At a Glance
From the editors of Elite MeetingsLooking west, silhouetted palm trees flutter against cool ocean breezes. Eastward, a postcard-perfect view of San Diego Bay frames one of Southern California’s most spectacular waterfronts and meeting destinations. Minutes from downtown at the tip of San Diego’s Shelter Island, Kona Kai Resort & Spa blends tropical scenery with chic Spanish Colonial design. Its casual elegance, refined accommodations, and upscale amenities enhance any group event in a serene island atmosphere.
To complement its 129 renovated guest rooms, the resort recently expanded to add 41 luxury suites that offer breathtaking views of the bay or the Point Loma hillside. The beautiful surroundings serve as inspiration during meetings and events, too. Kona Kai’s indoor meeting spaces accommodate up to 500 people, with amazing views from the Point Loma Ballroom, Bay Room, and others. Outdoors, planners find 43,000 square feet of venues, including gardens, a private beach, and the Marina View Lawn.
Cocktails at the Tiki Bar, dockside gourmet dining at Vessel Restaurant, exotic treatments at SpaTerre, and sailing adventures on the Stars & Stripes await guests after meetings conclude. The newly renovated pool area offers both family-friendly and adults-only options, while more active diversions include kayaking, sport fishing, paddleboarding, and beach volleyball. End the day with great conversation and gooey s’mores at the nightly bonfire.
