Kalani is the kind of low key paradise that makes you fall in love again with Hawaii. - E. Guthman, San Francisco Chronicle
Kalani is one of the most welcoming vacation destinations in the world for lesbian, bi, and trans women. LGBT-owned and operated, we are proud to have lesbian women serving in key management, staff, and volunteer roles. In addition to our year-round, inclusive and accepting environment, we also hold week-long Hawaiian retreats throughout the year which cater exclusively to women.
Whether you visit Hawaii for a personal retreat, wish to explore the adventurous hikes and incredible natural diversity of the Big Island, or indulge in our yoga, dance, or wellness events, we are certain you will be transformed by the powerful memories you will create here.
What Is Kalani?
Kalani is a retreat center where you can experience Hawaiian nature, culture and wellness.
Founder and director Richard Koob and Kalani's gay and lesbian staff and board have, since 1975, presented diversity appreciation programs in Hawaii's schools and communities. We have also conducted and participated in fundraisers for Hawaii's HIV/AIDS organizations, and contributed to and participated in major events including the Gay Games, and host the Ānuenue Freedom Festival, the festival of LGBT Pride on the Big Island's Puna coastline.
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.
