With an alluring mix of on-site activities and off-property adventures alike, exclusive community Kohanaiki is the ultimate playground in the Pacific

In partnership with KOHANAIKI


Located on the Kona Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island — one of the world’s most sought-after travel destinations — the invitation-only Kohanaiki is at the forefront of world-class private club communities and experiences. With 450 acres of shoreline views, this perfectly situated playground for avid golfers and ocean enthusiasts alike is nestled among ancient lava flows, preserved anchialine ponds and the Ono Lane waters, used by local fishermen for generations. Whether your ideal retreat includes thrilling outdoor excursions, daily golf, quiet time unwinding at an elite spa or an itinerary of intimate adventures fit for couples or families, there is truly something for everyone at Kohanaiki.

The community’s epicenter can be found at the Kohanaiki Clubhouse and Spa, where residents and invited guests regularly gather for a wide range of pastimes. A multi-generational recreation center, the ground floor is fully equipped with a bowling alley, a movie theater, a private dining space and an art gallery. While couples enjoy the adults-only poker and cigar lounge or wine tasting room, little ones can act their age at K Kids, an interactive educational environment where they will be immersed in Hawaiian history and culture. Another day, explore the island with Kohanaiki’s Adventure Team, who can lead excursions like deep sea fishing, whale watching and outrigger canoe paddling. Refuel afterward at the clubhouse’s 120-seat ocean view restaurant, tucking into a meal as the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean’s azure waters.

For those looking to enjoy the Kona lifestyle long term, Kohanaiki offers a wide range of real estate options, including estate home lots, custom single-family homes and paired townhome-style residences. Best yet, becoming part of the Kohanaiki family means gaining membership into a private club committed to cultural preservation and environmental restoration; practices such as replanting, maintaining sustainable landscapes and local education programs ensure that residents and others will enjoy the wonders of the Big Island of Hawaii for decades to come.
