Lumeria MauiThe north shore of Maui is one of my favorite places in the world. Between the wacky beach town of Paia, the glorious organic farms of the Upcountry area and Haleakala herself, the area has a magical quality that's hard to match. What it doesn't have is a lot of places to stay for those who want a real Maui (vs. resort Maui) experience. There is the Paia Inn, located within walking distance of both local Baldwin beach and the restaurants in Paia -- including the wonderful Paia Fish Market and Flatbread Pizza, which lists the local farmers who provided that day's fare on the menu. And there are small B&Bs and home rentals available through Homeaway.com or VRBO.com. For a long time that was about it. But now there's an offering for those who want a location -- and much more -- between the beaches of Paia and the Upcountry town of Makawao: Lumeria Maui.

Lumeria MauiThe brainchild of founder Xorin Balbes, who saw potential in the historic buildings that originally housed retired plantation workers, Lumeria Maui has been beautifully restored and turned into a boutique inn and retreat center with 24 guest rooms, a yoga studio, a farm-to-table-focused dining room and -- naturally -- gorgeous gardens. Complimentary offerings for those staying at Lumeria Maui include an organic breakfast, daily meditation, yoga, classes that include a series of horticulture programs and weekly garden tours -- and, after March 15, a new pool. Special events and workshops -- including Lumeria's signature Glow Cleanse -- are also offered throughout the year. For more information, call 855-579-8877 or visit LumeriaMaui.com
