Not many developments can claim that they have a movie theater, a bowling alley and a private master brewer at their clubhouse, but this members-only community located on 1½ miles of Kona’s Gold Coast puts a real emphasis on unique amenities. It also preserves a great deal of the natural landscape on its 450 acres, which feature archaeological sites and over 200 anchialine pools filled with marine life. Owners at the development are eligible to join the Kohanaiki Club (the membership fee is $100,000), which provides access to a beach, a golf club, the Rees Jones 18-hole golf course, a spa, a fitness center and the oceanfront Beach Restaurant.
The three-bedroom Hale Alani residences cost $2.56 million to $5.9 million, while 20 three-bedroom townhomes start at $2.85 million. The 12 three- and four-bedroom Hale homes with traditional Hawaiian rooflines are on the ninth fairway, and they start at $4 million. A handful of the 30 one-acre lots are available, ranging in price from $1 million to $12 million; they’re located on the golf course with views of the Kona Coast or Mauna Loa and the Kohala mountains. kohanaiki.com
