Nothing says luxury like yachts and Kona Kai is docking a few of them. With a private beach, waterfront dining and Jet Ski hire, Kona Kai is a resort worthy of the rich and famous but without the inconceivable price tag (well not the ones Kim and Kanye are used to anyway).
Situated at the tip of the beautiful Shelter Island in San Diego, Kona Kai is the accommodation to fulfil your tropical-vacay dreams. Think day trips on boats, cocktails by the pool and seafood dinners on the beach. With 360 degrees of water – the marina on one side and bay on the other – every room has a view and most are newly renovated with a fresh and vibrant Southern California feel. Alternatively, if you’re lucky enough to BYO boat you can pay for docking and still use the marina facilities.
Kona Kai delivers more than just a stunning location and expert service. Along with beachside relaxation, guests can fully rejuvenate at SpaTerre, the luxury spa that combines the best of exotic Indonesian, Fijian and Thai spa experiences and offers a unique massage on an exclusive heated alpha-quartz sand bed for guests to discover the healing power of warm sand to alleviate pain and promote comfort.
But it wouldn’t be a true sports luxe holiday without a healthy dose of fitness fun so for those of you who struggle to sit still you can take advantage of the plethora of water sport activities. Pop on your active swimwear and try your hand at paddle boarding or kayaking, rent a Jet Ski or bike, play a game of volleyball, or simply hit the fitness centre or lap pool.
According to a tripadvisor review, Kona Kai provides “a backdrop to enjoy the best days of your life.” So what are you waiting for? Pack your wide-brimmed hat, oversized sunglasses and white linen ensemble (and these must-haves) and live life like the other half at the Kona Kai Resort & Spa.
