The Island Retreat In Hawaii That Will Make You Feel A Thousand Miles Away From It All
Let’s be honest for a minute: even in a state as relaxed and happy as Hawaii, life can get pretty hectic. Even though we hang out at some of the prettiest destinations in the world as often as we can, sometimes, you just need to get away from it all — especially if you live in Honolulu or have a stressful job. What better way to truly relax than with a visit to a retreat that is as remote as it is relaxing? Nestled on Hawaii Island’s picturesque Kohala Coast is this eco-boutique hotel and wellness spa where you will feel a million miles away from it all.
Welcome to Hawaii Island Retreat, a luxury boutique hotel and wellness spa that is as elegant as it is tranquil.
Located along the coast of the North Kohala District and set among 50 acres of lush, tropical land, this one-of-a-kind retreat offers breathtaking views of the dramatic cliffs and the vast Pacific Ocean.
Hawaii Island Retreat is an idyllic gathering place to hold a variety of special group events, from spiritual and personal wellness retreats to yoga vacations, educational programs, and weddings.
Here, you will find a variety of outdoor and indoor function spaces, including a large media room, reading library, 1,200-square foot ocean view yoga studio with hardwood floors that can accommodate up to 40 students, and an open-air poolside pavilion.
Did we mention the stunning infinity pool surrounded by palm trees? The 50 by 16-foot pool is purified with salt water, which makes it healthy for both swimmers and the environment.
The Maluhia Spa is home to women’s and men’s locker rooms with organic shower products, reverse osmosis drinking water stations, and solar hot water. You will also find an exercise pavilion and relaxation lounge overlooking the pool.
Open-air massage hales overlook the expanse of the valley below, and the whispering ironwood trees and songbirds are the perfect backdrop for any spa treatment.
We know what you must be thinking… "It can’t possibly get any better than this, can it?" Wrong, the guestrooms found at Hawaii Island Retreat are welcoming and beautifully decorated. Choose from elegant bungalows, suites, and yurts during your stay.
Each color-coordinated suite features a spacious bathroom with large soaking tub, separate shower, and turn-of-the-century Hawaiian furniture. You will also find private balconies and chairs overlooking fragrant gardens and the Pacific.
If you’re looking for something a little more unique, consider staying in a yurt. These stunning structures are full of charm, and feature either valley or garden views.
In addition to all the beauty and serenity you’ll find at Hawaii Island Retreat, you’ll be happy to know that this retreat was the first sustainable spa retreat in the Aloha State. Electricity and hot water is produced with sun and wind energy, and sustainable practices are utilized in daily operations.
The 50-acre sanctuary is even home to organic vegetable gardens, tropical fruit trees, and happy farm animals. In fact, you can even participate in gardening and cooking classes. Hawaii Island Retreat undoubtedly proves that "living in refinement and comfort can be in complete harmony with living in balance with the earth."
Whether you want to escape for a single night or an entire week, we can't think of a better place to get away from it all.
