Ahu Lani in Hawaiian is Temple in the Heavens. At Ahu Lani Sanctuary, you can enjoy ocean and mountain views and the quiet peace of being nestled within a private 24 acre native Hawaiian Ohia and Koa forest. This off-grid 9,000 square-foot facility has 10 bedrooms and 5 baths. A wrap-around Lani makes for great gathering spaces to enjoy meals, relax and read, nap, and hang out with the friends/family. Enjoy yoga, meditation, and more in the 30 foot round room or out on the land with the trees.

This place is magic. Garrett made himself available as unexpected needa came up. The hospitality was wonderful. They went so far as to bring a hoarde of 7 children to feed the farm animals and ride their horses. I highly recommend this space for a retreat
