Hotels in Big Island
There are two sides to the island, in terms of hotels: the Kohala Coast (where you’ll find the most big, plush resorts) and the Kailua-Kona area (with more inns, condos and B&Bs, and with more access to town life). Either way, be sure that you book hotels on the Big Island months ahead of time if you want to come during busiest travel times, such as the winter holidays or spring break. Try out some of the best hotels on the Big Island.
Set on 32 acres, the plush Kohala Coast hotel Fairmont Orchid, is a great place to stay is you want to lounge on the beach, do watersports or learn to strum a ukulele. Rooms have private lanais, and most have full ocean views, too. The resort has a renowned restaurant on site too—Brown's Beach House. Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is a villa-style Big Island hotel, in the Kailua-Kona area, with gorgeous views of the ocean and its own gardens, as well as a renowned spa and an excellent on-site Hawaiian Cultural Center.
