A serene, sophisticated resort in an oceanfront setting.
Even if you weren't familiar with this hotel's longstanding reputation for quality service and unforgettable surroundings, you'd be impressed the minute you walked through the door. Located about a 40-minute drive from the Kona International Airport, this hotel is one of the best on the Kohala Coast. The dramatic atrium lobby is filled with fish, a waterfall and flowers, and the staff greets you with freshly squeezed tropical juice and a welcome lei before directing you to your spacious room. Thirty oceanfront acres include three miles of shoreline dotted with bays and inlets. You can choose from garden or ocean views, villas almost right on the ocean and sumptuous bungalows with private pools. The hotel features an outstanding oceanside restaurant, the CanoeHouse, serving contemporary Hawaii cuisine. Activities range from tennis, golf, snorkeling and scuba diving to Hawaiian cultural experiences. For those who simply want to unwind, there are seaside hammocks and a lovely spa.
