About Your Hotel

Take a trip around the marina in a kayak, paddleboard, power boat, jet ski or perhaps a gentle pedalo is more your style? The Kona Kai is a water sports paradise. Guests enjoy access to a private beach or La Jolla Cove is only 15-20 minutes from the resort – the water here is calm and ecologically protected, providing a safe home for marine life.

The airy, contemporary rooms have a tropical-inspired colourful décor with feature walls and rattan furniture. Most have private patios or balconies and all have views of the clinking yachts in the marina, the magnificent marina waterways or the blossoming hotel gardens.

There’s a chic waterfront restaurant and bar with a terrace for watching the world go by, a spa for a spot of luxury personal pampering and a marina for every imaginable water sport. And as the sun goes down on another day, head down to the beach to join the nightly bonfire and toast S’mores on the beach.


Rooms are air conditioned with cable TV, WiFi, hair dryer, ironing equipment, fridge and coffee maker.
