6 reasons to visit Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa

This newly renovated resort makes for a perfect place to stay when visiting Hawaii, the Big Island.

Located on the stunning Kohala Coast the resort’s oceanfront location makes for an ideal beach holiday in paradise, only a 20-minute drive from Kona International Airport.

Sunset Luau

Experiencing an authentic Polynesian show under the stars is a definite must when visiting Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. You’ll enjoy one of the best vantages on the island to enjoy spectacular sunsets, which then becomes a magical backdrop as you are entertained by the island’s talented dancers and singers and indulge in a delicious Polynesian feast.

Waikoloa beach fun

With plenty of palm trees, sun loungers and cabanas for hire, guests can sit back and relax and enjoy the magnificent view. For those wishing for a little more beachside activity, gather the family for a game of beach volleyball, or take a cruise on the glass-bottom boat and learn about Hawaii’s incredible underwater world and its marine life. Enjoy an early-morning snorkel and keep an eye out for the Hawaiian green sea turtles. If you prefer to be above the ocean, hire a kayak or stand-up paddleboard.


Time for a dip

The thrill-seekers of the family, young and old, will be more than satisfied enjoying the water slide. There is also a stunning adults-only infinity pool with spa, which is very relaxing.

Garden games

You’ll find family-fun games on the lush, green lawn either side of the pool. This is a great place to meet other guests and enjoy a game or two before jumping back into the pool.

Hula dancers

Time to snooze

All guest rooms have recently been remodelled, from the Garden/Mountain rooms through to the spacious Royal Suite. We chose to stay in an Ocean Parlor Suite; as a family of four this made for a very comfortable stay with one bedroom and a sofa bed, two bathrooms and an ocean view from the balcony.

Waikoloa kings' and queens' marketplace

For those wishing to head out for a spot of shopping, or grab a coffee or ice-cream, Queens’ MarketPlace and Kings’ Shops are only a short stroll or trolley ride away. Here you will find a collection of boutiques, Hawaiian art galleries, gourmet market and several dining options, plus weekly farmers’ market, live entertainment and free hula, lei-making and other Hawaiian crafts.
