Unique cigar experience that I doubt you can find in another place. Definitely is one of the highlights of my trip and I just arrived. Excellent variety of cigars and beverages. Attended by the owner. The good conversation with Richard is a plus that's make this even better.
Just Awesomeness... jaw dropping and game changing. PLEASE make sure you visit Richard and Buddy (the dog) ... cant say enough about this place.
Richard's hanai is more than a lounge—it is hands down the most unique, eclectic, and amazing cigar experience I've ever had. The selection is well curated and Richard is a maestro at hosting. Sunset and a cigar were the best way to wrap up an amazing vacation. I will be back!
This was one of the most unique cigar experiences I’ve had the privilege of experiencing. Richard recommended an amazing cigar that I enjoyed while watching a beautiful sunset over the rolling hills of his property. If you’re looking for something unique in Kona, go here!

Friends. What a wonderful experience and beautiful sunset! Richard’s company and cigar selection was a perfect end to another amazing Big Island day with our friends. Highly recommend!Written
The most unique and absolutely breathtaking experience! Richard’s lounge is a hidden gem of North Kohala. Great cigar selection, killer view, cozy and welcoming atmosphere of old Hawaii - you’ll find all of that at Cigar and Ukulele Lounge! This is THE place for an unforgettable sunset - even if you don’t enjoy cigars. Do yourself a favor and book a relaxing evening at the lounge - you won’t be disappointed!
Feb 2020 well, I like cigars and I hate ukulele's (but love guitars). So they had a good selection of cigars and I bought a couple made with Kauai tobacco (I know, I know...,bad smoker...bad person of white privilege...tobacco bad...tobacco bad...maui wowie, though is GOOD), so forgive me. The ukulele's seemed to be of unusually high quality and there were a half dozen guitars on the wall, including a Gurian nylon string, which frankly is like finding a piece of moon rock. A gurian? I visited Michael gurian in NYC back in the 70's and he's a legend. So in the grand scheme of tacky or weird or overpriced souvenir schlock shops on the planet, this was actually really kind of interesting and if you are disposed towards EITHER cigars or guitars (or ukes) stop in, and more importantly, buy something to keep this type of place in business!

"Richard is a fantastic host who made me feel welcome as one would welcome an old friend. Great conversation as we enjoyed cigars in the most idyllic setting beyond my wildest imagination. We watched the sun set over a stunning view of the ocean and the islands in the distance. I intend to be back."
"Thank you. Couldn’t be happier with my purchase."
