

      What to Wear

      The Hawaiian dress code is relaxed and easy. You can ditch the stilettos for flip flops and hiking shoes. Plus, many of our activities will be active (think: sweaty, dirty and hands on - it feels so good!) Pack clothes that are comfortable and will withstand a little sweat, dirt and activity all in good fun.

      Dinners are often outdoors, intimate and casual affairs - arrive at the dinner table dressed however makes you feel happy! 

      Alcohol

      Throughout your stay, you can expect a variety of non-alcoholic beverages like juice, tea, coffee and water available throughout the day.

      You are welcome to purchase and bring any alcoholic beverages you would like to enjoy during your stay.  Don't forget the mixers and supplies for any cocktails you would like to enjoy.

      We do not have a liquor license and do not provide alcoholic beverages, or the mixers and garnishes to create cocktails.

      If you arrive to Maui via Kahului Airport (OGG) and take our airport shuttle to Hāna, we'll make a stop at Tamura's Wine Shop & Liquor Store, a local favorite.  They offer a (very!) large selection of wine, liquor and mixers, including many local selections. 

      If you catch a connecting Mokulele flight directly into Hāna, you have two options:

      1. During your layover, catch a cab to Tamura's Wine Shop and Liquor Store, located at 199 Dairy Rd, Kahului, HI 96732 and approximately 10 minutes from the Kahului (OGG) Airport. Mokulele's flights operate as charters, and you can carry-on liquids of any size (confirm with carrier; policies may change). Please be advised that there is only one evening flight to Hāna, and Mokulele requires check in 30 minutes before departure.  If you miss your departure, you will need to find an alternate way to Hāna — on another flight the following day or by renting a car.
      2. Monday afternoon, there is time in the itinerary for the Rôamori van to stop at the Hāna Ranch Store in Hāna, which has a modest but efficient selection of wine, liquor and mixers. 

      Cheers!

      Roamori women's retreat accommodation in Hana, island of Maui, Hawaii

      Accommodations

      Our accommodations partner in Hāna is a locally run, 501c3 retreat center.  You can expect lovingly cared for grounds, clean facilities and comfortable accommodations in chic island style. Housekeeping will exchange sheets and towels once during your stay.

      All rooms are twin-shared accommodations, with a roommate. If you are traveling with a friend and would like to room together, please indicate this in the notes section at check out.  Both individuals must include each other's names at check out. If you'd like a private room, please contact us for single-occupancy rates.

      Hāna is a remote town with limited resources and services. In the unlikely instance that a facilities or maintenance issue occurs, repairs may take more patience than you're accustomed to, as parts and/or service technicians may be located in Kahului, Maui — several hours away.

      Island Living

      Island style embodies indoor-outdoor living. When the doors are open, sometimes the outside comes in for a visit. You can expect a few creatures, such as geckos (small tropical lizards), spiders, and insects, to make an occasional appearance indoors. Sometimes even a small critter, such as a mouse, may sneak in through an open door. We peacefully coexist or escort unwelcome visitors out.

      Mosquitos

      Hāna is a lush, tropical location which receives regular rainfall.  It is a rain forrest, after all! Rainfall brings mosquitos.  If you are favored by these pests, consider packing mosquito repellant and lightweight, long layers for meals which may be enjoyed outside.

      WiFi & Cell Service

      The Retreat House and Bungalows are technology free spaces to enhance relaxation and social connection.  WiFi is available at the main building on property M-F 9AM-4PM.

      Hāna is a remote, tropical location and cell service is spotty.  Come prepared to unplug and be fully present during this soul-stirring experience.

      Tipping

      For all activities included in the itinerary, tipping is not necessary.

      If you feel compelled to share your gratitude for the experience with a gift of thanks, consider making a donation to one of our non-profit partners.  Let us know if you'd like to do this and we'll assist with arrangements.

      Tips are appropriate at your discretion for add-on services such as massages, or third party excursions not included in the itinerary.

      What's Not Included?

      Airfare, alcohol, any additional activities such as day tours, car rental, spa treatments, shopping, and personal expenses, which are not included in the package price.

      Travel Insurance

      Even when safety is your first priority, accidents can happen! All retreat participants are required to purchase Travel Insurance which includes coverage for medical, accidents and emergencies up to $100,000. World Nomads offers travel insurance solutions that cover the type of active experiences we will enjoy.

      Emergencies

      Hāna Town is equipped with a police station, fire department and health center. 

      Hāna is one of the most isolated communities in the state of Hawai'i, and cell service is spotty.  In case of emergency, there is a land line at the retreat house and main building.  In case of emergency, dial 911.
