Unusual place to take my 3 year old grandson to help celebrate my 65th birthday but it was the perfect choice. Extremely comfortable with the toddler, the staff treated him like royalty.
Wonderful housekeeping staff, excellent food, offered everything we were looking for to just hang out and get to know Hawaii from a non-tourist experience. At Kalani, I feel we experienced the real hawaii, peacefulness, and the entire staff of volunteers are awesome. Highly recommend Kalani to anyone who would like to relax and doesn't need to be entertained. Off the beaten path and a totally awesome place just to relax and get in touch with the beauty of the island. Close to ocean beaches, wonderful pool on site. The management/owners should be complimented for living lightly on the land. We loved our accommodations too, a studio cottage with oversized bath tub! A perfect experience! Can't wait to return!
