Available to guests that guarantee a stay at the time of reservation, this limited time only rate is available for travel now through Dec. 20, 2009.

Combined with continuously decreasing rates on Kona airline partners such as Delta, United and American Airlines, the Hilton Waikoloa Village Advanced Purchase Rate allows families to celebrate savings during an extraordinary family vacation experience with stories and memories waiting to be discovered.

Hilton Waikoloa Village offers several ways to become immersed in Hawaiian culture, providing an authentic learning experience for children and families. On-site adventures range from walks along the historic King's Trail that lines the property's shoreline to activities that provide insight into Hawaii's fabled past. Guests enjoy hula dancing and ukelele lessons, Petroglyph trail hikes and journeys through the property's 1,800 piece art collection along the mile-long Museum Walkway.

Basking in the sunny skies of the Kohala Coast, travelers relax in one of three magnificent pools or on a white-sand beach at the private Lagoon. The Kona pool, one of the biggest in the Hawaiian Islands, features a dramatic waterfall, waterslide, several Jacuzzis and a sand-bottom kids pool. The meandering Kohala River pool is a system of four pools interconnected by waterslides and a flowing river, ideal for children. For an adult-only haven, guests are invited to relax amid lush vegetation at the Ocean Tower Pool. The four-acre, ocean fed saltwater Lagoon, set on a private, white-sand beach, is teeming with tropical fish and rare green sea turtles. This protected oasis is perfect for snorkeling, swimming and non-motorized water toys such as kayaks, paddleboats and water bikes.

The Kohala Spa is a cultural rejuvenation experience, with treatments such as the Alaea red sea salt scrub, which ties back to ancient ceremonies where Alaea salt was used to cleanse and purify in healing rituals. The Kohala Sports Club offers a variety of physical activities, such as the Buddha Point Outdoor Walk & Abs Program, a fast-paced trek around the walking paths of the Village with resistance components and stations. At a stop halfway through the program, fitness expert lead abdominal training at Buddha Point, a meditation spot overlooking the Pacific.
