We need only one word to describe the Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii: magical.

Experience the majesty of this paradise. Ocean Tower, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club anchors the volcanic coastline of the sprawling 62-acre Hilton Waikoloa Village, featuring the island’s finest water recreation, restaurants, shopping and golf courses.

Ocean Tower might become your new favorite vacation resort, even if you’ve traveled to Waikoloa before.

Here are three incredible features of this Big Island property to inspire your next getaway.

1. Jaw-Dropping Views

Staying at Ocean Tower provides picture-perfect photo opportunities of the area’s sweeping ocean views.

Head to Buddha Point to take in the ocean’s blues, the Asian-inspired sculptures — including a serene Buddha statue — or the vivid colors of a Hawaiian sunset. It’s also a prime vantage point for seasonal whale watching and even a green-flash sunset. Or enjoy the sunrise from the balcony of your Suite for the perfect start to your day.

2. Comforts Of Home

Ocean Tower offers a variety of spacious Suites to fit your travel needs — whether you’re a solo traveler seeking a Studio or a group big enough to fill a 3-Bedroom Suite.

You’ll find enough room to bring your laptop and “work from vacation” or to host a cozy movie night with friends.

Enjoy the kitchenette or fully equipped kitchen, perfect for brewing your morning cup of coffee or sharing a nightcap with friends on the private balcony.

Then explore the property’s amenities, including a 20,000-square-foot pool — with slides for kids and the young at heart — sprawling grounds and beach access. Paddleboard around the resort’s lagoon or snorkel to search for unicorn fish, sea turtles and yellow tang. Wear reef-safe sunscreen to protect the beautiful species that call the lagoon home.

3. Nearby Attractions And Activities

While you could spend an entire vacation relaxing at Ocean Tower, there are plenty more things to do near the property. Play golf at Waikoloa Kings’ Course for even more Kohala coastal views. Hike through Hawaii’s natural beauty, or hop in the car for a day trip to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.  

For an indoor adventure, reserve a spot at a spa for a relaxing day full of pampering. Or shop for souvenirs and local eats at nearby stops like Kings’ Shops and Queens’ Market Place.

No matter how you choose to spend your Big Island getaway, Hilton Grand Vacations is ready to welcome you to paradise.
