Getting to Kalani Oceanside Retreat
Option 1: Fly to Hilo (ITO)
Fly to Hilo from other island airports such as Honolulu on Oahu, Kahului on Maui, Lihue on Kauai, or Kona, here on the west side of Hawaii, the Big Island. Several flights are offered daily with Hawaiian Airlines, United Airlines and go! Airlines.
Kalani is only a 45 minute drive from the Hilo airport. There is also the Hele-On county bus that leaves from downtown Hilo. This is a slow, but inexpensive option, that comes right to Kalani if you can coordinate schedules. For more info visit the Hele-On bus website.
Option 2: Fly to Kona (KOA)
Kalani is a 2.5 – 3 hour scenic drive from Kona, halfway around the Island of Hawaii, “the Big Island”, via either the northern or southern routes. You will have the opportunity to view the other half when you return to Kona.
There are also commuter flights available from Kona to Hilo on Hawaiian Airlines. Be sure to ask airlines about their offerings of special car rental rates and inter-island flight coupons!
Kalani offers transportation (from Hilo only) for $65 one way, or $45 per person if more than one traveler. They try to combine whenever possible. A regular taxi costs about $90. Let Kalani know at least a day in advance if you require an airport pickup; the cancellation policy is 24 hours notice. Their telephone number is (800) 800 6886 for US and Canada or (808) 965 7828 Worldwide.
