The Inn is a wonderful and breezy location and, if you have a chance, is a great place to host an event and stay the night.

This is the only place to you HAVE to experience on the Big Island. I like to have a few days right on the water, but then it is time for an even more memorable experience at Holualoa. The view is simply breathtaking. 180 degrees of the beautiful Kona Coast and you have to drink it in from everywhere on the property, the Pavillion, the romantic roof lookout deck, the pool, the coffee trees, everywhere! I stayed in the Plumeria Suite and it was divine. I saw several other rooms while I was there though, and I would definitely check out another one the next time I come as they all offer something different. If you are lucky they will have the Lillikoi Lemonade available for your arrival to the property. Walking around with a glass of that through the gorgeous gardens, you almost don't want to leave to explore the island. But you will be happy when you do and this is the place you come back to. Unbelievable service, truly unforgettable views, and the highlight of my Big Island vacation.

Much mahalo for taking the time to post such a wonderful review. Our Holualoa location at 1,300 feet above sea level provides magnificent views of the Kona coastline, particularly from our new hot tub. We take great pride in our orchard and gardens so appreciate when guests take the opportunity to stroll through our land. We'll be sure to have a glass of our lilikoi lemonade awaiting your return.

Get your Big Island sightseeing and adventures outta the way before you land in this amazing place! Because once you get here, you'll never want to leave! I can't think of a better way to end a vacation. From the moment you see the inn's inviting sign and meander down the beautiful, lush bordered drive to the open air entrance of this wonderful inn, you'll think you've come home...but will never feel the stress. The grounds are perfectly manicured, the views are incredible and the staff is simply outstanding! What more could you ask for? Todd, Bess, Steven, Cat and Crystal could not do enough to insure our comfortable stay. From delicious, fresh AND healthy breakfasts and snacks to great advice and assistance in making dinner and adventure reservations to just plain pleasant and fun small talk, with a keen sense for those who prefer their own personal space. They've simply thought of everything, including beach supplies all the way from chairs, mats, snorkel gear and even sun tan lotion!! When is the last time your hotel supplied you with sun tan lotion?? If you want to experience the true meaning of Aloha, don't miss this place!

Thank You Holualoa Inn Six months ago my wife and I were woken at 5:00 a.m. up by a call from the front desk of our hotel in Kona. They told us that a tsunami was on its way and the hotel was being evacuated. Buses would be leaving within the hour. We chose to find our own way and left in our car in the early morning just as the warning sirens started to wail. It was a very stressful time. Even locals were leaving the lowlands and the highways were busy. Roads leading to the water were blocked by the police and we drove steadily up into the highlands. All we wanted was a safe place to wait out the surge expected from the tsunami. We didn't know the area so we just kept driving "up." Eventually, we arrive in coffee country more than 1400 feet above sea level and found the Holualoa Inn. It was still only 7:30 or so and as we drove onto the grounds the Inn seemed very quiet. A few roosters were strutting around but there were no cars in front of the main building and the only resident we could find was a large statue of the Buddha presiding over an empty lobby. We tentatively used the lobby phone to call the caretaker and find out if there was room available. We were afraid he might be annoyed at being woken up so early but he answered the phone cheerfully after only a few rings and when we explained that we were looking for shelter from the tsunami he said while the Inn was officially closed for a few days if we didn’t mind waiting for the staff to arrive he could have them come in to open it up. Check in time usually happened in the afternoon but apparently, while we were the first couple to arrive he’d had a lot of calls from displaced people the Inn was going to open up so people would have a place to stay. The first of the staff arrived within 15 minutes. From the start they were gracious and enthusiastic. We had woken them up on what was probably their day off, when the Inn was closed, and they apologized for not having everything 100% perfect. It didn’t take them long to correct the last few details. We checked in within the hour and just as we were about to have a nap they announced that they had called in their chef to make breakfast for us and the rest of the people who had drifted in ahead of the tsunami. It was one of the most delicious meals we have had for a long time. One of the best parts was eating local fruit and drinking coffee grown on the plantation. The other was the setting. The interior of the Inn and the furnishings are just beautiful and looking out the window we could see down the mountain to the ocean we had fled from a few hours before. We watched the tsunami coverage on CNN downstairs at the Inn. The waves never threatened Kona and even though we had pre-paid at our old hotel we chose to stay at the Inn that night anyways. It was one our favourite parts of our trip to Hawaii. The staff were full of advice about what to do and where to eat in the area and they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. One of the often repeated phrases was "make yourself comfortable. This is your home while your with us." It definitely felt like that except at home we don't have people baking us delicious snacks in the afternoon because they have the spare time or bringing orchids to put in our rooms. We have stayed at a lot of hotels and B&Bs in a number of different countries and we have never encountered such a perfect combination of charming staff, beautiful surroundings and comfort. We would definitely recommend the Holualoa Inn to anyone. It is a beautiful place and the staff are wonderful. They will always embody the true “Aloha spirit” of Hawaii for us. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Holualoa Inn and its staff made our experience so enjoyable and seamless. The property is romantic, clean and luxurious and is situated in a way where you almost feel like you have the place to yourself. The view and amenities were fantastic. If we go back to the Big Island this is definitely where we are staying!

