Honu Kai . . . A Tropical Paradise with Aloha

Wendi & Dave are your hosts at Honu Kai. They both have many years of experience in executive hospitality and travel services.

Honu Kai, set on a lush tropical 1.3 acre estate, offers a serene, Zen like feel amidst an old growth garden environment ... so relax, rejuvenate your senses and feel at one with nature — whether it’s lounging on the expansive lanai deck, listening to the water flowing into the koi pond, enjoying the garden jacuzzi under the Kona stars, or letting the occasional rain falling on the roof lull you to sleep.

Honu Kai is extremely conscious of our environment and embraces Mālama Honua. We are 100% solar powered and have been recognized as a Platinum Level Green Leader by TripAdvisor, their highest level of recognition. We use biodegradable toiletries, water efficient fixtures, Energy Star appliances, recycle waste, provide reusable water bottles, encourage towel and linen reuse, and serve locally sourced or on-site grown organic produce.

Set up in the temperate zone, we are always at a very comfortable temperature. Our unique Bed & Breakfast offers four rooms, each with en suite bathroom and personalized service beyond compare. There’s Mala Hale, a private bungalow with kitchenette and its own lanai; the Lani & Mahina suites, two large tree-top rooms with sundeck; as well as the spacious Nigori master suite with its separate deck area. A generous hot breakfast, varied daily, is served on the lanai with tropical fruits, Kona coffee, teas & juices. We are a fully licensed B&B and one of a few with a Hawai'i State Dept. of Health site permit allowing us to serve hot breakfasts. With advance notice we are able to handle any dietary or other special requirements.

The main floor is built around an open-air atrium and koi fish pond. The expansive covered lanai deck area offers separate dining and sitting areas for outdoor enjoyment while providing a full panoramic view of the lush landscape. The upper deck offers tropical tree top views and vibrant sunsets along with chaise lounges and umbrella shaded seating. Honu Kai has free high-speed WiFi. Each suite has flat screen TV and Blu-Ray. Other extras at Honu Kai are granite counter outdoor guest kitchen, use of all beach gear, chairs, bags, towels, coolers, boogie boards, sunscreen & snorkel equipment; and clean, modern laundry facilities available to our guests.

We take the true meaning of the ‘Aloha Spirit’ to heart, and put that beautiful energy into all we do … striving to instill 'Hawaiian style' living into our guest’s experience. Come share our amazing island’s Aloha, discover the magic for yourself, and be awed by the magnificence of its diversity … an island that continues to birth itself daily.

Honu Kai ... whether it is a romantic escape for two, a family gathering or a small business retreat. Perfect for special events! Only 10 minutes from Kailua-Kona and the airport.

Concierge Class Service

Building upon many years of experience in executive hospitality and travel services, Honu Kai provides our guests with true concierge class service. We have excellent knowledge of the island, tours, restaurants and private air & ground transportation.

We invite you to experience our commitment to quality guest services, beginning with your trip planning to Big Island . . . even before you book with us. We believe you will find it "Beyond Compare"!

Big Island

Hawaii Island, also called Big Island, is the youngest of the Hawaiian Islands and also the largest. Strong and majestic, it offers an equally bold driving experience, from roadside stories that speak of a remarkable native culture to the infinite colors of nature’s paintbrush.

Home to Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboys) and Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes, Big Island offers experiences found in no other place on earth. A variety of climatic zones, from seasonal snowcapped mountains to black sand beaches, stretch across its vast topography creating rich pockets of adventure for visitors to explore.

In Hawaiian, the term “holo holo” means to go for a walk, drive or a ride. So if your Big Island travels lead you on a holo holo down some almost forgotten byway, you know it was meant to be. In case you are wondering, a rental car is a must and we recommend Hawaii Car Rental.

The Kona Coast is the favored side of Big Island with more sun, water activities, golf and beaches. Honu Kai is centrally located on the Kona Coast and within minutes of a multitude of things to see and do, as well as, many shops and restaurants.
