One of the most interesting structures in all of Maui, the Kula Lodge is perched on the slopes of Haleakala in cool Kula.
The views from the dining room and the many private lanai’s are incredible. You can be enjoying a good steak while watching the clouds pass over the distant West Maui Mountains and watch the surf break on the South Shores. Most of the Central Valley can be seen as well as the neighboring islands of Lanai and Kahoolawe.
While you wait for a table, you can sit by the old fire place or enjoy the art of Curtis Wilson Cost at the gallery below. When the weather is warmer, you can enjoy the outside area, which is in itself worth coming to see.
Intricately laid brickwork make up multiple perches with tables organically woven down the hill with a small stream as its seam. Kula is much cooler than the rest of the island with its high altitude. Staying at the lodge is reasonably priced and offers an area not often explored by visitors.
Upcountry Maui has beautiful forests, long rolling pastures, and unique views.
