There are special places in Hawaii that awaken the senses – where beauty, wonder and culture come alive to create an unforgettable experience. The Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa is one of those places.
Perched at the edge of historic Keauhou Bay on Hawaii Island, the picturesque resort looks out to the mesmerizing waters of the Pacific Ocean. Above the resort, the lush Hualalai mountain is famous for growing rich Kona coffee.
Here, the deep blue of the ocean, the obsidian black of the lava rock, the vibrant green of the mountain, and the brilliant orange of the sunsets surround guests with the vivid colors of Hawaii. Contemporary island cuisine gives tastebuds a thrill with fresh local ingredients from mountain to sea. Cooling trade winds carry the gentle scent of flowers while live Hawaiian music soothes the soul and washes away the worries of the day.
Families enjoy riding the water slide in the lagoon-style swimming pool, learning songs on the ukulele, and listening to enchanting legends told by cultural practitioners. The resort’s newest experience, the Feast & Fire Luau, features a heart-pounding evening of conch blowing, fire dancing, craft making, and of course, an extravagant luau feast transporting guests back to a time when ancient Hawaiians dined under the stars.
For adventurers, snorkeling with manta rays offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. At night, these gentle creatures gather to feed on plankton, giving snorkelers a close-up view of these flying giants of the sea. Sporting wingspans up to 16 feet, the manta ray ballet is not to be missed. After a short boat ride, snorkelers enter the water and hang onto a flotation platform that illuminates the manta rays below. For many guests, a night with the mantas is the highlight of their trip.
For those who are romantic at heart, the resort’s scenic garden and coastal pathways invite exploration, iridescent Kona sunsets provide moments of wonder, and dancing to the infectious jam of Hawaiian music (in between sips of a Mai Tai), never disappoints. After an eventful evening, the Hoola Spa provides a place of relaxation and rejuvenation rooted in Hawaiian therapies. Utilizing ingredients indigenous to the Hawaiian Islands and sustained by the healing energy of the Keauhou area, the Hoola Spa restores balance and harmony to body, mind and spirit.
Home to over 500 rooms and suites, every guestroom features island-inspired décors, private furnished balconies and generous views. For the ultimate experience, Club-level rooms and suites deliver incredible ocean views, luxe bath amenities, robes and slippers, turn down service and valet service. Club-level guests also receive exclusive access to the private Voyager 47 Club Lounge, providing morning service with tropically inspired breakfasts and happy hours with local-style appetizers and seasonal signature cocktails.
Like the graceful manta ray drawn to the comfort and sanctuary of Keauhou Bay, guests return to the Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa year after year. A place that once visited, remains forever in the heart.
