KONA'S BEST LOCATION - With a dramatic oceanfront setting overlooking picturesque Kailua Bay, the Royal Kona Resort offers great value and is conveniently located within walking distance to the village of Kailua-Kona with its many fine restaurants, shops, historical sites, and activities.
Ideally situated on 12 acres of tropical gardens on a lava promontory, the Royal Kona Resort is surrounded on three sides by the crystal clear waters of the blue Pacific. The resort is comprised of three guestroom towers, and all guestrooms in the Alii and Lagoon Towers were completely remodeled in 2006, offering guests a fresh, new, contemporary decor. The resort's Bay Tower offers travelers a choice of comfortable, value-priced guestrooms which were refurbished in 2001. Each of the resort's spacious guestrooms feature large outdoor lanai's on which guests can enjoy the tranquility, and take pleasure in beautiful mountain vistas or gaze out across the magnificent Pacific Ocean.
A relaxing open-air lobby and surrounding tropical salt-water fishpond lead out to an expansive oceanfront sundeck and split-level freshwater swimming pool which is impressively perched on a lava flow directly above the ocean. The resort also features a private sandy beach cove and sheltered salt-water swimming lagoon which is perfect for snorkeling.
Other resort amenities include four Tennis Courts available for day or evening play, rejuvenating massage and spa treatments at the resort's Lotus Center, complete hair, nail and skin care salon services, and great on-property shopping. Island specialists are available at the resort's Activity Desk to assist guests in booking tours and to recommend other island attractions, and specialists are also available on-property to assist couples with destination weddings and vow renewal ceremonies.
Kona's very best dining experience is showcased in a truly world-class ocean-side setting at the Royal Kona Resort's award-winning Don The Beachcomber restaurant. And guests will find live entertainment, light meals and a variety of tropical beverages, including the Original Mai Tai, at Don's Mai Tai Bar. With its open-air setting, right on the water's edge, Don's is the perfect spot to enjoy the sights and sounds of all of the activity taking place on Kailua Bay, and a great place to catch a breathtaking Kona sunset. Several nights a week, the resort also presents Kona's only oceanfront Luau, the "Lava Legends and Legacies Polynesian Luau", amidst a lovely oceanfront Coconut Grove.
For a great location in the heart of Kailua-Kona, gracious Hawaiian hospitality and service, and the Big Islands best value, the Royal Kona Resort is an excellent choice.
