Welcome to Ala Kukui


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, situated on 12 lush tropical acres in the picturesque East Maui community of Hāna, 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 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.”
