Palms Cliff House Inn

28-3514 Mamalahoa Hwy.
Honomu, Big Island, HI, 96728, United States
TEL: (808) 963-6076

Located atop rocky cliffs overlooking Pohakumanu Bay, this Victorian-style inn is set on a 3½ -acre estate just 15 minutes outside Hilo on the Big Island. A large front lanai (porch) is furnished with wicker chairs and overlooks the orchard, planted with banana, mango, lime, and macadamia nut trees. Inside, each of the eight individually designed rooms includes a private lanai with ocean views, and the suites also have gas fireplaces and in-room Jacuzzi tubs next to the windows. Innkeepers John and Michele Gamble serve a daily breakfast, which may include banana macadamia pancakes, as well as Hawaiian-style afternoon tea.

Room to Book:

Although a fan and ocean breezes help keep the non-air-conditioned rooms cool, visitors with a low tolerance for heat should request a room that does have air conditioning.

Insider Tip:

For lunch or dinner, head to downtown Hilo for pineapple curry and green papaya salad at Naung Mai Thai Kitchen.
