This New Year’s Eve, skip the crowded dance clubs, the cold weather and the tired traditions, and opt for a totally different scene—one that involves the lull of the ocean, exotic Hawaiian music and sparkling fireworks exploding over endless waves.

At Travaasa Hana on the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii, our New Year’s Eve celebration includes a escape to paradise, wonderful views, and a colorful fireworks display at the stroke of midnight. It’s the perfect beginning to a whole new year. Not to mention, when you spend your holiday with us, you’ll also have a head-start on your New Year’s resolutions. Eating healthy, learning something new and getting in shape will be easy when you participate in activities like our juicing class, hula dancing lessons, yoga and horseback riding.

Leave the ball-drop behind, and discover a whole new way to start 2013.
