Beautiful Keauhou!

Situated at the south end of Ali‘i Drive, Keauhou offers resort-style living within proximity of beautiful Keauhou Bay.

Site of the Kona Country Club, Keauhou showcases stellar ocean views beneath sunny skies and tranquil ocean breezes, ideal for recreation. The 18-hole championship course includes a driving range, locker rooms, and putting-and-chipping practice greens.  Golf, tennis, shopping and dining are found in abundance in Keauhou.

One of the largest lighted tennis facilities in Hawaii, Holua Tennis & Pickleball Center recently hosted the Fed Cup play featuring professional tennis stars Venus Williams and Sloane Stephens. The facility includes 11 tennis courts highlighted by an ATP and WTA Stadium Court.

On Keauhou Bay itself, a sand volleyball court and an outrigger canoe club offer recreational opportunities for residents. Home of the former Keauhou Kona Yacht Club, Akule Supply Co. serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual setting overlooking the bay.

Presiding over the south side of the bay, Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa hosts evening dining and entertainment at its flagship restaurant, Rays on the Bay. Floodlights cast a glow on the water below, attracting manta rays in the wild that gracefully glide below the restaurant to feed on plankton. Indeed, Keauhou Bay is the capital of manta-ray viewing on the Big Island, where guided snorkel cruises depart nightly from Keauhou Harbor.

The centerpiece of Keauhou Resort, the upscale Keauhou Shopping Center features a multiplex movie cinema, KTA Super Stores grocery store, Longs Drugs, a post office, bank, health center and urgent care center. Dining options abound, including Kenichi Pacific sushi, seafood and steakhouse; Bianelli’s pizzeria; and Sam Choy’s Kai Lanai. Additional eateries include L&L Hawaiian BBQ, Los Habaneros Mexican café, Peaberry & Galette coffeehouse, Royal Thai Café, Subway, and the newly opened Tropics Tap House.

Birthplace of Kamehameha III, Keauhou inhabits a rich history as the summer playground of Hawaii’s chiefs and royalty. Considered sacred by native Hawaiians, the surrounding area emanates the gravitus of monumental battles that took place prior to the unification of the Hawaiian Islands. Ancient burial sites and an authentic holua slide (Hawaiian sledding) are still visible in the cliffside above the bay.
