Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay

78-128 Ehukai St., Keauhou, Hawaii, 96740, USA

What this big concrete structure lacks in intimacy, it makes up for with its beautifully manicured grounds, historical sense of place, renovated interiors, and stunning location on Keauhou Bay. Many rooms have great views of the bay and feel like they're right on the water, and each is decorated in a modern Polynesian style. Those traveling with kids appreciate the pool complex, one of the coolest on the island, with a slide, waterfalls, sand-bottom kids' pool, and an ocean view. Historical walking tours are given Tuesday and Thursday, and a luau, on a grassy lawn with a backdrop of coconut trees, features the live Polynesian show Haleo, which highlights the history of the immediate area. But perhaps the best part of the hotel is Rays on the Bay restaurant, which celebrates the mantas that glide below the lanai in the glow of a spotlight.
