We divided our trip to the Big Island in two parts: 4 nights in the Kona area, 4 nights in Hilo and Volcano and 7 more nights back in Kona. We are glad that we spent all 11 Kona nights in the Holualoa Inn. The place is absolutely lovely, surrounded by beautiful vegetation and coffee plants (we enjoyed the blossom...

We stayed at the Holualoa Inn in April 2012. I would say it is the most amazing experience we've had at a bed and breakfast. The staff are wonderful, the food is unbelievable, and they cater to your every need. The rooms are fabulous, the pool is gorgeous, and you feel on top of the world. I am not sure...

We stayed at Holualoa for the first three night of our honeymoon. We honestly questioned whether it was going to be too far away from the action. As it turns out, we were really thankful by the end of our trip that we had been able to spend some time away from it. While you definitely have to drive to...

Mahalo for choosing the Holualoa Inn. Located in the heart of the Kona Coffee growing region at 1,400 feet elevation, we are “above it all.” Our location offers spectacular ocean views. One of the best restaurants around, Holuakoa Gardens and Café is only a 5-minute walk from the Inn. Our Comphy sheets are so incredibly popular many of our guests...

We stayed in the Coffee Cherry Room at the Holualoa Inn for 4 nights in February 2013. it was a beautiful room with private hot tub. Staff were so friendly and helpful, we loved sharing the wonderful breakfasts with the other guests and of course the Inn's own estate Kona coffee. The home baked afternoon teas were a real treat...

From the tasteful yet beautiful decor to the gentle, generous hospitality, this inn is superlative. We were greeted with fresh lemonade made with lemons from trees on the grounds, then shown to our room, which had easy access to a rooftop gazebo with comfortable chaises and a view of the bay. Breakfast was a delicious two-course affair, again with fruit...

we found the Holualoa Inn on tripadvisor, and booked it based on the great reviews and the "coffee estate" aspect (we're major coffee hounds)....we absolutely fell in love with the staff and property. great little touches, like greeting us with cool towels and fresh juice. we felt like geniuses for staying in Holualoa versus a hotel in Kona. the view...

Mahalo for your wonderful words of “Even better than expected.” With over 5,100 coffee trees on our 30 acres, we have some of the best tasting Kona coffee around. At our 1,400 ft. elevation, the coffee trees love the weather and our incredible view of Kona. We agree, experiencing relaxing massages in the Hale Luana massage pavilion is an amazing...

We recently stayed at the Holualoa Inn for 2 nights after having been elsewhere on the island for a week. I was impressed by the grounds as we arrived and the common areas of the Inn were lovely.

just to keep the place a secret because it is really that good. Lovely grounds, great view, comfortable and well appointed rooms. A welcome relief for the beach/hotel ghetto of every Hawaiian island. I do not have one complaint. I am going back.
