Aloha Hawaii!

Spend 14 days in January/February 2018 (Jan. 25 – Feb. 8, 2018) in paradise. Hawaii, the “BigIsland, will be your destination. It’s called “The Big Island” for a reason, and your holiday will include one bedroom fully equipped accommodations on both sides of theIsland.  Your holiday starts with three days on the Kona coast at Sea Village Resort. Start your morning off with a freshly brewed cup of Kona coffee before heading off for a deep-sea fishing excursion or a round of championship golf. There's always tomorrow for that long walk on the beach, tennis match or shopping extravaganza. Located a short distance from the heart of the Kona city district, your fully equipped Sea Village stay offers a seaside swimming pool and the perfect starting point for snorkeling and diving adventures. It's also the ultimate vantage point for whale watching and your very own spectacular Hawaiian sunset.

 Then head to the other side of theIslandfor 6 magical days. Situated on the southeast coast of the Big Island, Sea Mountain Resort is steps away from the legendary Punalu'u Black Sand Beach and its seasonal inhabitants—the endangered hawksbill turtles. While you let the turtles enjoy their natural habitat, there's plenty for you to do. You can experience the tropical splendor ofHawaiiwith championship golf, swimming, tennis and recreation areas ideally situated around your accommodation. Then again, maybe you'll venture toHawaiiVolcanoesNational Parkand catch a glimpse of restless Kilauea andMauna Loaand the spectacular wonder of these still active volcanoes.

 Finish off your holiday with another 5 days back in Kona at Sea Village Resort.
