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 rooms and grounds are decorated with artifacts that your friendly and knowledgeable host, John Romain, collected during travels across Asia and Polynesia. Carved Balinese doors, Samoan tapa cloths, coconut wood floors, and a thatched-roof gazebo (where breakfast is served) add a rich and 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.
