Our Dolphin Room, located on the first floor of the Opua House with a shared bathroom. A sliding glass door opens to a stunning Brazilian pepper tree, with views of the lotus pond and ocean. Named after the legendary dolphin scientist Dr. John C. Lilly, who loved spending time here, the room features some of his books and even the spirit of the Dolphins. This room inspires you to journey inside, maybe even write in your journal, and invites you to explore the abundant nature around you. It is a wonderful place to come home to.

ABOUT OUR PROPERTY:
All of our buildings are ecologically built and are often adorned with spiritual art and hand-crafted masterpieces from Pacific and Asian countries. We are surrounded by lush jungle, ponds, flower gardens, fruit trees, and a nearby waterfall (reached by a short downhill climb) which flows into natural pools for swimming from which you can gaze upon the breath-taking view of the valley.
Our land is a wonderful place to wander and explore: you can take a short walk passing the chickens, the homes of our bees, countless species of flowers and plants and stop by our temples, where you can rest, relax and meditate. For the adventurer, our ocean trail is a moderately challenging cliff trail and the hike takes about a half an hour to get down to the ocean. You will enjoy the wild beauty and the untouched nature of this piece of rural Maui, which is occasionally visited by dolphins and turtles, and in the wintertime, the whales can be spotted breaching from your bed. But be sure to prepare with a good pair of hiking shoes, some snacks and feel your feet, the trail can be very slippery after a heavy rain.
