Tranquil Retreat in Hawaiian Jungle near Pacific Ocean
Those who believe in the Hawaiian concept of ‘ohana, meaning "extended family," respect diversity and aspire toward unity. The spirit of ‘ohana is found everywhere at Kalani, a nonprofit retreat center located on 120 acres of tropical rainforest on Hawaii’s Big Island.
This Groupon is valid for a traditional stay at Kalani during the Puna Music Festival (tickets not included), or for a stay centered on Kalani’s Practical Yoga: Cultivating Inner Strength and Radiance retreat.
Puna Music Festival, May 5–11
During this festival, four major concerts take place over the course of a single fun-filled week in Hawaii. Admission to ticketed events isn’t included with this Groupon, but between shows, you can participate in a full schedule of workshops and gatherings, many of which—including the opening outdoor concert—are free of charge. The festival hits its high note on Wednesday, May 8, when the Kalapana Night Market draws crowds from all over the island for a late-night Hawaiian music performance.
Practical Yoga Retreat with Will Donnelly, May 12–17
This five-day retreat helps you “tap into your inner radiance, reach your full creative potential, and head home with tools which will assist you in living a happy, healthy, more spirited life.” Talented yogi Will Donnelly makes it all happen with a combination of physically challenging hatha yoga and ancient kundalini yoga and meditation.
In addition to classes, the retreat includes guided adventures to Volcanoes National Park at Night and Kehena Black Sand Beach, a spot often frequented by dolphins.
Between asana poses, you’ll enjoy three daily meals served on an alfresco dining patio. Resident chefs use local produce and fish to craft delicious Hawaiian, Thai, and Indian cuisine. During your free time, you can take advantage of several facilities, including a heated saltwater Watsu pool, 120 acres of rainforest trails, and a 25-meter lap pool.
