Kona Kai Resort & Spa Completes Renovation

SAN DIEGO–Noble House Hotels & Resorts has announced the completion of a top to bottom, multimillion dollar revitalization of the Kona Kai Resort & Spa. From the refreshed guestrooms to the addition of a 7,020-square-foot SpaTerre, Kona Kai is a restyled creation with an enhanced guest experience, situated on the tip of Shelter Island.

“The resort’s enhancement is not only a physical property makeover, but an entire refreshment of the atmosphere in order to create a purely customized guest experience that provides a sophisticated, relaxed escape,” said Pat Colee, owner, founder, and chairman of the board of Noble House Hotels & Resort.

Kona Kai Resort & Spa features 129 revitalized guest rooms, in-room amenities, a refreshed lobby, a completely renovated waterfront restaurant, Vessel, a newly built Tiki Bar, along with a revamped pool, the addition of SpaTerre, and 55,000 square feet of flexible meetings spaces.


Kona Kai Club originally opened in 1953, and was one of the first developments on the then predominantly Polynesian-themed Shelter Island. The Kona Kai Club was a marina, intended from the start to serve high-end yachts, as it still does today. In 1959, the Kona Inn hotel was opened next door.
