Visitors to Hawai`i Island often remark about what a special place it is. The unique landscape plays an important role, as do the many islandwide activities from which to choose, from touring an active volcano to playing championship golf to myriad ocean sports. But it’s really the people who live here that make the biggest difference.
“There’s a true spirit of aloha here,” says Scott Head, Vice President of Resort Operations for Waikoloa Beach Resort. “You feel a welcoming graciousness from just about everyone you meet.”
Such aloha is deep-rooted in the Hawai`i Island community, and it manifests in many ways. Two shining examples are the Hawai`i Lodging & Tourism Association Charity Walk and the Kona Marathon, both of which take place at Waikoloa Beach Resort and support vital charity and non-profit work on the island.
Both the Charity Walk and the Kona Marathon require a commitment from Waikoloa Land Company to allow these events that are so important to the community to take place at the Resort.
