April 30, 2011--The owner of the Hotel Hana-Maui is renaming the property and changing to an all-inclusive pricing model that covers accommodations, meals, spa services and activities for its guests.
Starting in June, the hotel will be known as the Travaasa Hana, one of two "Travaasa Destination" properties operated by Denver-based Green Tea LLC. The other hotel is the Travaasa Austin, which opened April 14 near Austin, Texas.
Green Tea, a unit of privately held Amstar Group, said it plans to add additional properties to the Travaasa brand in "desirable ocean, desert, rainforest and mountain locales."
Amstar Group, a real estate investment and development company, bought the Hotel Hana-Maui a year ago, becoming the third owner of the hotel in a year and a half.
All-inclusive rates at Travaasa Hana will start at $595 per person. Under the current pricing structure, room rates start at $325 for double occupancy. The 70-room hotel is on 69 acres along the East Maui coastline, with accommodations in bungalows and cottages.
Amstar bought the hotel in April 2010 from the Ohana Hotel Co. LLC. Ohana had acquired the property in 2009 from California-based Passport Resorts. Passport had owned the hotel since 2001.
