Expert Review

Built in 1965 by Laurance Rockefeller, this staid Kohala Coast property reopened in December 2008 after a major $150 million renovation, which enlarged the 252 rooms and added a spa. On the 18-hole championship golf course designed by his father, Rees Jones recently replanted the famous third hole - the one that Robert Trent Jones once promised Rockefeller would be the most beautiful in the world. The hotel also hosts an 11-court seaside tennis club, weekly luaus, and a wide crescent of white sand beach that's the finest of any resort in Hawaii.
