Views of the Pacific and Waikoloa Beach Resort’s lush gardens greet you at Naupaka Hale, a luxurious 1,554 sq. ft. end unit condo in the heart of Waikoloa Beach Resort.
Whether you’re in need of a hot tub soak, a swim in the Pacific, or a cocktail on your private covered lanai, it’s all at your fingertips from the moment you arrive at Kolea.
Discover high-end details throughout Naupaka Hale: travertine tile floors, African mahogany and cabinetry, and granite counters are only the beginning. Fix the first meal of the day in the designer kitchen, or get straight to grilling on the lanai, where sliding pocket doors double the living room space. A built-in Viking grill, stainless steel mini-fridge, and a wet bar offer an outdoor kitchen experience. Dine al fresco on comfortable lanai furniture or opt for the fine formal dining table inside.
Sink into the stylish sofa and love seat set in the living room to sip your morning coffee or tea. A high-definition TiVo TV lets you catch up with the news before drifting onto the lanai to take in views of the Hualalai, Mauna Kea, and Mauna Loa volcanoes.
The Waikoloa Beach Resort Life
The Kolea Beach Club is steps from your door. There you’ll find an infinity pool and hot tub overlooking the anchaeline ponds and white sands of Anaeho'omalu Bay, plus a private path taking you to the beach. Work up a sweat in the open-air exercise room overlooking the pool and the Pacific.
At the end of the day, retire in one of Naupaka Hale’s two dreamy master suites. One has two queen-size beds and a private foyer with a wet bar, and the other has a heavenly California-King-size bed. Both tastefully decorated tropical bedrooms have baths with deep soaking tubs, walk-in showers, and roomy double-sink vanities.
Pure Kohala Coast Magic
Hawaii is one of the most remote places on the planet, and also one of the most beautiful. Take your pick of beautiful beaches nearby, hike a picturesque trail along Akaka Falls, and stargaze on Mauna Kea. From deep sea fishing to reef snorkeling, the ocean activities are endless. Kolea is also close to high-end golf courses and delicious restaurants.
Family-friendly Kolea Resort is easy walking distance to sand and surf, the resort’s pools, and King and Queen’s Shops. Make your vacation extra-memorable and attend a local luau — you can even see the island from the air with a helicopter ride.
Directly across the street are the King's Shops with its upscale boutiques and restaurants. A short walk away is the Queen's Marketplace with its gourmet grocery, shops, dining and entertainment. A luxury movie theater is now open where you can sip wine or order food while watching the latest flicks. We’ve been there and love it! Waikoloa Beach Resort has two golf courses, as well as the amenities of two adjacent hotels (the Marriott and the Hilton Waikoloa) with their restaurants.
Come and experience the Kohala Coast at Naupaka Hale — an unforgettable vacation in Hawaii’s most coveted regions awaits you.

Most visitors come to our island for laid-back, un-resort adventures they can’t find on Maui, Oahu, or in the Caribbean. Big Island visitors want hikes, underwater adventures, heritage, less-crowded beaches, stargazing, coffee farms, and yes, volcanoes.
So, do you want to see some lava flows? The entire island is comparatively very young and is comprised of relatively recent flows so the effects can be seen everywhere. Check out the stark lava around Kona airport which is built on top of the most recent Hualalai flow (around 1830). Visit the lava tube just north of Kona airport and the fascinating variety of lava fields also in that area, as well as the lava fields/hikes along Saddle Road. Understand that the round hills (“pu’u”) are actual sites of previous lava flows (mini volcanoes). One of the largest is Pu’u Wa’a Wa’a which is a beautiful hike located at a very cool elevation. See the Nene (still protected Hawaiian Geese) located there.
Looking for adventure?? This is truly an island of adventure. There are countless activities and things to do here—many that cannot be done anywhere else in the world. Those who enjoy hiking should trek to Green Sand Beach and to Makalawena—one of the most beautiful, private beaches you can find anywhere. Snorkel with honu (green sea turtles) at Kahalu’u Beach or dolphins at Two Step. Hiking the Maunakea trail is challenging but rewarding, as is the Waipio Valley. Some visitors prefer the gentle paths at Akaka Falls. You can always consider ATV riding, manta ray tours, ziplining, skydiving, horse riding, and other organized outfitters should that suit your needs. The world’s best deep-sea fishing is just off the shore of the Kona Coast. Check out Honokohau Harbor and have a cold beer schooner at the Harbor House.
Foodies take heart—we have lots for you as well. Coffee lovers should have Kona and Ka’u farms at the top of their bucket lists. Do you like fruit? Try our Apple Bananas. Even people who don’t like bananas love these. Also, try our limes, lemons, pineapple, dragonfruit, papaya, mango, lilikoi, for starters. All different kinds of Avocados are available—many of them you cannot get on the mainland such as Kahaluu and Yamagata. Try the Wednesday and Saturday farmers’ markets in Waimea for a sampling of what’s available and in season. Sample the delicious lau lau, superb malasadas at KTA and Tex Drive in, and loco moco in Hilo—the town that created it. Prefer fine dining at terrific restaurants? Try Merriman’s in Waimea, one of the originators of farm to table cuisine. Roy’s at the Waikoloa Beach Resort specializes in Pacific-Asian fusion food. Travel south to the Four Season’s Resort and try a steak at the Hualalai Grille or sushi at the romantic, oceanfront Ulu’s.
Do you seek cultural treasures? The Big Island has so many touchpoints into history/culture no other island can match: from Pu’uhonua o Honaunau to Hawaii’s first Christian church to the Captain Cook Monument to the birthplace of Kamehameha I to Mark Twain Monkeypod, there are locations that resonate so deeply on so many levels.
Enjoy surfing? There are several great surf breaks along Ali’I Drive—names made legendary by Maui Jim sunglasses including: Banyans, Kahaluu, Magic Sands, Honl’s, and others. But, the best surf break is Kohanaiki (“Pine Trees”).
How about snorkeling or diving? Carole and I have been diving all over the world and feel the diving here is second to none. The underwater visibility is often 200 feet or more. The best snorkel spots are probably at Kahaluu Beach (“Turtle Beach”) and Two Step (Honaunau) but great coral can be found all along the Kona and Kohala Coasts. Those who like to just hang out at the beach should check out Mauna Kea and Hapuna—both rated as “The World’s Best Beach” at one time or another. But, locals prefer a multitude of more private beaches.
Find your own adventure on the Big Island. If you find yourself bored here—it’s YOUR fault!
