King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Resort


Beachfront bliss awaits you at the newly renovated King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Resort.  This hotel offers everything you could need for your IRONMAN World Championship stay, from comfort to convenience – it is the host for registration, the welcome banquet AND the awards ceremony – not to mention being on the doorstep of the event!

This beachfront hotel has recently been renovated with island-inspired décor, modern amenities and spacious terraces.  Your pre and post-race dietary requirements will be more than catered for with 3 fantastic restaurants to choose from plus a dessert parlour and coffee house. When you are not enjoying the pool take full advantage of the direct access to the Pacific Ocean for a swim or take a kayak out on the turquoise waters.

The 1500-square-foot, on-site spa includes 4 treatment rooms, a steam room and sauna as well as a full fitness centre and a yoga studio – all perfect to round off your training pre-race or relax and recover post-race.

Rooms here have also had a revamp and come with a 55″ flat-screen TV, coffee maker, mini refrigerator, air conditioning, digital alarm clock with USB ports and a safe. Plus, any rooms that boast a sea view also have a private balcony or terrace, or a lanai as they are known in Hawai’i.

With weekly live music, private cabana rentals and even an authentic luau restaurant, this really is the ultimate hotel to compliment your IRONMAN World Championship stay in Kona.
