Palms sway, and water waves, and celebrated hotels, too, can change, move, adapt, and grow over time. Such is the stylish case with Kona Kai Resort & Spa, located at the far reach of San Diego's Shelter Island. Sky-reaching palms and the shimmery blue marina are two of the visual hallmarks of the Kona Kai, yes, but now there are more sights to enjoy: A just-completed expansion project has brought more luxe touches to the destination.
Take a look at the now-larger luxury suites, and other spots around the property, before heading down for a Shelter Island sojourn. Even if you don't have plans to hop onto one of the boats in the marina, you will be staying about as boat-adjacent as can be, in one of San Diego's swankiest getaway spots.
