Nestled along the picturesque Hamakua Coast around 30 minutes North of Hilo, Hawai´i, the Palms Cliff House Inn provides everything you need for a romantic and secluded stay while exploring the East Coast of Big Island. A gorgeous colonial estate extending warm and personalized service in a tranquil and relaxing location with unparalleled views of Honomu Bay.
Spreading over a 3.5 acres estate with lush vegetation and a lively wildlife of birds and lizards, the Inn´s driveway is so unobtrusive that I actually passed it twice before finally making our way to it.
Definitely not a Bed&Breakfast of the ordinary kind, I instantly fell in love with the spacious and colonial design that the premise is laid out in and the extremely personal and warm-hearted service that we received from the owners John and Michelle Gamble and their wonderful front desk associate Tiffany.
The rooms are each kept in an individual design and feature all Ocean views from a private balcony while offering all the amenities that you would expect from a regular large resort.
It is quiet and tranquil and the bed is extremely comfortable. There is plenty of space to unwind for yourself or socialize with other guests that stay at the Inn. Breakfast and other meals are served by John personally on the amazing patio which views truly make it difficult not to get constantly lost in the beautiful scenery and the panoramic vista over the Bay.
Even though we were only here for one night, it was more than evident that we would absolutely return here once the opportunity would come up again. It was one of these places to stay at that you will instantly fall in love with and that you will never forget again.
John and Michelle have done a great job by creating a hideaway for couples and solo travelers who seek a hotel with heart and soul that add that extra value to your holiday apart from material luxuries.
Being ideally located close to Akaka Falls State Park, Hilo, Mauna Kea and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, The Palms Cliff House Inn is so much more than just a Bed&Breakfast on Big Island. It feels like a friend´s place on an island that took my breath away…
