Take your shoes off. Bury your toes in the sand. The Kona Kai San Diego resort is a boutique hotel that offers a relaxed vibe of island luxury. What guests notice first is the striking contrast of traditional Spanish Colonial style with modern elements. Dark wood against white textiles creates a breathtaking airiness of divine distinction. Sophisticated and elegant yet sandy. Kona Kai Resort & Martina is chock full of activities, adventures, and amenities. From lazing on the private beach, to enjoying cocktails poolside. From paddle boarding and kayaking to chartering a sailboat or fishing off the pier. From badminton to bonfires, your request will be always honoured. If you're looking for beach luxury, grab a lounge chair and look no further. Kona Kai Resort offers one of the only privately owned beaches in California. Enjoy the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific, white sand, and gorgeous views of the Marina.
