Holualoa Inn Is a perfect place for couples who love each other and want to relax and be pampered by a more than thoughtful and caring staff. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay, plumeria and ibiscus, and both were great and with different advantages. Plumeria has a separate sitting area, remote from all the other room, it...

I chose Holualoa Inn based on some research and the reviews here on TA. I couldn't have made a better choice for my wife's Hawaii 5-0 (50th birthday) vacation! The moment we arrived, we were greeted with leis, warm towels and tropical juice as we were given a tour of this unbelievably beautiful property. Lush grounds, warm and relaxing colors... More

My wife and I had the opportunity to spend two nights at the Holualoa Inn after our wedding in Hawaii on June 14th of this year. To say that this B&B is beautiful is an understatement! The entire experience, from the second we checked in to the point where we reluctantly checked out, was phenomenal! The property is gorgeous and... More

My wife and I found Holualoa Inn just by researching on Google, and we happened to have found the best property in Holualoa, and perhaps in the entire Kona district. The property was astounding, and the fruit/coffee trees made the lush grounds a garden of Eden for our honeymoon. The staff--all of them--were very kind. They have thought of everything... More

Stunning in all ways. We had the cottage. Very private. Fully equipped with full kitchen and grill. Perfect view to the ocean. Wrap-around deck, lots of tropical foliage and rural Hawaiian feel. At altitude with soft winds it is always a perfect temperature. The main house and the cottage are decorated in Asian themes. Take off your shoes as you... More

We stayed in the ginger room and it was just as beautiful as pictured. The cost was more than we would usually pay for a hotel, but very reasonable compared to other high-end resorts in the area and definitely worth the splurge for our honeymoon. Very nice mixture of homey and private. There are lots of cozy nooks to hang... More

This is a beautifully kept property in the Kona hill country overlooking the Kona shoreline. It is at about 2000 ft above sea level, so significantly cooler than the coast. The inn is filled with Buddhist sculpture and traditional southeast asian antiques. Our room was a suite: Gardenia, on the second floor. The bed was super comfy and the room... More

This place is unbelievable. Devoid and atmosphere are stunning. Every detail for a quiet and relaxing time are thought of. We made a ton to the store and grilled dinner rather than running to a restaurant. It was magical. Great views as you are 1500 ft above the ocean.
