Top Reasons to Stay at Bamboo Valley Inn
- Located on a gated property next to a bamboo forest, the inn is extremely private. There is little sign of Maui’s thriving tourist industry here—just lush greenery in a quiet, tropical valley.
- You’ll be less than a 10-minute drive from the popular Ho’okipa and Baldwin Beach Parks, five minutes from the restaurants of Haiku, and 10 minutes from the eateries and shops of Paia and Makawao.
- Fresh flowers and a complimentary breakfast are provided on your first day as a welcome gift.
- Both the bamboo-view suite and the Haleakala suite have two bedrooms and fully equipped kitchens, as well as wood-burning fireplaces and spacious, covered patios. The 1,100-square-foot bamboo-view suite overlooks the forest, whereas the 900-square-foot Haleakala suite offers views of the sunrise over the Haleakala volcano.
- The inn provides complimentary beach chairs, towels, coolers, and boogie boards for guests.
Maui, Hawaii: Gorgeous Beaches, Haleakala Volcano, and Seasonal Whale Watching
Voted the best island in the United States by readers of Condé Nast Traveler, Maui is one of the Pacific’s most beautiful spots and a favorite among Hollywood's elite. The town of Lahaina, along Maui’s western coast, served as Hawaii’s royal capital before 1845. Throughout the mid-19th century, it was known as a whaling town—Herman Melville sailed from Lahaina during this time, gathering inspiration for Moby-Dick. The humpback whales that were once hunted are now protected by the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, and their population has flourished. The seas around Lahaina boast some of the world’s best whale watching from December to May, when female humpbacks give birth in the warm Pacific waters.
Arguably, Maui's biggest attraction is Haleakala, the world's largest dormant volcano, which technically encompasses 75% of the island. A paved road leads up to Haleakala's summit, where you can stretch your legs and walk around the rim of the lunar-like volcanic crater. The towering peak is a playground for bicyclists, who coast down the slopes all the way to the beach town of Paia.
Elsewhere on the island, it’s a rite of passage to drive the Road to Hana, a 68-mile route that zigzags along the scenic northeastern coast with more than 600 hairpin curves. There are several points of interest along the way, including botanical gardens, tiny villages, and waterfall pools you can swim in.
