Kohanaiki—Ultra-luxe along the Kona Coast

Kohanaiki—Ultra-luxe along the Kona Coast

Jet-setters land on Hawaii’s Big Island and head to the Kona Coast for deep relaxation amid Kohanaiki’s 450 acres of natural landscape. Unspoiled coastal trails, translucent blue waters and white-sand beaches set the stage, while features like a Rees Jones-designed golf course and sprawling, oceanfront clubhouse—complete with a chop house and sushi bar, a private brewery and a holistic spa by design star Tracy Lee—dress it in fine style.


When complete, the members-only community will consist of approximately 400 real estate offerings ranging in size and price—currently starting at $3 million—with postcard views of Pacific Ocean sunsets, the sculpted green golf course and misty peaks of Mount Hualālai. Becoming a member requires the purchase of onsite property—one can buy a turnkey residence or build their Hawaiian home from scratch with Kohanaiki’s dream team of architects—Shay Zak, Warren Sunnland, Jim McLaughin and Khoi Le.


Turnkey models include Hinahina, a three-bedroom getaway of 2,402 square feet, where one can contemplate the 7th fairway from their private infinity pool deck, entertain under an expansive lanai and entertain visitors at a separate guest hale (home).
