With ocean, garden, or mountain views, the 70 spacious bungalows and suites feature hardwood floors and a focus on unplugging from technology and connecting to nature — most rooms have no TV or radio. Instead you are invited to gaze out over the waves from a private lanai, or get lost in a book on a garden-view terrace. Pale wood and seaside tones furnish the guestrooms, which have ceiling fans and sliding doors to let in the ocean breeze. The Waikoloa Family Suites can sleep up to six and are next door to the three-hole pitch-and-putt golf course, while the ocean-view bungalows are perfect for couples.
