From the minute you step over the threshold to the moment you reluctantly have to leave, this B & B provides the ultimate in luxury, attention to detail, beautiful surroundings and the friendliest hosts you could possibly wish for. We booked one of the mountain-view rooms. Don't be put off by the fact you don't have a shower in your... More

Spent five nights in the Honaunau room. Fabulous views on two sides and a large closet. Did not miss having our own bathroom and loved the lava shower outside. Enjoyed the delicious fresh fruits and the varied American style cooked breakfasts. Afternoon snacks were very welcome. The kitchen and barbecue were incredible and made our stay more special. What can... More

Best guesthouse in the world. Magnificent view, warm hospitality, great breakfast, tastefully decorated house. Many good restaurant around the area too. But remember to bring insect repellent with you as the area is full of insects and mosquito due to the nature of the environment.

The team of Ka'awa Loa really does mean and live that slogan! Very friendly and helpful hosts, a great breakfast (with fresh fruits and coffee from their own plantation) and a stunning veranda with with a terrific view for sunsets. That B&B is a lovely place to explore Big Island. Just one hint: some rooms only have a "half bathroom"... More

a spacious living space, well appointed kitchen, great views and lovely people made this a very enjoyable destination. The staff were lovely, friendly and warm and did everything they could to make one feel at home. We had access to the kitchen to cook in the evening if we so desired and the breakfasts were very nice indeed, including fruit... More

I stayed at the Ka'awa Loa Plantation for 2 nights at the end of my trip in the Pacific Islands. I had the feeling I was just coming back to a place I've always known. Hannah welcomed me with fresh fruits and tea. I stayed on the terrace and enjoyed the hot tub looking at the sunset… Michael prepares gorgeous... More

Great location, great hosts, great accommodations! The breakfast buffet is fantastic with a wide selection and wonderful tropical fruits and hot dishes, and the sunsets are fabulous. Ocean views are beautiful, nicely seen from the hot tub.

This place is an amazing B&B, we stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning and 3 nights at the end of a 3 week stay on the islands. We have never been to a place where you have been made to feel as if your part of the family. You have full use of their kitchen, with Mango juice... More

We booked a night at the plantation based on the reviews and we're so happy we came. Greg and Mike provides a very relaxed environment in their wonderful house. We highly recommend this place! The only part we regret is not staying longer.
