Kalani offers accommodations to suit diverse preferences and budgets. The rustic accommodations are simple, outside-in spaces, which offer comfort and tranquility. Angular octagonal or pentagonal structures are a contrast to box-based architecture, and invite a departure from routine.

Kalani 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.

Accommodation types vary from bamboo cottages which can sleep up to three people, lofts with two private bedrooms and a shared space, tree-house rooms located under the cool shade of a large monkeypod tree, free standing bungalows, and two leveled hale lodges.
