“Our stay at Holualoa Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

I have to say that its a very nice BB. We are very saticefied with the room and the overall performance of the whole place.
The offer a lot of service on top. You can use the guest kitchen with everything you need. They have snorkeling equipment, sun screen an so on.. for the guest to use.
The rooms and the whole place is very clean and very well kept in shape by the personal.
The location of the BB is also very good if you are going to kona and the sorrounding beaches.
We can reccomend this to anybody, any time.

Room Tip: We have just seen one room, but I can imagine that every room in this place is perfect!

Situated on the slopes of Mt. Hualalai in the heart of Kona coffee country, Holualoa Inn offers breathtaking views of the Kona coastline and is just a short ride to the Big Island's beautiful beaches. We are thrilled to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and took advantage of the amenities we provide. We believe nothing is more inspiring, relaxing or romantic than a simple walk on the beach, which is why we offer complimentary beach gear to our guests. Beach chairs, beach mats, boogie boards, snorkel gear, sun screen, even laminated pictures of the fish you'll see in our waters! It's all available and waiting for you here at Holualoa Inn. Thank you for writing such a wonderful review for us. We look forward to welcoming you home! A hui hou, Kathryn and your Holualoa Inn ohana

Wonderful personal attention from staff, they didn't invade our space at all but were kind and considerate. Excellent cooking and snacks! Beautiful location, garden, rooms etc. Perfect honeymoon location. Loads of beach equipment to borrow and local knowledge. Would love to go back ASAP!

Room Tip: Great views from the orchid room

Mahalo for choosing Holualoa Inn and for taking the time to post this lovely review. I agree - Holualoa Inn is the ideal location for honeymooners. Originally built as a private residence, there are many secluded spots available to couples. Enjoy a cup of our 100% estate Kona coffee in the rocking chairs overlooking the ocean on our makai lanai or perhaps a champagne toast on our rooftop gazebo. Our new hot tub offers breathtaking views as well. You could also take a picnic lunch up to our nursery, or relax in our hammock on the Great Lawn. The choices are endless! Wishing you both a long and happy life together. A hui hou, Kathryn and your Holualoa Inn ohana

Not far from Kailua, Kona, but very far from the busy tourist atmosphere of Kailua, this inn is the essence of luxury without pretension. We had an expansive view of the ocean. So quiet and relaxing. We were barefoot most of the time. Just heaven.

I've often said that Kona attracts the tourist while we at Holualoa Inn attract the traveler. The traveler appreciates our inspired vision of Polynesian elegance, and the serenity our home, orchard and gardens. Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review.

I don't know where to start...and honestly, words cannot express the wonderful experience I had with the Holualoa Inn. I selected the Holualoa Inn as my wedding ceremony and reception site based off photos I saw online and when we arrived a couple days before the wedding to check it out in person we were seriously blown away. The photos are gorgeous but being there in person is far more impressive. The grounds are very Zen-like and you cannot help but feel at peace when you arrive. The grounds are well manicured and the Inn is rustic but sophisticated in a Hawaii meets Bali sort of way. Over the months of planning the wedding with Kat and Cassandra I felt like I really formed a friendship with them and I will never forget how wonderful they were and how much they helped me feel relaxed through the process. We rented every room out in the Inn, including the Cottage and each room had it's own precious uniqueness. The cottage was perfect for having my bridesmaids and flowers girls get ready in the day of the wedding and I felt like I had my own little safe heaven on such a big day! The views from the Inn are breathtaking and I cannot wait to share my photos with the staff. The sunset as a backdrop to our wedding is something that could never be planned and we thank Pele for that.

Room Tip: Cottage for Romance :)

Mahalo nui loa for choosing Holualoa Inn Estates for your beautiful wedding day! Our Malulani open-air event pavilion looked stunning with your décor (can't wait to see your pictures!) and Pele holding back the rain was a true miracle. I agree, our Darrell Hill Cottage is ideal for a bride's wedding day preparation, providing a safe, groom-free space for you and your girls to get ready. Much mahalo for taking the time to share your review. You are a gorgeous couple and we wish you all the best.

We live on the Big Island and when we moved here we decided to travel to the other islands each year for our wedding anniversary. Once we found the Holualoa Inn, we didn't want to go off island for our special day since we found such loveliness, beauty and personal service there. We loved our recent stay, the massage, dining in the small town, shopping in the artist's studio and relaxing by the pool. We do feel as if we are coming home each time we stay. We cherish the very special moments we have shared, it is a world of its own.

Room Tip: We love the intimacy of the Orchid Room with a great view of the Kona Coast.

My husband and I stayed here in the coffee cherry room for two nights after our honeymoon recently. We had an amazing time, just the two of us, and the Holualoa Inn was perfect for relaxing after the hectic wedding week before. It is in a lovely artsy town, and the nearby Holuakoa Cafe is a short walk and does great food and mango mimosas!

The fresh cooked breakfasts at the Inn were delicious, with fresh fruit and local coffee, as well as lovely hot dishes. The staff were very helpful in catering to my husbands dietary requirements.
The views from the deck and pool area are amazing and we enjoyed our champagne that we ordered on arrival, overlooking the gorgeous sunset over the Kona coast.

We also enjoyed the afternoon iced tea and biscuits/cakes as a nice treat!

I had a great massage in the very lovely private pavilion with Annalee, who was just fantastic and helped to melt away all of the wedding stress!! Definitely request her if you are looking to get a massage while there.

It's not a cheap option, but was absolutely worth the price and was perfect for our special occasion. I rated sleep quality a little lower as the first night I was woken by roosters at 2am, however, was fairly warned about this possibility on check in and then afterwards made use of the earplugs that were provided. Roosters are everywhere in Hawaii so this wasn't really an exception on our holiday.

The cooler weather in Holualoa was a lovely relief from the baking heat down on the coast. Overall it is a lovely, chilled out, private location perfect for a romantic getaway and I am so glad we chose this place out of the main tourist town.

Room Tip: The private hot tub with the coffee cherry room was a lovely bonus!

What a pleasure it was to welcome you to Holualoa Inn for your Big Island honeymoon celebration. We were happy that you took advantage of some of our romance packages, like our Love Affair package which provides a rose-petal strewn bed, bottle of chilled champagne, box of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts and bouquet of fresh tropical flowers from our gardens. Our Indulge and Save package offers our Love Affair package and a one hour couple's massage for a savings so perhaps next time you're here your husband will join you. We also now offer a delicious Fruit & Cheese platter with a complimentary bottle of wine! Much mahalo for taking the time to post such a wonderful review. We look forward to welcoming you home someday, perhaps for an anniversary celebration. A hui hou, and ho'okahikahi ke aloha (be one in love), Kathryn & your Holualoa Inn ohana.

My husband and I actually stayed here in June 2008 for our honeymoon. It was the most beautiful and romantic Inn. The location is great for couples looking for a quite place to stay and the breakfasts were fantastic. Highly recommended!!

Mahalo nui loa for posting your review. It's been too long since we welcomed you home for your honeymoon celebration. We've made many improvements since your time here, including Hale Luana, our private, open-air massage pavilion to our new hot tub with breathtaking views of the Kona coast. Holualoa Inn offers the ideal Big Island romantic getaway, whether lounging on our hammock in our Blue Jade garden or toasting one another as the sun sets from our rooftop gazebo. We hope to welcome you home once more. Your sixth anniversary is coming up! Ho'okahikahi ke aloha (be one in love), Kathryn and your Holualoa Inn Ohana
