This beautiful property was the site - and home - of a one-week retreat I attended, as part of a course I'm studying, and my course-mates came in from all over the world.

Let me begin this review by saying that my step-daughter and I very much enjoyed this retreat. However, since it was not at all what we expected, I thought it would be helpful to clarify it further here.

Although we did partake of the main facilities, the property was lovely, comfortable and serene. Our luxury yurt was very comfortable with a king bad and half bath (cold water only). Two bath houses - one of them solar (and not perceptible water) - were adjacent. The location

Is it possible to purchase an evening meal in the restaurant w/o being a guest of the hotel?
Aloha, We appreciate your inquiry. Our food is excellent and it is possible to have dinner as long as we have a chef on duty that night and we have 24 hours advance notice. Mahalo! The Ohana at Hawaii Island Retreat

Is this a kid friendly hotel? It looks as though all the rooms are single rooms (no suites) and I'm wondering how it would be to stay here with a small very active toddler (18 mo old). Mahalo!
I think it would be fine. The pool doesn't have a fence, so if you go out there you'd have to keep an eye on him. Otherwise, I think it would not be problematic. Nice grounds.

Is it cold there in the evenings?
I was there in January and in the evenings I was fine in a light sweater. We had beautiful warm weather all the way through. :)

Are your rooms air conditioned?
"We had the Yellow Room, the walls were a light hue and it was always so nice to return to our room and spend time there."
"We chose a room on the second level with a view of the ocean. It has a small balcony from which we enjoyed the ocean breeze."
"The Golden Peacock suite it quite private and large."
"If you like a bathroom/ shower in your suite do not choose the Yurts."
"Crimson room facing the ocean has a lovely large tub as well as a large walk in shower with two shower heads."
US$ 442 - US$ 629 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
