Kula Lodge Review
Don't expect a local look because it's out in the country—this lodge inexplicably resembles a chalet in the Swiss Alps, and units even have electric fireplaces—but it's charming and cozy in spite of the nontropical ambience, and a good spot for a short romantic stay. Units are in two wooden cabins; four have lofts in addition to the ample bed space downstairs. On three acres and surrounded by tropical gardens, the lodge has striking, expansive views of Haleakala and two coasts. The property has an art gallery and a protea store that will pack flowers for you to take home; next door is a gourmet and gift shop.
