Kalani accommodations are not equipped with heating or air conditioning, as Kalani is situated on the east coast of Hawai'i island, benefiting from the persistent east-to-west Pacific trade wind flow. Windows in accommodations are screened, maximizing airflow and views, and there are no phones or televisions in rooms. You can find diverse accommodations to suit diverse preferences and budgets. The rustic accommodations are simple, outside-in spaces that offer comfort and tranquility. Angular octagonal or pentagonal structures are a contrast to box-based architecture, and invite a departure from routine.


Private, free-standing structures of approximately 400 square feet that feature wood, and renewable bamboo construction, and a covered, outdoor lanai. All cottages have unique artistic touches. Some are nestled in tropical foliage, while others look out over open fields. Cottages have capacity for up to three persons, and feature a private bath, and mini fridge.

Hale lodges

Two-level lodges which contain rooms on each floor with access to common areas on both levels. The hale lodges are located on the central lawn near the dining lanai, and feature garden views.
