Big Island, Hawaii

Satellite image of Hilton resort on Big Island.Alena and I booked our next-next vacation. We’re going to go back to Hawaii for our 3 year wedding anniversary. But if last time we went to Oahu and stayed in Honolulu, this time we’re going to to the Big Island.

We’re going to stay in luxurious Hilton Waikoloa Village resort. And the best part is that we don’t have to pay1 anything for the hotel at all thanks to us being a part of Hilton Honors program.

What we do have to pay2 for is the flight. But flights these days seem to be much cheaper than they were even when we went to Hawaii the first time in 2005. We’re going to rent a car and explore the whole island. I can’t wait to visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park for example.

This should be a great honeymoon vacation. mrgreen I can’t wait.

  1. We’re staying here for 8 nights. Normally each night runs 40,000 points here, but Gold VIP members get a discount, so we’re spending 235,000. And we have plenty more left for long weekend trips. []
  2. No direct flights, so there is a plane change in LAX. Total cost is going to be $1,782.80 for the 2 of us. The flight is about 13 hours each way. []
