Beautiful Traditional Tropical Style Ohana Yurts

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.


Over the years, Ohana Yurts has grown to become the premier yurt manufacturer in Hawaii and a globally recognized business within the industry.

Ohana Yurts has been featured on popular tv shows: HGTV’s “Tiny House Big Living” Season 2 and also on HGTV’s DIY channel “Love Yurts”. The business continues to grow and enjoy much success, however, the core focus remains to be a positive influence on the environment and focus on providing the best possible materials and design for the ancient yurt and continuing to share the positive effects of the yurt for generations to come.