My husband and I recently honeymooned on the Big Island and stayed at the Holualoa Inn. We knew we didn't want to stay at a big resort, and we also knew we didn't want to stay anywhere where there would be children around. The Holualoa Inn was just the ticket. We found it suggested in a travel book and made our reservation solely based off of the travel book's recommendation. Upon arrival at the inn, we were greeted with a cool towel and a glass of (freshly squeezed) mango juice to refresh ourselves after our long flight. The inn is absolutely stunning. From the open-air, open-concept floor plan, to the comfortable, modernized, and eco-friendly rooms, to the perfectly manicured grounds that are full of many varieties of lush tropical plants for you to explore and enjoy. The view of the ocean and Kona is panoramic with a gorgeous sunset ever night, guaranteed. The innkeepers are the most sincerely friendly people I have ever met. They are always ready to help you plan your adventure for the day if you'd like a little "local advice", or give you gardening tips on how to keep your orchids looking spectacular just like all of theirs; however, they never impose on your private time. The breakfasts were out-of-this-world. Crystal is a fabulous chef and an extraordinarily kind and gracious lady. She made us something different every day and each meal she prepared was absolutely delicious. And the picnic lunches she packed were also very tasty, filling, and nutritious! We could not have asked for a more perfect honeymoon! We sincerely did not want to leave at the end of our stay and when we go back, I am certain that we'll stay at the Holualoa Inn. Everyone made us feel so welcome and calm. The Holualoa Inn is truly a GEM! If I had to pick 5 words to describe the inn, they would be: quiet, organic, homey, eco-centric, peaceful.

Everything in this place... from decor to local artists featured everywhere to breakfast to the phenomenal ocean views to open plan to a little open gazebo on the very top that is great for sunrise/sunset/star viewing to a beautiful garden has exceeded our expectations. The pictures on their website do not do it justice. Staff was wonderful and there was only one other couple staying there, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves after 5 PM. My boyfriend and I stayed at Hilton Waikoloa and Four Seasons during the same trip, and I would much rather stay at Holualoa Inn than Four Seasons any day (and for half the price too!) It's a bit pricey for a B&B on the mainland, but I think it's very justifiable in Hawaii. I really hesitated doing this review, because I want to keep this place all to myself! :) I suppose the next time I'm there and it's swarming with people, I will have myself to blame. One thing I wasn't a big fan of (and I think somebody else mentioned it as well) is the fact that they had suggested tip amounts on the bill. I typically do leave a a fairly generous tip at B&Bs if I had a great stay as I had this time, however I do think it's in poor taste to list it out as an option with suggested percentages. Especially considering that the listed percentages were 10, 15 and 20%. 20% of $300-400/night is quite a large tip in my mind, considering that you're basically tipping for breakfast services and room cleaning (and if you were to break it down, it wouldn't add up to $60-80/night); everything else should be included in the room charge as far as I am concerned. Of course, the whole tipping phenomena with jars and tip lines EVERYWHERE is probably contributing to that, but I would suggest for management to reconsider doing that here. Just takes a little bit of magic out of the place.
