This is such an exceptional Inn! We spent several days here, and felt it was one of the most special places we have ever stayed. We were greeted with such warm and genuine aloha from the staff. The inn and grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. Your every wish thought of ahead of time. You can have a massage...

We agree the Inn’s 5,100 coffee trees produce some of the best Kona Coffee around. It’s the peak of picking season and the coffee beans are as fresh as ever. We’re excited to know you experienced the best the Inn has to offer. Wishing you a Happy New Year and hoping you come back “home” soon.

I am going to do my best possible written recap of our stay at Holualoa Inn, but its going to be no where close to reality. My wife and I came here on the end of our 2 week Hawaii trip and stayed for 3 nights in the Coffee Cherry Room. From the moment we waled in, to the time...

In our planning and communications months before our trip we felt that Holualoa Inn had to be special and we couldn't wait to see if our feelings and research were on track. We were celebrating our anniversary and both of our birthdays, so we searched high and low to find the "right" place and did we ever!!! From the moment...

WOW – Mahalo for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We are excited to know you had an amazing time. It gave us chicken skin (goose bumps) to read all your generous comments. It is guests like you that make our work fun and meaningful. Creating great memories is what we love to do. Thanks again and...

This inn was one of the highlights of our wonderful trip to Hawaii. We spent 3 nights here as we explored the Kailua-Kona area. The inn is on a coffee farm with plenty of fruit trees and beautiful walking paths. You also have a tremendous view of the coast below. The inn itself is gorgeous and feels like a home...

During our two week trip to Hawaii, this was our destination to be at for my husband's birthday and boy was it special!

Mahalo for your generous review. We’re thrilled to know your visit added a special experience on your husband’s birthday. There is much to see on the 30 acres and you discovered the best spots. Our lilikoi juice and syrup is as popular as our coffee. We look forward to welcoming you back “home” soon!

The category of "B&B" for this hotel is a bit misleading. The hotel is so special that it belongs in a category of its own. We have stayed in high end luxury resorts in places like Tahiti, Seychelle Islands, Bali, etc., and found the overall experience of the Holualoa Inn to be as special. The price is high, but worth...

Mahalo for your detailed review and suggestions. It’s exciting when our guests stay for a week and have time to enjoy the Inn and see many of the beautiful sites and beaches the Big Island has to offer. As you said, there are many wonderful restaurants to choose from and Holuakoa Gardens is one of our guests’ favorite spots. We...

Holualoa Inn was our first base after arriving in the Hawaiian islands from the UK, and it was a great place to wind down. The B&B is beautiful and immaculately maintained. The rooms are not air-conditioned so we had to keep the windows open at night, but the property is about 1500 feet above sea level so it never felt...

My husband and I went to Hawaii for 1 week and stayed at cheaper hotels for part of the trip so we could splurge and stay here 2 nights-- it was worth it!

Mahalo for your recommendation! The upper lanai is definitely one of our guests’ favorite locations because the view is spectacular. We’re thrilled to know you enjoyed the snorkel gear.

If you are looking for any extraordinary island experience away from the hustle and bustle of a beach resort experience, you will find it at the Holualoa Inn.

Your kind words capture the essence of the Inn, “excellent breakfasts, friendly helpful staff team, gardens to walk around, and many private areas to just sit and read and enjoy the view.” We are thrilled to have so many talented artists and galleries within walking distance.
