While in Kona for the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival the Devil Dog stayed at the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort Hotel, in a fabulous 4th floor oceanfront room overlooking the scene above, waves crashing against a steller point of land carved from an ancient lava flow.
The bar at night has the added attraction of consistantly attracting a festival of manta rays just offshore through the use of floodlights, and as cool as that seems, there are actually snorkeling excursions thru Fairwind Tours to swim amongst the manta rays on a night dive.
The hotel is beautifully appointed, fabulously located, and features a lovely pool, water slide, full service spa, and a terrific restaurtant, Kai, featuring excellent fresh seafood. It also served as a perfect base to explore the coffee farms high above in Holualoa, just above in Keauhou, or just down the road a bit in Kealekekua, Captain Cook and the legendary Honaunau.
Thank you Sheraton for a fabulous week and a terrific base of operations.
