Hale' Holua Resort at Keauhou Bay


Welcome to Hale' Holua Resort


This is a culturally and historically significant property on the Big Island of Hawaii located walking distance to the birthplace of King Kamehameha III and situated near the finish line of the old Holua Slide Trail, a designated National Historic Landmark and the largest remaining remnant of such on all the islands.  Surrounded tightly by history and culture, we are also nestled in the heart of the North Kona District “Resort Node” surrounding us with resort amenities including golf, tennis. pickleball, shopping, theaters, dining, hotels, charter fishing, SUP, diving, outrigger canoeing, ocean & coastal tours and much more.  Most are walking distance as are both Keauhou Bay and historic He’eia Bay.

Development is underway of a modest 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Hawaiian-style cottage which sleeps up to six guests, with two poolside bungalows sleeping an additional two guests in each.  There's a swimming pool tucked away on the northeast corner of the property and an outdoor kitchen rounds out the recreation area.  A water-mans delight capturing the vibe of old Hawaii.


Holua” or ‘lava sled’ is a narrow wooden sled which pre-modern Hawaiians used mostly for mountainside recreation. The Holua trail finsh line was at a sacred waterfront location called Heeia Bay, just to the west of our property.  Having the blessing of caretaking this historic property, sitting along the old Hiolua Trail, we will honor the Holua tradition in as many ways as possible, while payinig homage to watermen & women, and the deep, rich history & culture of Keauhou Bay.
