Tropical Retreat with Festivals Celebrating Yoga, Food, and Performing Arts

Kalani breaks the mold for island getaways. There are no marble fountains, suit-clad concierges, or golf courses. In fact, it operates as a nonprofit, staffed by volunteers with proceeds from guest stays going to education, recreation, and Hawaiian cultural preservation projects. What Kalani lacks in glitz, it certainly makes up for in down-to-earth spirit and gorgeous setting. The yoga-centric retreat sprawls across 120 lush acres, just a few miles up the coast from Volcanoes National Park.

After 37 years of service, Kalani’s bedrock principles remain as strong as ever. The traditional Hawaiian concept of 'ohana, meaning "extended family," encourages believers to appreciate diversity and unity alike. It permeates every aspect of Kalani, where the jungle grows right up to the shore and native plants grow wild around hand-built bungalows. You’ll have a chance to immerse yourself in this extraordinary setting with a three-night stay during one of the following festivals:

The itinerary of each festival mixes planned daily activities with leisure time, during which you can hang by the pool or sweat it out in the sauna. Some of the Hawaii Yoga Festival’s events include outdoor yoga, a farmers’ market dance, and a panel discussion on the history of yoga. The Ānuenue Freedom Festival, held over the Fourth of July weekend, celebrates diversity and the LGBT community with fireworks, fire dancers, and a masquerade party. Although some options are centered on hands-on experiences—the Puna Culinary Festival puts you in the kitchen with Hawaiian chefs—the Kalani Performing Arts Festival, for instance, focuses on spectator arts with a lineup of Big Island dancers, musicians, and actors.

Along with the festivals, you’ll have access to all of Kalani’s facilities—including massage rooms and a sweat lodge—and regularly scheduled activities, such as yoga, tai chi, and hula classes. The package also includes three daily meals of Hawaiian, Indian, and Italian cuisine served on an alfresco dining patio.

In the hales—traditional Hawaiian dwellings—you've got your own lodge room to call home. Set amid Kalani’s jungle foliage and overlooking the ocean, the modest rooms each come with a private bathroom, and some include access to a kitchenette, while others come adjoined by a garden veranda strung up with hammocks. The eco-friendly accommodations have no TVs, phones, or air conditioning, but broad screens filter in a mixture of crisp sea breeze and sweet jungle air.
