Kona Accommodation

Tri Travel have been travelling to Kona for the Ironman for over 20 years. We work closely with many hotel partners in Kona to provide our athletes with a wide range of accommodation solutions for all budgets. We have secured the best race event accommodation to suit all needs, and our experienced team are the experts in finding athletes their perfect place.

IRONMAN Event Week

Race week in Kona is exciting, and full of different activities for athletes and their families. Our experienced Tri Travel team make sure that our tour members don’t miss anything, and our comprehensive itinerary covers all the functions and events during the lead up to race day. All of the transfers to the functions and events are included, and tour members can choose to partake in as much or as little of the itinerary as they wish.

KAILUA KONA

Kona is of course most famous for the IRONMAN, but there are many other attractions on the island that visitors and holiday makers enjoy.

Coffee drinkers will recognise Kona as the source of some of the best beans in the world. Get your blood pumping with a walk along the “Royal Footsteps” waterfront stretch of Alii Drive, or take stargazing to the next level with a nighttime visit to the summit of Mauna Kea. Waterfalls, volcanoes, and soft black sands are just some of the natural features that make Kailua unique. Shimmy your hips at a hula-filled luau, or get an eyeful of native history at the Kamakahonu compound.

The west coast of Hawaii is known as the “Kona Side” and Kailua-Kona is the lively center of it all. This historic seaside town sits in the middle of the Kona coast, a few miles south of the Kona International Airport (KOA). Not too long ago Kona was a sleepy fishing village. Now, because of its central location and great weather it has transformed into a lively town that is the activity capital of the Big Island. It is the city on the Big Island that is best equipped for tourism.

There are many shops and farmers markets selling locally produced items and there is a good offering of restaurants. This makes Kona a good and central home base to explore the west coast of the island. Relax and look at the waves crashing over the black lava rocks while sipping from a cup of the world-famous Kona coffee, or have some freshly caught ahi (tuna) while recovering from your busy day.
