Entabeni Cottage is located above the world famous "Road to Hana" overlooking a wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean on the Hawaiian Island of Maui.
Our gentle climate massages the body and soul of visitors who come to enjoy our tropical paradise.
In the Zulu language in South Africa, entabeni means "the place on the hill with a view."
In addition to Entabeni Cottage, our 6.25 acre property features Entabeni Gardens with our exquisite collection of 400 varieties of tropical and sub-tropical plants. See the EntabeniGardens.com website.
