Planning a trip to the Big Island and specifically West Hawaii? Within a 30 minute drive north of downtown Kailua Kona and 16 miles of the Kona Airport is Waikoloa Resort, an oceanfront resort community which includes beautiful Anaeho’omalu Bay (A-Bay), the King’s Shops and Queen’s Marketplace, the Waikoloa Hilton, the Waikoloa Marriott, and fun “on-the-beach” restaurant and bar, Lava Lava Beach Club. You’ll also find numerous opportunities for four-star dining, golf courses, tennis courts and a world-class spa.
In the midst of all this beauty and entertainment is Hali’i Kai, in the Waikoloa Beach Resort, a luxury condominium development nestled in between the spectacular coastline and the Waikoloa Beach Golf Course. Hali’i Kai offers a variety of top notch amenities that make it one of the best places to vacation on the island of Hawaii.
Relax in the oceanfront salt-water lagoon style pool with a sand-bottomed hot tub near-by. Best time to enjoy is during the sunset as you can lounge on the shallow-pool chairs and watch the sun set into the horizon. Enjoy a Mai Tai or Lava Flow from the nearby bar serving specialty cocktails and appetizers. You can also enjoy the cuisine offered at the exclusive, guests-only Ocean Club with 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean. Amenities also include a fitness hale. The best part of Hali’i Kai? You will enjoy your precious vacation time away from the crowds of the nearby hotels.
Things To Do Near Waikoloa Resort
Get out early in the morning and discover the stunning ½ mile long white sand Hapuna Beach known for swimming, boogie boarding and beach picnics. Drive a few miles to the north and check out the crescent white sand bay of Mauna Kea for swimming, snorkeling and gorgeous views. During winter months you will see hump back whales breaching and if you take a walk along Anaeho’omalu Bay (A-Bay), you will most likely spot turtles relaxing on the lava rocks. Don’t miss the hidden black sand beach, a 20-minute hike along Fishermen’s Trail.
Nearby excursions can take you from adventurous horseback riding or zip-line over a waterfall to a relaxing massage, or long languid stroll on the beach.
