Staying in the Kailua-Kona area on a Big Island getaway is a great way to go
for a lot of reasons, and while you can find luxurious resorts here, the Kona
Coast Resort is a better lodging fit if you are looking for the resort experience
at a lower price. There are also cheaper hotels in Kona
to choose from if you want to pay even less, but the spacious villas at the
Kona Coast Resort might prove too tempting to ignore. There are 267 villa units
at the low-rise Resort at Kona Coast, and all of them provide a home-away-from-home
appeal. When you're not enjoying the comfort and convenience of your villa unit,
the 21 acres of oceanfront grounds at the Kona Coast Resort offer plenty of
things to do.
Whether you opt for a one-bedroom unit or one of the larger two- or three-bedroom spreads at the Resort at Kona Coast, you will have more than 1,000 square feet to work with. You'll also have a large private balcony, which you are bound to get plenty of use out of during your stay. While there is an on-site restaurant at the Kona Coast Resort, you can also take advantage of the fully equipped kitchen in your villa to save money by preparing meals and snacks on your own. The town of Kona is only five miles away, and you can also explore the dining options there if you please, not to mention stop by the grocery stores for supplies.
In addition to the private balcony and kitchen, each villa at the Resort at
Kona Coast features a separate sitting area, cable TV, a DVD player or VCR,
a CD player, a ceiling fan, and its own washer and dryer. High-speed internet
access and air-conditioning are available for a fee, but there are free local
calls if you want to call a local fishing
charter company or book a tour.
Other convenient amenities include a hair dryer, an iron, and a sofa bed. Attractive
furnishings are provided throughout the villas, and the overall decor, while
not overly luxurious, is still elegant.
When you're not enjoying the comfort and convenience of your spacious Kona
Coast Resort villa, the beautiful grounds offer other things to take advantage
of, such as two attractive swimming pools, three hot tubs, a children's pool
and playground, tennis courts, and a fitness center. For those who are interested
in trying some Big Island
scuba diving, the Kona Coast Resort offers dive classes and can help you
arrange open-water ocean dives if you're certified. Fishing and whale
watching are some of the other top activities that can be enjoyed along
the Kona Coast, and Kona Coast Resort guests will be ideally situated for such
pursuits. The resort is also next to the Kona Country Club, where two stunning
golf courses present a challenge for even the most accomplished golfers to relish.
The Kona Coast Resort boasts a terrific location, and if you're up for a day
at the beach, you can walk to the Kahaluu
Beach Park, where snorkeling and surfing are among the popular activities.
Back on the lovely resort grounds, picnic and barbecue areas are available for
social gatherings with friends and family. Families are definitely encouraged
to consider the Kona Coast Resort when making their Big Island vacation plans,
and couples who are planning a wedding,
a honeymoon, or
a romantic getaway are also encouraged to keep it in mind. You could hardly
ask for a better location, and the rates, while not the lowest on the island,
are more than fair.
