    Hi, We just booked through Global Connections for two weeks in February 3-17, 2018. We understand that there is no daily amenities or parking charges, right? Is it better to rent a car at the airport (LIH) or at your property?

    About 150 sea miles I think. Pono Kai is on the island of Kauai. Take a flight from hnl to lih in Kauai

    There is a fitness center at Pono Kai. It is located behind the tennis courts. I didn't go inside so I don't know if they have weights
