Kula Means “Open Country” – It Also Offers Abundant Open Spaces
Part of the Upcountry region of Maui, Kula is a quaint, rustic area on the slopes of Haleakala. Located in the central part of the island, Kula is also at the center of Maui’s culinary resurgence. Most of the exotic produce served at Maui’s best restaurants is grown right here in the rich, volcanic soil.
Rustic Farms and Local Produce
If your guests are in a rustic mood, there are many farm tours to be had. With all the space available on Kula’s properties, you can have gardens galore and your own veggies. Let the chef cook them up into a truly fresh gourmet meal at Oo Farm or walk among the sugar canes and raise a glass to sustainable farming practices at Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Distillery, producers of OCEAN Vodka. If flowers are your thing, smell the sweet lavender and marvel at the stunning views at the Alii Kula Lavender Farm. There are also coffee blossoms at Shim Coffee and blooms aplenty on the Protea Farm Tour. The region is also home to the Kula Botanical Gardens, filled with blooming carnations, birds of paradise and orchids.
Best Upcountry Views
Make sure to check out Kula’s most notable landmark, the brilliant white, octagonal Holy Ghost Church. A gift from the king and queen of Portugal to the island’s Portuguese plantation workers in 1894, it has been recently restored. Kula also offers homeowners the best views in Upcountry Maui, with sweeping views of Maui and the Pacific Ocean.
