Kalani is located on Hawaii Island, commonly known as the Big Island, and is bordered by tropical jungle and the Pacific Ocean.

We offer vacations and workshops that provide our guests with fun and transformative experiences, and the tools they need to promote their higher selves.

Kalani's recipe for a transformative vacation:

Keep your spirit high
Awaken to new ways of living
Let yourself relax and rejuvenate
Attune with creative energy
Nurture your body and soul
Indulge in natural splendor

Kalani Honua means harmony of heaven and earth, and this is what we aspire to. We welcome all in the spirit of aloha and are guided by the Hawai'ian tradition of `ohana (extended family), respecting our diversity yet sharing in unity. We invite you to open your heart to the Big Island of Hawaii at Kalani Oceanside Retreat.
