The Royal Kona Resort in Kona, located on the Big Island of Hawaii, sits on the tip of Kailua Bay, and its spacious rooms are located in three towers: the center Alii Tower, the south Lagoon Tower and the north Bay Tower. Guests enjoy magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean, a private lagoon, Kailua Bay, tropical gardens and a seaside town.

 

Kailua-Kona is located on the Big Island’s leeward side and offers protection from prevailing winds. This means little rain and an average year-round temperature of 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit, which is perfect for enjoying the beach, pool or lanai.

Highlights

The Royal Kona Resort is full service with an oceanfront swimming pool, lighted tennis courts, The Lotus Center spa, full-service hair salon and private swimming lagoon on Kailua Bay. The resort takes advantage of ocean views. The Don the Beachcomber Restaurant, described as Polynesian retro-tiki chic, was designed by tiki architect George Wimberly and sits on the water’s edge.

 

The oceanfront, open air Don’s Mai Tai Bar has a 360-degree ocean view, and Don’s Breezeway Lounge delivers a better full-ocean view. The Royal Kona Luau is an oceanfront production with Hawaiian-style buffet, Samoan fire dance and other exciting activities. The historic Kona Town, filled with shops and restaurants, is within walking distance.

Great place !

I have stayed at other hotels in the Kona area and this was by far the best. Great little oceanside bar, great food at the restaurant, free parking and a short walk to the main town. Even though I had a late check in the staff upgrade my room to an oceanfront at no extra cost.

Great for a family on a budget.

The Royal Kona Resort was an O.K. place to stay. They were still renovating the building so there was work going on like painting and minor construction. The Parking was very confusing when we tried to check in because they also have a luau going on and other people trying to find parking for that. Some people had to park on the roadside first then walk a far distance to the lobby. The Restaurant, Dons Beach Comber was great. The servers were very friendly and there was beautiful Sunsets. The resort was also walking distance to other restaurants and bars. It was easy to head in any direction to go our daily island sight seeing. There are many points of interest in the area.
