Paradise just got more luxurious.

Kohanaiki, a private residential club located on 450-acres of the Kona Coast in Hawaii, is already a destination for luxury homebuyers. But it just got even more exclusive. The elite community just unveiled a new collection of secluded ocean view homes on a 12.5-acre parcel within the compound.

Pānānā is invitation only and will include five homes in its initial release, with 10 more being added at a later date. Each will range from 4,000 to over 6,000 square feet, be priced from $6.95M to $9.75M, and feature incredible amenities.

Members purchasing a home have the privilege of buying into a community with nature’s playground as their backyard, including world-class diving, snorkeling, fishing off Kohanaiki’s 39-foot Kai Kea Yellowfin boat, and surfing along one of the most coveted breaks on the Kona Coast. Plus, you get access to Kohanaiki’s award-winning Rees Jones 18-hole golf course, a Sports Complex with three tennis courts, basketball court, batting cage, and more.

An activity team is available to residents who will help coordinate daily outdoor activities like scuba diving, hiking a volcano, or participating in a boot camp. There’s also a 67,000-square-foot Clubhouse featuring everything from a Tracy Lee-designed spa to a four-lane bowling alley, secret whiskey room, wine tasting room, micro-brewery, movie theater, and more. And there are two restaurants on site with many ingredients cultivated at Kohanaiki’s onsite biodynamic community farm. Oh, and that’s all on top of the sweeping Pacific Ocean views.
