My husband and I just got back from our AMAZING stay at the Pakalana sanctuary on the Big Island. Where do I even begin?

I can’t express how impressed I was with the Pakalana Sanctuary. There are so many reasons why my stay here on the Big Island exceeded my expectations. I have stayed at big resorts on other islands and nothing can compare to the warm, welcoming, and home away from home feel that the Pakalana offered.

The sincerity and friendliness from Raymond, the owner made us feel welcomed from the moment we arrived at the Pakalana. During our 8 day stay there, he went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy and taken care of. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with any tips or advice that we needed about many of the main attractions on the Big Island. We did not have one need that Ray and his staff could not meet.

The property itself was beautiful, unique, and well laid out with a very tranquil setting. We started to relax the moment we arrived. Pictures and description of this place will not do it justice. You have to see it for yourself to understand the wonderful ambience the Pakalana creates in order for guests to enjoy a private and relaxing environment that is truly a home away from home. We stayed in the Nalu suite, a private bungalow away from the main house, and it was excellent, the view of the beach from our room made it a spectacular scene to wake up to every morning. The room, itself was very spacious, with a nice size bathroom and the shower was like nothing I have experienced before. We were not just limited to our room though, the whole sanctuary was opened for us to roam around, if my husband or I knew how to cook, we would have totally utilized the amazing kitchen. All in all, the accommodations made this place feel very comfortable.

If you desire a bit of nostalgia for old Hawaii charm (with a modern feel) and wish to visually immerse yourself in a unique and stunning architectural design, if you want to enjoy a quiet relaxing vacation away from the chaos of resorts full of tourists, then consider the Pakalana Sanctuary.

Thank you to everyone at the Pakalana who made our honeymoon so special!

Incredible Place to Stay

Pakalana Sanctuary is exactly what the name is…a Sanctuary. It is an incredibly gorgeous, luxurious, peaceful place to stay while on the Big Island. Just across the street is the ocean where you can see beautiful sun sets while watching sea turtles swim in the waves. The home and rooms are beautifully designed and decorated. The common kitchen is state of the art and equipped with everything you need to make healthy meals. I highly recommend Pakalana Sanctuary and will definitely stay there during my next trip to the Big Island!

Pakalana was more than I had anticipated! I felt so held and as if I had just returned home. Raymond, the owner, and the staff, helped us to feel so supported and we could truly just "drop in" from our every day life.
Gorgeous decor in each room with high end amenities, as well as a perfect location to the beach and walking distance to the local store.
This is a fabulous place to come to lead a retreat, host a party, wedding, event and even lead a cleanse, as it has a healing vibe that is magnificent. Highly recommended!

Paradise on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 11, 2013

There are two things to review at Pakalana.
First the housing. The houses are breathtaking. It makes you feel that you are deep in the south pacific with the bamboo construction. Each of the bungalows makes you feel that you have ultimate privacy, yet the whole property gives you a since of community and family with the common area kitchen. Did I mention the kitchen. It is a chefs dream!!! I cooked almost every night there just to be in the kitchen. The appliances are ridiculous! Each room has very comfortable beds and 5 star baths. The views of the pacific out the west and Mauna Kea to the east are amazing. If you like to visit with Honu(Turtles) they like to hand out at the beach 100ft. from the front door. Pakalana is located on the Kohala coast which has the best beaches in Hawaii hand down. You couldn't find a better place to stay for the money.
Now the reason I chose Pakalana.
Second review is the people. No matter what you want to do, surf, golf, tennis, dinner cruise, snorkel, yoga, bird hunt, pig hunt, nature walks, horse back riding the people at Pakalana will make it happen. I even think in the winter if weather permits they can take you snow skiing! They also offer a photography services so you don't have to remember to document the family vacation!! They will do that too. I have been to the big Island over 30 times and this is the best!!!!! Thank you to everyone who made my family vacation on the Big Island the best it could be. I'm coming back for sure!!!!!!!!

There is no way I can describe to you or pictures could do this place justice. You have to go and experience it for yourself. It's not the same.You have to be in the picture. Pakalana Sanctuary is an amazing place like no where else in all of Hawai'i. Raymond has created a spiritual place that replenishes your soul. Whether you are looking to relax on your honeymoon, reconnect and celebrate an anniversary, a family get away, seeking adventure, or looking to rekindle your spirit, Pakalana will do that for you. The craftsmanship of the property radiates the beauty of Hawai'i. There isn't a property that exceeds the amenities. Everything from the cozy and comfortable beds to the kitchen and the lanai's. You will want to bottle up a piece of Pakalana and take it with you. It's the kind of place that makes you want to find a way to live in Hawai'i
