7/3/23: Updated with new Rosewood Elite opening offer and to reflect the resort has opened
Rosewood Kona Village Opened on Hawaii's Big Island on July 1, 2023, in time for summer 2023 travel. The iconic Kona Village resort, which was destroyed by a tsunami in 2011, has reopened after an extensive renovation. There's an even better exclusive Rosewood Elite offer for TravelSort Clients, so read on to learn more.
Rosewood Kona Village Location
Kona Village is located at 72-300 Maheawalu Drive in Kailua-Kona, about a 15-18 minute drive from Kona Airport (KOA) and a short 6 minute drive (or 30 minute walk) from our current favorite Big Island luxury resort, the Four Seasons Hualalai. Note that the island isn't nicknamed the Big Island for nothing; the Volcanoes National Park is over a 2 hour drive away, as is Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, Akaka Falls is a 1 hour 50 minute drive, and Hilo is a 1 hour 30 minute drive.
Rosewood Kona Village Accommodations and Amenities
Set on 81 acres, Rosewood Kona Village encompasses 150 stand alone guest hales and suites. Guest hales are each 600 square feet (except for the Ocean Front Legacy King Hale, which are smaller, at 410 square feet), but vary based on location within the resort and view. Rooms start with the entry level Garden View Hale, above which is the Mountain View Hale, then Lagoon View Hale, Partial Ocean View Hale, Ocean View Hale, Ocean Front Hale, Beach Front Hale and Ocean Front Legacy King Hale.
Suites range from one bedroom to four bedroom suites. Our spot checks for summer-fall 2023 indicated that one bedroom, two bedroom, and four bedroom suites are available.
The resort also has two swimming pools, the Asaya Spa, Moana Restaurant (where daily breakfast is served, with Pacific Rim cuisine in the evenings), Kahuwai Cookhouse near the beach, with local favorites, and also inside Kahuwai Cookhouse, The Market, with grab and go items.
Rosewood Kona Village Rosewood Elite Opening Suite Upgrade Offer
A special Rosewood Elite opening offer is available to TravelSort Clients staying 3 or more nights for stay dates until 12/18/23:
- Reserve at the Ocean View, Ocean Front, or Beach Front Hale rate, enjoy a complimentary upgrade confirmed at booking to a spacious suite (kauhale) of 1000 sq. ft. with a similar view
- Welcome amenity
- Daily full American breakfast at Moana for up to two guests per bedroom (excludes alcohol/specialty items)
- $150 resort credit per bedroom per stay ($600 credit for a four bedroom suite)
For example, let's say you reserve a Beach Front Hale King Hale (600 sq. ft.) for $3250 + taxes per night; you'd enjoy a confirmed upgrade at time of booking to a Beach Front Kauhale (1000 sq. ft.), which would normally be $5900 + taxes per night for those dates, a savings of over $2650 per night, or ~$19,000 for a week long stay. Plus, the kauhales have an outdoor rain shower and accommodate, with the sofa bed, up to two adults and two children, while the hales accommodate up to two adults and one child.
Since the upgrade at booking depends on availability of the next category up when booking, we highly recommend reserving with us soon, to ensure availability of your desired suite (kauhale for your chosen dates.
Alternatively, there's an offer for 20% off One or Two Bedroom Kauhale (Suites) when reserving 6+ nights valid for stay dates until 12/18/23.
