Holualoa Inn Reviews

Exterior of our Holualoa innAs a recipient of Fodor’s 2014 Hotel Award, BedandBreakfast.com’s Top 10 Luxurious B&B’s, and recurring Certificate of Excellence winner on TripAdvisor, we know we’re doing something right. We have even received recognition from Men’s Health, SFGate, Sunset, USA Today, National Geographic, Frommer’s, Lonely Planet, Huff Post, Trivago,  Wedding Wire, Culture Trip, and many more. But it is the kind and beautiful words expressed by the amazing guests who have stayed with us that keep the spirit of Aloha alive at Holualoa Inn day after day.

Reviews titled “Good for the Soul,” “An Enchanting Paradise,” and “The Gold Standard Bed & Breakfast” fuel our desire to not only meet, but exceed the expectations of our guests and provide “a quiet oasis in paradise.” So how do you define a great B&B? Is it the location and grounds? The welcome reception? The room and amenities? The food? Everything we do at Holualoa Inn is focused on providing a peaceful retreat. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what some of our guests have said:

“Absolute Perfection”

Hidden away from the tourist crowds of Kailua-Kona, whilst still very well located to see all the best beaches and attractions in the area – Holualoa Inn is absolute perfection. If you want luxury but want to avoid the big mainstream resorts look no further, this is the best you will find. Service is attentive and friendly without being invasive, both the rooms and common areas are thought-out up to every detail, breakfast is healthy and nutritious but never boring. We would have stayed here for months.Breakfast at Holualoa Inn

Always a Treat”

This was our third visit to the Holualoa Inn and it did not disappoint. Amazing views, great accommodations, yummy breakfasts and friendly, charming staff. Great jumping off spot for other island activities or a wonderful place to relax and soak up the ambiance. Can even cook your own dinner and use their garden of herbs to enhance it!

If you’re planning a wedding, elopement or vow renewal, we are your ideal romantic destination.

“Married in Paradise”

There’s really nothing more that can be said other than this place is a DREAM COME TRUE!!! My fiancé and I chose the Holualoa Inn to be our location site for our March 25th wedding. . .We were fortunate enough to stay there for 3 glorious, magical nights. Our ceremony was held on their ‘Great Lawn’ overlooking Kona down below. From the décor inside, to the bedding – can you say COMFORTABLE??? (YES!, we purchased the sheets!), to the peacefulness, ease, comfort, and attention to every single detail goes unsurpassed. Their breakfast alone deserves it’s own review!!


Celebrating your honeymoon, anniversary, birthday or just looking to escape to the Big Island of Hawaii for some relaxation or adventure? Holualoa Inn offers something for everyone.

My wife and I found Holualoa Inn just by researching on Google, and we happened to have found the best property in Holualoa, and perhaps in the entire Kona district. The property was astounding, and the fruit/coffee trees made the lush grounds a garden of Eden for our honeymoon. The staff–all of them–were very kind. They have thought of everything when it comes to what guests might need. And the breakfast, most of which grows right on the Inn grounds, is not to be missed. While most places, even those in exotic locations, might serve only as a bed to sleep on at night, my wife and I found the Inn to be a destination in its own right. Indeed, we spent a couple of our 6 days there just at the Inn. We want to come back for an anniversary!

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to peruse our reviews, and be sure to keep us in mind for a future getaway.
