In the islands, the vacation never truly ends, but there are some places that are ideal for fresh start. Turn over a new palm leaf in Hawaii's Keauhou Bay—whose name in Hawaiian literally means "new beginnings"—with at one-night stay for two in an Ocean View ($149) or Ocean Front Room ($179) at the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay.

Offering a clean slate of sunny décor and modern amenities, the historic resort was recently renovated to include velvety carpeting and flat-screen TVs, as well as the visual art of renowned Hawaii designer Sig Zane, whose work complements the unparalleled beauty of the Big Island.

"The largest island in the Hawaiian chain, the Big Island of Hawaii is where Mother Nature pulls out all the stops, from fiery volcanoes, sparkling waterfalls and black-lava deserts to tropical rainforests, alpine meadows and miles of golden-, black- and even green-sand beaches," says The New York Times. "For a respite from breathtaking views, pack a picnic and head for the black-sand beaches of Waipio Valley, where you can laze the day away in the sun."

Surrender your worries as you tumble into your room's Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed—packed with plush down pillows and super-soft linens—and laze among the space's nature-inspired furnishings before hitting the resort's 14,100-square-feet Manta Ray Super Slide & Pool. Complete with two whirlpool spas, a river system, and a 200-foot-long lava tube water slide—the largest on the island—the pool packs in plenty of activities for an enlivening afternoon.

Polish your palate with a trip to Rays on the Bay, where you'll use your daily $30 food-and-beverage credit to dine oceanside. Sample a drink from the restaurant's rum bar or indulge in an artisan pizza—either way, you'll be left breathless during the nightly visits from the largest species of rays in the world.

Paint yourself a new perspective—an Escape to the Kona Coast offers a packed pallet of inspiring scenery.

  • "The resort's luau takes place on a grassy lawn with a backdrop of coconut trees, where the sweet-potato salad and fresh ahi poke are the stars of the buffet. Or grab a cocktail at the Manta Ray Bar & Grill and watch the mantas glide in the water below."
