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!

that we did not indulge in at that time.
