Please contact us regarding availability.

'Discover Aroma' at the Aromatherapy Foundation of Maui's aromatic botanical educational estate and farm.

Your accommodation at the Aromatherapy Foundation of Maui, a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, provides more than just a beautiful place to stay but equally important provides you with an educational opportunity to experience the world of aromatherapy with a stay on an aromatic botanical farm. You will be surrounded by about one-thousand aromatic plants, be able to roam the gardens and learn about the individual plants, make use of the in-house atomizers which will fill your unit with the fragrant and healthy aromatic scents, be able to attend the on-property aromatic distillations, enjoy the purest of aromatic body treatments and massage, participate in a hands-on nationally recognized scientific survey recording your specific impressions of various essential oils, and have the opportunity to peruse the literature provided within each unit and even if you wish take a beginners aromatic course which will provide you with a well-rounded introduction to the benefits and pleasures of aromatherapy.

Our belief here at the Aromatherapy Foundation of Maui is that there is tremendous potential provided by the aromatic plants that surround us in our environment to nourish us with good health and provide vitality and quality of life. Better than providing a rigid and formalized course, our tact is to immerse registrants directly into a lifestyle that is surrounded by many facets of aromatherapy which participants can appreciate in a fun and casual manner that fits your schedule. While enjoying the property, each person may incorporate a painless form of education and develop knowledge and skills that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. You may participate in as much of the program as you would like and we are confident that you will be leaving us with a better understanding and appreciation of the science of aromatherapy and how it may serve to make your life and those of your loved ones richer for the experience.

Everyone staying as overnight residents at the Aromatherapy Foundation of Maui will be asked to be a participant in a study involving essential oils that will require exactly five minutes a day to complete. (Special pricing will be inclusive for all Aromatherapy Foundation residents).

Please Call Us for Availability as our Calendar on this site is not always up to date. 808-573-8002. To enhance your understanding and educational experience, the Foundation has several facilities on the property that allow you to spend the night and enjoy the healing benefits of Aromatherapy, including treatments and applications that utilize Aromatherapy’s therapies. Obtain an in-depth understanding and appreciation for Aromatherapy while resting and recovering from your daily activities. The facilities on the property include the following:

Maui's 'Grand Villa' at the Aromatherapy Foundation of Maui provides guests with a charming accommodation and an exceptional opportunity to getaway and escape from the fast paced world. Our tranquil botanical garden of lavender, rosemary, geranium and other aromatics are sure to help you RELAX. Views are sensational and dramatic from every window in this elegantly decorated hideaway.

The six-bedroom Grand Villa is the perfect place for those wanting to relax, reconnect and rejuvenate or simply enjoy balanced quietude. After a day of exploring the mountain, relax in the large in-ground Jacuzzi under a colorful sunset sky.

The Grand Villa can accommodate as many as ten persons. The full kitchen with beautiful hand-crafted koa cabinets and gas stove is a chef's dream for creating delicious meals in your luxury abode. Or, should you want to take a break from the kitchen, delicious dining is just minutes away in fine Makawao restaurants.

The Aromatherapy Foundation of Maui [AFM] is a 501 c [3] non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to providing programs, education, training, workshops, therapies, scientific information, research, support and other activities and services to the public regarding the use and benefits of aromatherapy and aromatic horticulture.

2 Very Relaxing Days

  • 5 of 5
WE have been to the state of Hawaii many times and to Maui over a dozen. We have always stayed at condo or homes on the beach. Staying up country has always been something I wanted to try and this trip it was possible. And the Grand Villa is absolutely outstanding!

Yes a little cooler, but in our opinion (3 18 - 20 year old male and female and two 50 yo) it was well worth it. The pictures show the property accurately. If you love great craftsmanship, you will love the wood through the Grand Villa. Koa wood from local area, finished to the point it has the satin feel of fine furniture. There was everything we could have needed in the Villa. Large grilling deck, beautiful view from lanai off the master and the area around the pool and hot tub wonderful. The great couches and TV were perfect for the beginning of March Madness!

