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.
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:
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!
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.

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 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.
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.
