Paia, HI (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
Lumeria Maui, the new wellness, adventure and educational travel retreat, opened in 2012 and quickly became a recognized Hawaiian destination for yoga, healing, personal transformation and authentic cultural experiences. Xorin Balbes, founder and designer, is pleased to announce three new additions; an outdoor saltwater pool and spa, a yoga/meeting pavilion and Maui’s newest suite, the Ali’i suite, an 1,100 square foot luxurious sanctuary overlooking ocean and island views and designed with an international array of furnishings and accessories fit for a king. Additionally, the suite offers many amenities including its own private chef and kitchen, private yoga and massage treatments. The suite will compete for Maui’s best accommodation that incorporates a conscious spiritual connection to the spirit of Aloha.
The original structure, built in 1909, was a historic plantation estate and was masterfully renovated utilizing sustainable building materials to preserve the natural flow and energy of Maui’s sacred land. Lumeria Maui’s highly anticipated outdoor pool area now offers guests a quiet, secluded saltwater refuge surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. The yoga pavilion is strategically placed by the Whispering Pine forest overlooking the gulch with ocean views. Arched copper ceilings create a temple like feel inside the large open space accommodating 60 people for yoga classes or 100 people in classroom style seating. The singular Ali’i royal suite is the property’s gem with its spacious, open floor plan totaling 1,100 square feet of space. The Ali’i suite features a full service kitchen and expansive private lanai for outdoor dining and lounging. Lumeria Maui is celebrating the additions with two new exciting signature packages; The Lumeria Ali’i Royal Escape and Lumeria’s Yoga, Vines and Farm to Table Tour.
