Our Honeymoon on the Big Island of Hawaii

After 2 glorious days in Waikiki and about a twenty minute flight on Hawaiian air (from Honolulu to Kona) we began a 7 day and 6 night adventure in bliss on Hawaii's Big Island.  The Hilton Waikoloa Village & Kohala Spa was the most beautiful hotel that we have ever stayed at.  It is situated on 62 oceanfront acres and includes the Dolphin Quest Learning Center, a waterfall, a four acre lagoon, a complete service health & beauty spa, an 18-hole seaside putting course, and the most lush landscape that you have ever seen.   The sheer size of this hotel makes it advisable to catch a monorail or to float on a mahogany canal boat to your hotel room.  If you do have the time, walking through the museum walkway to your room is an unforgettable experience.  It contains millions of dollars of artifacts and specialized art with a definite oriental flavor.  We can't say enough about this hotel!

Island hopping takes only 20 to 30 minutes.
  Paradise in the middle of a lava covered island.
Picture perfect from our balcony on the executive floor, and all this was free after redeeming Doug's Hilton HHonors points.  But now we are hooked!
  Dolphin Quest brings man and animal together.  By reservation only, children and adults may swim with these magnificent creatures under the supervision of professional Dolphin trainers.
You can rock yourself to sleep in a comfy hammock and be kissed by the aromatic island breezes.  (Just be sure that you have sunscreen on!)
  The Monorail is the most efficient method of transportation on the hotel grounds, but (if time permits) the boat is definitely the most romantic.

There is nothing like a romantic boat ride at sunset with the one you love!

Top right: But don't kid yourself, the water temperature will jolt all you Floridians back to reality.  It's COLD (relatively speaking).

Left: For the kids (and big kids) the water slide is a popular attraction.  Almost every pool on the property is equipped with one.

Right: A cabana used for a massage by the sea--a luxury that we did not indulge in at that time.
