Beaches, Dining, and More!

A private oasis for you and your family, Ke Kailani is centrally located along the spectacular Kohala Coast and is conveniently situated just minutes from the island’s best beaches, farmers markets, and the charming upcountry towns of Waimea and Hawi.

Waimea Arts & Culture

Continue north just about one mile up the highway and head mauka (towards the mountains) to paniolo (cowboy) country. Waimea is well known for its long history of ranching and farming that co-exist today with a thriving arts, wellness, and culinary community.

Kahilu Theatre brings performers from throughout the world to its stage during two diverse seasons; art galleries, including the Wishard Gallery, The Gallery of Great Things and the Isaacs Art Center Museum and Gallery, feature the works of local and international artists; and the culinary scene includes celebrated eateries such as Merriman’s and Red Water Café, as well as one of the most well-stocked wine and gourmet foods outlets – Kamuela Liquors.

Farmers’ Markets in Waimea

Four outstanding farmers’ markets take place each Saturday in Waimea at a variety of locations – Kamuela Farmers’ Market on Pukalani Road, Kuhio Hale Farmers’ Market on Mamalahoa Highway, Waimea Town Market at Parker School and Waimea Homestead Farmers’ Market on Mamalahoa Highway. And most recently the Waimea

Mid-Week Farmers’ Market debuted on Wednesdays – a favorite of local residents. Plan to arrive early – most markets open by 7:30 am and are pau (finished) by about noon.

Things To Do in Hawi

From Waimea follow Kohala Road further north to the small historic plantation town of Hawi. While sugar cane plantations have given way to art galleries, boutiques and restaurants, the town retains its rustic charm and laid back vibe. Be sure to check out As Hawi Turns with its eclectic collection of retail fun and Tiffany’s Art Gallery which showcases some of Hawaii’s most talented contemporary artists. When it’s time to kau kau (eat) make a fast track to the Bamboo Inn or Sushi Rock.

Closer to home, Ke Kailani property owners enjoy close proximity to the Mauna Lani Beach Club, reserved exclusively for residents of the resort, as well as The Shops at Mauna Lani with its numerous boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants.
