From the Hawaiian artifacts in the garden to the tropical interiors, this charming beachfront hotel is full of aloha—locals say it's one of the few resorts on the island where you can get a true Hawaiian experience. The entire staff takes part in the hotel's ongoing Pookela program, which teaches guests about the history, traditions, and values of Hawaiian culture. You can participate by taking complimentary classes in Hawaiian cultural activities and touring the native garden. The spacious rooms are decorated with Hawaiian motifs, wicker, and rattan; each has a lanai and faces either the beach beyond the courtyard or the lush mountains. The Tiki Terrace restaurant serves delicious meals and one of the most bountiful Sunday brunches on the island.
