Kona Kai Resort, A Noble House Resort
Situated on a private beach near Lomo Point on Shelter Island, jutting out from the mainland, is the modern Kona Kai Resort & Spa. It is ideally located only 20-minutes to the downtown area and Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego.
Occupying a beachfront location ensures there are several water activities on offer either by the hotel or local outfitter. Complimentary beach equipment includes beach loungers, volleyballs, footballs, and buckets and spades. Activities including paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing are on offer too. The next-door marina hosts some impressive boats and yachts and from here you can organise a bay cruise.
This resort-style hotel is set around lush gardens and marina front pool with sweeping views of the picturesque Point Loma hillside. Rooms and Suites are fresh, light and unique, offering good facilities as well as a range of views such as the marina and pool.
Dining takes place at the Vessel Restaurant where doors open to panoramic waterfront views, while salads, tacos and SolCal favourites are served poolside at Paloma Bar and the Tiki Bar which overlooks Kona Kai Marina.
For some pampering, head to the Spa Terre where Indonesian, Fijian and Thai treatments are on the menu. There is an exclusive heated alpha-quartz sand bed which is often used to rejuvenate and reduce pains.
