Kona Village

Kona Village is one of the most treasured resorts by the worlds rich and famous. With its remote feel it is a very different experience from the other resorts along the Kona Kohala Coast. In thatched-roof hale (ha-lay, bungalows) on 82 oceanfront acres, guests experience barefoot luxury in an environment that still speaks to its past and showcases “Hawai‘i, as it was meant to be.” No televisions, radios or telephones distract the keen sense of place. Coconuts supplant traditional “do not disturb” signs. Petroglyphs (carvings in stone) hint of ancient times. Turtles laze on the beach, warming in the sun. Included in every stay are meals inspired by this island home, an award-winning ‘aha‘aina (lu‘au), activities such as snorkeling, fitness facility and tennis, to lei-making, stargazing, fishing the traditional way with bamboo pole and more. Every visitor has the opportunity to choose how much – or how little – to do to each day. This is Kona Village where Hawai‘i still exists; unplugged, unpretentious, unmatched.
