My husband and I spent three wonderful nights at the Lilikoi Inn, located in the cool refreshing air about 1600' above Kailua-Kona, Hi. Our host and hostess, Shai and Trina could not have been more warm or hospitable. Shai even greeted us when we drove up and grabbed our luggage like we were long lost relatives. You really feel as though you've come to a second home in paradise with the pampering and personal attention.
We booked the Lilikoi room on the second floor where the breakfast lanai and guest kitchen are located. The room was tastefully appointed, even with a fresh tropical bouquet to welcome our stay including fresh fruit smoothies made by Shai.
The breakfasts started with delicious coffee made from their home grown beans and fresh tropical fruit. The banana pancakes, served with homemade lilikoi syrup were the best I've ever eaten!!!! From the frittata to other creative, delicious dishes we were always
impressed with Shai's culinary skills. We had the pleasure of joining them for one of their monthly special dinner's. This month it was a 5-course Indian dinner, complete with authentic live music. The food was marvelous and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting some of their friends from the island.
It was very obvious to us that both Shai and Trina enjoyed making their guest's stays memorable. We can't wait to return to the Lilikoi Inn.
Big hugs and thanks for a fantastic experience.
