All guest rooms feature private bathrooms with river rock shower floors and Japanese tansus, luxurious pillow top mattresses, plush Italian bed sheets and towels, hair dryers, ipod docking stations, wi-fi, mini refrigerators, and in-room safes.  Marisa would describe Lumeria's accommodations as "rustic elegance"

What time does the coffee start brewing?
An all-important question!  Coffee is available in the dining room starting at 6am.

What does breakfast consist of?
Breakfast is buffet style and features yogurt, tropical fruit, muffins, toasted breadstuffs and toppings, sometimes a hot cereal and sometimes boiled eggs and whatever other goodies the chef has up her sleeve that day.  A regular ala carte hot breakfast is available for order at your own expense.

Can Lumeria Maui accommodate my dietary restrictions?
Most of the time, yes, with enough notice.  If you have dietary restrictions, be sure to let us know when you register.

Is there cell service at Lumeria/around Maui?
Yes. However, it is not consistent. If you find a sweet spot, remember it :-)  And, don't forget to pack your charger, as your batteries will get a workout.

Is there WiFi at Lumeria Maui?
Yes.

What is NOT included in my retreat?
You are on your own for lunch each day. Lumeria does serve lunch and there are many wonderful restaurants around the island.  Additional excursions, meals, snacks, bodywork, etc are not included in your retreat but may be purchased on your own.  Tips are also at your discretion.

Is alcohol consumption and smoking permitted at Lumeria?
Yes.  Smoking in designated areas only, please.

Do I need to rent a car?
We strongly recommend that you rent a car.  There are many great attractions around Maui and having your own wheels will allow you to explore whereever you like.  There are taxis available from the airport, if you choose not to rent a car, for approximately $35. Scooters are also available to rent in nearby Paia.  If you would like to share a rental, let us know and we will put an email out to the group.
