Kapoho estate description

THIS WORLD FAMOUS PROPERTY has appeared on many television shows, featured in international travel publications, and leased by world-renown celebrities. Here is a retreat with a beauty and atmosphere unmatched anywhere on the island; an irreplaceable sanctuary to soothe the soul and experience Old Hawaii living at its best.

HIDDEN ALONG THE SUNNY SHORES OF KAPOHO, Shangri-La's four enchanting Bali cottages rest on your own private, crystal-clear, naturally heated bathing lagoon. Beneath lush coconut and tropical palms, the healing waters average 90 degrees year-round and are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or therapeutic bathing. There are also thousands of tropical fish to entertain you.

JUST OUTSIDE THE VOLCANIC ROCK WALLS SURROUNDING THE ESTATE, you can snorkel with sea turtles in one of the Pacific's richest and most protected wildlife preserves. Or, take a 15-minute drive to historic old Pahoa and sample some of the island's most eclectic boutique shops and restaurants.

The Shangri-La Compound is a collection of unique Bali-Style Structures:

ROUND HOUSE: A 700-square-foot Bali-style structure for yoga, meditation, exercise, massage, meetings, entertaining, or just relaxing in front of the TV. There is also a king-size sleeper-sofa bed.

THE PAVILION: A full-amenities kitchen, 2 bedrooms with king beds, and 2 baths. The larger bath is outdoor tropical-style with a sunken Jacuzzi tub, sauna and shower.

THE ISLAND BEDROOM: Open to the tropical breezes, this unique Bali Hut features a Full bed on its own separate island beneath the stars.

THE GUEST HOUSE: A one-bedroom Guest House and deck overlooking your private bathing Lagoon.

Base rate of $495 per night for two adults. $50.00 per additional person per night. 8 Guests Maximum. The place is amazing and this is a great deal!
