Hana is commonly known as the “Last Hawaiian Place.” Step back into the charm and casual elegance of old Hawai’i in an authentic plantation cottage in Hana. Once used to house workers from the sugar cane plantations, this 1930’s cottage, named Hale Ulu Lulu, underwent a major rebuilding (completed in early 2005) and is now completely restored with attention to historic detail while providing every modern convenience. We have designed an open and airy 900 square foot layout with spectacular ocean and pastoral views from every room. Your eyes will delight on the beautiful Brazilian Mahogany floors, vintage feeling bath with dual sided claw foot tub, granite kitchen counters with Koa wood bar counter and trim accents. A sliding panel of framed Tapa cloth between the bedroom and living area allows you to relax in bed to the incredible view or, when closed, to have complete privacy from the rest of the house. The furnishings are classic and comfortable with a Missionary antique and Asian influence. We have designed the cottage with warm tropical colors, original local artwork, Hawaiian antiques and Polynesian exotica. Though the house has a tasteful and elegant décor, you can still put your feet on the furniture and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. You will arrive to rooms filled with brilliant tropical floral arrangements, 100% cotton high quality linens and towels and handmade soaps – fine details on par with the finest luxury hotel. Hale Ulu Lulu is part of a sprawling two-acre property surrounded by gracious lawns and verdant tropical gardens and foliage.
The Guest Houses at Malanai are named after the gentle cooling breeze , (named Malanai) known for this area of Hana. We are located just three miles outside of Hana Town in the Maka’alae district, which is considered the most highly desired area of Hana. You are sure to fall in love with the picturesque and pastoral landscape, the ever-changing ocean colors and the gentle sound of the waves lulling you to sleep at night. Walk 15 minutes to the world famous Hamoa beach or 12 minutes in the other direction to the Venus pool- two of Hana’s most desired attractions – practically in our back yard!
