Kona Kai, San Diego

In Hotels by Huey Bui

Living in Los Angeles, you would think that traveling to San Diego wouldn’t really present you anything you haven’t seen before, but you would be wrong. Located at the edge of Shelter Island you’ll find the Kona Kai Resort. A “Boutique” style resort that offers a little something for everyone. Centrally located, the resort is only twenty minutes to Downtown San Diego as well as some of City’s other great sites like Sea World. You will feel a world away, but yet you’re still be close enough to experience all the city has to offer.

The resort has gone through a multi-million dollar remodel…and it shows! Exuding a modern tropical ambiance the rooms have recently been completely redecorated and provide sweeping views of the Marina. The San Diego skyline backdrop lights up at night and provides a beautiful scene to go along with a nightcap or two.

The pool area consists of private cabanas, a full bar, and a assortment of activities. What better way to spend a day than lounging near the water with a drink in hand? You can spend the entire day at the pool straight into the evening and continue your lounging right into movie night which happens on a regular basis. Besides the pool, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. Bikes,Kayaks, Segways, Jet Skis, and Powerboats are just a few of the activities available nearby.

What trip would be complete without good food?! Vessel, the onsite Restaurant and Bar provides a welcoming dining experience for all ages. Live music brings the night to life and sets a relaxing tone to finish off the day. The menu consists of a wide variety of dishes, ranging from Ceviche to New York Steak and everything in between.

One of the more unique things you can experience is a bonfire. Nothing is more nostalgic than the smell of a bonfire complete with s’mores. Relaxing by the Marina, sand between your toes and marshmallows roasting on the bonfire is a perfect way to end the day!

If a weekend getaway is what you are in need of, a relaxing and fun destination is waiting for you at Kona Kai. Whether it’s relaxation at the pool or a night out at Gaslamp, Kona Kai is the place to stay. The multi-million dollar remodel definitely has brought this resort to the next level.
