Grand Naniloa Hotel and Banyan Drive Cafes, Hilo

The Big Island, Hawaii, United States


The Grand Naniloa Hotel sits on shimmering Hilo Bay. It's nice to take a stroll along Banyan Drive, under the rows of gorgeous banyan trees, and then duck into the resort for a meal. As you walk into the lobby, the bay is framed by an attractive open-air lounge area where sweet breezes blow. Pass it and walk downstairs to the lawn, gazebo and pool area. This is a nice place to walk around before having a meal or drinks at Hula Hula's. You can sit at the pool at night and have a drink. Or you can eat breakfast inside, enjoying the wonderful views from the many windows. It's lovely! Lunch and dinner are available too. 
After, walk eight minutes to Coconut Island, for more inspiring views. Continue on to Lilioukalani Gardens. Or walk in the other direction to Reed's Bay Beach Park.
For another spot with gorgeous views of the bay, eat at Hilo Bay Cafe on its big balcony. It is open for lunch or dinner, closed Sundays. There are a few items on the menu that are somewhat affordable, such as a burger $16 or fish and chips $18. Skip the chicken pot pie.
