First developed in the early 1960s, the original Kona Village Resort has reopened its doors after a complete renovation. The original resort’s Shipwreck Bar and Talk Story Bar have been revamped, alongside a world-class spa, but what makes this property unique is its access to the stunning geological landscapes of Big Island.
150 unique, standalone guest suites or hales with locally inspired décor and breathtaking views
Asaya Spa uses traditional practices and locally sourced ingredients in its treatments
Restaurants serving Pacific Rim-to-table cuisine, while iconic Shipwreck Bar and Talk Story Bar have been artfully restored
Activities include a sunrise paddle, sailing lessons, watersports, and exploring the unique landscape of Big Island
There are 150 individual suites (or hales) here, each paying homage to the resort’s legacy by weaving in artisanal Hawaiian touches with modern finishes. Choose from a collection of one to four-bedroom configurations, each offering stunning views of the gardens, lagoon, mountains, or the ocean. Inside/outside living is naturally a theme here, with the interiors blurring the boundary between the two, courtesy of carefully selected natural materials, custom furnishings, and expansive private lanais.
As with the rest of Kona Village, the leisure facilities have been revamped, with a fitness centre, multiple pools, and tennis courts. There’s also world-class wellness – housed in Asaya Spa – that spotlights time-honoured practises and local ingredients, channelling the healing powers of the earth. Built into the black lava flow with views of the volcano, the six treatment rooms have retractable walls so guests can enjoy the island breeze whilst unwinding.
Dining at Kona Village is excellent, with a diverse culinary offering meaning there’s something for everyone. As is common in Hawaii, dishes are made up of fresh ingredients locally grown and lots of seafood. There’s Moana restaurant serving Pacific Rim-to-table cuisine, while Kahuwai Cookhouse and Market offers simple, nourishing food all day. Two icons from the resort’s past – Shipwreck Bar and Talk Story Bar – have been lovingly restored, and offer incredible cocktails paired with equally incredible views.
The guest hales are all entirely comprised of recycled materials
The resort is one of the largest privately owned microgrids in the state, using 100% solar power provided by over 8,000 solar panels over two acres of land
They have a zero-waste initiative with reverse osmosis and wastewater treatment plants on-site
Kona Village fosters relationships and collaborations with several local organisations for the protection and restoration of the island, its animals, and its resources
The resort has an on-site farm, growing everything from fresh coconuts and limes to their iconic canoe plants
Why we love it
What makes this property unique is its access to the stunning geological landscapes of Big Island. From the otherworldly beauty of the Waipi’o Valley, the vibrant marine life found in the Kealakekua Bay, and the world-famous Kilauea volcano and Mauna Loa neaby, guests have the opportunity to explore a range of geological wonders, all within reach.
