Enjoy the diversity of Hawaii’s Big Island with family and friends at Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa. From stargazing atop majestic Mauna Kea to tours of nearby Kona Coffee farms to abundant ocean adventures launching from Keauhou Bay and an active volcano a day’s drive away, this island has it all.

Within the resort, the full-service Ho`ola Spa is a place of healing and relaxation. The 3,200-square foot spa facility was built with Hawaiian simplicity, yet has an air of distinct comfort. Indulge in Hawaiian lomi lomi massage or hot pohaku (stone) massage treatments. A hair and nail salon, soothing Vichy showers and oceanfront treatment patios with magnificent views provide just the pampering you deserve. Ho`ola is the Hawaiian word for healing and true to its name, Ho`ola Spa adds a nurturing touch to every visit.

For culinary adventures, a taste of the islands headlines every menu at our restaurants. Sample refreshing tropical beverages poolside at Manta Ray Bar & Grill. Big Island grown fruits, vegetables, and freshly caught fish highlight romantic dinners at Kai. Stunning ocean vistas from Crystal Blue Lounge are second only to the sight of graceful manta ray feeding in the surf below. Wake up the day with fresh 100% Kona coffee at Keauhou Bay Coffee Company where Italian gelatos and smoothies cool the afternoons and light refresing snacks fill in the day.

Plan on a day of fun-in-the-sun at our immense Manta Ray Super Pool & Slide. Children can frolic in interactive fountains or play in a sandy-bottomed pool area created just for them. A 200-foot waterslide, whirlpool spas, and waterfalls provide memorable amusement for all.

Two tennis courts, a basketball court, and a sand volleyball court means the decision each day is to do as much, or as little as you like. The Keauhou Convention Center and Bayside Wedding Center help form the complete resort experience for whatever your island plans may entail.

Find all the comforts of home in our 521 spacious guest rooms and suites, each with a private Ianai. Beautiful island views and the celebrated bliss of our Sheraton Sweet Sleeper(SM) Bed helps everyone relax as plans are made for the next extraordinary day in paradise. Stay connected with friends, family, or the office through High Speed Internet Access, available resort wide.

Sheraton was very beautiful location. It is a little bit out of downtown Kona, but it was close enough so that it was still convenient. If you want to have a good time on the Big Island, Kona is the best place on the island. The Sheraton was out of the way enough so that the wedding location was not busy with other people. It was oceanfront and it felt like we had the place all to ourselves. There was a lot of trees and pretty flowers which helped set the mood. The food was amazing and the staff was helpful and friendly!

Natalie Houston and her assistant, Laura, did a great job with helping my husband and I pull off a low-cost, beautiful wedding at the Bayside Chapel at the Kona Sheraton.

They helped find a guitarist for me, Bula, who was an amazing singer (and so handsome he made my girlfriends practically swoon). Bula sang the songs that we chose for our wedding--Fields of Gold by Sting and Is This Love? by Bob Marley-- I was amazed during the ceremony that he knew all the words to the song! I had expected him to just play the music, not sing.

Our officiant, Lona Lyons, was wonderful as well. Lona was also secured for us by Natalie Houston at the Sheraton. Lona was a soothing speaker who had written a lovely sermon.

The Bayside Chapel itself was so beautiful, with the windows open to let in the views of the palm trees and the ocean, that I was glad that I did not order flowers. I did order a lei for my husband and me-- I wish now that I did not order the heavily scented lei as it was pretty overpowering and almost smelled artificial.

My photographer was allowed to photograph our portraits for a couple hours after the cermony concluded on the beautiful grounds around the Sheraton. The resulting pictures are just gorgeous. The inside of the chapel photographs very well, too. We had a 9:30 AM ceremony, which we are glad of as it was already getting quite warm by that time.

The Sheraton staff were very considerate. My father got it in his head that the Sheraton needed to have water on hand for all our guests. I was embarrassed to later hear about how demanding he was-- but Natalie and Laura never told me about what happened-- they did their best to make sure that I was relaxed the day of the wedding and went ahead and brought water for the wedding guests.

My advice for you is to make sure you read the contract very carefully-- some things are quite expensive. I kept my expenses to the chapel, officiant, and guitarist-- and 2 leis-- and made out with paying only about $2500 for the entire ceremony. "extras" like champagne and food for a few guests may cost you an extra $500-- and there are other fees that may be tacked on to that, like a $250 "reception" or "food and beverage service" fee. You can get away with not getting the leis by buying them for about $5 each at Costco.

Also, if you do not hear from the Sheraton about a month before the wedding date, go ahead and write them for confirmation details. There are a LOT of confirmation details to go over, even with a wedding as simple as I had. I had not heard from the Sheraton until about 2 weeks before my wedding date-- it turned out that they needed more confirmation faxes from me and answers to logistical questions. (I had thought the details had already been ironed out months prior to that).
