At Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, a 2017 renovation revealed a new arrival experience, premium guestrooms, and modern interiors. Located on the pristine and protected waters of Anaeho‘omalu Bay, the resort will debut a transformed luxury wing in 2018 with distinct furnishings inspired by its proximity as the closest rooms to the water, and private open air showers on the ground floor room lanais. As part of the transformation, the resort debuted Aka‘ula Lanai, a new espresso bar that transitions to a cocktail lounge at sunset, and a refresh of its popular Hawaii Calls restaurant
You’ll find the amenities you’d expect at a luxury resort, two championship golf courses nearby, an ancient Hawaiian fishpond, and petroglyphs as old as time – all fronting the golden sands of Anaehoomalu Bay. Ideal for swimming, diving and snorkeling or just about any water sport you please. Begin your day with a workout at the fitness center. Spend the afternoon lounging by the infinity pool, summoning cold drinks to your side. There’s a pool reserved for your children and a full-service Mandara Spa just for you. Indulge in a body wrap, facial treatment, and traditional Hawaiian lomilomi massage. Hungry? The Hawaii Calls Restaurant & Lounge serves fine American and Pacific Rim cuisine. Just a short walk from your Hawaii hotel, The Sunset Lu'au on the shores of Anaehoomalu Bay presents traditional Polynesian entertainment and ono (delicious) Hawaiian food.
Where else can you hit over rugged black lava beds, within a chip shot from the Pacific Ocean, while snow-capped Mauna Kea watches? Waikoloa’s two championship courses offer stunning views and thrilling challenges for weekend enthusiasts and more serious players. Immaculate fairways snake through black lava fields and around water hazards to undulating greens. Do play the Beach Course at least once. Its oceanfront 12th hole features jaw-dropping views of humpback whales and the neighbor islands. With golf courses like these, it’s tempting to do nothing else. Nevertheless, we suggest you reserve a day or two to explore. There is no place quite like Hawaii’s Big Island in all the world.
