Rays on the Bay benefits from an unparalleled location; our restaurant is perched on lava cliffs so close to the ocean that it offers a perfect view to Keauhou’s resident manta rays feeding offshore in their natural habitat.
First, enjoy Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay's newest experience, our Manta Talks, at 6 p.m. in the Manta Ray Learning Center adjacent to Rays on the Bay.
After dinner, see the majestic rays swimming in their natural environment at Paakai Point. As you view the manta rays, enjoy a refreshing libation from our restaurant!
Note: Manta Ray sightings are never guaranteed because they are in their natural environment. However, the best time to view them is after 9 p.m. when the dive boats go back into the harbor. So if it's mantas you're after, make a later reservation!
Ulu Lounge is now available for private dining parties of 10 or more people to reserve for the evening. Perfect for a special occasion or a dinner with friends and ohana! Rays on the Bay will help you create a unique menu of pupus, wines, cold beer, and cocktails that's sure to please everyone in your party.
