Why stay at ‘Iole?

Surrounded by stunning views of the Kohala mountains and the Pacific ocean our lodging facilities and meeting spaces are flexible, light-filled and feature all the essential amenities for a memorable stewardship retreat or corporate off-site meeting or conference. Within the Pu‘uhonua o ‘Iole campus are ten bungalows and a forty-bed dormitory that combine the comfort of modern accommodations with the natural island beauty of Hawaiʻi.

In accordance with COVID-19 guidelines, we are currently booking smaller, socially-distanced groups for lodging and meetings. These flexible accommodations are the perfect opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the city – at a fraction of our typical hotel or meeting cost.

Formally known as the Kohala Girls School, these buildings were recently restored and have become the heart of the ahupua‘a at ‘Iole. Uniquely situated around our central courtyard and grand lawn, sit six functioning buildings to host a variety of accommodations.
