Kohanaiki: Big Island of Hawaii’s Oceanfront Community

Beautiful oceanfront beach club along the shores at Kohanaiki

Situated on the Big Island’s sunny west coast, Kohanaiki is an oceanfront community on the world-renowned Kona Coast. With new neighborhoods emerging and an attractive new entrance, excitement continues to grow at the casually elegant, luxury residential community.

Rees Jones-designed championship golf course

Real estate opportunities include estate lots, single-family residential homes, hales, and townhomes. By invitation only, property owners also have the opportunity to apply to the Kohanaiki Club and enjoy the many benefits of membership, including unlimited golf on the Rees Jones-designed championship course, the state-of-the-art fitness center, numerous swimming pools, and the incomparable 67,000-square-foot Kohanaiki Clubhouse and Spa created by noted San Francisco architect, Shay Zak. The comfortable, expansive space also features the signature restaurant under the direction of Executive Chef Patrick Heymann, a 21-seat movie theatre, a four-lane bowling alley, and an adults-only cigar and card room.

The members-only clubhouse

A beach club, organic community garden, and tennis courts are among the additional club amenities. There’s truly something for everyone at Kohanaiki!
