VOTED #9 IN THE WORLD BY ISLANDS MAGAZINE! GATED; WIFI; 90° LAGOON W/ FISH!

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday estate in Kapoho - Shangri-La at Kapoho Beach

BALI-STYLE COMPOUND WITH PRIVATE LAGOON NEXT TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN!

(Call the owner at 323-627-7521 for more information)

THIS WORLD FAMOUS PROPERTY has appeared on many television shows, featured in international travel publications, and leased by world-renown celebrities. Here is a retreat with a beauty and atmosphere unmatched anywhere on the island; an irreplaceable sanctuary to soothe the soul and experience Old Hawaii living at its best.

HIDDEN ALONG THE SUNNY SHORES OF KAPOHO, Shangri-La's four enchanting Bali cottages rest on your own private, crystal-clear, naturally heated bathing lagoon. Beneath lush coconut and tropical palms, the healing waters average 90 degrees year-round and are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or therapeutic bathing. There are also thousands of tropical fish to entertain you.

JUST OUTSIDE THE VOLCANIC ROCK WALLS SURROUNDING THE ESTATE, you can snorkel with sea turtles in one of the Pacific's richest and most protected wildlife preserves. Or, take a 15-minute drive to historic old Pahoa and sample some of the island's most eclectic boutique shops and restaurants.

The Shangri-La Compound is a collection of unique structures:

ROUND HOUSE: A 700-square-foot Bali-style structure for yoga, meditation, exercise, massage, meetings, entertaining, or just relaxing in front of the TV. There is also a full-size bed.

THE PAVILION: A full-amenities kitchen, 2 bedrooms with king beds, and 2 baths. The larger bath is outdoor tropical-style with a sunken Jacuzzi tub, sauna and shower.

THE ISLAND BEDROOM: Open to the tropical breezes, this unique Bali Hut features a Full bed on its own separate island beneath the stars.

THE GUEST HOUSE: A lovely private cottage perched just above the lagoon at the edge of the property. Features a Queen bed, kitchenette, dining area, outdoor bath and large deck.

GUESTS RAVE ABOUT SHANGRI-LA! Jeff from Michigan wrote this in the guestbook and loved Shangri-La so much he's available for prospective renters to contact:

'Our stay at Shangri-La was a vacation of a life time!! The no hassel environment was just perfect. I don't think I can stay at a hotel ever again. We loved taking the early morning swims in our private naturally heated lagoon. The privacy of the estate is a wonderful freeing feeling. You get the sensation that you are in your own exclusive piece of heaven. The proximity of the tidal pools was so close that we could go every day. Their beauty is spectacular, words can't describe the experience. I thnk only a painters brush could do it justice. Ever since we returned home I can only think, when can I go back for another trip to the Big Island and stay at Shangri-La. Loved it, loved it, loved it!!!'

Guestbook comments from the manager

Looking at the pictures again after being back in Colorado really stirs great memories. It was just my husband and myself and we wanted peace and solitude. We didn't spend much time away from the home, we ignored almost every tourist attraction as we were in paradise and never wanted to leave. The linens were very nice, we loved the outdoor shower and bath, and the landscaping... We can't say enough about the landscaping. We enjoyed all the details including the small shells in the walking paths and the orchids wrapping our linens on arrival. We loved the nightly rains and all the humidity. My skin never felt so nice. We loved the outdoor lighting at night and enjoyed watching the palm fronds wave in the breezes. We also loved the orchids growing on the trees. The flowers were amazing.



The pond was delightful for swimming and we grew to love the fish and the geckos. It was slightly inconvenient that our Verizon cell service didn't work at the home and yet, what a gift! By the time we left, we could care less that we had no cell service! It took Shangri-la to remind us that constant connection isn't THAT necessary and that we are humans and do not need our dog leashes (cell phones) on every adventure. Sometimes it is best to run free!

Christmas in Shangri-La

  • 5 out of 5
This unique property met and exceeded our expectations. We loved swimming in the warm, fish filled water. The outdoor master bath was amazing, and I loved the round house and screened in kitchen.
The location was perfect for an afternoon trip to the volcano. We also enjoyed shopping and people watching in nearby Pahoa.

A-MAAAAZING!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Unbelievably unique experience! Shangri-La is an exotic, yet quaint atmosphere that gives one the feel that they are staying in the middle of a rain forest under beautiful trees, surrounded by the deepest colored flowers, exotic birds and amazing fish in your very OWN pond! Floating through this property is the way I spent every morning well after walking only half a block to watch the sunrise over the ocean! After swimming a few laps, I laid on a raft and enjoyed the natural beauty that this property offers. Complete privacy, on top of everything else, made this stay my favorite vacation yet! While it was hard to leave this property, I found time to venture Downtown and hang with the locals on a Friday night where live music played, kids and adults of all ages dance barefoot and delicious restaurants lined the main street. This area is also known for its snorkeling as you swim with some of the friendliest massive turtles you'll ever see. Sunday I'd suggest driving to the jungle where you spend a morning of worship expressing yourself with dance and music. After a truly magnificent spiritual few hours, you walk thru this magnificent property to be served a fresh, organic lunch! After all these adventures, the best part is coming back to the quiet, secluded property to play some music, drink wine & frolic through the beautiful nature that Shangri-La offers. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, I give this stay, hands down, 5 stars!!

Paradise Found

  • 5 out of 5
Friends recently asked me about my stay at Shangri La on the big island of Hawaii celebrating my 66th birthday this past July 4. I suggested we look at the web site together and I would describe my experience as we watched the video and viewed the photos. Let me first say that all the images shown are totally accurate and do an excellent job of showing what Shangri La is like. I went with my girlfriend, my son and his fiancee and another couple with whom I have been friends for many years. Our stay surpassed our hopes beyond measure. It was like a Garden of Eden in so many ways, if I was to imagine what that could be like....Totally a world of our own, very private and with a quality of understated luxury.. Everything we could have wanted was at our disposal on the property. The on site manager was very helpful with suggestions remained invisible unless we sought her out. She made sure there was fresh fruit each morning for smoothies with our espresso. I also enjoyed preparing a few meals. Imagine a perfect setting with a warm tropical sunset dinner of fresh seafood and local orgainic ingredients. It was more then I could have hoped for to share this memorable birthday with loved ones and close friends. I can't recommend Shangri La in any higher praise. It was a very special experience we will all remember with joy for the rest of our days. I hope to return again next year if it is available when I plan my next adventure.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 out of 5
I had seen the photos, and read the descriptions, but I was still not prepared for the wonder of this compound. We live in the deserts of New Mexico, and I felt like I was literally dropped into a tropical paradise. The compound was clean, well stocked, spacious, quiet, private, and of course a lush delight to the senses. My favorite treats were the tidal pool with its myriad of fish, the island bedroom, and the outdoor shower and dining area. I can't wait to return!!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here back in October and was overwhelmed by how amazing this property was. The energy and vibes of this place made me feel right at home, and in a very happy place. The lagoon was so beautiful with all of the fish, I swam for hours everyday. I've traveled the world and stayed in the most luxurious hotels there are, and this house by far has been the most enjoyable experience thus far. I call it heaven on earth. I loved all of the separate houses on the property, and the center island on the lagoon with the daybed. Cant wait to go back again...

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION

  • 5 out of 5
This property is absolutely breathtaking and the privacy is unmatched. Everything about Shangri La is exquisite and the caretaker is equally as amazing.

Spending a week at the home was pure bliss and the weather was spectacular. The listing description and photos of the home give a great look into what you can expect when you arrive - everyone must experience the house!
