Kamuela, HI United States

Pakalana Sanctuary


Project Description

For a Virtual Tour and listing of the green construction products we used at Pakalana Sanctuary visit our Green Building Products page on our website at

Construction has a vast impact on the environment and our health, especially in Hawaii where we have over 150 distinct ecosystems. We made a conscious effort to obtain quality environmentally sound products as well as ensuring the appropriate protocol for green building was followed during the construction. In addition to green construction, we were consciously aware during the entire process about resources and recycling.

Pakalana Sanctuary is a premier luxury vacation and retreat property is nestled in the exclusive beachfront community of Puako on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. The Ohana (family) style atmosphere is created by the unique design and layout of the Ecoconscious Hales, fused with Asian Landscape and Balinesian Decor.
