North Kona on the west coast, is the busiest and most widely known part of the Big Island, it's here the touristy sea-side village of Kailua-Kona is set at the edge of Kailua Bay. This lively, fun town offers a wide variety of dining, bars and quirky shops.
The beaches along this coast do offer exceptional snorkeling. Just east of the town are the slopes of the Hualalai Volcano and there are several scenic drives that provide impressive views of the coast as you wind your way up to the higher elevations.
The sunsets here are legendary, with no high rise buildings or towering hotels, the views are natural and unspoiled.
There is a wide variety of hotels available in Kailua-Kona, call Bon Voyage for advice and prices. Please note that car hire on the Big Island is recommended.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay
and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the
video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.
Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside
café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we
wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed
that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel
Swim in the turquoise waters surrounded by a lava rock landscape and indulge every moment at this 5 star hotel & resort.
Located on the slopes of Mount Hualalai this bed and breakfast is not just an “accommodation,” it is an extraordinary Hawaiian experience which oozes the spirit of Aloha!
