Crowning a dramatic lava flow, on one of Hawaii Island's most legendary locations, the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay sets the stage for a memorable and truly immersive Hawaiian vacation. Located in the heart of historic Keauhou, this resort offers a gateway to the island's rich heritage, unparalleled beauty and endless adventures - an exciting 100 yard walk to the head of Keauhou Bay.

Centrally located with easy access to the Big Island's greatest adventures, the revitalized Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa is ideally located for family vacations or Hawaiian honeymoons. With Hawaii Volcanoes National Park a drivable distance away and diverse landscapes at every turn, this Hawaii Island resort is where you belong. Unique cultural tours have been designed for guests, including a visit to the Keauhou Holua Slide, a national historical landmark on the slopes of Hualalai Mountain and the immense heiau (temples) honoring Hawaiian ancient places of worship.

Accommodations are as warm and inviting as the brilliant landscape outside your window. All 509 rooms and suites pamper you with abundant luxuries, stylish designs, and contemporary amenities. Plus with an expansive balcony in each room, you'll find ample space to unwind and take in the sweeping views.

Enjoy the fun at the massive fantasy pool, with its 200-foot Manta Ray Super Slide, two Jacuzzis and waterfalls, a children's sandy-bottom play pool, and interactive fountains. A variety of watersports, including paddle boarding, kayaking, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, and much more awaits you at Keauhou Bay. Two 18-hole championship golf courses surround the resort. In addition, tennis, basketball, and sand volleyball courts are available.

As the historical playground of Hawaii's royalty, Keauhou has long been known as a place to rejuvenate and revitalize the spirit. This tradition of healing is nurtured at Ho'ola Spa. The Hawaiian word, ho'ola, means to heal. Hawaii's unique cultural and healing traditions are incorporated into services such as massage, facial and body treatments.

Fresh, local and creative dining provides a flavorful departure for your taste buds. Start the day with a cup of Kona coffee at the Keauhou Coffee Company. Refresh with a tropical smoothie or light lunch at the Holua Poolside Bar, the perfect break from poolside activities. For a lavish breakfast buffet or a dinner with stunning sunset views of the Pacific, visit Rays on the Bay, the only restaurant in the world with viewing of manta rays in their natural habitat. For wine tasting, there's the Silversword Lobby Bar, and for traditional Hawaiian cuisine and the songs and dances of the Pacific, visit The Voice of Life luau and dinner show.

    A Perfect Place to Rejuvenate

    Had to be in Kona for work. Loved this resort. Nice big rooms. Beautiful unobstructed views of the ocean. Loved the charging stations on both sides of the bed. Adults only pool is great for peace and quiet. The pool has floating chairs that are great for cooling off in the summer. The pool bar serves a frose (frozen rose with a drizzle of strawberry vodka) that I highly recommend. Walking path down to a secluded spiritual place. If you like to meditate...I would recommend going down there. You can feel the energy of this special place that is sacred to Native Hawaiians. I felt so rejuvenated after spending time there. I look forward to my next stay!!!!

    Downtrodden

    We were excited to be coming back to this hotel after enjoying our visit here four years ago. This hotel has gone way downhill in these four years. The Ac barely works, water pressure is low, and every room reeks of mildew. Insects and cobwebs and mildew in the shower... the staff tries to accommodate but it is beyond their control. The worst were sheets infested with a brown mildew.

    Great water views!

    This hotel is very nice but seemed to need some updating renovations. There were air conditioning issues in the room of our friends and they had to be moved. We enjoyed our visit a lotdespite that, and loved the Big Island!

    Wonderful convention center, charming hotel, friendly staff

    This hotel is beautiful. It has a friendly vibe. Beautiful location. Rooms are nice, in Hawaii you don't stay in your room for too long. Saw Manta Ray at night under the lights in the ocean. I loved the pool. Close to beach, snorkeling, shopping center.
