retreat in a native Hawaiian forest
Hawaii is known for it's white sandy beaches and Aloha spirit. What's little known are it's amazing forests. Many of these forests are gone now due to cattle grazing, but Ahu Lani is in one of the last remaining native forests on the gorgeous Hamakua Coast.
"Ahu Lani", which translates into "Heavenly Temple", is tucked into thousands of Ohia and Koa trees on 24 acres of protected land. On the far side of the land, the Kalopa Gulch (river) brings rain water from the top of Mauna Kea to the Pacific Ocean. Gentle pools of water and a 15 foot waterfall can be found just after heavy rains.
At nearly 3,000 feet of elevation, yet only 5 miles from the ocean, a unique ecosystem exists and guests will have a chance to immerse themselves into something very special. The Aina, or land, has been called "magical" and offers a very deep healing energy that people travel from all around the world to experience.
Try a new Hawaiian escape high up on the coast amidst ancient trees, ferns, horses, goats, birds, bees, and the warm morning breezes.
