Designed by Honolulu architect H.R. Kerr, our property holds its own unique heritage: The original Fred C. Baldwin Memorial Home was built in 1910 by the Baldwin sugar cane family. Originally designed to house aging plantation managers and laborers who had dedicated much of their lives to work the cane fields, the property and buildings have been used for a range of purposes since the early 1900’s. At the beginning of World War II, it was commissioned by the military for housing. By the 1950s and 1960s the site was repurposed again as additional dormitory housing for the nearby Maunaolu Women’s College, and most recently, it was used as a dormitory for Maui Land and Pineapple workers.
Inspired by the history and the rare courtyard design, designer Xorin Balbes fell instantly in love with the authentic feeling of the property, its location on the island and the remarkable buildings it possessed. Balbes felt it would be the perfect setting for an educational yoga retreat center, and embarked on an extensive renovation and rehabilitation. Today, the property is listed in The National Registry of Historic Places and is one of the largest historic renovations on the island of Maui. By honoring the past while implementing innovative designs, Lumeria Maui was born as the most beautiful boutique retreat on all of the Hawaiian islands.
Lumeria Maui is currently owned by MRC Partners, LLC and managed by Filament Hospitality Group.
