About Royal Kona Resort

Guests of this themed resort will appreciate the seclusion of its private beach and on-site spa and wellness centre, all located a short drive from the centre of Kona. Those staying at the property have access to an outdoor pool and a hair salon.

This Kona resort was constructed in the 1960s and was recently refurbished to provide modern comforts to its guests. Staff are available 24/7 and can assist with booking tours and tickets. It also has a gym with a swimming pool.

The themed rooms have mountain or ocean views, and each is equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, movies-on-demand and wireless internet access.

Royal Kona Resort's in-house restaurant, Don the Beachcomber, is a popular spot to enjoy a meal. The resort also offers a daily breakfast that can be enjoyed in the breakfast room, or there is a range of popular eateries in the local area to discover.

    Great Service!

    Condition of the rooms was overall good with small icebox in the room. There was a patio excellent for sitting and watching the bay. We were on the north side or back side. Services are excellent you can book almost any tour you desire here. Menu prices are a bit high and they do not have a military discount although they were very nice and gave us free parking since there was no military discount. Thanks.

    Great Hotel

    The Royal Kona has the old Hawaii feel, you can see Hawaiian royalty sitting by the koi ponds in the cool breeze, listening to the pounding of the surf and enjoying a pina colada and the delicious puupuus from the bar. The location is perfect, the rooms bright and regal with wooden sliding shutters, and the staff could not be friendlier or more professional. Walk to town, to the farmers’ market, or for coffee or dinner along the water where schools of yellow tang glow. Or just stay there for the luau or local music by the sea. It really is one of the last great hotels in Hawaii.
