Royal Kona Resort

Big Island ~ Kailua Kona Area

Even before you are welcomed to the Royal Kona Resort by the gracious staff you will be embraced by a swirl of salt air — ha, in Hawaiian, the life-breath of the islands. You will see it ruffling the fronds of the palm trees that fringe the 12 manicured acres, tossing the waves against the stark black lava rocks at the property’s feet, marching columns of clouds across the uninterrupted expanse of sky. The air here presents you with the perfume of tropical flowers. It is a reminder that you are on the Big Island of Hawai’i, a reminder to breathe, to exhale, and completely relax.

At 390 square feet, the recently remodeled and spacious guest rooms are as expansive as the ocean and mountain skylines they showcase. For even grander appointments, the Corner King rooms offer 450 feet of relaxing space. At the heart of the resort is the Alii Tower, which is home to the open-air lobby, Front Desk, and Don the Beachcomber restaurant.
The Lagoon Tower, on the South side of the resort, overlooks the private beach and saltwater lagoon. It also houses a beauty salon and self-service laundry. To the North, closest to Kailua Kona, is the Bay Tower in which the massage and spa center can be found.

Dining

Designed by renowned Tiki architect George “Pete” Wimberly, the soaring, sheltering roofline of the resort’s signature Don the Beachcomber Restaurant perfectly sets a tropical theme. Hawaiian music wafts through the dining area, flowing past the shaded, waterside tables. Don’t be surprised if you are joined for breakfast by a pod of spinner dolphins, or starting in late October, migrating humpback whales whose breathtaking aerial performances bring the whole bay to a standstill. The dining is as spectacular as the view, a fusion of Asian inspiration, European technique, and the finest, freshest local ingredients.
