Kalani Oceanside Retreat offers accommodations to suit diverse preferences and budgets. Their 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.
Their accommodations are not equipped with heating or air-conditioning, as Kalani is situated on the east coast of Hawaii Island, benefiting from the persistent east-to-west Pacific trade wind flow. Windows in the accommodations are screened, maximizing airflow and views, and there are no phones or televisions in the rooms.
The bungalows are located on Kalani property and are free standing structures that have high, slanted ceilings and tall screened windows. Bungalows house up to two guests and each room contains one queen bed and one twin bed, private bath, mini fridge and offer views of the jungle or pastures. Rooms are approximately 225 square feet and are less than a 5 minute walk to the training practice space. Roommates will be assigned if you are coming by yourself.
The lodge rooms are located on Kalani property and are housed in three two-level lodges or Hales (pronounced Ha'-lay, Hawaiian for "house") and have several rooms on each floor with access to common areas on both levels. The lodges are on the central lawn and are very close to the Dining Lanai and a 5 minute walk to the training practice space.
Triple, double, and single occupancy rooms are available. Rooms are approximately 200 square feet with twin, queen, or king beds, shared or private bath, fan, and a garden view. The private bathrooms have 1 bathroom right in the room and the shared bathrooms have the bathrooms outside of the room, down the hallway. Roommates will be assigned if you are coming by yourself and registering for any of the multiple occupancy accommodations.
Peak Beings tackles the learning process using many different approaches, such as communicative, contemplative, and experiential. They welcome students who are looking to teach yoga or those who are just looking to deepen their practice. In addition to learning to guide a yoga class, the training covers many other topics, including yogic philosophy, history, meditation, and chanting.

The Hele-On bus drops off at Kalani three times per day, Monday through Friday, and two times per day on Saturday. Note that there is no bus on Sunday. Also, note that the Saturday schedule is different than the Monday through Friday schedule per the Hele-On website.
