Our coveted location on the Big Island’s sunny west coast means Bucket List water sports and ‘aina (land) adventures beckon from outside your guest room — and space. Lots of it. We’ve got 32 green, artfully landscaped acres filled with fragrant exotics, blooming tropical greenery, rushing waterfalls and tinkling streams.
Meet locals who can trace their lineage back to the first native Hawaiians. Learn firsthand about our music, dance, food, crafts, legends and traditions. Enjoy a round of oceanfront golf or tennis on one of the country’s top courts. Snorkel in the quiet waters of our private Pauoa Bay and pāʻani (play) on the beach. Spend a blissful afternoon in your own open-air hut of our renowned Spa Without Walls. Relax, reflect and rejuvenate.View Resort Pool View Resort Beach
