Lodging on the Kona Coast


In the time of the Hawaiian monarchy, Kailua-Kona was the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii and the home of King Kamehameha the Great. It was also a popular vacation spot for ensuing Hawaiian royalty. They could have chosen anywhere in the Hawaiian islands to stay and play, but they chose Kailua-Kona. Could there be a better recommendation for a locale than that?

For a long time Kailua-Kona was a sleepy fishing village, and in many ways it still has that feeling, but it is also an exciting vacation destination with superb restaurants, unique shops, fun nightlife, and exhilarating ocean activities.

From resort hotels to condos and bed and breakfasts, the Kona/Keauhou Coast can fill your lodging needs. Here are some of our lodging recommendations.
