Immerse in the tropical ambiance of casual island luxury at our beachfront Resort in San Diego.

Bury your toes in the sand. We’re really happy to see you. The Kona Kai San Diego resort is a boutique hotel that offers a relaxed vibe of island luxury. What guests notice first is the striking contrast of traditional Spanish Colonial style, which we’ve infused with modern elements. Dark wood against white textiles creates a breathtaking airiness of divine distinction.
