    One Day with Rôamori

    The Aloha Soul adventure retreat sparkles with uncommon and inspiring experiences rooted in Hawaiian culture.

    Each Day is designed using our Spirit of Discovery Philosophy to include: Wisdom, Adventure, Connection & Delight. 

    Here's a glimpse of a typical day with Rôamori:

    The day starts with a delicious and nourishing breakfast crafted by our in-house chef using fresh, local ingredients. You sip your morning coffee and enjoy breakfast on the lanai, where you have a front row seat to watch as the sun rises out of the ocean and into the sky.

    We begin today' s adventure by dipping our toes into the waters of Wai'anapanapa black sand beach — a pristine example of this unique volcanic phenomenon. The sand and pebbles were formed by lava creating a rich, black hue unlike any other.

    From the beach, we hike leisurely along a section of The King's Trail — a centuries old footpath for ancient messengers that circumnavigates Maui. You Follow the trail along coastal cliffs with views of sea-worn lava arches, refreshing sprays of ocean mist, and 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean.

    Led by our Rôamori guide, you stop along the route to consider a unique grove of trees — one of the oldest wild hala groves in all of Hawaii, and learn about the important role lauhala (hala leaves) play in the Hawaiian culture. You learn the techniques for gathering leaves and venture into the grove to collect a few choice examples. This is the first step in the celebrated Hawaiian practice of lauhala weaving.

    Back at the retreat house, we delight in a mid-day meal together and talk story about the sights and sounds of the King's Trail.

    In the afternoon, you roll up your sleeves and sit side by side with cultural practitioners to understand the time honored techniques to clean and cut lauhala, preparing each leaf for weaving. You feel a connection to nature as you begin to transform each simple leaf into artwork and your creative juices start to flow. Later in the week, you will weave your own bangle bracelet using the prepared lauhala!

    As you walk back to the retreat house, the garden looks different somehow — each leaf and flower holding new potential and meaning. By transforming lauhala into a material for weaving, you have also transformed your view of the natural world around you.

    Night time begins to fall as you join your new friends around the dinner table for a fresh, delicious and wholesome meal. You smile and think, "They call this Heavenly Hāna for a reason!"
