The Palms Cliff House Inn is a Unique and Private Luxury Alternative to Traditional Hilo Area Hotels

Welcome to Honomu, North Hilo, Hawaii - The Gateway to Akaka Falls. A Great Location for Exploring Honomu, Hilo, Volcano National Park, the Historic Hamakua Corridor, Mauna Kea, and the Entire Big Island of Hawaii.

The Palms Cliff House Inn is a legal, permitted, & inspected property operating on the Big Island of Hawaii. Book with confidence, knowing that you will be arriving to a clean, secure, and professionally operated business.

Located in the North Hilo District along the historic Hamakua Coast which provides our guests with a central location for visiting Hilo, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Mauna Kea, the Puna District, Waimea Town as well as the many beautiful waterfalls and beaches along the Hamakua Coast. Whale season is from December through April; however, Spinner dolphin frolic in Pohakunanu Bay year round. Our Inn is home to many local birds as well.

Special Note: Due to the Volcanic activity that occurred on the southern end of the Big Island in 2018, there was a significant drop in visitors to Hawaii Island. (That volcanic activity has ended) As a result, many accommodations and Tour/Activity companies did not survive the economic impact of the lowest visitor arrivals for the past 20 years. Happily we made it through without the loss of ANY of our staff- thanks in large part to our Island kama’aina staying with us. As a result, The Palms Cliff House Inn is now the only Luxury Level Accommodation on the east side of Hawaii Island.

Our goal is to not only survive, but to thrive. so if you have any special request or questions, please feel freee to contact us. We will make your stay with us memorable, for all the right reasons.

What We Offer

We are not a typical Bed & Breakfast

The Palms Cliff House Inn's private ocean front 3.5 acre estate ensures quiet relaxation. When we decided to open our home to guests as a boutique Bed and Breakfast, our goal was to create our Inn to be as unique as the Big Island. We set out to offer guests unique luxuries that are usually found only at large resorts. Items like private entrances to your room like a hotel, private bathrooms - no sharing!, Quiet rooms - a must when traveling, private dining tables - invite others to join you only if you are in the mood, and comfortable beds - another must have when traveling. No matter what it is that leads you to the Big Island of Hawaii, discover the aloha of old Hawaii at The Palms Cliff House Inn.

If you want a unique experience, this is the place for you. Voted Best Bed and Breakfast in East Hawaii 7 years, listing among the Top 10 Inns by Outside Magazine, and according to the Chicago Tribune; we have the most beautiful rooms in Hawaii. That might be a bit over the top, but we do think they are lovely, and comfortable.
