At the tip of Shelter Island, the southern California vibe emanates at our beachfront hotel in San Diego. Sun, surf and sea create the tropical essence of our beachfront hotel in San Diego. With a rich history steeped in the beat and bravura of Polynesian and Spanish Colonial, Kona Kai Resort & Spa is a restyled creation of fresh, fun elegance punctuated by casual luxury. Fresh off a $22 million dollar transformation, the updated property features newly renovated bathrooms with glass enclosed showers in every guestroom, revitalized common areas and a luxurious spa, SpaTerre, offering the finest services from all over the world. Perfect for an executive meeting, a surprise getaway or a romantic wedding, Kona Kai Resort & Spa offers the right space for the right occasion. You'll find that space amidst quiet, private beaches, lush tropical gardens, astounding bay and marina views along San Diego's most magnificent stretch of waterfront. Relax poolside while you take in the view of Kona Kai Marina from the Tiki Bar or zip around the San Diego Bay on jet skis and see the city from a new perspective. Kona Kai Resort & Spa is the perfect place to start living.
