What Is Pakalana?
Up until a few weeks ago, I really did not know what the plan for the property was to be. During this process, Pakalana has been many things. Simply stated, Pakalana is a Luxury Property Rental. The layout of the property allows for separate Hale rentals for Big Island travelers, or hosting small events like weddings and retreats. My guess is, Pakalana will be a lil bit of both and a few things in between.
I recently did a test run with these concepts. First, Pakalana hosted our annual Strategic Planning Meeting for the Oceanside and Del Mar offices of my Financial Planning firm. The separate units and large community areas lent itself perfectly for the agenda of the corporate retreat. Each of us had our separate living spaces to enjoy personal down time, the big dining room provided ample space for our meetings and the O’hana style common areas created an at home atmosphere for laughs and libations.
Shortly there after, one of the investors brought his wife, and daughter’s family over from the mainland. He and his wife stayed in the Nalu “The Wave” Suite. This particular suite is one of Pakalana’s larger suites and has a lanai overlooking the ocean. The Nalu Suite is a one bedroom; one bath unit is the largest of the suites. It has a king bed, living area, reading nook, desk, with a large bathroom with a walk in shower. His daughter, son and law and two grandkids, 5 & 9, stayed in the Napo’o ‘ana “The Sunset” Suite. The Napo’o ‘ana Suite is a two bedroom, one bath unit that has separate entries and shares a Jack and Jill bathroom. On one side, a king bed, with a desk and entertainment unit was ideal for the parents, while the other side with an entertainment unit, sitting area and queen Punee that converts to a bed that was ample for the kids. While the Puakana ia went unused, “The Sunrise” Suite is on the ground level, perfect for the Great Grandparents if they came. The king bed, entertainment unit, sitting area create a cozy feel. The largest bathroom on property is in this unit, with a large walk in shower and a walk in closet.
The Main House is a two story, three bedroom, three-bath unit with a spacious loft on the second floor. The first floor is composed of a living room, large dining room, and kitchen with a pass through bar and a powder room.
The whole property could very comfortably sleep 18. Pakalana has two separate meditation gardens, open-air yoga studio, large recreation room, koi ponds, raised garden boxes out back to grow the properties organic fruits and vegetables.
Beginning in fall, two weeks out of the month the property will have Yoga Retreats hosted by, Elle Renee, “The Hiking Yogi”. Pakalana will also be an exclusive wedding venue for Weddings By Waters.
Big Island Concierge services will accommodate our guests every adventurous desire.
That’s a lil about WHAT IS PAKALANA.
