The Center at Kahuna Falls

big island hawaii

The Center at Kahuna Falls is kind of mind blowing on it’s own; with over 46 acres of Big Island conservation land lush with native guava trees, grasses, birds, and wild orchids. A feeling of wonder settles upon you on this land. Choose to skip through the green fern forests and along the riverside for picnics, meditation and even a refreshing dip. The Center is designed to give each guest a sense of home and real ALOHA while they are visiting the island of Hawaii and this is evident in loving details put in everything they do. Details like incredibly yummy vegetarian/vegan meals that are prepared three times daily and thoughtful touches like how they plant a pineapple in the memory of each retreat that visits.


We are beyond excited to host in this sacred yummy space! Take a moment to soak in the eye candy photos of Kahuna Falls Center and see what I’m talking about. Notice the HUGE temple space, epic views and all of the nature beauty this sacred land has to offer.

MEET the Chefs for Dark Goddess Retreat:


Kurtis and Esther have been lovingly creating rainbows of delicious foods together for three years.

Both vegan for health and ethical reasons these two are always experimenting with ways of taking plant based food to new levels. Kurt & Esther’s hunger for their traditional home style meals has inspired a natural “fusion” of Hawaiian and English vegan comfort food that will not disappoint

your taste buds!


Experience: Juicy fruit platters of mouthwatering local organic fruits. Rich & hearty comfort foods like vegan cheesy gluten free lasagna & island favorites like beetroot poke and smokey jackfruit laulau!


Their favorite ingredients are ʻuala (purple sweet potato), Kabocha pumpkins, Rapoza mangoes, buttery avocados, sweet dates and juicy solo papayas! Coconut curry, Haupia, homemade chocolate covered macademia nuts and vegan cheesecake are their most loved meals.


Always organic and full of Aloha! Every meal is designed with creativity & colour making eating a special experience. Kurt & Esther love creating nourishing mouthwatering food that leaves their guests full of wonder at their vegan delights.