The view is outstanding. The relaxation is unending.: enjoy the shower in the unit.. but better yet, enjoy a massage at the spa next door complete with sauna and outdoor shower. It was the perfect way to relax on the day after travel from the Midwest.

Book it now.. you won't be disappointed!

Stunningly beautiful, wellmanaged and accessible to swimming, hiking, biking. True Aloha experience

  • 5 of 5
I have been twice to the Aromatherapy Foundation's accommodations on Maui, once to the romantic cottage (as a couple) and once to the Grand Villa (hosting a group of 8 midlife women for a Recalibrate Camp). If you are looking for a place to stay in Maui that is stunningly beautiful, well managed, and away from the ant swarm of tourists, but close enough to anything and everything in Maui, then this is your place. The Romantic cottage has everything that a couple would want: fully equipped kitchen, fabulous eating patio, laundry, gorgeous views from everywhere, and a superior spa on site that offers a multitude of spa services. The Grand Villa is perfect for a group or a family. Every bedroom is special and has a wonderful view, and the living area accommodates an easy flow of people eating, relaxing, chatting, and enjoying the lovely scents coming from the gardens. My group loved the layout of the villa because they could easily be social in the living areas or the hot tub or enjoy personal time in their beautiful rooms or one of the little nooks in the house or the gardens. Everyone loved being able to take advantage of the on-site Aromatherapy Spa. Many in my group were swimmers, so we took advantage of the Upcountry Aquatics Center that has two 25 meter pools and is only 10 minutes away in Pukalani. For those who like to run, walk, and bike, the property is situated on a wonderful upcountry loop road and is only a few miles from fabulous hiking. Doreena and Tom, the managers, are always available if anything is needed, but most everything one could need has already been thought of and is available. The entire property has a lovely feel to it. This is a special place full of the spirit of Aloha. If you want to be touched by Maui, this is the place to stay. You will be pleased you chose to stay here.

Wonderful upcountry stay away from it all.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 8 nights at the end of May and being our 6th+ visit to Maui, for the first time we decided to stay upcountry rather than in the resorts or condos on the beach. It was a great decision as we got to experience things we've never seen on the island before and the home was simply wonderful and well appointed. Pool, hot tub, steam room, double showers, very comfortable master bed, kitchen with it all and views that cannot be beat. The weather was a bit cooler up there (few degrees which I appreciated) and we had the typical mountain showers but never a washout.
A little bit of a drive to get up from Makawao and the roads get tight, but never too scary if you just take it slow. Bring ice from town for your first night so you don't have to drive back down to complete that PiñaColada or Mai Tai you want to enjoy after you unpack (blender is included with home!).
Plenty of space for our family of 4 (families twice as big would find it spacious!) and being closer to locales such as Paia, Haiku and the Road to Hana was nice.
I would highly recommend this home if you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity. Finally, I cannot forget to mention that the owners Tom and Doreena are great people who obviously take pride in their home, aroma garden and providing high class hospitality to all who come.

Such a wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5
You walk into the house through a beautiful wooden door with stain glass. When you arrive in your appartement your breath is taken away by the view of the meadows, the whole valley and the West Maui Mountains. You have the same view from the bathroom and downstairs from the living room and kitchen. The place is decorated with taste, everything natural, all beautiful wood details and floors. In addition to that a wonderful kitchen with everything you have at home. Outside you smell the Eukalyptus trees and you get and education about a lot of herbs, which are used for Aromatherapy. Also you can have a treatment right there and a message in the spa. Not to mention the wonderful owners Doreena and Tom.

The Grand Villa is located in the beautiful area of Olinda just a few miles above the quaint cowboy town of Makawao. The air at three-thousand feet is fresh and vibrant and the pine and eucalyptus forest above the house provide great hikes and adventures. The cottage is located on an aromatic farm and the mesmerizing scent of rose geranium and lavender is always present. A beautiful 20 minute drive down the hill will bring you to Baldwin Beach near Paia for swimming and beach time and two miles north of Paia are the famous windsurfing and kite-surfing beaches of Hookipa. Both Makawao and Paia provide excellent shopping and dining experiences.

Other Activities: horseback riding
