Going green…or in this case brown…doesn’t mean giving up luxury. At Holualoa Inn, spectacular Pacific Ocean views blend with 30 lush acres of well tended tropical fruit and flower gardens and 4300 Kona Coffee trees. Located 1400 feet above sea level on the slopes of Hualalai, and in the heart of the Kona Coffee Belt, Holualoa Inn offers a Polynesian retreat and the chance to explore a working coffee plantation on the big island of Hawaii.
An expert on processing, roasting and all-things-coffee, Holualoa’s coffee farm manager, Brian Axelrod, is happy to personally escort guests through the plantation offering an up-close- and-personal view into Hawaii’s coffee production and the coffee produced there. While many B&Bs offer signature or custom roasted coffee, Holualoa Inn is among a handful where the beans were grown and processed right out the back door.
After a tour of the coffee plantation, take some time to discover Holualoa, a small town rich in Hawaiian history and culture. You can stroll a palm-fringed path through the celebrated artist’s village and explore the galleries, shops and small eateries. You’ll discover local artist studios, ukulele makers and boutiques featuring handcrafted Island gifts. Located along the Kona Coffee Belt, this Old Hawaii town boasts a bounty of Hawaii’s original coffee farms.
After a day of exploring the coffee culture of Kona country (how’s that for alliteration?), return to Holualoa Inn to relax in the tiled mosaic pool. The traditional plantation-style architecture creates an environment that elicits relaxation upon entering, effortlessly blending with the natural surroundings. Open air lanais capture fragrant garden aromas and soft tropical breezes and guest rooms with private decks open onto spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.
For armchair travelers unable to make it to Holualoa, the Holualoa Inn makes their unique blend of coffee available for purchase online through their coffee company, Brazen Hazen. Only one percent of the coffee grown in the entire world is Kona, making it a true treasure for coffee connoisseurs. Brazen Hazen custom roasts to order, ensuring peak flavor for those ordering. Purchase a pound of Holualoa Inn medium roast coffee, make some at home, and you’ll be instantly transported to this tropical paradise no matter where you are sipping.
