The 7-acre, 3-star Outrigger Royal Sea Cliff cascades down a spectacular lava rock bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With its white stucco walls and flat roofs, the two wings of the condominium are terraced deeply into the bluff, creating an illusion of it being a single story, instead of the seven it is. In between the wings is an outdoor atrium with waterfalls, cascading stream, lush tropical greenery and benches to enjoy the stunning views. On either side of the condo are lawn terraces, a barbeque area and always, the view.
Property amenities include two tennis courts; whirlpool spas; two ocean front swimming pools, one freshwater and one saltwater, with sun decks; barbeque grills and picnic area; weekly schedule of on site cultural activities and so much more. There is a Mandatory Check-out cleaning fee will be added to room cost at check-out. Optional housekeeping service during stay is by request (fee) only allowing the privacy of spacious condominium style living. And for something special, look for the cabana and gazebo located at the end of the property overlooking the ocean – a perfect place to watch the sun set.
While there is no beach as such at the condo (the Big Island is mostly lava along this coastline) there is a wonderful swimming and snorkeling area just about 1 or 2 miles away, called Kahaluu Beach Park and well worth a visit. You might even be able to swim with a Hawaiian Green Turtle or two, but definitely can enjoy the sand beach and the usually calm waters.
There is no restaurant or bar on site, but the Royal Sea Cliff is only 1 mile south of Kona where there are many restaurants of every ethnic cuisine. But not only do many visitors choose a condominium over a hotel because they are often less crowded and quieter, but you can enjoy many of your meals “at home”, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner. Think dining outside on your lanai sipping on a glass of wine and watching the sun go down. Or in the winter months, watching the Humpback Whales wander by on their annual migration to the Hawaiian Islands from Alaska.
At the Royal Sea Cliff, you can even grill your own hamburgers or steaks and enjoy an al fresco meal. Best of all, you will save money and can use those savings for a special excursion or a romantic dinner for two. Costco, Wal-Mart and Safeway Grocery are in the Kona area as well as other smaller grocery/food outlets.
