About the Accommodations

For this issue’s fashion feature spread across the dramatic landscape of Hawai`i Island, the HILuxury team stayed at Hilton Waikoloa Village’s newly renovated Palace Tower. The distinctive tower, designed with the Hale `ike “House of Senses” concept in mind, boasts 369 rooms and 26 suites.

Hale `ike immerses guests’ senses with intricate details sprinkled throughout the tower. From the view of vibrant Big Island flora, to the scent of freshly roasted Kona coffee, Hale `ike is surely an oasis for the mind and body.

The Hale `ike experience carries into each hotel room. Every detail from the soft, plush feel of seersucker bathrobes to the resort’s signature Kohala Spa Coco Mango soap to sprawling views from the lanai, guests are treated with a wide array of amenities.

The Hilton Waikoloa village is no stranger to excellence. The award-winning resort is internationally recognized for its breathtaking interiors, Museum Walkway, resort tram and boat transportation, ocean-fed snorkeling lagoon and Dolphin Quest educational center (photos courtesy Hilton Waikoloa Village).
