When it comes to planning the ultimate Hawaii vacation, there are several factors that play a significant role in choosing the right resort. For starters, you’re going to want to visit for a week, maybe five days, but ultimately nothing less. Second, families and small groups will have members with different tastes and culinary preferences—picky eaters, to the layman—so the dining options must offer variety and creativity. Finally, and probably most importantly, it needs to be affordable.
Fortunately, Hilton Waikoloa Village is on top of the game when it comes to recognizing these facts. It’s no wonder why this Hawaii resort’s “Inclusive Sale” is so popular, as it covers the basics of a great Hawaii getaway and allows for guests to kick back and enjoy everything just a little bit more, since there’s so much less to worry about.
The Deal: Start the day with a perfect breakfast at Nui, before heading out to the stunning lagoon or beyond. Families will love the inclusion of activities like lei-making and ukulele lessons, and even daily one-hour paddleboard and water tricycle rentals. But we don’t blame anyone who wants to spend their time (a minimum of four nights is required) at the Kohala Pool, where drinks are included, before enjoying dinner at Nui Italian, Kona Tap Room, or Kamuela Provision Company (guests can upgrade to the outdoor chef’s menu for $50, too). General seating for the Legends of Hawaii Luau is also included, but reservations must be made in advance.
The Time: … is running out. Everyone should be elated that this deal was extended through July 31, but that means it’s time to book now. The great news is the deal is valid for stays through May 31, 2023. Rates start at $595 per night.
