Noble House Hotels & Resorts Unveils Fully Completed Kona Kai Resort & Spa

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – July 15, 2015 – Noble House Hotels and Resorts – a collection of luxury hotels and resorts – proudly announces the completion of a top to bottom, multimillion dollar revitalization of the iconic Kona Kai Resort & Spa. From the refreshed guestrooms to the addition of a 7,020 square foot SpaTerre, Kona Kai is a restyled creation of fresh elegance and an enhanced guest experience, situated on the very 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. “This restoration emphasizes the history and charm of a property that has, for decades, been a favored escape for Southern Californians.” Kona Kai Resort & Spa invites locals and vacationers alike to indulge in one of the 129 revitalized guest rooms and in-room amenities, 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.

The property provides a brand new experience that is a true reflection of modern San Diego, while still celebrating the hotel’s rich history as a quintessential San Diego landmark and a maritime haven. 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 till does today, and has since been known as the premiere marina in San Diego. The catalog of celebrities who have moored pleasure boats there is impressive: Clark Gable, Burt Lancaster, Jack Lemmon, Gregory Peck, Jimmy Durante, Dick Van Dyke, Liberace, and more. In 1959, the Kona Inn hotel was opened next door and Kona Kai Resort & Spa continues to offers guests the perfect island respite within bright and bustling San Diego.
