The Halemalu Retreat Center sits on a private five acre botanical garden estate in Captain Cook which is beautifully landscaped with tropical flora and over 30 diferent varieties of fruit trees. It has many areas around the grounds that are suitable for group or private activities. The wonderful Kona weather found here at our 1,600 foot elevation insures that the climate is always comfortable and allows us to hold many of our functions under both sunny or starry skies. As you breath in the fresh air of the mountains and hear the birds sing in the morning, you will feel you are one with nature, peaceful, refreshed and ready to start your day!

Linens, towels, toilet paper and soap are provided but there is no daily maid service. There are no televisions or air conditioning in the suites but free WIFI is available throughout the entire facility.

Weitere wichtige Infos
For rental of the entire 10,000 square foot Halemalu Retreat Center we offer a special $800.00 a day rate (3 day minimum) for up to 24 guests with unlimited use of the entire facility! There will be an additional daily $20.00 per person charge for groups with more than 24 people.
A non-refundable deposit of $800.00 will be required at the time of booking.
Once a retreat booking has been made, there will be no partial cancellation or room count downsizing allowed 30 days prior to the retreat booking start date. If your group is smaller than anticipated, you will still be responsible for the $800 per night charge but you will still have the entire facility for your own personal use and there will be no other “non-group” guests utilizing the facility.
You are allowed to “down-size” your group and the room count prior to 30
days of the booking start date. This however will allow us to book other
guests and you will loose your “exclusive” use of the facility. Furthermore
you may also incur meeting room and kitchen use fees. Room fees will then be based on our standard Daily rates.
You will also be responsible to make sure that all public areas you utilize are returned to the “clean and ready” state, to the best of your ability, after the area’s use.
Halemalu is a non-smoking facility. If you must smoke please do so outside far away from the building. And please do not dispose of the butts on the ground.
The Island of Hawaii has the highest electricity rate in the nation so please turn of all lights and the ceiling fan when not needed - especially when you are not in your suite. Also if you see any lights on in the common areas when no one else is there please turn them off to help us conserve electricity.
All of our public areas will be for your exclusive use. All we ask is that after your use, you please clean up and return the area to the way you found it.
When you check out please dispose of your trash in the waste container in the Laundry Room or Dining Hall. Also please return any items borrowed from the Kitchen or Laundry Room. Please be respectful of the Halemalu property.
We have lived here on the Halemalu property since 1969 and have worked very hard to make it a world premier individual, family, group or retreat vacation rental property. We hope you will come and stay with us!
