Hale Lamalama Kaili, an innovative healing bed-and-breakfast center, will be having its grand opening Saturday, Aug. 31, in Keaukaha.

The center is the creation of Dr. Michael B Russo, founder of Hawaii Pacific DEEG, a neurology and brain damage diagnostic and treatment center in Honolulu.

The B&B spa will offer treatments, amenities and activities designed to improve guests’ spiritual and physical health.

Breakfast, for example, will include locally grown banana, pineapple, citrus, avocado and other fresh produce. Organic goats’ milk and cheese, and eggs from local chickens will also be on Hale Lamalama’s table, said a press release.

Activities such as biking, hiking, trail running, yoga, Tai Chi, massage, accupuncture, aromatherapy and essential oil treatments also are available for guests.


“The aim was to create a wellness retreat and relaxation center for my patients and anyone looking to reconnect and center their mind and body,” said Dr. Russo.


As a special offer to celebrate the opening, Hale Lamalama is offering a free night stay for married couples that want to renew their wedding vows.

The center is located at 1335 Kalanianaole St., in a thatched-roof Balinese-style home.
