My husband and I had been to the Big Island 10 years prior and had stayed at one of the hotels on the busy strip in Kona. This time around, we wanted to experience something different and we are so pleased with our choice! Ken and Erin were wonderful hosts that were very welcoming, knowledgable and great cooks. We enjoyed the beautifully landscaped property and being away from all of the busy activity and noise of Alii Drive. Although the property is south of Kona and is able to provide lovely, quiet surroundings, it is still close enough to be able to easily drive to the various sites and activities we wanted to enjoy.
Yes, I see many others have mentioned the delicious breakfasts and Kona coffee served each morning, and this was one of the draws for us as well. We were not disappointed. They were some of the best breakfasts we've had in our experiences with staying at B&B's. I even got some great ideas for some different uses for different kinds of grains I have been wanting to experiment with - MAHALO ERIN!
Overall, a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend the Luana Inn as the place to stay while on the Big Island. We hope to be able to come here again in the future ourselves.
