My husband and I spent 3 nights here at the end of our trip to Maui and selected Travaasa based on the reviews we read here. First of all, it is the only resort option on this quiet side of the island, certainly a big plus. And the layout and grounds are simply beautiful. We chose to stay in a Garden Suite rather than a Sea Ranch cottage, which I guess was a big mistake. Granted, our suite was beautiful - simply and comfortably decorated with all the amenities we could have asked for. The only problem became apparent the first evening when we realized that we were in fact just a few feet from the Hana Highway, and there is a surprising amount of traffic on that road especially early in the morning. Forget being able to sleep past 6 AM. Since we had all the windows open, cars sounded like they were about to drive right through our room. And by the way, lack of air-conditioning is not a problem, even up next to the road there are always cooling ocean breezes.
The staff at the hotel couldn't have been nicer and service in the dining room was excellent both at breakfast and dinner. We spent a few hours at the beautiful pool on both days we were there and practically had the place to ourselves. Couldn't ask for better.
Our only other disappointment was the lack of variety on the dinner menu. The menu is limited and did not change on the 3 days we were there, so we found ourselves having the same dinner twice. The staff did tell us they usually have specials, but not during the weekend we were there.
I would certainly go back to Travaasa, but I would be more careful about room selection the next time around.
