The Destination
Want to see Mother Nature really strut her stuff? Go to Hawaii. Crystal-clear water, Ring of Fire sunsets, and jurassic-green landscapes are just another day in paradise here, and locals are diligent about protecting it. The chaise lounges on Hawaii's Big Island never disappoint, but the scenic and largely undeveloped North Kohala Coast makes a strong case for venturing beyond the beach chair. The arid western coastline yields to cooler, greener hills to the north, where farming communities are populated with artists and faithfully preserved vestiges of old Hawaii.

The Digs
Mindful tranquility awaits at Hawaii Island Retreat, a luxury, eco-friendly boutique hotel, situated on 50 secluded acres near Kapaau on the North Kohala Coast. This serene seaside sanctuary (and three-time winner of the Fodor's Choice Award) runs entirely on wind and solar energy. Ocean breezes keep rooms cool, reclaimed rainwater fills the pool, and nearly all of the produce you'll eat is grown in on-site, organic gardens. For a truly peaceful experience, partake in seaside strolls, lomi lomi massage at Maluhia Spa, and nightly stargazing—sans urban light pollution. Guests can opt to take a cooking class or just let the retreat's world-class chef whip up a gourmet feast.

  • "Here, sustainability meets luxury without sacrificing comfort. Set above the cliffs in North Kohala near Pololu Valley, Hawaii Island Retreat generates its own solar power, harnesses its own water, and grows almost all its own food."
