The fantastic outdoor pool has plenty for guests of all kinds, with a fun waterslide, beach-style toddler area, relaxing jacuzzis and peaceful shaded spots. There is also a gym, full spa, outdoor sports courts and several fitness classes.

In the area
There are several boutiques in the Sheraton Kona Resort itself and a great farmers’ market every Wednesday on the lawn. The complimentary shuttle bus makes hitting the island’s shops simple, with stops at Keauhou Shopping Centre, Macy’s and Historic Kailua Village.
With landscapes ranging from snow-capped mountains to deserts, volcanos to rainforests there is plenty to see outdoors too. The Flying Fish activity centre onsite offers mountain bike rental, perfect for heading off on one of the many beautiful trails, as well as surfing lessons, deep-sea fishing trips and information on all the local tours.
For a fascinating glimpse into the island’s past, drive up the coast to Puako and see the remarkable petroglyphs or ‘rock art’ carved into the stone thousands of years ago.
