About Hale Kai

Sustainably built as a home for Deborah, David, and daughter Alison; over the last 30 years, Hale Kai has organically evolved into a beautiful acre of oceanfront wonder. It provides a pure habitat for groups who wish to admire and partake in the daily adventures of work and play. These include; yoga, meal preparations, gardening, maintaining the solar powered system; which provides electricity for Hale Kai, practice in conserving the land and natural resources, and creating a loving and supportive community of like minded friends, students, family, and visitors who appreciate the rustic island lifestyle. Exploring the oceans surrounding Hale Kai and the Big Island brings wild joy; the abundant waters are home to a variety of unique fish, coral, and the occasional dolphin or humpback whale, which frequent the waters surrounding the island. Hawaii is a land of incredible diversity with options to explore the power and primitive intrigue of an active volcano, lush rain forests, warm springs, waterfalls, and abundant flowers that evoke the ancient spirit of the islands.

Travelers have a chance to snorkel in crystalline waters with a rainbow of tropical reef fish and sea turtles. In winter months, magnificent humpback whales are viewed from the lanai.

Never have I experienced such deep relaxation! Spending a week in retreat with Diane at the indoor-outdoor lodgings at Hale Kai was an extraordinary experience. Gentle yoga and core Pilates practices along with meditation started our day; and in the afternoon we had time to explore the island. Interesting people formed the group, and the food was absolutely fresh and delicious.

We had a wonderful time in the most exquisite setting. Diane is a wonderful yoga teacher, providing the perfect balance of yoga and relaxation. I was recovering from shoulder surgery, and she was able to modify poses so I could participate fully.
