Let me start by saying that we always look for places off the beaten track avoiding large resorts. Luana Inn met all our criteria. Nestled in the mountainside overlooking keealakekua bay (Captain Cook) it was the perfect location for a quiet private honeymoon. We stayed in one of the two suites behind the main building
Beautiful panoramic vistas from our lanai.
It was also a great base for exploring other parts of the island
We used the pool daily and often the hot tub at night. We were entranced by the beautiful gardens and colorful birds.
Our room was perfect. Gorgeous 4 post bed very comfy. The bathroom was adequate with shower only. The kitchenette was well stocked for eating take out or simple lunches. Great Kona coffee provided by our hosts
Ken and Erins breakfasts were amazing. Delvicious fresh fruit and some style of egg dish daily along with some type of fresh baked goods. Lemon ginger scones were my favourite. Also loved the hot multigrain cereal. Only thing Missing was real maple syrup for pancakes
Erin explained that this was way too expensive to buy. Being Canadian we don't care for the fake stuff so we promised to send some for future visits!
We enjoyed talking with our hosts as we found lots of common interests and causes despite our age difference.
We look forward to visiting again especially ourmorning coffee watching the spinner dolphins in the bay
