Walking inside the Hilton

Here are some pictures I took in the Hilton . This is an entrance of the main lobby.

The valet parking is interesting to me because it is very uncommon in Japan.

I was able to see only blackish fish, not colorful one in the lagoon.   My son saw a sea turtle from a boat here.

Several parrots stayed still without a cage.   They didn’t speak unfortunately.

Rocky shore outside the Hilton.   It may be as well to swim in a pool.

You can swim with a dolphin here by joining “Dolphin Quest”.

Although there is no photo, the most impressive sight was a night sky.   I was able to see many stars.  Fortunately,  our stay was in the period of the new moon, and so it was a good time to see stars in the dark sky.   When I was looking at the sky,  I saw several shooting stars, and one of them was very bright one.  Wow!  I felt like becoming one with nature.   It is said that a volcano “Mauna Kea” near Waikoloa is the famous star watching spot and has many celestial observatories from overseas.  I want to join a stargazing tour on this mountain sometime in the future.

Hilton Waikoloa Village

We stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa Village for three nights in the Big Island.  The hotel was so huge that a monorail was running inside.

A boat was also used to transport hotel guests.    It was so fantastic to watch the starry sky from the boat.

It’s possible to walk around inside the hotel, but  you would be tired.   Pink is accommodations and blue is routes of transportation.

Though the room was not bad, I prefer a condo.  I wanted to stay at Aston’s condo at first, but I heard that only Hilton guests can use the facilities such as pools, so booked the Hilton.   Actually, there was no check of guests unless renting something.

There were three towers, Place, Lagoon and Ocean.   Our room was in the Palace tower.   My complaint was that only the Palace tower had no laundry room!   So I went to another tower by monorail to do the laundry.   In addition,  it was not easy to find the laundry room, it was like a maze.

The view from the entrance.       We were able to see the beautiful blue sky and sea every day.
