This oceanfront, solar-powered “inn” is really just three exquisite suites, all with private lanais overlooking Waikaloa Beach’s jet-black sand. The sumptuous accommodations include beds with ocean views, separate living rooms, and either a full kitchen or kitchenette. Naia, the largest unit, sleeps four and has a deep soaking tub on the lanai; the romantic firstfloor Honu Suite has a queen bed, hot tub for two on its oceanview deck, and a private outdoor shower. The rooms and grounds are decorated with artifacts collected by your friendly and knowledgeable host, John Romain, during travels across Asia and Polynesia. Carved Balinese doors, Samoan tapa cloths, coconut wood floors, and a thatched-roof gazebo add a rich, authentic elegance to a naturally lovely location. Waikaloa isn’t great for swimming, but it’s an incredible spot to watch the sunrise. All of Hana is within easy walking distance.
