Hilton Waikoloa Village

More Hawaiian than You Can Imagine...

The Resort’s mile-long Museum Walk provides a leisurely stroll along pink flagstone walkways flanked by tropical gardens and magnificent examples of Polynesian and Oriental artwork.

On the Big Island of Hawaii, southernmost in the chain of Hawaiian Islands, the first daring Polynesians pulled their rugged dugouts ashore after crossing 2,000 miles of vast Pacific Ocean. Here, they settled in the shadow of active volcanoes where today the fertile land yields rich harvests of macadamia nuts, sun-ripened papayas and Kona coffee.


The Big Island is a treasure trove of striking contrasts– tropical beaches and snow-capped mountains, ancient petroglyphs and modern luxury resorts, like the lavish Hilton Waikoloa Village. Full of secrets and surprises, this outstanding property on the Kohala Coast is more Hawaii than you can imagine, all rolled into one adventure-filled tropical destination.


Guests arriving at Hilton Waikoloa Village can begin their adventure with a relaxing ride in a mahogany canal boat, winding along languid waterways to their spacious accommodations in one of three low-rise towers. If they prefer, guests can travel by air-conditioned tram, whisking past natural lagoons, waterfalls and hidden tropical grottos. The resort’s 1,240 guestrooms and suites in the Lagoon, Palace and Ocean towers are filled with exotic art and antiques; each has a private lanai from which to enjoy tropical breezes and beautiful ocean, golf course or mountain views.


The nine restaurants of Hilton Waikoloa Village are as varied and unique as the Hawaiian Islands themselves. From casual outdoor dining at Orchid Cafe to the elegance of a traditional Japanese meal at Imari’s, each restaurant offers distinct culinary discoveries and impeccable service.


The ocean waters of Waiulua Bay flow naturally to the sands of Hilton Waikoloa’s unique Lagoon Beach. One end of this protected salt-water lagoon is the site of Dolphin Quest, an incredible program operated by marine mammal specialists who are committed to the conservation of dolphins and the marine ecosystem. In the waters of this crystal-clear lagoon, a small group of bottlenose dolphins cavorts in the sandy shallows and interacts with visitors in an educational encounter unlike any other. So popular is this hands-on program that encounters may be book­ed up to 60 days in advance online at dolphinquest.org.


But dolphins are just one of the amazing attractions at Hilton Waikoloa Village. The resort’s mile-long Museum Walk is a leisurely stroll along pink flagstone walkways flanked by tropical gardens, waterways filled with brilliant tropical fish and magnificent examples of Polynesian and Oriental artwork.
Three expansive pools located on the grounds invite relaxation and swimming featuring waterfalls, a giant water slide and even a lazy current in the Kohala River Pool. And the European-style Kohala Spa, with its wide range of services, is dedicated to the Hawaiian ideal of harmony between body and spirit for total well being.


Hilton Waikoloa Village is a water wonderland, where guests snorkeling in the resort’s four-acre lagoon may spot rare green sea turtles or schools of tropical fish. The hotel’s watersport specialists offer deep-water adventure on their 50-foot luxury catamaran. Snorkel sails, scuba diving, whale watch cruises or a romantic evening champagne sail are some of the options available. Nearby Kailua-Kona is the deep-sea fishing capital of the world where anglers regularly battle billfish and blue marlin.


There’s no better way to explore the ranchlands that surround Hilton Waikoloa Village than on horseback. Riders can discover cinder cones and ancient Hawaiian ruins.


Carved into the jagged lava fields and flowing along­side the ocean are two championship golf courses at the adjacent Waikoloa Golf Club. The Beach Course is a design of dramatic contrast, a stunning transition from black lava to deep-green golf course. The Kings’ Course was a collaboration of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, who created a delicate balance between challenge and visual beauty in this links-style layout. In its first full year of operation, the Kings’ Course was voted runner-up for “Best New Resort Course in America” by Golf Digest.


On this ever-changing island, where Kilauea continues to send molten lava pouring into the sea, one thing is certain... Hilton Waikoloa Village is more Hawaii than one could ever hope for.
