Boutique Hotel Quality at a Bed & Breakfast

“Aloha” is more than a word of greeting or farewell. Aloha means mutual regard and affection and extends warmth in caring with no obligation in return. We take the true meaning of the ‘Aloha Spirit’ to heart, and put that beautiful energy into all we do … we strive to instill 'Hawaiian style' living into our guest’s experience and provide a level of quality that is beyond compare!

Your visit to Big Island will be filled with "Aloha Spirit" in our plantation style Bed & Breakfast along with concierge class service you would expect in a boutique hotel. Come share our amazing island’s Aloha and discover the magic for yourself.


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.
