Kona Village, A Rosewood Resort

Rosewood Kona

Hawaii deserves some good news, and we would say that the arrival of  Kona Village, A Rosewood Resort is great news. Speaking of hotel groups that are run by women, Rosewood is just out for world domination. Here’s a look at the Kona Village, Rosewood’s new Hawaii hotel. 

History Lesson

Starting with its roots, Kona Village, a Rosewood Resort, is not the first to get its lay of the land. Originally discovered by Polynesian settlers, the deserted fishing hub stayed desolate for decades. The original Kona Village Resort revived the land and prospered for 50 years before a tsunami demolished the property. There is a happy ending, we promise.

After a decade, Rosewood Hotels began building once more, and in 2023 Kona Village arose from a deep slumber. The luxury hotel is still in its infant stage, open for about seven months. So there’s no better time to discover its magic as it settles into a groove.

Magic is in the Detail

Kona Village prides itself on being sustainable along with Rosewood’s other luxury destinations. The 81 acres of beachfront lay across the Kahuwai Bay.  At the heart of Kona is sustainability and Hawaiian integrity. From 100 percent solar paneled fuel, to recycled water, and architectural designs bringing back original Hawaiin culture. Like the Pacific Rim-to-table cuisine, art commissioned by natives and lanais incorporated in nearly every bungalow for optimal views.

There are five restaurants and bars; the original Kona Village Moana and Lū`au where traditional dancing and singing happen right at the table. History is in the detail, like the Shipwreck Bar, made from the original hotel owner’s boat or the thatched roofs.The 150 person accommodation has a choice of rooms or suites from 600 to 6,000 square feet. Award-winning Nicole Hollis designs with restorative calm in mind seen in neutral tones. Speaking of restoration, the Asaya spa incorporates old Polynesian practices with views of Hualālai volcano and plunge pools. You can continue healing with the help of four pools (infinity hot tub included), lush gardens, and  sunset paddle boarding. You know, just another day in Hawaii, except better at Rosewood.
