I am working on a long project in Kona (yes, tough, I know...) and some of us on the project decided to try the Sheraton. We got a very fair rate, and all of us really enjoyed the hotel. The view through the huge windows in the main lobby are spectacular, and we enjoyed watching the manta rays in the bay. Some people went on the night snorkel/dive to swim with the manta rays, and everyone raved about it.
Room was very clean and comfortable, and internet connection was very good.
The best thing we did was to take the walking tour of the grounds with Lily Dutoit. Lily is a beautiful local woman with many ties to the Hawaiian community and culture. Her talk about the grounds near Keauhou Bay was so interesting, and Lily is wonderfully engaging. At the end of her talk, she chanted an "oli" to give thanks of being able to share the aloha.
We also took the sailing canoe trip on a double-hulled outrigger canoe. We paddled for a bit, and then Kalani turned on the quiet motor, and we moved quietly on the beautiful bay. The water was 80 ft., but it looked like it was only about 10 ft. Kalani also gave a great talk about the history of the area, and explained how important names are in the Hawaiian culture.
I applaud the Sheraton for providing such a beautiful and important cultural option during our stay.
