The gentle warm tropical breeze flutters in the palm leaves swaying over your lounger as you watch the paddleboards glide over the calm waters of the bay. As you reach for the little pink umbrella protruding from your Mai Tai from the pool bar you realize you are really in heaven, and it’s not a dream. In a matter of a few hours you have been transported to an adventure of a lifetime most everyone hopes to experience, and can with minimal planning. You are on the island of Hawaii, the “Big Island” in Waikoloa on the Kona Coast, vacationing at Hiltons Premier resort, the Hilton Waikoloa Village. www.hiltonwaikoloavillage.com
Each island in Hawaii offers resorts and condo’s for escaping the busy life on the mainland, and here is where busy is unacceptable. When the locals say, “hang loose” it’s not only toes on the edge of a surfboard, but an attitude, a way of life. You can enjoy your stay at the Hilton Waikoloa and never leave the complex if relaxation is your plan. Experience multiple pools; private beautiful sandy beach’s, and if months of stress are screaming at you for help a cure for that too. A visit to the Hohala Spa at this resort, or a massage under your private oceanfront canopy, will put you in a nirvana state of mind and body.
Activities available directly at the resort include surfing, world class snorkeling, ocean fishing, and paddle boarding, if you want to test your balance. Another activity / sport many people dream of doing but hesitate to experience is Scuba Diving. Hawaii is an excellent environment to experience Scuba Diving for the first time. Choose the “Discover Scuba” program, or become a PADI Certified Diver during your stay, in only a couple mornings. The thrills and relaxation discovered in the underwater world here in Hawaii could start a journey of adventure worldwide. Contact Capt. Doug or Capt. James to arrange for your scuba experience directly from you resorts beach. www.Waikoloacoastdivers.com
Dining is an adventure day and night, from lagoon breakfast or buffet, burgers and beer or slice of pizza poolside, to one of the Chinese or Japanese restaurants. Traditional Hawaiian fare is available in a resort restaurant and don’t forget this resort has one of the best Luau’s on the island, with a spectacular show. As you watch the show, enjoying tropical pleasures on ice, watch as native Hawaiians recover buried underground a whole hog that’s been steaming on a bed of rocks. Dining at the Hilton offers you choices for every budget, from family style to candlelight romantic dinners for two on the beach.
Your stay at the Hilton can and will be whatever you desire, whether it be a standard room overlooking one of the many gardens, to spectacular multi-room suites overlooking the pools and ocean.
