54-250 Lokahi Rd, Kapaau
This inn was lovingly finished by the owners in 2009 as a luxury retreat for those wishing to get away from it all and find themselves. Built on 50 acres high on a cliff overlooking the ocean (standing at the edge will make you feel like you’re in a romance novel), it was started by the same woman who opened the Spa Without Walls at the Fairmont Orchid. Even some of the antiques from that hotel adorn the lobby and rooms. They grow and manage practically everything they serve at their restaurant—from herbs to vegetables to chicken eggs to goat’s cheese (which is yummy, by the way). They pride themselves on being organic, green and sustainable, from the solar panels to composting to the windmill. They will do meals if arranged in advance (even a light snack for those late check-ins). Fabulous, helpful staff. Basically, they are there for your needs—if you want to be left alone, so be it. If you want a historic tour of the grounds, facial and massage, they’ll arrange that, too.
