Holualoa Inn was our first base after arriving in the Hawaiian islands from the UK, and it was a great place to wind down. The B&B is beautiful and immaculately maintained. The rooms are not air-conditioned so we had to keep the windows open at night, but the property is about 1500 feet above sea level so it never felt...

My husband and I went to Hawaii for 1 week and stayed at cheaper hotels for part of the trip so we could splurge and stay here 2 nights-- it was worth it!

Mahalo for your recommendation! The upper lanai is definitely one of our guests’ favorite locations because the view is spectacular. We’re thrilled to know you enjoyed the snorkel gear. The fins, boogie boards and beach chairs, make for a fun day at the beach. We look forward to your next visit. Holualoa Inn Ohana

If you are looking for any extraordinary island experience away from the hustle and bustle of a beach resort experience, you will find it at the Holualoa Inn. Instead of the beach, you will stay in coffee country artist community, yet have all the luxury of a koa wood filled Bali style Inn: excellent breakfasts, friendly helpful staff team, gardens...

Your kind words capture the essence of the Inn, “excellent breakfasts, friendly helpful staff team, gardens to walk around, and many private areas to just sit and read and enjoy the view.” We are thrilled to have so many talented artists and galleries within walking distance. The 5,100 coffee trees on our 30 acres make for a great cup of...

The inn is just outstandingly beautiful, nestled in the mountains and overlooking the shoreline. They have a working farm, and grow their own coffee, mangos, etc etc. Chef Brian is just so much fun to be around, and he prepares top notch breakfasts! Don't be afraid to make requests. He also prepared a lunch for our beach day which was...

Mahalo for your lovely comments. Our sheets are incredible! We’re happy to know you’ll be enjoying them at your other “home.” Yes, the couple massages are pretty special and very popular with our guests.

We're always interested to know how our guests find us. We appreciate you sharing the Website and TripAdvisor Reviews are what made you decide to reserve the 4 nights. Plumeria is a great room!

My husband and I just returned from the Big Island and we can't stop talking about our experience at The Holualoa Inn. The pictures don't do it justice...it is more beautiful in person.

This was our third (now yearly) visit. They just keep getting better. This year we chose to renew our vows and Kat arranged all the details for a ceremony that would be special and customized to us.

This B&B is a little off the beaten track, it is situated off a main road through a small town. But it is beautifully situated - high up the mountainside it has a wonderful view of the ocean and coastline. The Holualoa Inn is an open, inviting sprawling wooden plantation style building. It is richly furnished with lovely wooden antiques,...

I procrastinated writing this review because I was concerned that my writing skills would not do the place justice. I’m long overdue.

Mahalo for your thoughtful and descriptive words. We loved the part where your son says, “Mommy, I’m scared. Where did we go?” Coming down the Inn’s driveway does “feel like you have warped to a different time.” We like to think of it as entering “the relaxation zone.” To hear you say “the breakfast was the best meal of our...
