This AAA 4-Diamond hotel offers up a healthy dose of Vitamin Sea and takes vacation relaxation to new heights -- or depths -- with sea turtles sunning on its shores, holistic spa treatments and aquatic adventures above and below the water line. Read on to see why you should leave troubles behind and embrace your inner mermaid at this Big Island oceanfront resort.
The resort grounds are overflowing with exotic flora and cascading waterfalls.
The resort rests on a half-moon beach bellying up to a protected cove, ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
Sea turtles are known to take refuge on the hotel’s beach.
Visitors can sightsee at sea level on the resort’s kayaks, canoes and paddleboards.
Or take floating yoga classes.
Catering to water nymphs, the huge swimming pool stays open around-the-clock.
Just steps from the shoreline, pescatarians can load up on seafood from the AAA 4-Diamond Brown’s Beach House.
Or try deep sea delicacies like urchin eggs and octopus at Norio’s sushi bar.
You’re never far from the water here; all rooms have private lanais with partial or full ocean views, even the lobby.
Soothe salty, sun-weary skin with island treatments like coconut oil massages and Kona-coffee scrubs in the Spa Without Walls’ oceanfront cabanas.
The Polynesian-style beachside bar keeps sunbathers hydrated with tropical cocktails.
Watch the sun sink into the Pacific Ocean from the shoreline during the nightly torch lighting ceremony.
