Rosewood Kona Village Will Open 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, is reopening after an extensive renovation. There's an 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 will range from one bedroom to four bedroom suites, although our spot checks for summer-fall 2023 indicated two bedroom and four bedroom suites were available.
The resort will also have 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.
