Watch the waves from the Queen Bed, Dining Table or the Lanai. Enjoy fresh Papaya, Mango, or Pineapple while watching the Ocean and perhaps seeing Dolphins or Whales or Parasailers pass by! The Queen bed has individual reading lights for your individual needs. The kitchen is fully equipped to allow preparation of a full meal or a snack. The washer and dryer in the unit will perhaps allow you to pack fewer items for your vacation. The unit has Air conditioning and the Ocean Breeze wafts through the unit with the open windows. Enjoy a walk or run along Alii Drive on this pedestrian friendly roadway with stunning views of the Ocean and Mountains. Watch the surfers at Banyan's while you Bar-B-Que oceanside and perhaps talk with some of the residents who gather to watch the sunsets. Then explore the Big Island. It has it own character as do each of the Islands and the best way to find your way is to just go and see and do.

We came to Kona to get married. We stayed 10 days and loved it! It was just the right size for us and had all the things we needed. The place was very clean. The building was quiet. Everyone around there was nice, the concierge for the hotel was friendly and helpful. There is a street in front which didn't bother us. We loved the view of the ocean from our bed! Everything worked well. We would definitely stay here again, it was nice and private and just far enough from the busy downtown but close enough to get to everything easily. Recommend this to anyone!
Kona Bali Kai is conveniently located on Alii Drive where there are numerous different types of beaches, all of which are pristine. We saw sea turtles right on the lava rock beach in front of Kona Bali Kai ! There are surfing, magic sands and snorkel beaches all within walking distance of this location.
This end unit was well furnished with kitchen, bath and linen supplies. It is clean and comfortable; the owner is also easy to deal with.
Our only complaint is that we are very light sleepers and Alii Drive can be a bit noisy. However, almost all the accommodation in Kona is situated along this road.
Would we stay at Bali Kai again? Absolutely! We didn't want to leave.
PS: The concierge service in the lobby of Bali Kai is friendly and helpful for booking tours or just asking questions.
Also, arranging for a rental car well in advance starting from the beginning of the vacation is useful as the taxi/shuttle fare from the airport is rather pricy.
This cozy studio was perfect for our stay. Beautiful ocean view from the patio and the bed. It was quiet enough to hear the waves crashing at night with the door open. All of the neighbors were very friendly and gave us some good advice on what to check out on the big island. It was nice to have a full kitchen so we didn't have to eat out every meal. Beach supplies (mats, towels and beach chairs) were provided and very helpful. Across the street behind the building is a great place to take in the sunset on a chaise lounge. I would recommend this studio to anybody wanting to visit the big island. We wish were back there right now!
