The Courtyard King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel is located oceanfront in Kailua-Kona, on what once was a favorite spot for vacationing among Hawaiian royalty. The hotel preserves the culture of the ancient voyagers while offering value for today’s traveler in a beautiful setting. This 460 room Hawaiian-style resort is your gateway to an unforgettable journey of discovery fronted by a quiet swimming cove.
With a view of Kamakahonu Bay, the pool and whirlpool spa are favorite gathering points to enjoy some down time from perhaps having visited the volcano, or explored a coffee plantation. Relax and enjoy a drink and even an appetizer from the pool-side Billfish Bar.
Other property amenities include a Guest Services Desk and Activity Desk, same day valet laundry & dry cleaning services, laundry facilities, parking (fee), the Mall Shops featuring boutiques and convenience store, and well-equipped fitness center.
The hotel offers two unique dining options: Honu’s on the beach and Billfish Bar. Honu’s on the Beach Restaurant is a destination for both visitors and locals. It’s casual dining with a fabulous view with each table looking out to the ocean and Kamakahonu Bay. Open daily for breakfast, dinner and spectacular Friday & Saturday Prime Rib and Seafood buffet dinner. Honu’s offers spacious, open-air indoor/outdoor dining and a private dining room that seats up to 70 guests — perfect for private parties or get togethers. You’ll find the Billfish Poolside Bar & Grille by the pool, serving a great selection of appetizers and tropical drinks from 11 am to 10 pm daily.
There is also the Island Breeze Hawaiian Lu’au, held every Sunday and Tuesday and Thursday evening featuring Hawaiian traditional buffet, including food cooked in an imu (the traditional underground oven), combine with dramatic Hawaiian and Polynesian entertainment to provide guests with an unforgettable evening under the stars.
Recreation is never a problem with beach services, and a Travel Desk that can arrange everything from deep sea fishing to horseback riding. And there is the cove the hotel is located on for safe swimming. The hotel’s location is great, the staff is friendly and helpful and it is a perfect area to explore the Big Island from.
