I thoroughly enjoyed this well planned evening from the time I stepped on the bus in Kona. The driver was very knowledgeable and personable and made our journey to the ranch very interesting. I loved every part of the evening from the open bar, delicious food, wonderful views, ranch animals including Miss Piggly Wiggly ( a highlight) star gazing through... More

My friend and I had an excellent time at the ranch. The staff was incredibly kind and accommodating. We started off the evening by taking the tour bus from Kona to the ranch. This was such a treat. Our tour bus driver gave us a lot of information about the island as we drove north toward the ranch. He pointed... More

We had a wonderful time, perfect for all ages. Great music, great Steaks and Chicken. The views were spectacular, we even saw a Lunar Rainbow. We made s'mores, they have horseshoes, branded our own souvenir, my grandsons are 2 1/2 & 4. 1/2 and they learned how to rope a cow. All 6 of us had a great time. The... More

June 11, 2014 was the 3rd time my husband & I have enjoyed the Kahua Ranch Aloha spirit and hospitality! It is definitely a fun family experience. We were 3 generations there. Starting with the Hotel pickup (with driver Sue giving us an historical perspective of the Ranch & interesting tidbits about some of the former owners), to the Adult... More

I was on the Big Island with for vacation the last week of May, and I have to say that the evening I spent at Kahua Ranch was probably the best evening of the whole week. My man and I took the bus up to the ranch (thank goodness we did!) which picked us up from our resort in Kona.... More

You would think you were on top of the world at this ranch. We are back 9 years later after we had our wedding reception here. The view is unbelievable, the food is fantastic, entertainment is phenomenal, the hosts are superb, especially Sue. Sue is the most hospitable, warm and gracious host. Can't wait to visit again. Love this place!... More

A delicious dinner and evening at the ranch was a totally unique side of Hawaii. The beautiful drive to the ranch is breathtaking. The welcome is delightful. The natural beauty of the ranch would appeal to a couples experience. We were a family, a 8mo., 4years, parents and grandparents. All of us loved the evening. Drinks before dinner, great dinner,...

This ranch has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth!! John and Sue were so friendly and down to earth. They made us feel like part of the family. The food was delicious! We went to Parker Ranch last time and it didn't compare to Kahua. Definitely planning to go back!!

One the best things we did in Hawaii. The evening was perfect. From the time we arrived and enjoyed the gorgeous views of the landscape from hilltop to hilltop to ocean, we had a wonderful time. We were greeted by staff with personal handshakes and welcomed as if we were old friends. The food was great, the dinner entertainment was... More
