The 450-acre, private residential community, known as Kohanaiki, is home to former pro tennis player, Lindsay Davenport, who, among other residents (and athletes), has exclusive access to the property’s $65 million clubhouse, according to press materials.
Residents of the coastal community, located on 1.5 miles of shoreline of Hawaii’s Kona Coast, are offered an elite membership, which, among many other perks, includes the 67,000-square-foot clubhouse.
Ranging from $3 million to over $22 million, residences at Kohanaiki include estate home lots, custom single-family homes, and paired townhome-style residences. The homes are designed in four diverse, modern styles or custom varieties by architects Shay Zak, Warren Sunnland, Jim McLaughlin, and Khoi Le.
Designed by Zak, the Kohanaiki Clubhouse & Spa encompasses more than 6.6 acres and complements the Rees Jones-designed golf course and golden beach with a world-class spa and fitness center, and many other members-only exclusivities.
“We designed the clubhouse to be a modern interpretation of Hawaii’s first architecture—the primitive hut,” says Zak. “Clean lines are paired with cultural and historical nods to re-envision a traditional style into contemporary elegance. The simplicity of its design reflects a natural harmony with the environment, with the property blending into its surroundings.”
The Rees Jones-designed, 18-hole golf course winds through 100 acres of ancient lava flows, lakes, cultural preservation sites, and more than 200 restored anchialine ponds. It also features six oceanfront holes, which is more than any other course in Hawaii.
The Kohanaiki Spa is designed by the illustrious Tracy Lee with dry saunas, hot tubs, plunge pools. Spa treatments are inspired by Hawaiian cultural practices and the use of indigenous plants.
Other luxurious clubhouse amenities include an indoor-outdoor fitness center, a children’s center, a 120-seat Chop House & Sushi Bar Restaurant, a 21-seat movie theater and concession stand, a four-lane bowling alley, a cigar lounge with a scotch bar, a wine tasting room, and a wine storage facility with 350 storage lockers.
Membership is offered for $150,000, plus $25,000 annual dues.
