Home of Hula, Aloha Experience and Your Hawaiian Adventures

Embrace Hawaiian culture. Get lost in the melody. Or try to find it. After all, with a name like Naniloa, translated to mean very beautiful, the hardest part is figuring out what to see — or do — first.

With a new contemporary lobby and room finishes (including $4M of Kim Taylor Reece art throughout) and stunning 180-degree panoramic views of Hilo Bay and Mauna Kea, Hilo’s most incredible waterfront hotel offers the ideal location to venture out of and explore the Island of Adventure. With all the comforts you’ve come to expect and the authentic aloha spirit you’ve come to experience.
