Fodor's Review

What this big concrete structure lacks in intimacy, it makes up for with its beautifully manicured grounds, historic sense of place, renovated interiors, and stunning location on Keauhou Bay. Longtime Big Island visitors might remember the hotel as the old Kona Surf. Today it has a beautiful lobby lounge where wine tastings are held each evening. Many rooms have great views of the bay and feel like they're right on the water. Each is decorated in a modern Polynesian style

inspired by renowned Hawaii designer Sig Zane. Those traveling with kids appreciate the pool, one of the coolest on the island, with a slide, waterfalls, and an ocean view. Culture vultures like the historic walking tour with the resort's cultural liaison. A luau, on a grassy lawn with a backdrop of coconut trees, features a live Polynesian show. But perhaps the best part is Rays on the Bay restaurant, which has outstanding food and mantas that glide below the lanai in the glow of a spotlight.
