After an incredible week of being wined and dined in Hawaii, I officially understand why people work to live the life of luxury. Usually when I travel, I have to scrimp and save, cram a few clothes into a backpack, eat granola bars and nuts, and sneak on trains n’ stuff, but not this time! This time I was the guest of someone super important, and that made me important by association. (FYI: being important by association is the best way to travel. You get all of the perks, and have zero responsibility).
Anyway, first things first, the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort is amazing, and by amazing, I mean…it’s a total dream. The property is ginormous and full of great restaurants, fun things to do and has an atmosphere that looks…well…pretty much like the most beautiful postcard you’ve ever seen, but real and with better weather and smells like flowers and ocean water.
At the resort, we spent our time sunbathing at any one of the various pools, swimming with dolphins (I am pretty sure I am healed from any future ailment now), snorkeling in the ocean, and eating really delicious food.
Did I say we ate really delicious food? We ate wonderful Chinese food, sushi, fish, crab and lobster. My favorite place to eat at the resort was the Kamuela Provision Company (KPC). KPC is a fancy restaurant overlooking the beach. It is the perfect place for an impressive business dinner, or a romantic getaway. (KPC is the restaurant I am hoping to visit for my 1 year anniversary. Ahem…could someone please mention that to Brandon)?
Not only do they have fine dining and fun things to do at the resort, they have also decorated the resort to the max. The resort includes a beautiful outdoor art exhibit with different pieces of Asian art placed every 5 feet. You can walk along the art museum to get to your destination, or, if you are feeling fancy, you can take a boat, or a small train to get from place to place. Even the transportation is an awesome experience.
You could spend your whole time in Hawaii enjoying this resort, but there are many fun things for you to do in Hawaii during your stay. I’ll share some tips about fun things to do on the big island in the next post.
