An Ancient Hawaiian Land

north kohahla smallHawaii Island Retreat is location near the small country village of Hawi, in the historic district of North Kohala on Hawaii's Big Island.

Elegant and earth-friendly, the boutique hotel and spa were built as a sanctuary of peace and sustainable living at the cliffside meeting place of two celebrated Ahupua'a (ancient land divisions): elegant Honopueo, Bay of the Owl, and mystical Hana'ula, Red Valley.

The retreat's 50 acres of needled groves and valley trails include legendary council stones and native trees, planted generations ago by a Hawaiian Kahuna and his beloved wife.
Now as then, this land is a place of healing. The very name, Ahu Pohaku Ho'omaluhia, means "The Gathering Place of Peace-giving Stones".

As one writer describes it:

"Beyond and beneath all memory, the valley hums with a palpable spirit: as a hidden realm, ruled by the deep, abiding calm of ancient stones."

It is the perfect place for living in true harmony with nature.

"For me, this place felt so friendly and profoundly deep. It is Hawaii at it's most mystical."

Where History, Art,and Music thrive.

North Kohala is home to many of Hawai'is' finest artists, musicians, and healers. It is also a land of breath-taking beauty, with its windswept ocean cliffs, deep ravines, green meadows, and ancient coastal valleys.

It is the birthplace of King Kamehameha I, and a distinctive part of "old Hawai'i". In addition to preserving ancient landmarks, the rural towns of Kapa'au and neighboring Hawi have restored historic buildings from the Big Island's sugar plantation era of the last century.

Wander through these charming artists' villages, and visit their shops, sidewalk cafés, restaurants and art galleries.
