Hotel reservations in Kona are as versatile as the district itself, with a little bit of something for every traveller. No matter what your travel budget, you are sure to find an accommodation to match, from over-sized luxury resorts, to petite inns and most lodgings in between.
The two most popular areas for vacationers staying in the Kona district are the Historic Kailua Village and the Keauhou Resort area. In general, Historic Kailua Village is the more affordable area to stay in. Of course, you never know when one of the resorts in Keauhou may be having a sale, so inquire with our Travel Experts about both areas.
Once the retreat of Hawaiian Royalty, Historic Kailua Village is a former fishing village turned vibrant seaside town. Amongst its tiny streets, travellers will find a wealth of historic attractions and sights including: Hulihee Palace and Mokuaikaua Church. Additionally, the village boasts fantastic local eateries and sweet boutiques with local and International handicrafts. The vast majority of the accommodations here are quite affordable, with many small hotels and inns being readily available to vacationers. One of the most unique hotels in the village is the Jacaranda Inn. Built in 1897, this historic ranch estate was once owned by the infamous Laurance Rockefellar. Ideal for couples, the estate features eight romantic suites and one very elaborate private cabin.
Ideally situated for exploring all that the Kona district has to offer, the Keauhou Resort area is a short drive south from Historic Kailua Village. Aside from its abundance of historical sites, restored temples, fishponds, golf courses and proximity to Kona coffee country, Keauhou is home to three world-class resorts: Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort and Spa, Outrigger Keauhou Beach Resort and Outrigger Kanaloa at Kona. Sunshine and calm, clear waters make the area ideal for snorkelling, scuba diving and kayaking. For a unique experience, venture to the Sheraton after dark to watch the manta rays feed on microscopic plankton near the shore. This activity has become so popular the Sheraton actually shoots out spotlights into the waters nightly. Those wanting a one-of-a-kind evening experience should inquire locally about the manta ray night dive excursions departing from Honokohau Harbour.
