Hale Maluhia Country Inn

B&b in Holualoa

Take an exuberant grab-bag run by a friendly couple and stuff it with Japanese, Hawaiian and bohemian style and sensibility. Put it all on a jungle mountain abutting some coffee plantations and boom, there's Hale Maluhia. We're not fans of the smallest, cheapest rooms, so go up a little in price or opt for one of the excellent private cottages.

The cottages feel like Shinto-Tropical retreat rooms designed by a Zen monk who was really into the Swiss Family Robinson story.
