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.

Overall a great experience. The balcony is not private. Voice carries over to the next room. If you plan to relax on your balcony.... Be very quiet.
