The Island of Hawaiʻi, often called the ‘Big Island,’ is exactly as it sounds — vast. Twice the size of all the other Hawaiian Islands combined, Hawaii Island includes 11 of the world’s 13 climate zones, making it an incredibly diverse landmass, including everything from deserts to rainforest and snowy mountain peaks to tropical beaches.
Among the sprawling, diverging landscapes and distinctive vistas, lies the historic seaside town of Kailua-Kona on the west side of Hawaii Island. This popular tourist destination boasts ample shopping, dining and ocean activities to please everyone from honeymooning couples to vacationing families. Because this popular tourist town attracts visitors from all walks of life, there are plenty of lodging accommodations for guests to choose from. Half the fun is researching the variety of lodging options to find the perfect one to suit your needs and budget.
