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!

Mahalo for choosing Holualoa Inn and for taking the time to post this lovely review. I agree - Holualoa Inn is the ideal location for honeymooners. Originally built as a private residence, there are many secluded spots available to couples.

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.

I've often said that Kona attracts the tourist while we at Holualoa Inn attract the traveler. 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. I selected the Holualoa Inn as my wedding ceremony and reception site based off photos I saw online and when we arrived a couple days before the wedding to check it out in person we were seriously blown away.

Mahalo nui loa for choosing Holualoa Inn Estates for your beautiful wedding day! Our Malulani open-air event pavilion looked stunning with your décor (can't wait to see your pictures!) and Pele holding back the rain was a true miracle.

We live on the Big Island and when we moved here we decided to travel to the other islands each year for our wedding anniversary. Once we found the Holualoa Inn, we didn't want to go off island for our special day since we found such loveliness, beauty and personal service there. We loved our recent stay, the massage, dining...

My husband and I stayed here in the coffee cherry room for two nights after our honeymoon recently. We had an amazing time, just the two of us, and the Holualoa Inn was perfect for relaxing after the hectic wedding week before. It is in a lovely artsy town, and the nearby Holuakoa Cafe is a short walk and does... More

My husband and I actually stayed here in June 2008 for our honeymoon. It was the most beautiful and romantic Inn. The location is great for couples looking for a quite place to stay and the breakfasts were fantastic. Highly recommended!!

Submitted this earlier but it didn't show up for some reason...trying again. Spent two nights here in March 2014. It's not cheap -- ~$450/night for a room for two people - but it's in line with the Kohala Coast resorts, & it's worth it for a very nice, quiet, high quality experience. - beautiful property in the hills above Kona-Kailua....

Pictures and reviews online cannot prepare you for the actual thing. Celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary called for a special place: and we found it! Upon arriving you are greeted by a cool beverage, a hug , and breath taking scenery. The entire house is open with cross breezes possibly making air condition unnecessary.

Holualoa. To think that just a short time ago, my tongue stumbled over the pronunciation. Now the syllables flow fondly from my lips like clear water flowing over smooth stones in a gentle brook. I'm waxing poetic, aren't I. That's the Holaloa Inn effect. The decor of the place is beautiful and elegant, yet relaxed. The rooms are spacious and... More
