My wife and I stayed at the Holualoa Inn this last week, December 22nd to 29th, 2013. This is, without doubt, the best place you could stay if you are on the big island. I would not recommend this to people with children who want waterslides and the like, but for a couple who want a relaxing and very high-class...

This was our first trip to Hawaii, a celebration of my husband's 70th birthday! The Inn listed as a top choice in two travel guides and we decided we wanted to try a B and B rather than a big hotel on the beach. This Inn is located in a tiny village inthe mountains! I want to say that as...

Holualoa Inn is just perfect, whether you are a single person, a couple or a family. The property is magnificent, tastefully decorated, with excellent room/suites, views over the ocean and a great swimming pool. Restaurants or gold courses are surplus to requirements. The breakfast is opulent, and you have many options to eat out in the vicinity. The management will...

We were very well taken care of during our two night stay as part of our honeymoon trip to the big island. The room was beautiful and very comfortable, with a nice sitting area, huge stone shower, and big closet (we had the Plumeria Suite), with easy access to the pool area. The pool itself was wonderful, refreshingly cool with...

My husband and I recently honeymooned on the Big Island and stayed at the Holualoa Inn. We knew we didn't want to stay at a big resort, and we also knew we didn't want to stay anywhere where there would be children around. The Holualoa Inn was just the ticket. We found it suggested in a travel book and made...

Everything is perfect at Holualoa, hence the reason we keep returning. The attention to detail, the service, the incredible fresh food and coffee, comfortable beds. Every need is anticipated and addressed. The inn itself is to die for and only surpassed by the staff. By far, the best place we have ever stayed!

We stayed at the Holualoa Inn for 3 nights in June 2013 during our honeymoon. What a wonderful experience. We were greeted very warmly by Kat with fresh squeezed lemonade and cold towels. She showed us around the house and helped us with our bags. After a quick intro she gave us our space. We stayed in the Gardenia suite,...

I loved staying here. How often do you get to stay in a first-class inn on a working coffee plantation? The house is a true Hawaiian home that is as stunning as it is relaxing. Hawaiian and Indonesian-inspired decoration constantly reminded me that I was on vacation far away, and the staff is super chill and friendly. I loved taking...

Our 5,100 coffee trees do produce a delicious cup of 100% Estate Kona Coffee. The Hawaiian/French toast is made with locally baked Punalu’u Sweetbread and our homemade lilikoi cream cheese. Top it off with toasted macadamia nuts & coconut, our incredible lilikoi syrup, and you’ll experience one amazing breakfast! We look forward to your return “home” soon. Mahalo for your...
