This is my second visit to Kane Plantation. On my first visit, I stayed in the Kanaloa Suite and I stayed in the Kane Suite on my most recent visit. I absolutely loved my stay in both suites! Michael and David have created a truly magical place. They are incredible hosts. There are so many luxurious details throughout the grounds and rooms. The breakfast service is above and beyond anything I've experienced at a BNB. The sauna and hot tub are simply divine; a lovely treat when the temperatures dipped a little. I've stayed during sunny periods and rainy periods and honestly loved both just the same. They each have their own magic. Pictures just can't do this place justice. This is truly gem, you won't find another place like it!

Bumpy road to paradise but once you get there, you won’t want to leave. Hosts could not have been kinder or more accommodating. Living room, and bedroom were lovely and our bathroom even had an outdoor shower as well as an indoor shower. The view from our balcony was heavenly and breakfast was swoon worthy. The flower arrangements, lovely floors and wonderful paintings contributed greatly to the ambience. It was truly one of the nicest places we have ever been.

This is truly a magical little place. Do not hesitate to book, and stay as long as you can! My partner and I stayed here with a party of five, and we were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves. The property is breathtaking. We saw all three rooms, and they are all spectacular in their own way. The pictures almost don't do it justice; you just have to go experience this place. David, Michael, and Jim all go out of their way to make you feel incredibly pampered! The breakfast is delicious, their tourist tips are great, and the hot tub/sauna at the end of the day is truly luxurious living. I travel extensively and this was a top experience for me. My only regret is not staying longer! Definitely also take the time to learn about Herb Kane when you are there -- it adds an additional interesting element to the stay!

We spent two nights here and our only regret was that we didn’t stay longer. The setting is breathtaking, and the design and appointments of our suite were exceptionally thoughtful. Breakfasts featured fresh, local, and delicious dishes. The phrase “gracious hosts” is overused on TripAdvisor, but Michael and David embody graciousness, radiating genuine, kind-hearted warmth. If we ever return to the Big Island, a longer stay at the Kane Plantation will be our top priority.

Kane Plantation is by far the most beautifully outstanding place we’ve ever stayed. My husband and I stayed for our honeymoon, and it’s the most thoughtfully curated and stunning place we’ve seen. The breakfast are fresh, exciting and delicious, the property is lush and naturally beautiful and the room was like staying in an art gallery. The only place to stay in Hawaii!!
