"The Big Island is such a magical and important historical spot in Hawaiian Culture. From the volcanoes to King Kamehameha himself, the Big Island has so much to offer and this hotel is a great value and perfect spot to explore the island."

Located on the scenic Kona Coast, King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel overlooks Kamakahonu Bay and is adjacent to the site of King Kamehameha the Great’s royal residence.

Honu’s, the newly opened on-site restaurant, is open daily for breakfast and dinner and offers a magnificent weekend buffet. The indoor/outdoor dining room provides spectacular island views and is available for private parties and events. Casual fare, late night libations, and poolside beverages are available at Billfish Poolside Bar and Grille.
