Located on 12 lush tropical acres in the picturesque East Maui community of Hāna, Ala Kukui is one of the premier retreat centers in Hawai’i. Founded in 2002, Ala Kukui (“Pathway to the Light”) is a 501(c)(3) organization that hosts non-denominational retreats, workshops, classes, meetings, Hawaiian cultural programs and other events. Our property includes an elegant 4-bedroom/3-bathroom main Retreat House, two 2-bedroom/2-bathroom cabins, a 720 square-foot studio ideal for classes and workshops and a certified commercial kitchen. Ala Kukui’s offerings include: veterans retreats; yoga and meditation retreats; silent and healing retreats; corporate retreats; family retreats; writing and gardening retreats; workshops and classes; public programs featuring leading scholars and Hawaiian practitioners; traditional Hawaiian arts and crafts workshops and classes; and meetings for individuals and groups.

Awe-inspiring views of the Pacific Ocean and the majestic peaks of Haleakalā combine with the hospitality of Hana’s Hawaiian community to make a stay at Ala Kukui a one-of-a-kind experience that guests have called “magnificent, stunning and A-plus.” In 2013, CNN named Ala Kukui among “10 of the world’s best meditation retreats.
