Royal Kona Resort, Big Island

The Royal Kona Resort is located on a 12-acre volcanic outcropping overlooking Kailua Bay. The resort offers a variety of accommodation options spread across its three towers. All offer spacious private lanais, though the rooms themselves at 337 square feet are a little smaller than one might expect. Suites are from 598 to 2,025 square feet. Standard amenities such as large televisions, air-conditioning, refrigerators and coffee makers are provided. Many rooms have very small bathrooms, with a combined shower and bathtub.

A split-level swimming pool, as well as a saltwater lagoon are located on the premises, as are tennis courts, a fitness center and spa. The spa goes further than the usual beauty treatments with yoga classes and even self-improvement courses.

As for dining, the best place to start is perhaps the Royal Kona Luau. This dinner show provides an evening of feasting on authentic island cuisine accompanied by Polynesian music and dances. Other restaurant options include the Don the Beachcomber and the more casual Don's Mai Tai Bar. The former opens daily for breakfast and dinner serving up Pacific fusion cuisine, prime rib and seafood selections. The bar offers Mai Tais and other cocktails, as well as a variety of light snacks and a lunch menu. 

With over 10,000 square feet of meeting space the Royal Kona can accommodate business meetings and wedding receptions. The space is split over seven different rooms, the largest an outdoor space accommodating up to 500 people. The largest indoor space has 1,600 square feet, seating up to 60 guests.
