The Ambiance of It
Relaxing, Luxurious, Unforgettable
Luana Ola” in Hawaiian means “To be at leisure, enjoying pleasant surroundings and good health”. Luana Ola Villa & Cottages are located on the tropical Hamakua Coast, near Waipio Valley on the Big Island of Hawaii. Imagine watching from your own private lanai (deck) a panoramic, unobstructed view of the ocean, embraced between a Terra Verdeʹ of Hawai’i and a never boring, brilliant Big Sky. The ocean reflects the sky that is often shaped by the ocean. Seasonally, you can see the whales migrating along the coast, and you can almost always see the rain coming in. The showers are mostly gentle, warm and do not wear out their welcome. And when the trade winds bring a heavy rain, they reward you with a white water river runneth through the gulch guarding you on the left. The sound of thundering white waters passing you as you eat dinner, read, or lay in bed will make you wish for another strong storm to come by. The sky oscillates between azure colors the Mediterranean cannot have, the grey of passing clouds, and on a clear night you can be tempted to pretend you are grabbing a sparkling jewel from a pitch black heaven.
Spend the whole day simply relaxing or visit nearby Waipio Valley, the Big Island’s Grand Canyon with an ocean starting at a black sand beach, or drive 20 minutes to the Akaka Falls, among the tallest cascading falls in North America. Hilo, the Capital, is 45 minutes south of us. Kona is 50 minutes away. Hapuna Beach, voted the best beach in the State of Hawai’i and one of the top 10 beaches in the U.S., is 40 minutes from us. The active part of the Mauna Loa Volcano (the red eye) is 1.5 hours away. Our location is completely sheltered from the active vents on the Island by the massive 14,000 feet Mauna Kea Mountain.
