They never cut a single tree, and hardly pruned any branches.  All guests are provided with high-end eco-friendly soaps and shampoo. They use natural and biodegradable cleaning products, recycle, and compost whenever possible in an attempt to minimize environmental impact.

Xinalani offers healthful cuisine with some seafood and chicken. They also offer vegan and gluten free options.  

A full spa is on the property and various excursions are available including ziplining, scuba diving, Stand up paddleboard and surf lessons. Complementary sea kayaks and snorkel gear are available for our use.
