Kona Kai Resort & Spa Announces New Sustainable Programming

Kona Kai Resort & Spa Announces New Sustainable Programming
Written by editor

Kona Kai Resort & Spa, a legendary Noble House Resort located on the tip of Shelter Island near San Diego’s posh Point Loma neighborhood, has announced several new interactive initiatives in advance of Earth Day. The resort’s new programming is geared toward reducing waste, encouraging greener travel options for employees, and launching a partnership with Surfrider, an organization focused on protecting marine life.

“Kona Kai is surrounded by so much organic beauty, we have to do our part to ensure our natural environment is a top priority and we are doing everything we can to preserve it,” said Hugh Hedin, general manager for Kona Kai Resort & Spa. “These are small, but impactful steps we are taking to give back to this wonderful place we call home so we can all enjoy it for many more years to come.”

In a continued effort to prioritize making better choices for the planet, Kona Kai will launch a series of offers including Earth Day-themed ice cream from the property’s onsite restaurant Vessel, during the entire month of April with proceeds of sales going to Surfrider. The resort is also offering a “Noble Nature” opt-in room recycle program where all guests who participate will receive a free Earth Day ice cream. Additionally, all Kona Kai employees who walk, bike or take public transportation throughout the month of April will be entered to win fun raffle prizes. A family-friendly resort, Kona Kai will also be giving kids seed packets at check-in to plant trees, flowers, and vegetables when they return home.

Located on Shelter Island with fantastic views of Point Loma and the Kona Kai Marina, the resort offers 170 newly-renovated guest rooms and suites, along with an exclusive private beach, two pool and hot tub areas, and Vessel Restaurant.  The 11-acre Kona Kai Resort & Spa was recently refreshed and refurbished by Noble House Hotels & Resorts in June 2018 with 41 newly-expanded luxury suites, a new Marina View Terrace space for events, and Paloma Pool and Bar, a dedicated adult pool.
