    About Royal Kona Resort, Kailua-Kona

    Big Island seaside resort overlooking Kailua Bay

    Hawaiian dream vistas

    A 20-minute drive from the airport delivers you to the oceanside Royal Kona Resort, overlooking the aquamarine waters of Kailua Bay. The small fishing village of Kailua-Kona is a 5-minute walk.

    Whales and royalty

    You'll be within easy reach of whale-watching adventures and historical sites like Hulihee Palace, a museum with artifacts from Hawaiian royalty. The Captain Cook Monument, where he first landed in Hawaii, is in Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park, a 20-minute drive.

    Private lagoon and luau

    You can take a dip in the private saltwater lagoon or outdoor pool, then indulge in a spa treatment. The hotel presents a traditional luau in a coconut grove, and the signature Don the Beachcomber Restaurant offers a retro-cool Polynesian atmosphere, along with sunset views.

    Mai tais on your lanai

    Guestrooms open to lanais with garden, mountain, or ocean views, ideal for enjoying a pre-dinner cocktail at sunset. Mini-fridges are perfect for stocking with drinks and snacks, and you can share your vacation photos via WiFi.
