Seminar Rooms

Hale Akua Garden Farm has two lecture rooms one small and one large where teachers can present Powerpoint slides and movies on any topic.  In the picture above, Lauren Russert of the USDA Hawaii is presenting in our larger lecture room on different types of bees found on the islands.


Our Beautiful Seminar Rooms

Hale Akua’s Larger Seminar Room

Hale Akua Garden Farm’s large lecture room can accommodate up to 85 students studying yoga, communication,near death experiences, gardening, nutrition- whatever related topics are being presented. This number would include people from Maui. Retreat leaders are invited to call us about making arrangements for their students. Between our facility and those of our partnering neighbors we can easily accommodate up to 60 students.
The main meeting room is 1,050 square feet. It has a sealed bamboo floor, mirrors, high quality sound equipment, video projector, sliding screen doors, skylights, ceiling fans and adjustable lighting in all areas. Many folding chairs and back jacks are available for use in the main meeting room.Group in process smaller
For larger seminars, we recommend the main dining area near the pool. We have two indoor dining areas next to our large kitchen. The indoor dining area pictured above can accommodate at least 30 people eating at any one time. The outdoor area can hold 30 people eating at any one time as well.


Our Smaller Classroom and Lounge at the Villa

Our smaller classroom and lounge at the Villa overlooks a spectacular view-30 miles of untouched Hawaiian coastline-clearly an inspirational view for students. If you walk out to the railing by the gorge at a break, you also have the best view of our 150 foot waterfall.

Adjoining the lecture room is a kitchen where meals can be prepared. Some food can be purchased from the farm itself.
The Villa meeting area

The Villa’s large lecture and breakout room

Folding chairs or floor cushions can be placed on the marble floors to easily accommodate a group of 35 students in the main lounge and lecture room for both studying and eating. Carpet can also be placed on the marble circle to add even more carpet area to the floor if the students are using floor cushions thus raising the total number of students to about 40.

Informal Breakout Rooms
In addition to the two larger seminar rooms, Hale Akua offers four possible breakout rooms. This is truly ideal for conferences with a number of presenters. There are two breakout rooms in the main house, one at the Waterfall house and one in the main kitchen area. In all of these breakout areas, students can talk and also help themselves to snacks if that is the plan. Each of these breakout rooms can accommodate between 12 and 16 people.
