Hotels and Resorts
Hotels and resorts are some of the most popular lodgings chosen by tourists. On the Big Island of Hawaii, you can find a hotel or resort that matches your ideal price point, location, and desired amenities. Most are centered around the Kailua-Kona area on the west side of the island, where you can also find the best beaches, the main airport, shops, and dining. You an find a variety of accommodations in Kailua-Kona, from luxury resorts to budget-friendly hotels.
If you aren’t worried about budget, you can search for hotels and resorts along the northern stretch of Kona, called the “Gold Coast,” where you’ll find upscale resorts, shopping, and dining.
B&Bs and Inns
While most of the Big Island resorts and hotels are centered around the Kailua-Kona area, several very lovely B&Bs and inns are located island-wide and offer a nice alternative for people who want the authentic Big Island experience without the cost of a luxury hotel.
You can find many chic and romantic B&Bs and inns in Hilo, on the east side of the Big Island. This region is less touristy, but has a much lusher landscape and proximity to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Vacation rentals are very popular with mid-range to extravagant pricing options, and you can easily find one that fits your vacation plans. If you’re hoping to explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, you might stay in Volcano Town. The town lacks large hotels and resorts, so we recommend the privacy and luxury of a vacation rental in this lush rainforest.
Your vacation rental will feel cozy and exotic, a home away from home amidst the unique Hawaiian landscapes.
