Gary & Cory are lovely guys, and the most obliging hosts. My wife & I stayed here for the 2nd part of our honeymoon and it is a truly remarkable setting, with a cliff top view of the ocean, sat in the hot tub enjoying a glass of wine - it really does not get a great deal better! We...

You'll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. . . Lai Nani Resort! My journey to the 'Big Island' began when I stood at the top of the stairs at Lai Nani and looked out at the amazing view of the endless miles of the Pacific Ocean where the view appears to never end....

My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights from Aug 31, 2012 to Sept 8th, 2012. This was truly our home in paradise.

Although this is classified as a Bed&Breakfast, it really felt much more like a resort when you look at the views and landscaping. It really feels like you're in paradise when you are on this resort. What made this experience very different than the average resort, however, was the owner, Gary. He really makes you feel right at home during...

We stayed at Lai Nani Resort for 3 nights from July 22nd to July 25th, 2012. What a great place to stay !!! We had a bungalow next to the swimming pool. The bungalow is identical to what is shown on the website. Very modern, paradisiac location and a charming host (Gary). Even though it is located next to the...

If you want a beautiful private resort, this is the place. Gary was very nice and the locals think a lot of him. We did the zip line (which is right across the road) we mentioned where we were staying, everyone smiled and said how much they liked Gary. Thank you for such a nice time. We enjoyed hearing all...
