Welcome to Kalani!
E Komo Mai!
Kalani is an educational retreat center located on Hawai‘i Island’s breathtaking volcanic coastline. Kalani hosts individual retreats, group workshops, sabbatical, and community life experiences in on-site accommodations that range from off-grid campsites to eco-cottages constructed from sustainably harvested wood and bamboo.
Explore Our Campus
Kalani preserves and enhances our pristine, 120-acre campus and surrounding Puna District through sustainable education programs and hands-on community participation. As a result, Kalani has become a living model for discovering and implementing best practices in permaculture in a tropical oasis. For all the latest happenings on our lively campus, check out our upcoming events and follow us on Facebook and Instagram!
Visitors to Kalani often marvel at the multitude and breadth of experiences available right here on our campus. From enjoying three freshly-prepared, farm-to-fork meals every day, to attending enlightening classes led by Hawaii's brightest minds, to mingling with other travelers, there is always something new to try. Leaving campus? Adventures to local snorkeling pools, lava viewing spots, waterfalls, and Volcanoes National Park are within an hour's drive from our coastal location.

"Your excellence is fostering the best in all of us. Thank you, I will treasure my time here for the rest of my life."
"A gorgeous place for the whole family. Even our teenagers became yoga addicts. We'll be back!"
"I felt so at home here. Everyone is not only welcoming but accepting. I've never been so at ease, so removed from my past difficulties, as I felt here. It's truly remarkable that in seven days - seven days - I feel new, whole, rejuvenated, and absolutely alive."
