Hilo on the east coast is the island's capital and the largest town. Almost all the rain that falls on the slopes of Mt Maunea Kea flows to the sea on the eastern side of the Big Island.
Hence, this side of the Big Island is alive with waterfalls, streams, dense jungle-like vegetation. Hilo, is an interesting historic town, known as America's wettest city it blazes with orchids (the largest orchid industry in the world is located here) and tropical plants.
Call Bon Voyage to discuss a two centre stay on the Big Island, each coast has something different to offer you.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay
and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the
video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.
Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside
café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we
wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed
that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!

Wake up on the rim of Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes. This is one of those places where it isn't about the room - not even a little!
