This is a special place intended for those who want to be off the beaten path, away from the crowds and who don't need a beach and a Mai Tai before they think they are on a holiday. Holualoa is a small village full of artists that is located above Kailua Kona at about the 1600 foot level. This is...

Hidden away from the tourist crowds of Kailua-Kona, whilst still very well located to see all the best beaches and attractions in the area - Holualoa Inn is absolute perfection. If you want luxury but want to avoid the big mainstream resorts look no further, this is the best you will find. Service is attentive and friendly without being invasive,...

Much mahalo for choosing Holualoa Inn and for posting this lovely review! With so much to see and do on the Big Island of Hawaii, many of our guests stay with us for only a few nights before moving on to another part of the island. The Big Island is, however, not that big and guests can actually drive all...

We finished up our honeymoon here and it was a great end to it. Beautiful views, beautiful property, great service, super comfy beds, pool and a hot tub. We had an early flight out and the chef insisted on coming in early to have a hot breakfast ready for us to take away.. at 5:30am!

This is an incredible property. It's absolutely the most wonderful B&B we've ever stayed at. From the moment you enter the Inn, you are impressed with the beautiful architecture and furnishings.

My husband and I came here for a quick getaway. We only had 4 nights. This lovely spot refreshed us so completely we felt as if we'd rested for much longer.
