We were very impressed with the new Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay. From its beautiful entrance to its pool side ocean views this hotel is a jewel of Hawaii. The spa and fitness center, oceanfront Crystal Blue Lounge with its evening manta ray watch, water activities (including the longest waterslide in Hawaii), golf and tennis make this one of the top on our list of Hawaii vacation spots.

Restaurant Name: Caffe Hahalua
Food Type: Coffee/Dessert
Price Range: $
Open: Daily 6am - 6pm

Wake up and savor our freshly brewed, gourmet coffees along with a tantalizing array of pastries to start your day.

To cool your afternoons, stop by for refreshing Italian Gelato selections. Light snacks round out the offerings from this quaint "Hawaiian style" coffee stop located pool side, interior atrium.

Oh, and Hahalua? It means Manta Ray of course!
Restaurant Name: Crystal Blue
Food Type: Drinks
Price Range: $$
Open: Daily 4pm - 11pm

Crystal Blue has rapidly become the destination of choice for adults from late afternoon to late evening. The bar serves pupus (hors d'oeuvres) along with exotic and traditional cocktails, premium wines by the bottle and by the glass, and an international selection of beers. An array of fruit juices, non-alcoholic tropical drinks, soft drinks and fruit smoothies adds to the extensive list of refreshments.

Crystal Blue is the resort's most popular spot for panoramic sunset views and sighting of Kona's famous "green flash." Nearby is the Manta Ray viewing area where guests can watch these fascinating creatures most evenings just offshore.

With an azure sea stretching toward the horizon, a calm bay reaching toward verdant hills of Kona coffee, and stark black lava all around, Crystal Blue's Terrace may well be the most stunning outdoor space in all Hawaii. From the promontory on the rocks at the entrance to Keauhou Bay, this wide open terrace is perfect for welcome receptions, themed parties or elegant dinners under the stars. The entertainment? Compliments of the manta ray feeding just off shore most evenings.

Comfortable living-room-style seating means Crystal Blue is the perfect place for meeting old friends and making new acquaintances. Chess, backgammon and checkers games add to the relaxing yet upbeat ambiance of Crystal Blue. Local island entertainment completes the setting and rounds out every visitor's Crystal Blue experience.
Restaurant Name: Kai Restaurant
Food Type: Local Cuisine
Price Range: $$$
Open: 6:30am - 10:30am, 6:30pm - 9pm

Restaurant Kai is aptly named. Kai is the Hawaiian word for ocean and from this restaurant's setting on the northern end of the resort, expansive views of serene Keauhou Bay and the Kona Coastline make it a prime dining spot. Here, in an area once known as "Pa'akai Point" ancient Hawaiians collected precious sea salt. Today, as then, rolling surf collides against black lava outcroppings where pockets of water collect, evaporate and leave salt drying in the hot Hawaiian sun.

For breakfast, Kai offers a lavish buffet of morning favorites punctuated by fresh tropical fruits and juices. Families applaud kid-friendly selections and adults appreciate the variety of healthy selections.

Each evening, Kai is transformed to showcase a backdrop of shimmering moonlight amidst a luxuriant setting. To celebrate the ocean, seafood highlights the dinner menu of surprising sophistication that fuses the cuisines of many cultures of Hawaii in delightful flavor combinations. Each Saturday evening, Kai presents a bountiful Seafood Buffet.
Restaurant Name: Manta Ray Bar & Grill
Food Type: Misc
Price Range: $$
Open: Daily 11am - 9:30pm

What People Are Saying:

Great Family Resort!!

We chose the Sheraton Keauhou because we heard that it is a family-oriented hotel. Our kids fell in love with the pool. It has a sand beach, waterfalls, bridges, fountains and a 200 foot-long "Lava Slide". There is also an Activities Center and daily children's programs with arts and crafts and a little history of the Islands. The room was great, roomy and clean. The beds were new and quite comfortable. It had a refrigerator was nice to keep cold drinks and water on hand. Yes this hotel is not right in the middle of the 'strip' but that what makes it a resort-you get to relax! Town is only a 10 min drive & theres some shops w/in 5 mins. The best part of this hotel are the manta ray's. The hotel overlooks iagiant cliff and a large group of mantas come here every night to feed. The hotel has a spotlight that shines on them all night. They put on a free show, dancing and playing in the waters below. The kids were mesmerized (so were we). One terrific feature of the Sheraton is their Hospitality Suite. We had a a late flight out and asked about a alate check-out. The staff suggested that we check-out at our required time and they would hold our luggage while we took advanatge of a few more hours on the Island. When we returned, we were shown their Hospitality Suite, this is a fully stocked room. They give it to you at no charge for 1 hour. Plenty of time to shower and change. We found this hotel a terrific place to stay, and our children agree. Mahalo!

My wife, myself and good friends of ours travelled to the resort in May. What wonderful people!!! The service was world class, the resort was absolutely gorgeous.. We've been to many places around the world and throughout the U.S. and have had no better experience. We'll be going back. That is certain!
