We just returned from a wonderful two week visit to Hawaii (Kauai and the Big Island). We chose the Luanna Inn for our base for visiting the west side of the Big Island, and we are so glad we did! The location is perfect - a short distance away from two of the best snorkeling spots in the state (Two Step and Kealakekua Bay).
The Inn itself is very comfortable with gorgeous sea views from the terrace. We loved watching the sunsets from the hot tub and the pool - just fabulous!
Erin and Ken, their darling sons and sweet dog, Charlie, were so friendly and really made us feel at home. They provided excellent suggestions for outings, including kayaking/snorkeling and night snorkeling with manta rays!
And the breakfasts! Wow! We are vegan and they were extremely accommodating, making us fabulous dishes like tofu scramble (with tofu made in Hilo), pancakes, scones and a lovely polenta pie, topped with tomatoes. There was always beautiful fresh fruit, homemade granola, toast, juice, plant-based milks, etc. to boot. Truly a vegan paradise!
