If you’re in need of a getaway, Waikoloa Beach Resort is the premier all-inclusive resort on the big island.

“Waikoloa Beach Resort is truly the gathering place of the Kohala Coast,” said Hanna Bree, a property marketing manager at Queen’s Marketplace.

Visit Queen’s Marketplace, an outdoor shopping center with locally-owned shops, food and activities; or go to King’s Shops for luxury goods and fine dining. If you’re looking to putt, head to Waikoloa Beach Resort Golf to play their resort-length golf course. It won’t beat you up with its length, but it will certainly be a fun challenge for beginners and experts alike. Plus, its seventh hole is one of the most beautiful holes on any golf course.

After a fun day of shopping, yoga or golf, rest your head at the Hilton Waikoloa Village or the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa. The Hilton, which Bree describes as “legendary,” has multiple pools, a fountain and its iconic grand staircase in front. The Marriott has a selection of oceanfront rooms facing the beach as well as a newly renovated pool and delicious drinks.
