Life is exuberant on Kalani’s 120 acres of organic agriculture, preserved heritage, and retreat accommodations. Exuberant in fiery lava, invigorating ocean, tropical foliage, and exuberant too with people celebrating the spirit of aloha.
Only five miles away, you'll find easy access to lava fields where the lava flows down into the sea, and Volcano National Park is just a one-hour drive..We are blessed to be upwind, so we have no vog (volcanic smog) here, just the sweet, clean air of the Northeast Trades coming across thousands of miles of Pacific Ocean, considered to be the cleanest air on earth.
Visit our tropical conservation coast and center yourself at the haven Shiva Rea calls "one of the most potent and nurturing retreat centers in the world."
