Below are the best Big Island Resorts on the island of Hawaii.


1. Outrigger Kona

The Outrigger Kona is located south of Kona town. It's located on Keauhou Bay which is where the Manta Rays come in the evenings. The Outrigger has a viewing platform to see them from the resort if you don't opt for an excursion where you can get in the water with the Manta Rays. The rooms are being renovated and should be done in late 2023. They have a family pool with a waterslide and an adult only pool. ($$S)
