Where to stay in Kailua-Kona

If you wish to indulge yourself while on the Kona coastline of the "Big Island," book your stay at one of Kailua-Kona's fully furnished beachside villas, offering spa services, free Wi-Fi, and secure parking. You can also try one of the coastline's luxury resorts, featuring tennis courts, fitness centers, and on-site activities like hula lessons and diving classes. Smaller hotels a short drive from the city may not offer beach access, but they provide plenty of privacy at a fraction of the cost of the area's big resorts.
