The Gaudí-esque architect responsible for Mama’s Fish House and its gracious interpretation of Old Polynesia also worked his magic on a handful of private suites and cottages next door. Amid the coconuts on a pocket-sized beach, the Inn at Mama’s features large private lanais with barbecues; imaginative Hawaiian artwork; fresh flowers tucked into large, fluffy bath towels; terrific toiletries; free laundry; and an easy stroll to Mama’s Fish House, what many consider to be the finest restaurant on Maui. Each unit is unique; the luxury junior suites are especially classy, with deep soaking tubs and travertine showers. One- and two-bedroom cottages sit amid the tropical garden’s red ginger, while a few twobedroom units face the ocean. The solid, upscale furnishings define casual elegance, with a few splashes of coral, teal, and other tropical color among neutral upholstery and dark woven chairs and side tables. Although restaurant guests stroll about the property until 10pm, privacy is assured in your cottage’s large enclosed lanai. In the morning, you’ll be greeted with a tray of fresh fruit and banana bread. The inn sits on a small, sandy beach known simply as Mama’s. It’s better for exploring tide pools than for swimming—though Baldwin Beach is a short drive away and the thrills of Hookipa are right next door. Keep in mind that this is the windward side of the island—it’s often windy and rainy. You’ll be perfectly situated here for a trip to Hana.
