About Maui Chocolate Tour

Unique Experiences & Commitment to Quality, Sustainability & Community

Located within the ahupua’a or traditional Hawaiian land division of Ku’ia, which lies in the moku (district) of Lāhaina, our farm began to take shape. Ten acres at a time, it was transformed into a verdant green by water flowing from the wao akua (literally “realm of the gods”) located in the upper reaches of Mauna Kahālāwai, more commonly known as the West Maui Mountains. We now have more than 8,000 trees spread across 20+ acres, with plans to expand to more than 60 within the next few years. Our farm provides the raw material for the world-class Ku’ia Estate chocolate. We were drawn to Ku’ia Estate due to their commitment to quality, sustainability and community, and we knew together we’d produce tours that are educational, enriching, and delicious!

A Must-Do!

The facility is as beautiful as it is functional. There's an open-air pavilion on the second floor offering
breathtaking 360-degree views of West Maui. The chocolate produced here is extremely high quality!
