A luxurious island escape awaits at the Kona Kai Resort & Spa, hidden in the center of beautiful San Diego. Laze the day away by the sparkling pool overlooking the bay, while savoring fresh local food from Vessel Restaurant or sipping tropical cocktails from the Tiki Bar. For the ultimate daycation experience, book a private cabana at the adults-only Paloma pool or family-friendly Tiki pool. End the day watching the SoCal sunset from the private beach. A day spent at Kona Kai Resort & Spa is a perfect paradise.
