This was an exceptional location...close enough to all he attractions, but a peaceful, quiet rural location with a spectacular view over Kona and out to the ocean. Our Gardenia suite was perfect... sitting room with wrap around views and a large, comfortable bedroom and bathroom. The Inn was immaculately clean and well kept, with beautiful Balinese antiques, lovely art and... More

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,... More

We really enjoyed the common areas. The big living room, the outdoor jacuzzi and the swimming pool were nice. We like that it was quiet and enjoyed the surroundings (the gardeners make an amazing job here !!!). We liked the fact that even if it was quiet it was not far from Kailuea. Their story is nice, it is nice... More

Wow, what a great find...and it's largely due to Tripadvisor that I found it. The Holualoa impressed me from the drive in, as the grounds/landscaping are well designed and manicured.
