Kalani Oceanside Retreat
For more than 30 years, Kalani has been a soulful place of refuge and renewal for international guests. Kalani is an educational nonprofit organization that celebrates Hawaii, nature, culture and wellness. Kalani is located on Hawaii Island, commonly known as the Big Island, and is bordered by tropical jungle and the Pacific Ocean.
The retreat center is situated on 120 acres of organic agriculture, overlooking the ocean, on the East side of the Island of Hawaii. Hawaii, also known as the Big Island is more than double the size of all the other islands put together, and it’s home to the only active volcanoes in Hawaii.!
Accommodations are simply decorated with original art, with no phones or televisions, making it an ideal environment to unwind, relax and focus on personal well-being and awakening. All accommodations include access to the pool, sauna, jacuzzi, lush towels and small gym.!
Because the Retreat Center is located in a tropical jungle overlooking the spectacular Pacific coast, the rooms have no need for heating or air-conditioning and they feature more screens than windows in order to maximize airflow and views.!
At the retreat center, guests are summoned by the call of the conch to dine on the retreat center’s open-air lanai (veranda). The cuisine encompasses a variety of styles including Hawaiian, Thai and South American, and the chefs have extensive training and a common interest in creating healthful and delicious meals.
Finally, with a plethora of diverse and fascinating fauna and flora, we encourage our guests to spend quiet time in communion with nature.
We offer vacations and workshops that provide our guests with fun and transformative experiences, and the tools they need to promote their higher selves.
Our experienced staff, assisted by resident volunteers, dedicate time, energy and care to our guests. We offer healthy vegetarian-friendly cuisine, comfortable accommodations for every budget, rejuvenating bodywork treatments, recreational facilities, and educational adventures.

Nova, co-founder of Soul Flow Arts, is North America's #1 ranked acrobatic paragliding pilot who is also known for being the first American to pull off a trick called the Infinite Tumble. He is probably even more known for his film, Infinite Stumbling, that tells the story of his life-altering accident in 2009 when one of his routine maneuvers went dramatically wrong, smashing him into a mountain. Not only did he manage to learn how to walk again but he also was given the gift of embracing life, love, and gratitude on a profound level. This short film has been shown in multiple film festivals around the world and Nova has been featured in national magazines including Origin, Cross Country, and the television series, Xterra Adventures. Nova still flies and is an extraordinary, living example of what it takes to face fears, engage flow, and always aspire beyond the norm. See more photos and other events by this presenter
