Comfortable, laid back Hilo is the gateway to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and an authentic taste of Hawaii's Big Island. The Hilo Hawaiian Hotel is located right on Hilo Bay and only two miles from Hilo Airport. Old banyan trees line the drive to the hotel, most of which were planted in the 1930's by celebrities such as Babe Ruth, Amelia Earhart and Cecil B. DeMille. Mauna Kea looms in the background and the arched bridge that leads to Coconut Island is only steps from the doors of the resort. The hotel is flanked by a beautiful beach, the Liliuokalani Gardens and the Naniloa Country Club.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Kilauea Military Camp (KMC) is a historic mountain-top setting inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, on Crater Rim Drive, yards from the summit caldera of Kilauea. Its history is as old as Hawaii Volcanoes National Park having been established in the same year 1916. What once began as an idea by Hilo Board of Trade members for a training ground for the National Guard and an Army "vacation and health recruiting station" has become one of Hawaii's most unique resorts for the military. In its eighty-nine years of existence, KMC had served as a training facility, housed a Navy camp, hosted numerous dignitaries including General Dwight D. Eisenhower who later became the president of the United States and briefly served as an internment camp and later as a prisoner-of-war camp during World War II. While the camp still maintains its historical charm, renovations to the camp in the last decade have enhanced KMC’s facilities and services making it one of the military’s favorite vacation resort. Only America’s military members, their families, and other categories of authorized patrons (such as Road Scholar participants) are able to enjoy its rustic charms, and well-situated facilities.

The only hotel on the island, charming A-frame architecture with Polynesian style decor, ocean front detached cottages, located a few miles from town and a genuine hideaway from all things mainstream. There is breathtaking natural beauty, deserted beaches, no high-rise buildings, and an ‘old’ Hawaii feel.
2 nights
The Waikiki Resort Hotel is very well located in the heart of Waikiki, half a block away from the Kuhio Beach section of world famous Waikiki Beach and in the shadow of iconic Diamond Head. Being near Kuhio Beach is a real plus, as it is the most interesting part of Waikiki Beach because it is wide, sandy, nicely landscaped, and it is home to the beachboy stands which send out surfers and outrigger canoes. The hotel is also within walking distance of other popular attractions such as Kapiolani Park (great for morning or evening walks), the Honolulu Zoo, the Waikiki Aquarium, the International Marketplace, and a multitude of restaurants and other attractions.
