The Inn is completely on point. Every little detail has been taken care of, and you are given the option to make your stay whatever you want it to be.

My hubby and I got married on the grounds of Holualoa Inn in October 2014. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location. The grounds overlook the stunning vistas of Kona and we had the most magical sunset during our ceremony we could have asked for. We stayed one night in the Gardenia Suite and I can honestly say...

Much mahalo for your lovely words. Your magical wedding sunset was, without question, one of the most beautiful I have ever seen, particularly since we were prepared for a hurricane on your wedding day. Fortunately, the Big Island of Hawaii takes care of her guests, and your special day was just perfect. I hope you've still got some of our... More

I usually don't write up places I stay at because I'm not a big fan of free advertising. I did make an exception this time for the Hulualoa Inn. The reason is simple - it was probably one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The location is great in that it is at a higher elevation (over 1000... More

I'm writing this just to confirm what others say, this place is just wonderful, not just for the location, the style of the house, and the excellent staff, but the sheer thought that has gone into everything. The village is also very engaging, like many on Hawai'i it retains an old Americana feel long gone form the continental USA. Yet... More
