Our favourite rooms
There are only 24 rooms, and all are connected in a horseshoe shape, with access to the shared lanai out back. Honeymooners should choose Suite 1, at the end of the property, which has the most privacy, along with an especially comfortable four-poster bed. Otherwise, opt for rooms along the north side of the horseshoe; 1 and 2 have forest views, with glimpses of the ocean in the distance.
The outdoor swimming pool is a nature-inspired saltwater pool with clear views out to the ocean. This is not an oceanfront resort, but the beach is only three miles away.
Leave the yoga mat at home. Lumeria has plenty available for anyone who wants to stretch out in a daily Anusara class. Though the ocean is three miles away, the shore of surrounding Pai’a is known for great surf, so wave-catchers should bring necessary gear.
Lumeria works with cleanse experts to offer signature diet cleanses tailored to individual needs, with optional hydrotherapy treatments and coaching.
Leave them at home: this serene, meditative space would be uncomfortable for little ones.
Very much so. The kitchen staff grow most of their own produce, or source from a 10-mile radius, and all food waste is composted. The property is nearing energy independence, with a reliance on solar and wind power.
