This listing features our elegant and cozy Bamboo Temple. Our Bamboo Temple is both unique and historic. It is the first permitted bamboo structure in the entire United States. Built in the shape of a nautilus, this geometric form evokes tranquility and sacredness. Stone staircases lead to a large deck, and expansive windows looking out to the sea and the famous Hana coastline. The bamboo ceiling features a rooftop prism shaped window that crowns the centerpiece of the room, the bed. We are pioneers in researching sustainable lumber, the path to an ecological sustainable future.
From the bed, you can gaze at the stars at night or watch the sunrise over the ocean. This incredibly romantic shelter, which features a full kitchen equipped with gas stove, huge closet, and very private Hawaiian outdoor shower, it is one of the best kept secrets for honeymooners from around the globe. Come celebrate your new adventure or find peace and solitude in this rejuvenating and ground-breaking haven.

ABOUT OUR PROPERTY:
All of our buildings are ecologically built and are often adorned with spiritual art and hand-crafted masterpieces from Pacific and Asian countries. The bamboo temple has an especially stunning ocean view that invites you to gaze at the moon or seduces you to meditate with our spectacular sunrise. We are surrounded by lush jungle, ponds, flower gardens, fruit trees, and a nearby waterfall (reached by a short downhill climb) which flows into natural pools for swimming from which you can gaze upon the breath-taking view of the valley.
Our land is a wonderful place to wander and explore: you can take a short walk passing the chickens, the homes of our bees, countless species of flowers and plants and stop by our temples, where you can rest, relax and meditate. For the adventurer, our ocean trail is a moderately challenging cliff trail and the hike takes about a half an hour to get down to the ocean. You will enjoy the wild beauty and the untouched nature of this piece of rural Maui, which is occasionally visited by dolphins and turtles, and in the wintertime, the whales can be spotted breaching from your bed. But be sure to prepare with a good pair of hiking shoes, some snacks and feel your feet, the trail can be very slippery after a heavy rain.
Enjoy the benefits of a setting that is free from electromagnetic waves such as Wi-Fi. However, if you have a need to check your emails or need to surf the net you are welcome to do so in our main house anytime and meet some interesting guests from around the world.
If you have any special needs or request we are very happy to point you in the right directions. We have lived on Maui over 30 years and maybe able to support you in your quest.
We offer YOGA Monday through Friday mornings with a suggested $10 donation direct to the teacher. We also offer qi gong, shamanic night teaching once a week, meditation, personal coaching, onsite lomi-lomi massage, as well as other special events and activities. If you would like to get married on Maui, Kutira is a licensed wedding officiant by the State of Hawaii and would love to support you in for this special event.
