I went to Kalani by myself for a yoga retreat as part of a workshop from an NYC instructor. I had a great time staying at Kalani. Met lots of nice people from all over at the pool, in the hot tub and at the dinner table. I also have to mention the all volunteer staff were all so very friendly. I actually thought about volunteering sometime, If ever I'm unemployed again. There were lots of interesting new foods, so I tried them all. They were all very tasty. I even ventured over to the ecstatic dance on Sunday. That was a lot of fun. Not seen that much tie die in a long time.... ;-)
Over all, a great place to stay for nice quiet relaxation (swimming, hottub, yoga), adventure (for tours), therapeutic (dolphin dance, watsua pool), nice sleeping arrangements, great weather, and food.
I'd recommend it to anyone and have.
