What to expect . . .
After landing in Kona Airport (KOA),
pick up your free included rental car at Kona Airport.
Check into the nostalgic Royal Kona Resort, built in the early 70's, by Conrad Hilton & Hilton Hotels. This property became famously known as the KONA HILTON. Today it is owned by the Hogan family and still retains all the charm and the feel of real Hawaii from the "days of old" with lava rocks, tiki statues, open ocean front bar and lounges, wondering paths, reflective fish ponds, and an abundance of tropical plants, flowers, and trees, all at the edge of the ocean. Resort even has it's own private ocean swimming lagoon.
Hotel concierge can assist with directions to Volcanos Nat'l Park, about a 3 hour drive from Kona. Visit the Parker Ranch. This working cattle ranch occupies thousands of acres and is the largest family owned ranch in the United States. Texas has larger corporate ranches, but this is the largest cattle ranch still privately owned by one family. The ranch has a visitors center and guests are welcome. You can even go for a horseback ride.
That's not all. If you book the ROMANCE SPECIAL package, you will be our guests on a romantic sunset dinner cruise that embarks from the Kona Pier. The 3 hour cruise voyages on beautiful double deck, 65ft, twin hull day cruiser that takes you down the Kona coast to famous Kealakekua Bay, site of the death of Captain Cook, one of the first British explorers to discover Hawaii. After you board and are under way you will be offered a complimentary mai tai and additional drinks are available throughout the night at cost. As you travel, the historian explains the story of this part of Hawaii. Upon arrival to Kealakekua Bay, you enjoy all-you-can-eat buffet dinner while drifting in the calm waters. A musician plays music as the warm sun sets over the horizon. Most cruises are joined by friendly dolphins, and whale season will often provide bigger delights. Plus ROMANCE SPECIAL guests get an added $50 per day resort credit for use at the resort bars, day time snacks, and added meals at resort dining.
