Kamuela is one of the top places to vacation on the west side of the Big Island,
and as such, the Kamuela hotels tend to be relatively expensive. A great location
on the Kohala Coast
isn't the only thing that makes for elevated rates at most of the hotels in
Kamuela. The majority of the Kamuela lodging establishments also offer a wide
array of amenities. Hotels such as the Hapuna
Beach Prince Hotel and the Mauna
Kea Beach Hotel, for instance, shower their guests with added perks. In
addition to the resort hotels in Kamuela, visitors can also look to stay at
one of the area bed and breakfast inns or vacation rentals. Luxurious condominium
resorts round out the Kamuela lodging choices.
In addition to considering Kamuela hotels such as the Fairmont Orchid when looking for luxurious accommodations, you can also consider the Villages at Mauna Lani, which offers elegant condominium-style units that offer abundant amenities. A rich decor, ample furnishings, attractive private kitchens, and private balconies that feature wet bars, barbecue grills, and mini-refrigerators are just some of the amenities that the three-bedroom guest units boast at the Villages at Mauna Lani. You'll also enjoy basic amenities such as a hair dryer and an iron. The gated Villages at Mauna Lani Resort offers a fitness center, an attractive swimming pool, and a hot tub for guests to take advantage of when they're not relaxing in their comfortable condos. There is also an on-site pavilion with a catering kitchen and wet bar for guest use. Trips to the nearby beaches are bound to enter the picture at some point during your stay, and you'll be happy to know that Hapuna Beach, Mauna Kea Beach, and some other idyllic sandy stretches are not far off.
The Hawaiian Islands feature their fair share of condominium resorts, and when
it comes to the hotels in Kamuela, the Golf Villas at Mauna Lani is one of the
best. As is the case with Kamuela lodging on the whole, the Golf Villas at Mauna
Lani offer luxurious, and thus expensive, guest units. While the rates are relatively
high, however, you will certainly get your money's worth. Spacious and elegant,
the condo units here offer all the comforts of home, and then some. Fully equipped
kitchens with ample room for cooking and entertaining are standard, as are attractive
furnishings, flat-screen televisions with cable, and private balconies with
grills and wet bars. Parking is available for no extra fee at the Golf Villas
at Mauna Lani, and you are encouraged to rent a car during your Big Island vacation
so you can conveniently make it around to all the top attractions
on the island. You won't need a car to get to the nearby beach, however, nor
will you need one to get to the golf course located next door. Shops and restaurants
are also within walking distance, so it really doesn't get much more convenient
than this when it comes to Kamuela lodging.
When you feel like trading in the resort experience for an accommodation in Kamuela that is a little more intimate, there are some good bed and breakfast inns to choose from. Among the best is the Waimea Gardens Cottage B&B. Unlike most of the Kamuela hotels, the Waimea Gardens Cottage B&B is located near Kamuela Village, which is also known as Waimea Village. Two stream-side cottages and a studio unit make up the choices for accommodations here, and the studio is the cheapest of the bunch. Even though the rates at the Waimea Gardens Cottage B&B are relatively low compared with other Kamuela hotels, you can expect a fair amount of luxury in the guest rooms. The decor is tasteful in each unit, and standard amenities include guest robes, internet access, cable TV, a DVD player, a CD player, and a kitchenette or kitchen. Breakfast is included in the rates at the Waimea Gardens Cottage B&B, and guests are also welcome to use the complimentary beach equipment. Some great beaches, such as Hapuna Beach and Spencer Beach, are less than ten miles away, so the beach equipment is bound to come in handy.
Like the Waimea Gardens Cottage B&B, the Waimea Country Lodge is a good Kamuela
lodging fit for anyone looking to save on rates while visiting the area. This
discount accommodation in Kamuela is located at the base of Mauna Kea, which
is the Big Island's tallest peak, and offers stunning views. The guest units
at the Waimea Country Lodge are attractive enough to suit most tastes, and standard
amenities include a clock radio, a telephone, cable TV, and a private bathroom
with a shower and tub combo. High-speed internet access is available for a fee,
and you can also spend extra on a room with a kitchenette if you want to prepare
meals and snacks. A list of fun things to do awaits you when you're not relaxing
in your guest room at the Waimea Country Lodge. Perhaps you'll do a little hiking
in the area, or maybe a trip to Parker
Ranch will be in the cards.
