A cliffside healing retreat and adventure base camp with stunning ocean views, Hale Pali Ku defines the term "Rustic Elegance."
E Komo Mai is how the Hawaiians who lived on this very land 300 years ago would have welcomed you to this special place.
My name is Ryan, and I welcome you into the home my friends and I built from artifacts and ideas we collected from around the world. Hale Pali Ku's dramatic architecture, stunning view, and amazing artwork will be like nothing you've ever experienced. Here in the jungle, you will discover a different way of living... the way we call "local." In Hawaii, we remove our shoes at the front door. In Asian style, we enjoy the trade wind breeze through open doors and indoor/outdoor living, sleeping draped in the elegance of tropical netting, dreaming of slumber in the garden. We care for, or "Malama", the natural world which sustains us, respect local culture, and spread Aloha to everyone. Instead of looking for the things we don't have in life, we appreciate what we do have.
Calming Zen Lines - Stunning View - Dramatic Architecture
Hale Pali Ku's dramatic "Curved" roofline
Relax on the lanai with oceanview of Northshore
Hale Pali Ku is snugly perched on the pinnacle of a lush precipice, offering breathtaking views in every direction. Eating on the Asian dining platform, you overlook a verdant canopy of tropical trees, punctuated by the stunning orange blossoms of African tulip trees. Our skyline consists of Cook and Norfolk Island Pine silhouettes bordering the sapphire Pacific, which seamlessly melts into the endless horizon. Hale Pali Ku is a Polynesian inspired vacation villa that was built with rich woods, bamboo and tender care. Thoughtfully decorated in a palette of warm, comforting colors and sensuous furnishings, you'll slumber in peaceful Zen surroundings and wake to a symphony of exotic birdsong.
Connect with nature in a way you've only dreamed in our outdoor shower. Refresh your skin under a cascade of hot water while a whisper of breeze caresses you.

Select vegetables from the Organic Garden
Because we grow much of the food we eat at Hale Pali Ku, we show our gratitude for Mother Nature's gifts by giving back. While our kitchen is outfitted with top-of-the-line stainless steel refrigerator/freezer and full-size gas stove, we remain eco-friendly by not utilizing a disposal or dishwasher. Instead we make compost from our organic waste to nourish our garden and employ a deep copper sink to wash dishes. Copper is functional because it is antibacterial.
Hale Pali Ku offers a 2,000 square foot lanai to enjoy the best of outdoor living. Rain or shine, you'll luxuriate in the views from hammock, futon and Japanese dining platform. The cleanest air rolls in directly from the rugged Pacific. Nestled among lush palms and fruit trees, the lanai's privacy invites provocative moments. Allow the sun to wrap you in its warm embrace and the moon to be your aphrodisiac.
Comfort is paramount. The unique design of this 2,750 square foot home features hammocks, outdoor futons, a king sized bed, 2 queen size beds, 2 bathrooms, outside showers, and a hot tub.
The Kuiaha Suite: provides privacy and amazing ocean view
This 1,600 sq ft. second level suite offers a master bedroom and loft that also has a built in bed nook with a stained glass window. Seamless boundaries are created throughout, as the carved teak wall slides open between the master bedroom and living room. Similarly, custom accordion glass doors slide open to create a 16 ft. opening between the living room and 600ft. lanai. Once on the lanai, lounge on the custom Balinese dining platform and gaze over the hot tub and jungle to see ships pass in the distance and whales jump! Three stained glass windows, seven carved Balinese doors, a carved marble outdoor shower, Moroccan lighting, hardwood throughout, all windows custom milled with mitered glass corners, copper sink, and art built into each nook and cranny.
The Humuhumunukunukuapua'a Suite: provides grassy area with ocean view
The HumuHumu Suite has ocean views from your bed, and walk in closets. The unit features amazing attention to artistic detail, with Balinese carvings, tile mosaics, and art built into each nook. With tropical indoor/outdoor living, all rooms have large double doors which open onto a 1,000 sq. ft. covered lanai, and manicured lawn beyond that. The unit has a tropical jungle outdoor rain head shower and features a stand up barbecue on the patio.
Enjoy the dramatic view from our "Spa Bungalow Terrace", situated below the main house. Here you'll find a hot tub, small pond, and a little man made beach with a fire pit. During the night, enjoy campfires under Maui's starry sky, to the sounds of acoustic guitar. In the bungalow, we offer a variety of massage treatments for your relaxation pleasure.
The Botanical Garden:
Our botanical garden has over 100 fruit trees and many rare native Hawaiian plants. Examples of a few of our exotic tropical fruit trees are Jaboticaba, Bread Fruit (staple Polynesian food), Cacao (chocolate), Mountain Apple, Noni (cancer fighting), Mangosteen (high in antioxidents), Cinnamon, etc. We feature one native Lobelia - so rare, it is now extinct in the wild. Hale Pali Ku also has a vegetable garden you may harvest from when making delectable meals on your Maui Vacation.
Tucked away in the jungle, yet walking distance to an outdoor cafe and shops, Hale Pali Ku is truly unique. We are perched above a jungle ravine that meets the ocean a half mile away in a secret bay for picnics, we are five minutes drive to the ocean, and ten minutes to the famous "Ho'okipa" beach and the beach town of Paia.
