This will be the 5th Annual Sex Positive World Hawaiian Vacation . . . returning to the beautiful island of Maui once again at Hale Akua Garden Farm and Eco Retreat Center.

Please read through this information.  If the vacation described and qualifications to attend feel like a good match to the vacation you would desire to be a part of, please complete this survey by the end of 2022 to be considered to attend by this year's vacation planning team.

A thoughtfully vetted group of vacationers, around 20-25 people, will be sharing a love of awesome boundaries, clearly leveled activities and a healthy consent culture in one warm, sunny place in the heart of the winter for 8 nights/9 days of caring and sharing Saturday, January 28th - Sunday, February 5th.  

To be able to settle into an intimate, connected experience together, this year’s vacation planning team is asking that all participants are:


- L3 and L4 members in good standing in our home chapters (or the equivalent experience level in other places or communities)

- fully vaccinated with the current boosters

- willingness to COVID test in advance of arriving and several days into the trip

- willing to provide the results of recent STI testing.

We’ll begin each day in a morning workshop we all attend that is meant to build connections and stretch the body and mind. Our afternoon time will be spent in choice activities enjoying all types of Hawaiian pleasures on and off property, staying within our own COVID bubble even while off property.  We come together for a different themed event most evenings.

The people who do best in this environment are self responsible, communicative and care about balancing everyone's needs. This vacation is about celebrating the sexy in everyone and being willing to be some part of everyone's erotic, sensual experience, without crossing your own or other people's boundaries.  This is not a heteronormative, swingers lifestyle or monogamous gathering.  Comfort with and a willingness to explore pansensuality/pansexuality and be in the presence of other people's sexual experiences regardless of gender expression allows everyone on this vacation to explore their truest self and feel accepted.

If this sounds like you . . . read on for more vacation details . . .

The clothing optional swimming pool, hot tub and sauna open to us and other property guests are open 24 hours a day.  The multi-room Villa, with its beautiful ocean view, is ours to enjoy throughout our stay with use of a spacious yoga room and the Waterfall House for some of our gatherings and evening events.  Meals during our time together will include some planned, shared meals, an ability to cook for ourselves on property as well as going out to enjoy any open restaurants and food trucks just a short drive away.  Shared meals will serve include adequate gluten-free and vegetarian options to accommodate both omnivores and vegetarians.  If you are vegan, you may want to supplement with your own food.

To help keep the costs down and vacation value up, everyone gives something to the experience that makes this vacation time together special, helping to prepare food or clean up, giving a little extra so others can afford to come, etc.  No one is paid to organize the event or facilitate morning gatherings or evening events. We will be sharing our knowledge and talents with each other and giving each other the space and time to be our most authentic selves.

Those of us who can afford to rent cars as part of our vacation experience will be available to give rides to and from the airport (just 45 minutes from Hale Akua) and to the local towns and beaches.
We will be collecting $100 – $350 per person, sliding scale, to cover group costs of event insurance, group food and supplies.  Flights from the west coast ran about $600 round trip last year.

Accommodations at Hale Akua run about $110- $175 per day per person.  There are places stay with other solo participants and places for couples and poly groups.  It is not possible to attend this vacation event while staying elsewhere on the island.   If you will be on Maui for other reasons and would like to join us but don't have the time, funds or energy for the full vacation, we have extra guests with us on the last weekend as long as you are willing to follow all of our safer sex and safer health practices.  Hale Akua will ask for $20 per day to be on property and we would welcome a donation to our costs per day as well.

Accommodations at Hale Akua can be viewed here: ( and are booked through our SPW volunteer registrant once the SPW planning committee has received this vacation survey, discussed this vacation with you and given you the thumbs up to attend. 

If you have the desire to be a part of this vacation but your funds are tight . . . we want you to be able to join us! We have funds set aside for young people active in a SPW chapter, community members who do much needed work in the world that is lower pay, our members who are part of marginalized groups and people in special circumstances.  

Alcohol in moderation is allowed on property.  Smoking must be done off property.  Due to the intimate nature of our morning gatherings and evening events, we ask that everyone remain sober enough to give and receive consent.

Remember, we need to hear from you by the end of 2022 by completing the interest survey so everyone attending this event has the opportunity to meet together for multiple zoom calls leading up to the vacation to discuss travel details and get to know each other better before arriving.

Other SPW events in person and on line are open to all chapter members and the guests members of all levels of sex positive experience.  Holding this event just for people who already have L3/L4 experience makes a huge difference in how the event goes for everyone who attends. We are super happy to support the planning of other regional and destination sex positive vacations that offer more options for L1 and L2 members and guests.
