The scenery in Hawaii looks so beautiful from your cabin window above Kailua-Kona that you'd be forgiven for feeling sorry when the plane hits the tarmac at Kona International Airport (KOA).
Get ready to wheel your belongings for a little while after walking out of the airport. There aren't any hotels in the immediate area, so you're going to have to try your luck in central Kailua-Kona.
Situated only 7 miles (11 kilometers) from the airport is the Hulihee Palace. If you find yourself with some time to spare, make sure to make your way over to check it out.
Now that you know where you are going and what you'd like to see and do, be sure to reserve your accommodation as soon as you've confirmed your dates.
While you can’t stay in Kona International Airport, the Kona Seaside Hotel is only a short drive away. This budget Hawaii option has a 24-hour front desk and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Other accommodations within driving distance include the luxurious Four Seasons Resort Hualalai and the budget-friendly Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Kailua-Kona. The Four Seasons has a 24-hour front desk, free Wi-Fi and an airport shuttle service, while the Holiday Inn offers free Wi-Fi and complimentary breakfast. Pick your favorite, then get ready to relax shortly after you hit the tarmac at Kona Airport.
