Courtyard King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel

by | Mar 13, 2012

The King Kam (as it’s known locally) is a Kona fixture. Located next to the Kailua Pier, the hotel is fronted by the tiny but calm Kamakahonu Beach. The Ahu‘ena Heiau is also on the grounds. This area was the home of King Kamehameha during his later years, and his legacy has been adopted by the hotel in paintings and artwork (they give tours).

Rooms can be described as modern and fresh. The design is rooted heavily in ocean and nature patterns. The Rooms either have two queen beds or one king. The infinity pool is very inviting. They have activity vendors on-site to help with everything from yoga classes to parasailing, along with beach gear for rent and cabanas available for rent for a full or half day. The staff shows a lot of aloha toward guests.

King Kam is the center of the universe every October when the Ironman Triathlon takes place. Most of the athletes stay here, as do many from the television crews, and rooms are hard to get then. It’s conveniently located with a beach—all factors combined keep it a Real Gem. Rooms are 348–380 sq. ft., suites are 837 sq. ft.
