Welcome to Kūaloli 

Aloha & Welcome to Kūaloli Retreats 

Kūaloli pronounced (koo-ah-low-lee) derives its name from the Hawaiian word for metamorphosis, symbolizing our mission to facilitate gatherings, encourage personal transformation, celebrate beauty and embrace joy making it an idyllic haven for personal transformation, inspiration and freedom. 

Welcome to Kūaloli, a one-of-a-kind property designed to create the perfect backdrop for healing retreats, events, and weddings. Nestled amidst the dramatic geological landscapes and lush fruit trees that define this part of the Big Island, Kūaloli offers a truly unique experience.

We offer comfortable overnight accommodations, delectable jungle-to-table meals, on-site classes, special events, personalized retreats, and even weddings.


Our three-acre, off-grid haven sits atop dried lava beds, where the jungle meets the ocean, providing a serene environment for restoration and tranquility. Here, you'll encounter the wild, raw, untamed, and profound elements of nature.


Kūaloli is distinguished by its opulent array of fruit-bearing coconut, banana, mango, papaya, avocado, cashew, lilikoi, citrus, noni, cacao trees, and more. Additionally, our property boasts flowering butterfly habitats, blooming lotus ponds, and a thriving jungle ecosystem that never fails to enchant our guests. The overall ambiance strikes a balance between a Botanical Garden and a Sanctuary.

Located at the base of Kilauea, a half mile from the renowned Kehena Black Sand Beach, often called Dolphin Cove, a brief drive to the lava tube heated hot springs, and an array of natural wonders, our retreat center is sure to delight your senses and ignite your soul.
