The Holualoa Inn is truly our "home away from home" on the Big Island. There is simply no better place to stay when on Hawai'i. From the moment you arrive until the moment you depart, you're a member of the extended family. Kat and Anita were wonderful hosts, Crystal and Braline made the most amazing, delectable breakfasts, and Lindsay and... More

My only regret is not booking longer than two nights. The Holualoa Inn is luxury perfected to exacting standard with genuinely warm service from all the staff who make you feel as if you are the most important person in the world. The views are so mesmerising you could be lost in them for hours were it not the birds... More

Mahalo nui loa for posting such a beautiful review! Originally built as a private residence, Holualoa Inn has maintained its homey feel, offering our guests a wide selection of private spots to enjoy the coastal views and gardens. A couples massage overlooking the ocean is ideal, and it's wonderful to see our guests enjoying the serenity of our home. "Luxury... More

From the moment we stepped into The Halualoa Inn to the minute we left, we received nothing but 5 star service. Cat was so warm and welcoming, Braline and Crystal made the most amazing breakfasts and our room/view was spectacular. I wasn't sure how much I'd like the big island compared to the more popular Maui, but we actually loved... More

What could be more romantic than waking up to a breathtaking view of the ocean? Romance in the air, that bottle of chilled champagne from your Love Affair package is perfect to celebrate the sunset from our rooftop gazebo, or with a little juice for mimosa's at breakfast.

I love this Inn! This is our third stay and the location of our daughter's wedding in 2012. Staff is so professional yet down to earth and friendly. Rooms are beautifully decorated.

Wonderful personal attention from staff, they didn't invade our space at all but were kind and considerate. Excellent cooking and snacks! Beautiful location, garden, rooms etc. Perfect honeymoon location. Loads of beach equipment to borrow and local knowledge. Would love to go back ASAP!

Not far from Kailua, Kona, but very far from the busy tourist atmosphere of Kailua, this inn is the essence of luxury without pretension. We had an expansive view of the ocean. So quiet and relaxing. We were barefoot most of the time. Just heaven.

The traveler appreciates our inspired vision of Polynesian elegance, and the serenity our home, orchard and gardens. Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review.

I don't know where to start...and honestly, words cannot express the wonderful experience I had with the Holualoa Inn.
