The Big Island is home to a broad spectrum of resorts that make homes high up in the cool climate of Volcano Village down to the sunny coast of Kailua-Kona. Accommodation on the Big Island vary greatly in style and type. Large resorts are reserved for the Kona Coast, while along the Hamakua and far inland vacation rentals and cabins are the only option. In Hilo mid-sized resorts dot the edges of Hilo Bay, offering panoramic views of the volcano and coastline.
The gigh class resorts along the Kona Coast offer luxurious amenities for complete unwinding, and some of these resorts offer all inclusive packages which include everything from food to entertainment. Over in lush Hilo, Naniloa Volcanos Resort is a beautiful place to stay, to relax and enjoy the peaceful lifestyle of the east side of the island. Next door is the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel, another oceanfront mid-sized resort that offers basic comforts and an ideal location.
Down along the Puna Coast lies a truly unique resort, Kalani Oceanside Retreat. Nestled in the jungle and surrounded by miles of undeveloped land, Kalani is a custom resort with separate cabins, activities, a pool and a sauna. It's not far from attractions like geothermal heated ponds and views of the lava.
