Romance amidst turtles, temples and tropical gardens

Kailua-Kona, Big Island, Hawaii: Outrigger Keauhou Beach
Resort’s 2007 Romance Package offers couples a chance to enjoy an island vacation amongst colorful sea creatures, ancient Hawaiian temples and lushly tended tropical gardens.

Located oceanside along the Kailua-Kona coast of Hawaii’s Big Island, the property boasts one of the most extraordinary locations in the state. Expansive ocean tidepools bordering the hotel grounds shelter Hawaiian green sea turtles and other marine life. On any given day, it’s possible to spot as many as a dozen of these protected creatures basking in the sun or drifting leisurely in the calm water.

Nearby, remnants of two ancient Hawaiian temples pay homage to the island’s ancient religious past; a massive kuula (fisherman’s) stone stands silently in the garden, said to have been brought over from a neighboring island by the Hawaiian people; King David Kalakaua’s summer cottage, re-built on its original site, sits next to natural pools; and indigenous and native plants thrive in carefully tended gardens.

Couples can enjoy these cultural and environmental treasures along with several romantic amenities included in the hotel’s 2007 Romance Package: three nights in an ocean view room, champagne upon arrival and keepsake flutes, daily breakfast for two, $100 credit at the on-site Kalona Spa, and a daily mid-sized rental car. The three-night package is priced at $770 USD per room based on double occupancy, and is valid through December 21, 2007. Subject to availability and change; some restrictions may apply.

[GADS_NEWS]The hotel’s enchanting environment — boasting lush gardens and beautiful outdoor sites with spectacular ocean views — also makes the hotel a popular location for weddings and receptions. The Kahaluu Conference Room, covering 6,900 square feet indoors, can be converted into as many as four smaller rooms to accommodate indoor receptions of various sizes. The hotel’s experienced catering team is available to assist with coordinating all details of a wedding. They can be contacted by phone 808-324-2554 or fax 808-324-2565.
