The idea of Ohana Yurts started back in 2009. We wanted to buy some yurts for a holistic center project we were doing. After talking to several companies, we started to realize that were no Hawaii-based manufacturers, (even though some companies said they were). All yurts had to be sourced from the mainland, making the process incredibly expensive and too slow to be productive. It was during this process that the idea for Ohana Yurts was born. OY originally started as Backyard Yurts, but we soon realized that it was lots of ohana (or “families” in Hawaiian) that were buying the yurts to live in, so our name changed to Ohana Yurts. We are proud to be a family-owned and operated company serving the entire Ohana of Hawaii.
