This resort has been through quite a lot. Built decades ago as a high-end getaway for the well-to-do, it fell into disrepair. A few owners later it has reclaimed much of its former glory and now exudes an old-world feel. It’s impossible to stay here and not feel relaxed—unless you contemplate the bill that awaits you at the end.
You’ll find tranquil green hillside grounds, fairly large rooms and relaxed staff. Every guest gets a welcome basket of banana bread. Their spa is small, but their treatment rooms are fairly large, and you get to use all the facilities when you book an appointment. They have a variety of classes from yoga to smoothie making, where you can even out the calories by using their “blender bike” to make your creation. They offer free cultural classes like ‘ukulele and hula lessons, lei making, bamboo pole and Hawaiian throw-net fishing.
