Kona Meetings Resort
Situated on the iconic lava rocks of the Kona coast, the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa flourishes within the historic lands that were once the birthplace and playgrounds of Hawai‘i’s greatest kings. Today, the resort continues to share the stories of its colorful past through personal connections, indigenous art and local flavors.
With the largest convention center on the Kona Coast in addition to more than 100,000 square feet of outdoor meeting space, Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa looks forward to welcoming your meeting, incentive program, convention or event to Keauhou, a very unique place on Hawaii, the Big Island.
Sheraton Kona is located on 22 oceanfront acres, a short drive from Kona International Airport and Historic Kailua Village, and centrally located for Big Island activities such as stargazing on Mauna Kea Summit, Volcanoes National Park, dramatic valleys and black sand beaches on the Hamakua Coast and world-class snorkeling and even a green sand beach in the south.
A unique blend of adventure, culture, heritage and authentic Hawaiian hospitality awaits meeting attendees at Sheraton Kona, with meeting spaces decorated in modern designs by Hilo-based designer Sig Zane and Hawaiian cultural teambuilding exercises custom-built into each program as desired.
