2017 - The Big Island of Hawaii
I so enjoyed The Big Island in Hawaii! We spent the first 2 nights at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott – lovely property! Located on 15 acres of volcanic landscape in Anaeho Omalu Bay, which is within walking distance to 2 different shopping areas. The beach is reached via walkways that show various volcanic areas and items of interest.
I spent time at the nearby Hilton Waikoloa Village. This Hotel offers a “wow” factor with its beautiful waterfalls and statues and the property is huge. They have 3 different towers on property. They offer a railroad tram and canal boat as a means of transportation.
Other properties I visited included; the Fairmont Orchid, the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel, Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keahou Bay, Royal Kona Resort, the Courtyard King Kamehameha and the Volcano
House, Hawaii’s oldest hotel.
My favorite experience was the Hawai’I Volcanoes National Park, Hawai’I Island’s #1 attraction. Kilauea is one of the world’s most active volcanoes and is celebrating over 30 years of continuous lava flow in 2013. This is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
