Big Island Hawaii’s sun drenched Kohala Coast is a favorite retreat for neighbor island residents and visitors from around the world. Four renowned resorts are located here: the Mauna Kea Resort, the Mauna Lani Resort, the Waikoloa Beach Resort and Hualalai Resort. Each resort is anchored by two hotels supporting golf courses, tennis gardens and some of the best regional cuisine restaurants in the state.The most luxurious hotel and residential accommodations can be found at Hualalai’s Four Season Hotel and neighboring Kukio, a private residential neighborhood. For an “old Hawaii” experience and the island’s best two white sand beaches, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel has been a Kohala Coast favorite since the early sixties. The Mauna Kea Hotel’s sister property, the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is home to many conferences and conventions, especially medical continuing education groups. At the Mauna Lani Resort, the Fairmont Orchid Hotel offers grand hotel opulence. At the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows your family can rent a luxurious tropical bungalow on the lagoon. For more modest budgets, there are many condominiums from which to choose. Down the road, a family favorite is the Hilton Waikoloa Hotel at the Waikoloa Beach Resort. The hotel grounds are vast, featuring water slides, lagoons and pools that kids and young adults love.
