My husband and I came to the island last month to celebrate my 40th birthday and Lai Nani turned out to be the perfect choice. I fell in love with the place just looking at it on their website, but in real life it was much more than I expected. First of all, the place itself is absolutely stunning, with... More

We stayed here for a week with our 3yr old boy - and we loved it! The bungalow, the pool, the picture-postcard pavillion and the ocean view are amazing. The sign 'welcome to paradise' was no exaggeration. Gary, the owner, also gave us great travel advise and even invited us for a wonderful Christmas dinner on Christmas eve, which made... More

Simply superb. Although this review is long overdue - and my apologies for the tradiness - My partner and I stayed with Gary and Cory back in June of 2012, hiring a car and touring the Hawaiian islands for a month. We spent 3 nights here and couldn't have been happier. Upon arriving Cory took us on a guided tour... More

Our stay at Lai Nani was great! From the zip lining, amazing ocean views, private accomodations, and personal attention, this place had it all. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for that local feel with a resort atmosphere. I will say, be ready to cook your meals as there are not many restaurants nearby and rent...

Hi me my two children and husband had the time of our life staying at lai nani resort. We got to swim in the pool and relax in the jacuzi. The owner Garry made us a wonderful prime rim dinner and also took us sight seeing to the beautiful waterfalls.

The property is in a very good location for visiting the Hilo area waterfalls and botanical gardens. Lai Nani is beautiful with gorgeous gardens and a lovely pool and hot tub overlooking the ocean. The room we stayed in was air conditioned, comfortable and right by the pool. We especially enjoyed the stunning ocean views. However, we were disappointed that... More

Yes, there are beautiful views and the grounds are lovely. BUT at $250/night there were some real deficits with this place. 1. At similar properties we've stayed at in various place around the world, a breakfast is included in the cost. NOTHING here. 2. Woke up to ants in bed the second night morning we were there. Yes, they were... More

Gary & Cory are lovely guys, and the most obliging hosts. My wife & I stayed here for the 2nd part of our honeymoon and it is a truly remarkable setting, with a cliff top view of the ocean, sat in the hot tub enjoying a glass of wine - it really does not get a great deal better! We... More

You'll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. . . Lai Nani Resort! My journey to the 'Big Island' began when I stood at the top of the stairs at Lai Nani and looked out at the amazing view of the endless miles of the Pacific Ocean where the view appears to never end....
