Very grateful for the Hawaiian Airlines Premiere Lounge in Kona! The airport in Kona is open air and your only options for an air conditioned room is the dining area or the lounge but you ether have to have a Pualani Gold or Platinum membership to get access.
I did wish they made more of an effort with the amenities in the lounge. Honolulu used to offer food and now they are limited to soda’s, coffee and teas and small pre-packages snack mixes. Still, the AC was probably the best thing about this place and we all enjoyed the quiet time since there were only 8 people (including our party of 5) in the entire room.
Is it worth the $299 membership or credit card spending limits? Probably.
