Such a romantic and relaxing stay. The hike down to the falls was muddy and well worth it. The deck overlooking the falls peaceful and lovely. A simple and delicious breakfast with lots of fresh fruit.

About
Description
The Inn at Kulaniapia Falls sits among 22 lush, natural acres, surrounding Hawaii’s largest privately accessible waterfall. The Kulaniapia experience is like no other, just 15 minutes from town, but More completely away. Whether you come for relaxation, adventure or both, nothing quite prepares you for how much you find of each. Those seeking adventure are invited to sign up with the Kulaniapia Adventures team for a guided, 120 foot rappel down our namesake waterfall. Accommodations are provided in several asian inspired buildings providing accommodations ranging from standard/waterfall view rooms and family suites, to fully detached cottages and a Pagoda Guest House with a full kitchen. Enjoy a wholesome, locally sourced breakfast and the big island’s best coffee, all while enjoying the view of our namesake falls each morning. Less

The Jade Cottage is ? When we were there the TV did not work. The shower had a ball of hair in it. The table on the lani was falling apart. I am sure these have been taken care of, but were disappointing for us.

We stayed one night in a ground floor room. No stairs and a walk in (if fairly narrow) shower. Gentle slope (asphalt) down to the breakfast area from where you can view the waterfall.
