Kokua Hospitality

Kokua Hospitality, LLC, an independent hotel management company based in San Francisco, assumes management of Carmel Mission Inn, located in the heart of Carmel, California just off the West Coast's scenic Highway 1. The coastal boutique property features 165 guestrooms, over 4,500 square feet of meeting space, a restaurant and bar, a fitness center, as well as an outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, and private gardens.

"We're excited to welcome Carmel Mission Inn to our growing portfolio of California hotels," said Kirk Pederson, president of Kokua Hospitality. "The hotel is our first in the very desirable Monterey-Carmel market and marks Kokua Hospitality's eighth property on the West Coast and in Hawaii."

Upon arriving at Carmel Mission Inn, guests are surrounded by private, lush gardens and scenic views of the central California coastline. On property, guests can enjoy the heated outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, in-room massage services, an on-site fitness center, or dine at the Fuse Lounge Café, a casual breakfast and dinner restaurant and bar, which features live music on Friday and Saturday evenings. The hotel also houses 4,500 square feet of conference space which offers flexible options for weddings, meetings, or special events and makes it the largest full-service hotel and conference center in Carmel. The pet-friendly hotel offers guests access to nearby beaches, an array of outdoor leisure activities to explore on the Monterey peninsula, world-class golf courses, and upscale shopping and dining experiences in the neighboring destination town, Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Carmel Mission Inn originally opened in 1970 and has received various upgrades to all areas of the property over recent years. Kokua Hospitality is currently working with ownership on a plan to transform the property into a modern lifestyle hotel that embraces its original mid-century architecture while introducing the casual comforts of California coastal hospitality.
